I’ve been away on a retreat with my Quaker meeting up near the Berkshire Mountains. Lovely and no Internet for days.
But stuff has been happening. On Friday ABC’s 20/20, they featured married folks who had to face having a gay or lesbians spouse. I have yet to see the segment, I know it features the former wife of a gay mormon. In the segment they also revisit Love in Action and interview Wade Richards, who back in 2000 was an ex-gay poster child but has since come out as gay and started a pro-gay organization in Phoenix, AZ.
Tomorrow evening (Tuesday) CNN’s program Prime News will feature a panel of folks talking about the new “ex-gay study” published by Intervaristy Press and praised by folks at Focus on the Family. Ex-gay survivor and BeyondExGay.com cofounder Christine Bakke will appear on the panel. She has sat with the stories of hundreds of ex-gay survivors and put some of these together in the form of collages.
You can read a well-presented review of the study by Jim Burroway here.
And if you were interested in the video of the recent program on Fox’ Morning Show, here is part one which mostly features Alan Chambers:
And Part two with a little bit of me and the rest of the panel.
Hat tip to Good as You.
