Some time ago, I learned about PFOX (Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays). This organization provides a voice for those who have left the homosexual lifestyle, for their families, and informs the public about sexual orientation and ex-gays.
One of the topics PFOX discusses is the gay gene, a.k.a. people being born gay. Contrary to popular belief, people are not born gay, because there is not scientific evidence to confirm it. Being gay is a choice. Even the American Psychiatric Association (which ironically dropped homosexuality from its list of mental disorders in 1973 after being pressured by gay activists) admitted that there was no scientific basis for people possessing a gay gene.
In fact, whether or not someone is gay is the result of influences from his or her upbringing, environment, and social influences. In addition, therapy is available to those who no longer want to be gay, as well as those who think they are gay. The same scenario applies to all transgenders. Thus, the gay gene is nothing more than junk science, just like global warming or evolution (perhaps Ben Stein, who did a documentary on intelligent design titled Ben Stein’s Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed should do a documentary on the myth of the gay gene).
But the gay activists will not listen to the truth about there being no gay gene, because they don’t want the public to find out about it. They are convinced the debate has been settled. They are even advocating a ban on homosexual therapy, because 1) it poses a threat to their gay gene argument (not to mention the lifestyle), 2) they view it as a form of oppression, and 3) they do not want their fellow gays defecting from their camp (i.e. they are gay for life).
This brings us to the next topic: discrimination against ex-gays. Although some heterosexuals have shunned ex-gays when learning of their past lifestyles, the attacks against ex-gays by gays is even worse. The gay activists will not hesitate to silence ex-gays in order to trick the public into thinking that ex-gays don’t exist. Such tactics include intimidation (including protests at ex-gay meetings and events), pressuring the host of various events to deny ex-gays equal access (e.g. diversity day), and character attacks. In addition, those involved with gay rights organizations are told to reject ex-gays. By carrying out these tactics, the gay activists become oppressors (while claiming to be oppressed).
Of course, this is all part of the homosexual agenda. The goal of gay activists is not equal rights, but power. Just like the Islamists, the gay activists are trying to take over. And contrary to popular belief, they do not play nice. They have taken over San Francisco, and aim to take over the rest of America. Such ambition is displayed through the methods of Human Rights Campaign activist “Wacky” Wayne Besen, as well as Michael Swift’s “Gay Manifesto” (Google it and you will learn just how disturbed and evil some of these people are).
But not all is lost. Because PFOX (and groups like it) help spread the truth, thus providing hope for everyone.
