Did anyone else catch this story on CNN online today? Exodus International, a 'pray the gay away' scam outfit has decided they'll sit out this year's 'Day of Truth,' a counter protest to the annual 'Day of Silence,' a day that brings attention to the threats against LGBT students.
Exodus has decided that the 'Day of Truth' is too divisive and counter-productive. Sounds reasonable enough, until it really sinks in that this is a group that claims to be able to change homosexuality with the power of prayer.
This is a shameless group of charlatans, nothing more. They, along with the National Organization for Marriage, Focus on the Family and other right-wing religious fringe groups are, in my mind, largely responsible for fostering the idea that gay is bad. Kids aren't born bullies -- they learn that behavior from their parents. Parents who buy this bag of bullshit.
