In a June 17 Citizenlink article, Focus on the Family speaks out in support of Italian pop singer’s ex-gay song “Luca Used to be Gay.”  The autobiographical song advocates that gays can become straight, which XGW predicted would bring it to the attention of ex-gay advocates elsewhere.

What is more telling, however, is Citizenlink’s statement that the song promotes “the truth that people can change their sexual orientation.”  While it comes as little surprise to outside observers that Focus on the Family believes that homosexuals can (and should) become heterosexual, it does belie the assertion repeatedly made by spokespersons for FotF’s Love Won Out roadshow that they’re not actually out to change anyone’s orientation.

They are, but they aren’t.  It all depends on who they think is listening.
