Audio: What TOMS ultimately rejected: Likening gay couples to 'infected wounds'

by Jeremy Hooper

Th following 2009 video is still very much a part of Focus on the Family's website, under the heading "Homosexual Friendship Boundaries." Pay particular attention around the 10:20 mark, when professional "ex-gay" Melissa Fryrear says this of her past lesbian relationship:

"We were like two infected wounds that had been bandaged together with very dirty and soiled gauze. In the same way that a compassionate doctor would come and begin to gently unwrap that gauze and begin to gently pull those wounds apart, if you will, that was critical in my life to see the heavenly father's mercy as he began to gently pull our lives apart from one another, the home we were living in, and our entire support network of the gay and lesbian community where we were living"

This is the kind of thing that led TOMS shoes to determine that their company had "chosen poorly" in partnering with Focus on the Family. This is the kind of thing that makes Focus on the Family's victim meme as laughable as it is offensive.
