Now see there!
.
These crazies even lie about their group; calling themselves 'ex-gays'; when in reality they are not 'ex-gays' at all
.
They are 'whimpering homophobes'

Both of you, well said. There is a small change I would make in 1 line however. Instead of "They are 'whimpering homophobes'", IMHO it should read: They are self hating 'whimpering homophobes'.

That's not what Alan Chambers, head of the biggest "ex-gay" group has concluded. He's publicly acknowledged that all the so-called "ex-gay" crap can do is encourage people who have same-sex feelings to repress. No one is actually changed to heterosexual.

Chambers has even acknowledged that "ex-gay" therapy does more harm than good.

P.S. When you trot out the "gay lifestyle" buzzword you betray your utter ignorance. Gay people's lifestyles are no different than the lifestyles of heterosexuals. We work, pay taxes, raise our kids, belong to charitable groups, study, socialize, etc. just like everyone else.

Maybe they can have a parade of "Little Liars" and you can be the grand marshal of liars, little liar.

Why not try the name "CLEAVON"? That has a nice ring to it, for a little liar.

Come on, SERIOUSLY? I thought this was something from "The Onion". And the guy in charge, Christopher Doyle, HE is the spokesman for EX gays? Uh, I so do NOT think it quite worked on him. He looks gayer than Perez Hilton.

Our parades take a back seat to NOBODY!

I insist we add the word sociopath. If you look up what it means you will see that it describes perfectly all our resident pew warming homophobic liars.

When it comes from republicans it is easy to believe it is something from "The Onion."

So they're having a parade to celebrate being pathological liars? How very christian of them. I'm guessing they only recognize nine commandments as being valid or relevant.

I know! Since they'll be wearing typical "Ex-Gay" clothing, I wonder how we'll know which two people on the Mall are the parade? Has anyone told them they're gonna need a permit? Do you think the music blaring from their iPhone is going to attract much attention?

Of course. It is beyond pathetic and I think this is pretty much the last we will be hearing of it.

I'm sorry, but most of these guys come off as gayer than Hitler in Springtime For Hitler!

WAIT...do you think that's where Scott Lively got the idea that Hitler was gay?

You little f*cking idiot!! Why would they CHOOSE to be hated by retards like yourself? Why would they CHOOSE to be made fun of and bullied? WHY WOULD THEY CHOOSE TO BE GAY?! Millions of gay people have killed them selves and for what? For attention? No! Because they couldn't handle being put down and badgered and harassed by people who have NO IDEA what they are talking about. Christians all over the world are being raised wrong and taught wrong at their churches. They are taught first that god loves everyone. Then they are also taught to hate gay people and black people and everyone who is not EXACTLY LIKE THEM. Now listen close cause I am only gonna tell u this once. God loves everyone no matter if they are black, white, Mexican, or Asian NO MATTER IF THEY ARE GAY, STRAIGHT, OR BISEXUAL. If he made everyone and specifically picked out how you are going to be and feel and look, which he did, then what do you think gives you the right to hate so deeply with your cold heart everyone who was not created exactly like you? I certainly did not post this comment on here expecting it to change the way you feel about the situation because you can't change the way people like you thing or act. Just know that you can't hide behind that screen forever. And when you go public about the hate that lies within you I am sure to god that no one will back you up because of how much of a fool you are making yourself look like. Good luck in life

You are such a shining beacon of Christian compassion. Who needs things like the Ten Commandments and the Bible when they have you to follow?

... and you wonder why us atheists get away with insulting you christians to your faces so much. If you didn't piss off so many people like this, more people would be more sympathetic to the fact that we're destroying your religion.
