Okay, look: Any abuse perpetuated on Mr. Hartline or any self-identified "ex-gay" is not funny. Actually, scratch that: Violence in general isn't funny, be it merely scrape-inducing or be it life-robbing.

But the thing is: James Hartline has blown so much intellectual capital on LGBT rights issues that no activist worth his or her salt can, in good faith, trust his stories. And quite honestly, that extends to most on the "ex-gay" side of thing. Their movement is so thoroughly built on lies, so extremely shrouded in taking credible truths and muddying them, so filled with folks whose motivations and agendas go beyond personal well-being, that they, if bunched together asa generalized collective of "change"-seekers, have weakened their own stated goal of changing hearts and minds.

In this modern "Boy Who Cried Wolf" tale, the 'ex-gay" community has put a gagillion too many false fangs on those of us who are (a) 100% fine with anyone living however he or she may choose, yet (b) dedicated to trafficking in a realm where factuality, peace, and he world's fully spectrum of normalcy must be respected/accepted/protected. James Hartline more than others.


We wish you peace, health, and happiness in the New Year, Mr. Hartline.
