Anne Heche discredits 'ex-gays,' mother; proffers no apology for Volcano

by Jeremy Hooper

  It seems that Anne Heche is publicly denouncing her mother's participation with the "Love Won Out" misguided dog and bigoted pony shows, which are currently touring the country with their false compassionate "ex-gay" messages. Through a post on her official website (which came to our attention via an item in today's NY Daily News "Rush & Molloy" column), Heche says:

"Ellen and I had a three and a half year relationship that ended sadly, not because we were both women, but because we both wanted different things for our lives.

This NONSENSE about my mother praying for me is really making me angry. My mother never approved of my relationship with Ellen. Her hatred for our relationship is one of the many things that ultimately led to my breaking off all communication with her. (My mother, that is, not Ellen.)

The "Ex-gay" events that are going on right now make me sick. The fact that my mother is using my name to promote this movement makes me even sicker. I could not disagree more adamanty with what she and her group of unloving, unaccepting, Bible preaching hate mongers are doing. I do not believe that homosexuality is something that should be brainwashed out of someone. I do not believe that homosexuality should be anything but celebrated if that is the thing that makes an individual feel good about their life. I believe, as I have always said, that people should love who they want to love."

Well Wag the Dog and call me Donnie Brasco - she really is our friend! We weren't sure, but now it seems clear. Welcome back into the circle, Celestia!
