'Culture War' Horse

by Jeremy Hooper

I'm not going to say I couldn't make this stuff up. I'm a creative sort. Give me some time and some literary freedom, and I can come up with just about anything.

I will say, however, that when it comes to the "ex-gay" movement, I don't have to make any of it up. The truth tends to be stranger than fiction:

Gay Star News reported today on research from Ned Flaherty that The Cowboy Church of Virginia, led by chief pastor Raymond Bell, believes homosexuality and other ‘addictions’ can be cured by Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. The church urged gay men to stroke horses to help them go from gay-to-straight.

We’ve have all heard of “pray away the gay” but how about the new technique of “nay [sic] away the gay”?
