Video: It's not TV. It's 'ex-H-O-M-O '

by Jeremy Hooper

We're not sure how we've missed these sad yet campy "ex-gay" videos in the months since they were uploaded. However, the important thing is that we've found them:

Oh my. These really look like sketches from "Saturday Night Living As A Shell of A Human"!

Yet unfortunately, the nuttiness in this sketchy comedy is used to convince scores of innocent gays and those who love them that all homosexuals are "demonic" and disconnected from God, and can only be healed by giving up their truths. So while it's easy to roll your eyes and laugh at the amateurish production values and the cast members who seem to be playing against type in some ill-fitting costumes, we must also remember that these sorts of tools are used as weapons against gay lives and loves. Even the worst "SNL" sketch doesn't literally bomb anyone's mental or physical well-being!

**Once again we see molestation and abuse as a uniting theme for these "ex-gays." It would often seem that many of them did have pain in their lives that they needed to overcome, and they were just misdirected into believing that their true sexual orientation was part of the needed overhaul.
