They can't even make the date truthful?!

by Jeremy Hooper

We've noticed that attention to the so-called Day of Truth, the "ex-gay" promoting event that the anti-gay community is throwing today as an attempt to counter Friday's pro-gay Day Of Silence, has been very quiet this year. Yet despite that lack of press, we would still think that its organizers at Exodus International would know enough about the day to get its actual date (today, 4/20) right. It is, after all, their party.

But after seeing this 4/14 Exodus press release, we realize that maybe we're being too generous:

200904201302-1
Thousands of Students Gather for Day of Truth 4/14/09 [Exodus]

Yea, Exodus? You're telling the press that DOT was held last Tuesday? That's an interesting PR strategy.

Or then again, maybe it's a brilliant strategy. After all, the message that the organization is trying to send does tell gay kids that their first choice of a date is wrong and in need of "change." Maybe Exodus just wants one sort of alteration for which they can finally claim a 100% success rate!

Your thoughts

Interesting that they chose 4/20. You know what else is being celebrated today, right?
