The following PFOX news release “PFOX Observes ‘Day of Silence’ – Urges Students, Teachers to Distribute Ex-Gay Flyers” is reprinted in its entirety: Washington D.C. – Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays (PFOX) is urging students, parents, and educators to distribute ex-gay flyers on April 11 to their schools with Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) or other gay-themed student clubs.

The following excerpts are from the article “California accused of discriminating against Christians” on the World Net Daily website: “When California lawmakers passed a law preventing licensed therapists from discussing with their clients how to eliminate unwanted same-sex attractions, their intent was to discriminate against the Judeo-Christian belief that homosexuality is sinful, charges a new brief filed with the U.S. Supreme Court.”

“The document was submitted by Freedom X, a nonprofit public interest law firm, as well as Parents and Friends of ExGays and Gays, a leading advocacy organization for the ex-‘gay’ community. The brief is in support of a request that the Supreme Court review and overturn a decision by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that endorsed the censorship of specific words and ideas in therapy sessions in the state.” (more…)

Joe Dallas on the death of Fred Phelps

March 21, 2014

The following excerpts are from the blog “Fred Phelps: The Symptom of our Sickness” on Joe Dallas’s website: …”Fred Phelps, founder and head buffoon of the Westboro Baptist God-Hates-Fags cult, has exited, and tears are few. His notoriety was achieved through a putrid combination of street theater and sadism, as he and his small following of family members picketed the funerals of AIDs patients and American soldiers, hoisting signs that celebrated the deaths being mourned as good, even delightful. No one was spared his bile, neither the parents of openly gay Matthew Shepherd, whose murder Phelps made an industry out of, nor the families of innocent children gunned down by a madman in an Amish school. The guy was, in true satanic form, an equal opportunity tormentor.”

“Two days ago he went to meet his Maker whom he never represented and, quite possibly, never knew. I cannot say rest in peace. I’ll only say God’s will be done.” (more…)

Andrew Comiskey: “Ethnicity is not sexuality!”

March 21, 2014 By: Tom Coy Category: Ex-gay News, Gay Politics

February 18, 2014

The following excerpts are from the blog “Obama-snare” on Andrew Comiskey’s website: “A nation whose head cannot distinguish between ethnicity and sexual identity is in big trouble. Race is immutable and inspired by God; sexual identity variations (LGBTSQ, etc.) are man-made, elastic constructs designed to either work out inner conflicts or to expand one’s sexual consumerism. To equate skin color and sexual identity is superficial, weak reasoning that proves unjust to oppressed ethnicities and broken people searching for real love and identity.”

“Yet racial justice is precisely the parallel invoked by the Obama Administration last week when it arbitrarily chose to expand ‘gay marriage’ benefits to all gay couples in the USA in opposition to the 34 states which define marriage as male/female.” … (more…)

Before the conference began, Andreina del Villar, our IHF Mexico Acting Director, and I went outside to greet the protestors with donuts! We wanted to show them our love and support. They asked many questions, doubting our sincerity. Looking into their eyes, I could see so much unhappiness and pain. We simply said how much we loved them…although most of them were unable to receive it…but, they did enjoy our donuts:))” (more…)

January 27, 2014

The following excerpts are from the article “Significant Victory …” on the Core Issues Trust website: … “In April, just before the 2012 London Mayoral Elections, the Christian charity, Core Issues Trust, was to run its Bus Advertisement Campaign. It, therefore, came at a time when the Conservative Party was courting the LGBT vote in an attempt to ditch what it called the ‘toxic’ history of the Party and seek new supporters. The Government was also concluding the consultation over its controversial policy on same sex marriage.”

“The Bus Advertisement Campaign by homosexual campaign group, Stonewall, stated ‘Some People Are Gay. Get Over It!’. In response, Core Issues Trust, led by Dr Mike Davidson, agreed with the Advertising authorities to run a Bus Campaign saying ‘Not Gay! Ex-Gay, Post-Gay and Proud. Get over it!’.” (more…)

January 27, 2014

The following excerpt is from the blog “Fractured in the Fight” on Andrew Comiskey’s website: … “As we arrived at the church for the day-long conference, we had to cross a barrier formed by 80 protesters, beautiful and broken self-identified gays and lesbians. I thought: ‘How can we as the people of God offer wholeness to the gender broken when we are so divided towards our fellow Christians?’”

“After our day of joyful testimony and truth, an anti-Catholic congregant texted our host: ‘Tell the Catholic that he brought living water to me today.’ Let it be so, O God. Unite us, one divide at a time. (more…)
