Because it's easier to talk about us behind our (and credible science's) backs

The PFOX (Parents and Friends of 'Ex-gays') organization is planning its upcoming weekend retreat, though you shouldn't consider going if you are actually an LGBT person who might be able to shed some insight. Why? Because PFOX is pointedly limiting its event to "parents who unconditionally love their children" (a.k.a the ones most receptive to the organization's duping):

Friday and Saturday, March 16-17, 2012 for a PFOX family and friends weekend.

The weekend will focus on uniting families through unconditional love.

Joe Dallas will be our opening speaker. Joe's ministry in sexual addiction recovery and homosexuality is nationally recognized. He is the author of The Game Plan and The Men’s 30-Day Strategy for Attaining Sexual Integrity, and Program Director of Genesis Counseling in Tustin, Calif., a counseling ministry for men dealing with sexual addiction, homosexuality and other sexual/relational problems. He is a pastoral counselor, a popular conference speaker and author of five books on human sexuality from the Christian perspective.

This is a two-day experience for parents and friends of gay, lesbian and transgendered children. This is NOT a parent-child retreat, but an experience for parents who unconditionally love their children.

PFOX will provide educational resources, testimonies from former homosexuals and transgenders. You’ll have the opportunity to meet and form friendships with families who understand and share your feelings.

Friday's meetings are from 7-9:30 PM.

Saturday's meetings are from 8:30 AM to 8 PM.Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included.

The cost to attend the Retreat will be $100 per person or $160 for parents if registering by January 31, 2011. After that, prices go up to $125 per person or $175 for 2 family members.

"Oh, you say you're happy, adjusted, and comfortable with who you are, son? Well dad and I spent $160 to hear an agenda-driven special interest group tell us why you're not. So no, sorry: Find a way to procreate or find a way to vacate!"

It's kind of like a parent/teacher conference. Except one where, you know, the instructors actually applaud failure in science, consider counting the number of "x" chromosomes in a relationship to be the only needed math project, and encourage the decontextualizing of certain vocabulary words for the sake of political convenience.
