'Ex-gay' supportive talking points: Now with even more rape, murder!

by Jeremy Hooper

201402061315After seeing Liberty Counsel's Matt Barber and Family Research Council's Peter Sprigg promoting it on Twitter, I finally clicked on Janet Tassel's American Thinker piece about "ex-gay" therapy and its repudiation. These are the kinds of comparisons that social conservatives apparently think are worth promoting:

The bullies at the Southern Poverty Law Center are merely reflecting the standard liberal trope: Murderers, rapists, and other criminals are formed by society and can be helped by psychiatric treatment, but gay men and women are born as homosexuals and are therefore expected to live their lives as homosexuals, whether they like it or not.
FULL: Hope and Change? Not For Gays [American Thinker]

Because apparently in American "thinker" world, this is a completely okay thing to say. If people who kill, sexually abuse, and engage in other chosen acts of criminal malevolence can possibly benefit from medical guidance, then why not gays? And if progressives note the obvious difference between murder and a certain sexual orientation, they are supposedly engaging in some sort of intellectual dishonesty.

It's shocking how easily these ideas flow from their fingers.
