Unfair movement targets fairer sex

by Jeremy Hooper

Exodus International, the nation's most well known organization for "curing" and "fixing" homosexuality, has announced a new initiative that specifically targets women.  Says the head of the gal-targeting initiative, Yvette Schneider:

"The Christian Church must be a place that powerfully conveys compassionate truth to hurting women," ... "My goal is to help more women find real hope and help as they journey towards wholeness in their femininity in Christ, and to equip others to do the same."

Hmm.  And here we thought we were trying to fight the stereotype that females before worse in science.  Now Exodus wants to muck all that up by fostering the "we have no real basis for this but we keep saying it anyway" scientific method?  That's super annoying, both to lesbians and biology teachers!

No word on what methods the "ex-gays" will use to specifically address the special needs of the female set.  Though we did see IV bags and syringes marked "sugar, spice, and everything nice" stashed outside Exodus' headquarters.

Your thoughts

I'm guessing brainwashing women to think that working outside the home is sinful, instructing them how to wear skirts and makeup, how to do their hair, how to be submissive, etc.

"powerfully conveys compassionate truth to hurting women"

Which means some drug-addicted child rapist with a gambling problem has the authority to talk down to women, and blame their parents for being lesbian.

Just another "give us all your money, for nothing in return" scam, courtesy of the Exodus queens.

"Sugar, spice and everything nice"? So, Exodus is going to turn lesbians into the Powerpuff Girls? Cool!

"...a new ministry aimed at helping women embrace their faith and God-given femininity"

Would that be the Pam Anderson Variety of God-given femininity or the Marjorie Main version?

"as they journey towards wholeness in their femininity in Christ"


What does that even mean? We aren't "whole" women unless Jesus, a man, shows us how to be?

From what I can tell, the Exodus ex-gay men seem to be pretty good at embracing their God-given femininity, as well.

Men are more beautiful than women are - thus we are the fairer sex.

I'm so girly, my straight friends call me a girly-girl. So I guess I don't need ministering to, right?
