Video: Comically oversized magnets, comically undercooked views

by Jeremy Hooper

Yesterday, professional "ex-gay" activist Richard "beat a pillow with a tennis racket" Cohen made some bloggy waves when he lashed out against the Lifetime TV movie Prayers For Bobby. Now in this, a clip from the upcoming documentary Chasing the Devil: Inside the Ex-Gay Movement, see yet another reason (we're around seven billion of them now) why Richard, while possibly a credible speaker on the subject of elementary magnetic science, is far from a trusted name in the field of sexual orientation:

Oh, the ol' rip out the microphone and run away move. What is it with "ex-gay" speakers and their love for that particular exit strategy? Never in the history of video cameras has that move led any person (or the movement with which they're attached) look good.

Guess there are no magnets in the cameras to keep these kids safely in their places.

Your thoughts

Those magnets are both female, no matter which way you turn them. Sometimes they're attracted to one another, sometimes not. Huh, just like people.

I wonder does Mr. Cohen understand F=MA? The mass of my fist times the acceleration of said fist equals the force applied to his face.

Do they realize how mentally deficient they sound when they spout that garbage?

Didn't he learn in Chemistry 102 that like substances mix with like?
