Video: Who knew the 'gay cure' could be found at Staples?

by Jeremy Hooper

This from Wayne Besen's Truth Wins Out organization:

Ah yes, the "pain away the gay" method. Because that is truly what God intended -- for folks to stifle their passions and desires with everyday office supplies. When you're done with the rubber bands on the wrist, just put a pair of binder clips on your gonads. If that doesn't work, there's always the paper cutter to wholly eliminate the possibility of any future yearnings.

Of course the rubber that these kids should be encouraging -- well, it doesn't go on your wrist. But unfortunately, rather than focus on that which can truly be of benefit to all of us, safe sex, the moral authorities of the world are more concerned with unsafe sex "changes." But then again, who needs scientifically proven ways to effectively reduce true ills when you have unscientific methods that are designed to change the core of one's being because certain religious beliefs deem that core to itself be ill?

Oy vey.

Though we do hear that the "ex-gay" movement is shying away from this particular method. Yes, rumor has it that since Wayne & Co. are making their rubber band technique look so ridiculous, the movement is instead installing a switch in their followers' genitalia that, whenever set off by desire, will trigger the following sound clip:

We think we're joking. But considering who we're dealing with, we're not entirely sure!

Your thoughts

I wish this was a joke, unfortunately, the 'mo foes made me do the same thing when I was "in treatment."

Cruel, embarrassing, and ineffective, he's right.
