Audio: 'Ex-gay' is its own orientation; if you, like credible science, fail to honor that, then you're a hater

by Jeremy Hooper

A few days ago, we showed you how the National Organization For Marriage was inching ever closer to "ex-gay" advocacy, pushing the words of PFOX president Greg Quinlan. Now listen to this very same Greg Quinlan that NOM was pushing as he reaches out to the uber-incendiary Bryan Fischer, pushing the illusion that "ex-gay" is some sort of separate sexual orientation for the vain purpose of making the pro-science/ pro-accuracy/ pro-inclusivity/ pro-equality community look like the true "haters":

(h/t: Right Wing Watch)

Wait a second: "There are more 'ex-gays' than there are practicing homosexuals at any time" but we just don't tend to see or hear from them because they are in a "deeper closet" than before (8:26 in the vid)? Seriously, someone must know: Down what rabbit hole does this movement workshop its strategy?


*Reminder: This is the same Bryan Fischer who's said "Homosexuals in the military gave us...six million dead Jews". The guy who's said "homosexuals should be disqualified from public office," has called on Christian conservatives to breed gays and progressives out of existence, has called gay sex a "form of domestic terrorism," who's said only gays were savage enough for Hitler, has compared gays to heroin abusers, has directly compared laws against gay soldiers to those that apply to bank robbers, who once invoked a Biblical story about stabbing "sexually immoral" people with spears, saying we need this kind of action in modern day, who has spoken out against gays serving as public school teachers, has questioned why Medals of Honor are given to people who save lives (rather than take lives), who says that open service will "assign the United States to the scrap heap of history," who recently commiserated with Bradlee 'Executing homosexuals is moral' Dean, and who has blamed gay activists for dead gay kids, saying that: "If we want to see fewer students commit suicide, we want fewer homosexual students". The guy who said the only acceptable "culture war" truce would have gays giving up their demand for equality. The guy who painted Native Americans as innately cursed because they "cling to the darkness of indigenous superstition". The guy who encourages an "ex-gay" mother to ignore court orders that she finds Biblically unfair (Just like Rosa Parks, dont cha know?). The guy who conservative Christian Warren Throckmorton aptly noted is "to the right of Jerry Falwell" on some LGBT issues. The guy whose words pretty much single-handedly landed the American Family Association on the Southern Poverty Law Center's hate groups list.
