Focus on the Family recently claimed gay activists (NGLTF and PFLAG) have “pressured” the APA to re-examine it’s position on allowing members to practice gay conversion or reparative therapy. Given Focus’ recent history of distorting science and reality to fit their worldview, I contacted the NGLTF, PFLAG, and the APA myself and spoke respectivly with […]
Exodus sent out a press release encouraging people to “tune-in” to the Montel Williams show today to see guest Alan Chambers. This may confuse those who tune in because today’s show is actually about “Murder and Mystery with Sylvia Browne.” The show with Alan is being taped today with the broadcast probably a week or so later. […]
Earlier this month Alan was on Anderson Cooper 360 and made some very interesting statements about “change” in three weeks, gay Christians, and his own reasons for leaving homosexuality. Rest assured I’ve done my homework and found Alan and Exodus’ track record on these things don’t match up. Most dramatic is Melissa Fryrear’s claim she’s […]
Peterson Toscano and Lance Carroll — both survivors of Exodus’ flagship live-in boot camp, called Love In Action — were on Montel yesterday (02/20/07) each briefly discussing their experiences with the ex-gay movement.
There’s a two page article on ex-gay stuff in the current issue of People Magazine which hit newsstands today (Friday) and will arrive in mailboxes on Tuesday.

Every local news station in Phoenix came to the press conference today in opposition to Love Won Out. Video of the entire press conference will be posted soon. Update: And here’s the video. [googlevideo]-8344195389415698722[/googlevideo] And the Q&A. [googlevideo]-7302457955324224016[/googlevideo]
The satire website/newspaper The Onion takes on Haggard’s 3-week “cure.” Hat tip Scott H.
Hopefully I’ll have video up by this weekend at the latest. Here’s a link to the transcript. Alan Chambers appeared opposite Mark Shields of HRC. (Since when does HRC care or know anything about ex-gays? Shields admits he never even went through an ex-gay program.) Of note, Alan even seemed a bit surprised by Haggard’s […]
