Gay bloggers recently had a field day with ex-gay counsellor David Pickup’s “Increasing Manhood” video, one even speculating whether it was a spoof, in the vein of Donnie Davies. Unfortunately, Pickup (right) and his campaign to undermine the masculinity of gays — while supposedly helping them to discover their true manhood — are very much […]
The Canadian Television Network (CTV) has pulled a commercial after activists on Facebook claimed it was a violation of the channel’s own ethical policy. The 30-second advertisement, from Ontario-based Life Productions, contained the following message: You hear a lot about gay rights, gay marriage and the gay lifestyle being taught in our public schools for […]
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LCV1Y8WkZKI[/youtube] Exodus International has begun advertising for its 2008 conference. Its new video, posted above, is slickly produced, but as one might expect from a two-minute ad it contains little of substance. Like most of Exodus’ advertising, the video makes use of buzzwords like “change” and “freedom” without making any effort to define them. Alan […]
A few days ago, we reported on radio spots released by Exodus to promote their upcoming Freedom Conference in Irvine, California. These spots implied that one could expect “sudden, radical, compete change” in same-gender attraction.

Revolution – a sudden, radical, complete change – through […]
Before every Love Won Out conference, Focus on the Family leases billboard space in the area where it will be held. Before the last conference, one company refused to lease space to them citing the contents did not “meet their community’s standards for appropriateness or the copy is deemed offensive towards any business, group or […]
Prior to the recent Love Won Out conference in Phoenix, Focus on the Family tried to purchase space on billboards owned by media communications company Clear Channel. The billboards were to bear the organization’s familiar drumbeat “I questioned homosexuality: Change is Possible, Discover How.” Clear Channel declined. Speaking on behalf of Focus on the Family, […]
Repent America, as we’ve noted many, many times, is a Philadelphia-area group that illegally commandeers town council meetings, storms gay-friendly entertainment festivals, shouts down authorized speakers with megaphones in order to incite chaos, and gives a favorable nod to a federal death penalty for homosexuals. The exgay network Exodus thinks so highly of the group […]
According to USA Today, Exodus has dropped its complaint against blogger Justin Watt, after Watt removed the Exodus logo watermark from his parody of Exodus’ antigay billboard that was titled, “Gay? Unhappy?”: I think Exodus’ decision is sensible; even its claim of infringement against its logo was legally weak. Exodus had lodged a related complaint […]
