Sorry Mos - this story ain't going away. And won't go away. Isn't gonna be swept under some rug someplace. It's coming back to bite you. Hard.

He volunteered.
And it probably helped.
Everybody that admits to being a homosexual pervert would benefit from a zap or two.
That's why we have Tazers now and we should get to use them.

Well, I was SAVED for a HORRIBLE morally-bankrupt lifestyle by electric aversion therapy when I was a kid. My dad caught me reading a book about the Kennedys (my stupid liberal communist school assigned it), and he snatched it out of my hands and RUSHED me to a hospital. They gave me electric aversion therapy and in just 7 months I was cured !

I accompanied my dad to the 1972 Republican National Convention cuz he was a delegate from the Virgin Islands (a VERY important position !), and I have voted in EVERY election since 1976, and cuz of my dad and that great hospital, I have NEVER voted for a Democrat !

:)

And at least we can ALL agree that Obamaniac® is Evil. PURE EVIL !

If that was meant as a joke, I, for one, am not laughing. Did you write the material for Charlie Sheen's live show that's now on tour, perchance??

No. It's true. Why would you think it's a joke ?

Looks like the treatment ruined your brain. You are stupid enough to believe Moron teachings.

Gay cure????? Whate next a cure for blue eyes and blond hair?? Or maybe we could cure being short or tall......Gay is a way people are born. If they want to change that they cant. I know a gay man who wishes and parys everyday that he could not be gay he crys and sobs at times hopeing god would take being gay from him....But being born a way I tell him is just the way it is.....
