To my knowledge, exgay activists Alan Chambers, Randy Thomas, and Stephen Bennett — all unabashed supporters of President Bush — have yet to comment on Bush’s vow to continue spying (without authorization or restraint) against American citizens. I also find no comment on Focus on the Family’s web site.
Who are those citizen “terrorists” whom Bush has stalked at taxpayer expense? Specifically, Quaker Christians, the ACLU and Greenpeace and any other U.S. citizen selected at the whim of senior Bush yes-men.
Are there exgay activists, anywhere, who have maintained their integrity and political independence by protesting the runaway cronyism and despotism of the Bush administration? If there are, please let me know.

The silence of Southern Baptist denominational leaders on revelations about this administration’s authorization of pre-emptive war, illegal wiretaps, torture, and lies is deafening. Then again, for the Fundamentalists and Dominionists that took over the SBC, their ends have always justified the means.
