Press Release of the Day

Less common than emails of the day, but sometimes just as crazy. This one is from PFOX’s Greg Quinlan:

The homosexual push for “equal marriage,” otherwise known as genderless marriage, can only lead to a ban on heterosexual rights. With a President in power who endorses gay causes and readily misuses executive orders, and emboldened by their numerous wins for gay rights at the legislative and judicial level, homosexuals have now moved beyond equal rights to the “more equal than you” level. As a result, gay organizations are working to ban that practice they fear the most — heterosexual behavior.

Witness the ban on heterosexual therapy successfully pushed by homosexual groups in California. Even though no scientific evidence exists of a “gay gene,” parents in California are now prohibited from taking their children to see a therapist to resolve their child’s unwanted same-sex attractions.

Quinlan has long tried to claim that “ex-gays” are a persecuted minority. It now looks like he’s trying to portray straight people — over 90% of the population — as an endangered species. He calls California’s law prohibiting licensed therapists from offering Sexual Orientation Change Efforts to minors a “heterosexual ban.” Which somehow has something to do with same-sex marriage, even though California currently does not have same-sex marriage. Go figure.

You almost have to feel sorry for someone that far divorced from reality — but then, of course, there’s a good chance he’s just a cynical, manipulative liar.

I don’t think I know anyone dumb enough to believe all that crap. How exactly they keep thinking 80% or 90% of the population is somehow an “oppressed” group, I don’t understand. Whether its bogus claims of Christian persecution or crap like this, I don’t get it.

@Snowman: I don’t know anyone that dumb either. Not anyone I claim as friends. I remember when I was small, that was the only time I can remember being aware I DIDN’T know something. The parental units filled our house with great books and literature known to man. Encouraged as much education and seeking it out as possible.
And I remember adults who knew THEY didn’t know, and would defer to the perso they understood was trained, or experienced or educated in whatever subject.
Most essentially though, I was taught to not argue with someone whose experience exceeded my own, and to learn from them.
There was no reason to believe, for example, a non Jewish anti Semite and their opinions on Jews.
I knew when I didn’t know much about ex gays. And over 15 years ago, sought out every website, information and so on, to find out.
What happened then, was interesting. Those claiming that new situation, tended to be very cagey, or reserved about the actual change over, and their experience was ALL the same by way of stereotype about what homosexuality is or means.
And any more probative questioning, got stonewalled with sermons or dismissal.
Peaking my suspicions, or needs to ask more questions even further.

I had no opinion about ex gays in the beginning, but some of their behavior was rude in their dismissal. And eventually, putting certain things together without THEIR help, made me come away with a sour attitude towards them.

They make gay teens pay dearly for their ex gay activity. And they’ll deny they have anything to do with the public confusion about homosexuality or the impetus they give to those who are willing to discriminate. And that’s the essential reason why it’s impossible to respect anyone like that.

But the twisting they do to make themselves out to be victims of the prejudice or threat, is at the level of paranoid schizophrenia. And the people who believe them, stupid to the point of lowered IQ points.

He sees the handwriting on the wall and he knows that his anti-gay hate gravy train is going to leave the station without him. He makes a handsome living defrauding the gullible with lies and hate.

Someone should publicly confront Quinlin about this to demonstrate to those who aren’t totally stupid what an idiot he is.

He thinks it is perfectly fine that str8 parents should be able to haul their kid off to a therapist to alter his sexual orientation, so would he support a gay couple hauling their kid off to alter that kid’s heterosexual attraction?

Great point Jerry, I’m certainly going to bring that up in future discussions with the anti-gays.

We’ve been causing natural disasters all over the world from the beginning of time and now we are driving hetros to extinction.

Don’t f*ck with us!

What Are Little Boys Made Of?

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers. This story is a stark reminder that there are severe and damaging consequences when therapists try to ensure that boys will be boys.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.
