Just this week, Sandy Rios of the American Family Association (as in, Americans who work feverishly to prevent families from forming) was bragging about the coming ex-gay rally in Washington DC. Oh, it was to be an event for the ages!
Rios confidently predicted that “thousands of ex-gays are descending” on Washington for a press conference planned for today at the Supreme Court. She lamented that when she led Concerned Women for America the media refused to hear “our ex-gay friends” because it “undermined the whole effort of the homosexual lobby.”
Thousands! From among the millions of church-goers in this country, thousands of ex-gays would descend upon Washington, blocking out the sun with their newfound straightness.
Christopher Doyle (heavy on the “Christ”), the man (let there be no doubt) behind ex-gay pride month and the organizer of the rally reiterated the number, and lamented how ex-gays are in the closet for fear:
Doyle told Rios that “tens of thousands” of ex-gays exist but are “in the closet because of fear, shame and threats from gay activists.”
Well, the appointed day of the rally came. Behold: thousands of ex-gays:
If that looks like less than ten people, not a thousand, there’s a perfectly reasonable explanation: because it’s less than ten people.
Kind of gives you a whole new mental image when these same people tell you that “Jesus really performed miracles!”
