Video: Woman faces whole host of problems, links them to her 'former homosexuality'; CBN eats it up, serves it

by Jeremy Hooper

Right Wing Watch tips us to this clip from the Christian Broadcasting Network's 700 Club:

Just accepting the story at face value, Debra did, in fact, have all kinds of bad things to work through and, hopefully, beyond. Of course she did, because everyone who shares this kind of "ex-gay" story has a similar kind of story. From drugs to ethical vialtions to physical abuse, it is standard practice for a self-declared "former homosexual" to weave a tale of escape and present the sexuality as just another thing on the list of need-to-leaves.

It's just so obvious, both the false association and the agenda that gladly pushes it. If the rapidly dwindling "ex-gay" movement were a smart political movement, it would find a sober, two-parent-raised, upstanding bookworm who just so happened to be in a stable gay relationship for a decade or more, and then present that person as "proof" of change. Their always and obvious attempts to lump gay into one among a longer list of horribles is just one of the many reasons people find their movement so disingenuous (*the scientific community's round repudiation being another big reason).
