Zach's father defends "ex-gay" attempts; said to advocate "spleen washing" as well

by Jeremy Hooper

   The father of Zach Stark -- the Tennessee teen who blogged about his parents' choice to enroll him into the Love In Action "ex-gay" camp against his will -- has given an interview with the Christian Bible Network in which he defends his parental actions.

In the chit-chat, Joe Stark cites faulty statistics about 'mo mortality rates and the dangers of the gay "lifestyle" as reasons why he chose to "give [Zach] some options that society doesn't give him today." However, he gives no indication as to why the more sanity-driven options of loving, accepting, and informing his son of ways to protect himself weren't seen as viable.

If you'd like to read the whole of Papa Stark's interview, we've included the link below. Though you should hurry, as if Mr. Stark should find the article to go against his own notions of what Christian journalism should be, it's likely he'll work to have the conflicting parts removed and reprinted.

**Note: It is our sincere hope that Mr. Stark will realize that what is being fed to him is propoganda, and that he will eventually learn to love his gay son for who he truly is. We don't think him to be evil, just temporarily misguided.
