The American Family Association confirmed that Michael Johnston, the ex-gay HIV-positive head of Kerusso Ministries, had closed his ministry after numerous unsafe sexual encounters with other men.

Johnston was the star of an ex-gay TV ad, ex-gay video, and a raid upon a meeting between Jerry Falwell and the interfaith gay rights group Soulforce.

Comment and prayers — especially for the men he may have infected — forthcoming.

Peter LaBarbera of Concerned Women for America commented on the matter. LaBarbera declined to cast stones at Johnston — but he proceeded to cast stones at homosexuals.

Many thanks to XGW reader Richard R. for the early heads-up about this sad chain of events.
