This post brought to you by Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays (PFOX). Families Ask Obama Administration to Take Down Government Links to Anti-Ex-Gay Websites — Government gives $100,000 to gay group for schoolchildren to become “youth activists” Those statements are basically the same complaint; That LGBTQ anti-bullying/suicide prevention resources are attacks on the so called ex-gay/formerly-homosexual community — Seriously. That […]
By distancing itself from reparative therapy and affirming the (fairly common) evangelical doctrine of “once saved, always saved,” the still-very-definitely conservative Exodus International has moved just a little bit to the left. Naturally, this leaves true Christians, such as those at PFOX, wondering whether Exodus is now in league with the kingdom of the cults:
Truth Wins Out disputed Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays (PFOX) dishonest and immature portrayal today of a lawsuit filed against its President Greg Quinlan. The lawsuit was dismissed by the United States District Court in Richmond because Besen was deemed a “public figure,” which raises the bar on proving malice in defamation lawsuits. However, the […]
LGBT activist organization Truth Wins Out has launched a lawsuit against PFOX, the anti-gay lobbying group whose president accused TWO’s Wayne Besen of calling for his death.

Current PFOX president Greg Quinlan appeared for an interview recently on a local D.C. station. While the interviewer, Mark Segraves (WDCW-TV), was better prepared than most, it doesn’t seem he understood the depth of misinformation Quinlan is willing to put forth.

PFOX has a long history of repeatedly making false statements, which makes it even more imperative that Mayor Fenty publicly revoke this certificate. As readers digest these recent PFOX related issues, Dave Rattigan’s excellent post on the ideology behind […]
Virulently anti-gay organization Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays (PFOX) were jubilant earlier this week as they announced that Executive Director Regina Griggs had received a ‘certificate of appreciation’ from the District of Columbia: The certificate, signed by D.C. mayor Adrian Fenty, recognizes Griggs for her “dedication, commitment, and outstanding contributions as Executive Director of Parents […]
It seems that Exodus VP Randy Thomas is no fan of the recent resolution brought to a vote at Disney by Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays (PFOX). The language PFOX uses is confusing. It appears they are doing a “find and replace” word processing function on their organizational messaging. They are copying gay activist talking […]
