After this prayer, NASCAR could do one of two things: Make this guy chaplain or enact a wall of separation between church and race. Boogety, boogety , boogety. Read more

New York can keep their gay marriage according to Texas Governor Rick Perry. “Our friends in New York six weeks ago passed a statute that said marriage can be between two people of the same sex. And you know what? That’s New York, and that’s their business, and that’s fine with me. That is their call. If you believe in the 10th Amendment, stay out of their business,” Perry said at an event held by the Aspen Institute in Aspen,… Read more

I will be on CNN Newsroom Sunday at 8:30am (ET) 7/24 to talk about evangelicals and reparative therapy. I believe the focus is going to be on the recent issues relating to Marcus Bachmann’s clinic, Exodus, and Mark Yarhouse’s research demonstrating no orientation change on average in mixed orientation marriages. Read more

In a surprising move, the government of Uganda appointed an organization aligned with GLB interests there to an important public health committee. In a surprising, unprecedented action, the Uganda government has appointed LGBTI lobby group, Uhspa Uganda, to a committee to mainstream homosexual’s rights in Uganda’s Public Health Policies. The Uganda Health and Science Press Association is a registered LGBTI network of groups. The Health, Human Rights and Gender Committee is overseen by the Ministry of Health in Kampala. It… Read more

This change has been in the works for a long time but the news, coming during a renewed interest in reparative therapy, will keep the discussion going. Bottom line is that various stakeholders are not comfortable with the change paradigm and are moving to the congruence paradigm. Exodus, at times, has articulated a congruence message but has not followed through at the level of the resources offered. Some of their ministries are quite focused on congruence and others, including some major ones,… Read more

According to this report, a group of young LGB activists raided the Bachmann clinic and threw glitter all over the waiting room. How pranky. While there were no clients in the waiting room, there could have been. I hope real GLB groups condemn this kind of faux activism. One way to halt a self-fulfilling prophecy is not to fulfill it. Now that I have seen the video (now posted at the link above), I am more sure that this is the… Read more

Rev. Al Mohler, who lately has been calling evangelicals to speak honestly about homosexuality, seemed to defend religiously based orientation change yesterday in a column on his website. Much of what he writes about sin and redemption most evangelicals would agree with, but then he says this about Christians and same-sex desire. Christians with same-sex sexual desires must know that these desires are sinful. Thus, faithful Christians who struggle with these desires must know that God both desires and commands that… Read more

Yesterday, I reported on the worsening situation in Ghana for human rights for GLB people. Today, a government minister ordered the arrest of all gay people in his region. The Western Region Minister Paul Evans Aidoo has ordered the immediate arrest of all homosexuals in the region. He has tasked the Bureau of National Investigations and all security agencies to smoke out persons suspected to be engaging in same sex. He also enlisted the services of landlords and tenants to… Read more
