Remember when the anti-gay bigots announced last year that October was “Ex-gay Awareness Month” and held a rally attended by fewer than ten people? Well get ready for “Ex-Gay” Awareness Month 2: Electric Boogaloo in October. And they’re holding a summit, but they’ll only tell you where it’s going to be held after you register, presumably so no one can show up to see only a handful of people there.
Boy, that looks exciting. Alan Keyes will give his usual shouty, weepy speech. Maybe he’ll tell the inspiring tale of how he disowned his own daughter for being a lesbian. That’s sure to get a standing ovation. Peter Sprigg can reiterate his demand that we start deporting gay people. It’ll be a rousing good time for all 9 people show show up.
