Video: Mike, Juliet, and a man who's been attracted to them both

by Jeremy Hooper

On this morning's edition of "The Morning Show with Mike & Juliet," a discussion on "ex-gay" therapy was held. Check it out:

You know, it's always funny to see the face the "ex-gay" movement puts on when appearing on shows like this. Alan Chambers' mealy-mouthed answer to whether he interprets the Bible to speak against gay people? Brother, PLEASE! Religious condemnation is the crux of his entire movement! And his attempts to make it seem as he is not trying to stifle gays from living their lives? Again -- give us a frickin' break! Alan routinely speaks out against any and every bit of legislation that would afford gays more equality. He's even been on record recently as saying of the LGBT community:

"The people who are transgendered, the people who are in homosexuality, I would venture to say from personal experience that they’re not at peace," ..."and that true love isn’t able to be found in those types of relationships."

It may make him more palatable to the daytime TV viewing audience to say he is encouraging a "free and tolerant society." However, those of us who spend our daytimes viewing his press releases and quotes know otherwise! If it truly were about his individual choices and right to embrace certain information (no matter how unsupported or medically unsound), then no gay activist would have a problem with him. The problem is in his attempts to use his own personal choice and beliefs for discriminatory political gain and dangerous sociological experimentation!

Your thoughts

Alan Chambers is full of it. He doesn't believe in freedom, unless its the same path (freedom) that all ex-gays take. If he was truly for freedom then he and his organizations wouldn't be so heavily into denying the GLBT community the same rights they so freely enjoy.

And Graves talks about how no one chooses to be gay. However, we have a choice in how we act on those feelings he states. Simply put, acting on your gay feelings is wrong and you must remain celibate if you can't change your orientation.

I can see right through all the crap they spew out of their mouths. Why don't they just admit their real agenda and stop trying to sugar coat their beliefs in the public square!

I nearly spit out my Wheaties when Alan said "homosexuality is for the young!" WTF?! I'll be 38 next year...which makes me older than Alan (I believe). I'm in a great relationship. We've got a kid who'll be 9 on Sunday. Heck, we're pretty much your average, almost middle-aged, family that just happens to be gay. "For the young"? What a dufus!!!

On another note, I come from Alan's religious background and you are right...that was the most mealy mouth sidestep I've heard!!

Alan is like a whack-a-mole game, slap him down on one talk show and he will just pop up on another.

It's sad that people can't see beyond their bad experience.

On what grounds would he presume that gays cannot have a happy and well-rounded life and still be gay? His own experience is just that, ***his*** experience.
It's awfully arrogant to presume that he knows better than I do whether my relationship is fulfilling. Just because he couldn't, or wouldn't make one work, doesn't mean others can't.

The "gay is for the young" and ‘I ain’t cute and young anymore so I better grab a woman who I can look old ‘n wrinkled in my old age’ sermon from milk toast sheep wolf evangelical Exodus president Alan Chambers, is substantially quite humorous. To add to the laughing hyena side show, Alan Chambers side stepped when asked if he still had same sex attraction; glided right over it like a skating lube container at the Ice Capades. This is known as the Freudian ‘YES!’.
The religious right are such professionals at shooting themselves in their own feet that I wonder how they can have any toes left. But then maybe they don’t.
With cheshire cat glee, I’m watching the media vanquish religion as we knew it, while saving lives and self esteem, due to hocus pocus biblical absurdity kicking and screaming it’s way to the forefront for dumpster duty.
I can only hope the media keeps moving forward with it’s jack hammer double punch knock outs at flagrant religous cocky pop, or poppy cock, your choice. This is one side show very much worth a suck.
