Idiocy In Action

I know, I've been quiet on this section of the webpage for a couple of months, but my need to point out the 'stupid' on the web has finally returned. This installment looks at one of the worst named organizations in the world, "Love In Action".

"Love In Action" is a extremely right-wing Christian organization which was founded as a "ministry for those seeking freedom from Homosexuality..." Uh-huh... These guys are one of the many "Ex-Gay" ministries trying to "convert" people from the "evils" of homosexuality (Can I use more quote marks in a sentence? Yes. Yes I can... but I won't).

Now, I'm not gay, but I've never been able to understand people who demand that homosexuality is a choice. Now, I didn't "choose" to be attracted to women. Certain parts of my anatomy jump up and say "PRETTY LADY!" without any sort of conscious thought, folks. So, my assumption has always been (and I believe that I'm right) that homosexuals and bisexuals work the same way - they (like me) don't choose who they're attracted to... it just happens, regardless.

So, whenever I see "ex-gay" ministries I tend to scratch my head and say "What the *&!#?" I mean, really. What we see with these guys is typical self loathing behavior. A bunch of people who were raised being told that homosexuality was wrong, dealing with guilt complexes over something they can't control. It's all extremely stupid.

What actually frightens me a bit is their "Refuge" program for boys the ages 14-18. See, parents can spend either $1500 or $2500 to re-educate their homosexual teenage boy. It's thoroughly disturbing in my mind that any parent would place their child into such a program. It's revolting, really.

Sorry for not being that funny with this installment, occasionally my revulsion won't be entertaining...
