…and while being closer to Jesus is a very nice thing, I'm sure, it has nothing to do with "curing" homosexuality

Yeah, right, especially if that Jesus is Jesus Sepulveda.

Are you able to view these clips? I can only see the commercials :-(

You may need to open the link in an Internet Explorer window, try that.

I can't load it because I'm on dial up at this moment. but....
I think I saw it a few nights ago and maybe they re-ran the segment.

Was it a with a guy shouting while he beat a stack of pillows with a tennis-racket while the reporter watched? If so, then yeah...that was weird.

Funny, the "Cure Gays" theme was a plot device in a Law & Order SVU rerun I caught last night.

I grumbled, "What Bullshit. You can no more 'cure' yourself of being gay than you can cure yourself of being black or chinese or having red hair and freckles." Mom replied with "That's for Damn Sure." Stoopid Bother (sic), the "Love the Sinner..." Suthun Bab'tis, was silent.

Go see X3, you'll die laughing at the irony.

Meh. Those that have a true and primal desire to change, be it concious(sp) or otherwise, are the only ones who have a chance at changing.

But, I would say, choosing to say that they can "cure" it, perhaps, might have been a poor choice of words for someone in their position. :/

You have a better chance of completely rearranging your DNA into that of Judy Tenuta's than changing your sexuality. The only 'cure' here is acceptance.

Um...this was on TV? Great. I wonder how people would take to CNN if they aired something like this on making black people white. Anyways, this "therapist" (since he is unlicensed) is a whack job. Beats a pillow and screams mom? And the only reason he has introduced that HUGGING part of therapy, is to fulfill his deep down feelings of needing male/male contact. This is denial at its peak.

The really funny thing is I saw X3 today - they were trying to 'cure' the mutants to make them 'normal' instead of accepting them as different and/or unique.

I saw it yesterday, and this was a great parallel. At least its at the point of just whack jobs thinking they can do it. AND not a vaccine. That would creep the shit out of me.

It is why I have liked all the X-Men movies. Anyone who has read any of the comics see the parallels of the mutant gene X and homosexuality.

I like to think I have special genes. Cuz mutants are the gifted ones...
