Following are excerpts from the Christian Broadcasting Network article “Ex Gays Show Pride, Seek Equal Protection under Law” by Heather Sells (the online link also contains an interview with ex-gay Christopher Doyle): … “At a press conference outside the U.S. Supreme Court Wednesday, ex-gays with the group Voice of the Voiceless told of coming out of the gay world and often being harassed. They said they deserve legal protection against discrimination. ‘I have been free of the obsession, the compulsion of same-sex attraction for over 40 years,’ Doug McIntyre, with Homosexuals Anonymous, said.”

… “They also told of rejection and hate. ‘I have suffered more discrimination and intolerance as an ex-gay than I did when I was in the lifestyle,’ Rev. Grace Harley, with Jesus is the Answer Ministry, said. ‘Many ex-gays are afraid to come out of the closet because of the harassment that we receive.’”

“Christopher Doyle, president and co-founder of Voice of the Voiceless, told CBN News it’s time the world listened to ex-gays. ‘We’re just simply saying that we want a seat at the table,” Doyle said. “We want our voices to be heard.’”

“Doyle is asking for legal protection from discrimination due to sexual orientation and says states should stop efforts to ban therapy for those seeking change. ‘They’re literally trying to take away the choice to come out of homosexuality and pursue heterosexuality,’ he said. ‘So we’re saying we have the desire to be protected and not have our rights infringed upon by these activists who only want one viewpoint to be heard on this issue.’” …
