Ex-gay and antigay movement leaders see profit in the battle against marriage and civil unions for gay couples.
As Stephen Bennett sees the situation, one way to make money from cultural anger, fear, and hate is to host and sell CDs with the help of reactionary media outlets such as WorldNetDaily.
For a love offering of just $20, you can listen to the ex-gay activists that I’ve italicized below. The sales pitch for this CD calls the following culture warriors “America’s most respected and trusted leaders” :
