What is it about AcelibaateGayChri stian. What is the agenda? What do you think it is? What is it about? I think after you pulled your thumb out, you started sucking on it. You don't know anything.

OMG! I watched the attached movie.

It shows how ex-gay ministries used the excuse of religion to lock gay children up in concentration camps and murder their souls and spirits in cold blood using torture and brainwashing; WORSE than the 911 killers because they leave the children alive with no reason to live.

In this case, one of the kids sent out a cry for help on facebook, and the world came to his rescue.

The police and the television cameras followed the crowds to the concentration camp and when the government investigation was launched, the criminals closed the concentration camp down and disappeared.

Apparently they have run out of money so they are going to reorganize in Boston Tomorrow April 28.

Typical. More members of the pink gestapo rallying against freedom of thought.
Conservative's in America need to pull their thumbs out and wake up to what the true homo agenda is about.
Yes. How dare people express their own thoughts. Obviously that is exactly the same as telling others they can't have their thoughts.

aCelibateGayChristian: We also hope that YOU find peace with who you are. If that is a gay man--about which many of us share serious doubts--then we hope you learn to accept yourself as such and live a happy fulfilling life as a gay man. If you are destined to remain celibate, so be it. You are certainly not alone. If you are truly heterosexual, then we wish you much happiness as a heterosexual man.

But as you are, you are clearly unhappy and insecure. You claim to be gay and celibate--fine. But why do yo feel the need to denigrate gays who are well-adjusted with their natural sexuality?

I am so happy that I don't live with your demons. And I truly hope you overcome them.

I simply referred to the gays rallying against freedom of thought. How is that denigrating anyone?

The gays are rallying FOR freedom of thought -- 16-year old Zack's freedom to think for himself, instead of being imprisoned by Christians and having their thoughts FORCED on him.

You seem to be the one who has a problem with the friends of the GLBT community expressing their opinion. Why are you so fearful of our expression of compassion if your own ideas are so compelling? Could it be that the ideas of Truth Won Out can't stand up to the light of day? Do they melt like the wicked witch of the west?

And the x-tians talk about the gay community brainwashing children?! Yet another reason to classify organized religion as child abuse.

I'm beginning to think that this conference might be a place to meet some hot guys! Imagine how crowded all the gay bars will be after the meetings! Oh, and I'm not talking about the protesters.

I know ex-gays and yes they do exist. They have chosen to not engage in same sex. Some have overcome their feelings of attraction for men and others have decided to be celebate.

Amazing the TOLERANCE from the so called tolerant group....what hypocrites.

Exactly. Another word for "overcome" is oppress. They've oppressed their sexuality. Maybe some people are so ashamed of their sexuality that they're better off celibate or married to someone who doesn't fulfill their natural desires. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't keep delivering the message that their desires are not sick; they don't need to be cured; and they can live full and happy lives by being what they were born to be.

What's so intolerant in that message?

They were never gay to begin with. They were bisexual. Only a bisexual can choose between a male or a female.

Bisexuals also tend to be homophobic and seek assistance to get rid of their fears.

Mislabeling bisexual therapy patients as ex-gay is outright fraud.

The ignorance regarding ex-gays here is really unbelievable. Talk to them. Afterall, they were once gay and know better than anyone of what they know.

There is no such thing as ex-gay. There are bi-sexuals and then there are liars.

It is not scientifically possible for a human to change sexual orientation.

Some people think they can fly so I place that group with the so called ex-gays. Start flapping your arms and see how long it takes you to be at 20 thousand feet.

There are medications out there for psychotics and anyone thinking he/she is ex hetero or ex gay is NUTS.

Are you an ex gay? or are you gay. If not either who is it you know that is an ex gay and how well do you know them?

Perhaps true.. but i do believe one can convinve themselves.. that the only way they can be happy is to "fit the norm" even if it goes against thier true selves.

The only intoerance is your own, telling people what they can and cannot be based on their own experience.

How different is that than being told homosexuality is a choice?

How do you know what they were in the first place Robin?

A closed mind is a terrible thing to see.
