Skip to comments.Homosexual Activists Want to Censor ex-'Gay' Message
Posted on 11/16/2006 3:25:20 PM PST by libertylovinactivist
An informational flyer distributed by an ex-"gay" group at a Maryland high school has administrators, faculty, and students who support homosexuality seething. Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays (PFOX) recently passed out the flyer to 3,000 students at Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring.
The handout distributed by the ex-homosexual group states its belief "in unconditional love for family members with same-sex attractions" and its goal of seeking "to eliminate prejudice and discrimination against former homosexuals." PFOX executive director Regina Griggs says those who are raising angry objections to the flyer distribution are demonstrating intolerance.
Discrimination against ex-Gays is OK.
Intolerance of ex-gays is OK.
They also do not tolerate any references to Paul Cameron's study on the rate of pedophilia among homosexuals being 10X that of heterosexuals.
"in unconditional love for family members with same-sex attractions"
What does that mean?
indulgence? don't say anything hurtful? no confrontations?
acceptance? no fighting allowed?
What? if my kid is on drugs, i'm supposed to buy him a bong and tell him it's ok, smoke up, no matter what I love you.
Love seeks , IMO, the best for the other person and that means telling the other person you're doing what is harmful and you're going to stop it.
They are agry over the fact that these are ex-gays passing out these fliers preaching tollerence.
by claiming they are "ex- gays" means that Faggotdom is a mental condition of some sort that can be unlearned like any other bad habit (masterbating excesively for instance)
Could be that's what happened - my point was the article doesn't contain enough information to conclude anything - we don't have the flyer, we don't have the objection or the names of anyone who objected or why they objected.
I myself remember an ex-gay coming to my youth group and telling his testimony. The guy married and had two kids after finding Christ. Homosexuality is a choice.
It's just an excerpt. Follow the link.
Wneh you post an except inform the readers that there is more to the article.

I did. And I'm not saying its not a valid issue to discuss but just that this isn't the right article to do it from because there is not enough information.
The Left is all about shouting down people who disagree with them.
>>They also do not tolerate any references to Paul Cameron's study on the rate of pedophilia among homosexuals being 10X that of heterosexuals.<<
I wonder what he and the ex-gay folks think about each other - their positions would really seem to be at odds.
And I'm not saying its not a valid issue to discuss but just that this isn't the right article to do it from because there is not enough information.
Is it necessary to have a comprehensive article in order to discuss an issue? The issue being tolerance and intolerance.
I bet that many of those ex-gays became gays by pedophiles molesting them and became ex-gays by getting treatment.

Heck no. We can talk philosphy or principle.
About pedophilia: What is true is that males are the predominant offenders, and it is true that their targets are often male. But the rub is that most of these offenders are not sexually interested in adult males. Pedophiles who are sexually attracted to women are sometimes attracted to prepubescent boys because these children are feminine. Such pedophiles don't self-identify as "gay." Most gay men seek masculine men, a quality that prepubescent children don't possess.
Incrementalism. The Sex Positive Agenda is doing well using the Homosexual Agenda as a battering ram against society's mores and morals.
We ended the discussion on IF teens should be having sex and switched it to "when" by putting condoms in schools.
The Sex Positive Agenda wants the end all moral judgements on sexual pairings regardless of sex, age, relation, marital status, number, or species of partner(s).
They oppose abstinence, not because it doesn't work but because it is a "suppression" of sexual desires (same concept they have to resisting homosexual urges).
Kinsey and Reich saw sex as a child's birthright and the Sex Positive teachers want everyone sexually active at every age. There is no concept of "age appropriate" activity.
And our tax dollars fund this subversive agenda.
Gay activists have always based their arguments for the social acceptance and normalization of homosexuality on the premise that it is inborn and therefore cannot be changed.
This is why they cannot tolerate the message of ex-gays.
I agree with your point. The article is short on facts and long on someone's interpretation and opinion.
