It’s somewhat odd that today on FNIF, Alan Chambers is whining about discrimination by a private corporation, Magellan Health Services, saying quote, “people are trying to tell others what to do,” and “everyone should have the right to self-determination.” This obviously reeks of hypocrisy: Exodus and FOTF are consistently telling happy and healthy gay Americans exactly what they should do and of course promoting discrimination against them, such as recently with Procter & Gamble.
It is odd they’re crying against discrimination, when they’re so fast to defend the right of private companies to discriminate.
Odd, too, they’re complaining about self-determination when they try to tell self-determined gay Americans how (not) to live their lives.
