Video: True desire doesn't need an ad budget!

by Jeremy Hooper

Because we know you've been waiting, here now is the commercial for Exodus International's 2008 "Freedom Conference":

Wow, great theatrics. If only sexual truth and biological reality were pieces of musical theatre wherein dramaturgs and directors could mold the script in any way they see fit, then their play-acting might be valid. But considering that for the vast majority of us, the only script we've ever needed to get in touch with our characters is the one that's been dictated to us by our mind since birth, we personally think that Exodus should focus less on the smoke and mirrors that come with slick productions and pseudo religo-psycho-babble, and more on what's TRULY going on in in their participants' heads. Because once the elaborate sets have been struck and the audience has returned home, those who have witnessed the big-budgeted spectacle still have to live within those same minds and bodies. All-too-often, what may have appeared as an inspiring tale of triumph while in the theatre of misplaced hope turns into quite a tragedy when put into real-life practice. And when they find out that art simply not always imitate life, who's going to be there to help them? When they feel like they too could have been a star in "The Ex-gay Show" if only they'd have worked a little harder, who's going to stop them from causing themselves harm? Who's going to restore comedy to a tale that's been infused with unnecessary dramatic conflict?

Exodus' cost of admission vs. the cost of admitting one's truth: The former is pricey while the latter is priceless. Don't ever let artifice come at the expense of your reality!

Your thoughts

"Exodus' cost of admission vs. the cost of admitting one's truth: The former is pricey while the latter is priceless."

Your way with words is "priceless" as well.
