Brian Camenker of MassResistance is an incredibly virulent anti-gay bigot even by Christian right standards, so naturally Gordon Klingenschmitt brought him on his show to declare that Gay-Straight Alliance clubs in school specifically try to recruit Christian kids and turn them gay.
“I have seen over the years, a movement of, in general, where you have kids who are very vulnerable, maybe having troubles at home, maybe having their own issues and the gay clubs will say ‘the reason you’re not fitting in is because you’re really gay,'” Camenker said. “And they will take them under their wing and they will persuade them to come out because this is who you really are. And pretty soon these kids are getting involved in these really horrible behaviors, horrible things at the meetings. We’ve seen it up close and we’ve seen the anxiety that the parents go through when their kids are suddenly taken over by this.”
“Yes, they love getting kids from Christian backgrounds,” he continued. “That seems to be something that they particularly enjoy to do.”
Two obvious responses:
1. Evidence, please.
2. Even if this were happening, can’t it just be prayed away?
