The ex-gay ‘movement’ is getting desperate. The latest fundraiser from the International Healing Foundation pretty much proves that.
The IHF is an ex-gay therapy clinic run by Richard Cohen and Christopher Doyle.
For those who do not remember Cohen, he was the man who appeared on The Rachel Maddow Show where the openly lesbian news show host wiped the floor with him rather thoroughly. Dr Maddow pretty much managed to show the world just what a fraud Cohen is.
Doyle is the organizer of “Ex-Gay Pride Month”. For those who do not remember, he declared June “Ex-Gay Pride Month” and proceeded to cancel it when no one showed up. He claimed that no one showed up because they were too afraid of being beaten up by The Gays or someone. He organized an ex-gay lobby Congress day that drew a total of ten people. Recently, Doyle demanded that Exodus International apologize for ruining their fraud.
Well, now, Cohen and Doyle want money in order to end homosexuality. Their fundraising letter reads:
Announcing THE END OF HOMOSEXUALITY Want to Know How?
Want to be part of an exciting revolution? Want to end homosexuality and prevent bullying? Want to protect your children and grandchildren?
Everyday our kids are being inundated with false information about homosexuality-born that way and cannot change. This is both scientifically and scripturally untrue.
Of course, just because they claim that people aren’t born gay and can change is somehow scientifically true does not mean that it is actually true. Every major medical and psychological group out there has denounced ex-gay therapy as not only ineffective, but harmful.
Of course, ex-gay therapy is being defended by groups like the Family Research Council, Focus on the Family, and the National Organization for Marriage under the guises of religious liberty and freedom of speech.
The problem for them is that the judges aren’t buying it.
As for the rest of us, we seem to notice a complete and total lack of people who come out and say that they are ex-gay. There have been a lot of people who have come out and said that they are ex-ex-gay, though.
