I’ve mentioned Ted Cox before — he’s the guy who went undercover at a Gay Conversion Camp:
An atheist, Ted Cox, spent the past two years going undercover as a gay man undergoing gay-to-straight therapy programs run by Christian groups (as if there were any other kind).
What he found was precisely what you would think: These programs do nothing to “convert” you from gay to straight. They just try to make you suppress your (gay) sexual urges. They make up their own “facts” — you’re not born with it, it’s the result of a traumatic childhood, Jesus can save you from The Gay, etc.
Check it out. The whole thing is very well-written and exposes the truth about how these places work.
It’s terrible that some gay men feel they have to go through this sort of thing in order to suppress their feelings and to lie to themselves about their true identities.
