Exodus International, the Christian group that purports to “cure your homosexuality,” has its annual conference this summer.
Here’s the commercial for it:
They don’t actually define what “change” is. They don’t mention what methods they use to “cure” you. Let’s face it: the girl in the video is headed for a lot more heartache if she goes through their program.
The blog Good As You has this to say:
If only sexual truth and biological reality were pieces of musical theatre wherein dramaturgs and directors could mold the script in any way they see fit, then their play-acting might be valid. But considering that for the vast majority of us, the only script we’ve ever needed to get in touch with our characters is the one that’s been dictated to us by our mind since birth, we personally think that Exodus should focus less on the smoke and mirrors that come with slick productions and pseudo religo-psycho-babble, and more on what’s TRULY going on in in their participants’ heads.
I’m also curious as to whose attendance is higher at the conference: Those who want to “fix” their gayness, or those who want others to “fix” their gayness.
