If an exgay activist posts a profile on the youth-oriented Myspace web site, this is euphemistically called “evangelism.”
If a gay Christian posts a profile at the same site, it’s likely to be called “homosexual recruitment.”
But isn’t exgay activism sometimes a form of sexual recruitment into celibacy, unhappy marriage, or secretive sexual encounters?
And aren’t some gay people of faith, in fact, evangelists for a God that loves all of humanity?
Where can one draw appropriate distinctions between “evangelism” and “recruitment”? Is it ever fair to accuse anyone of recruitment?
