What really needs to be cured is the rampant addiction to religion, which poisons everything and renders its victims dim-witted, as can be seen by the endless barrage of homophobic drivel posted here daily.

EVERY peer reviewed scientific study on the subject proves that homosexuals can and do change and that therapy is effective.

Poor Alan Chambers. He's been sucking at the teat of the anti-gay industry for two decades. Now that he's exposed their most-important lie, they will turn on him like a wounded grizzly.

Best thing for him to do is to come out again and figure out how to make an honest living.

Everyone in Pekin, Illionis, knows that DAVID MOORE is a true prize, thinking up a stupid trick like placing a highly explosive charge in his trombone and hurting people during a concert. What a TOOL he is. Ugly too.

Of the 366,478 times have posted the same lie, how many people do you think it has prompted to attempt changing their sexual orientation? Obviously, none.

It doesn't take a peer-reviewed scientific study to show this proves you a complete idiot.

Don't waste your time on him. He's a bored bigot, who keeps posting the same thing on all topix conversations. He'll never listen and when you prove him wrong, he ends up name calling.

On the same level as incest with your parent? What??? Also, its a sin because the bible calls for marriage? I guess he is forgetting when Christ said some men weren't made for marrying women and then refers to gay men as born eunuchs.

Gays can't be changed by treatment but stupidity, bigotry and hate can. Go get some mental health help, you need it.
