Demanding Higher Body Count, Focus on the Family Takes Over Group That Promotes Bullying Against Gay And Lesbian Teens
Apparently Exodus International was not killing enough Gay and Lesbian teens to appease their christian overseers at Focus on the Family.
Focus on the Family announced Thursday it will take over sponsorship of an annual student-led event against homosexuality.
The event is called the Day of Dialogue, formerly known as the Day of Truth.
“We want to offer students the facts (about homosexuality) to engage a dialogue in schools,” Focus spokesman Gary Schneeberger said.
Focus today launched the website Dayofdialogue.com (links to hate groups removed), a resource for students interested in being part of the homosexual protest next April.
…On Oct. 6 Exodus International, an Orlando, Fla.-based ministry coalition that claims to help gay people become straight, announced it would no longer sponsor the Day of Truth because of the rash of gay bullying.
Exodus International is the christian ministry that actively worked with Ugandan Legislators to draft laws that execute Gay and Lesbian citizens in that country. Exodus International believes that Gays and Lesbians can be cured of their same sex attractions through prayer and conversion therapies. These barbaric therapies have been condemned by every accredited psychological and medical organization in the United States.
Some of their conversion therapies include forcing Lesbians to endure corrective rape. The logic is that once the Lesbian experiences “normal” sex they are cured of their same sex attractions. In many cases the Lesbian becomes pregnant due to the corrective rape often administered by members of her own family. Of course the Lesbian is forced to carry the fetus to term many times chained immobile in a bed so the they won’t hurt the baby.
Part of the conversion therapy used to repair Gays includes attaching electrodes to the patients penis, displaying homoerotic picture then shocking the penis when the patient becomes aroused. Many Gays suffered extensive burns on their penis as a result of this electro aversion therapy.
Both of these practices are used today in the United States by many discredited christian reparative therapists including those sponsored by Exodus International and Focus on the Family. These practices are quite common in countries such as Iran and Uganda that follow religious law and execute their Gay and Lesbian citizens. Both of these ministries push the adoption of christian based biblical law in the United States and actively promote the extermination of Gay and Lesbian Americans.
Focus on the Family and their founder Dr “Death” Dobson have promoted violence and discrimination against Gay and Lesbian Americans for over thirty years. Dr “Death” Dobson helped establish the fraudulent conversion therapy movement which helped his ministry make billions fighting against the “homosexual agenda”. Focus on the Family has a budget of roughly 130 million dollars annually dedicated to spreading hate against Gays and Lesbians and promoting discriminatory legislation. Focus on the Family is a major sponsor of the bigoted marriage amendments and is based in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
For the record sexual orientation cannot be changed. Homosexuality and heterosexuality are both normal, natural and unchangeable sexual orientations. The American Psychiatric Association, the American Psychological Association, the American Medical Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the National Academy of Science, the United States Supreme Court and 92% of Fortune 500 companies agree.
The Libertarian Party even supports full equality for homosexuals…including marriage equality and are currently lobbying congress for the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act and repeal of the military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy.
The only groups promoting the lie that sexual orientation can be changed are religious institutions justifying their discrimination against Gays and Lesbians around the world.
