Let Us Prey–On Gay Youth

Elizabeth McClung over at Screw Bronze! posted a well thought out blog posting outlining ways in which conservative anti-gay Christian groups like Focus on the Family, Exodus and PFOX (the uninspired acronym for Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays), who with their deep concern for America’s youth, have systematically developed strategies to recruit and train straight youth and adults. They these folks loose to undermine the health and wel-being of queer and questioning youth.

Elizabeth says it much better, with controlled emotion and stats.

    Goodness gracious…

    It’s bad enough that these ex-gay programs lure in adults–why do they have to attempt to (and sometimes succeed, I’m sure) corrupt queer youth??? I know that religion is a big part of people’s lives, but I don’t think that trying to live up to the expectations of your family or your pastor is worth giving up your sexuality, which is probably one of the biggest parts of a person.

    Isn’t this true, Peterson?

    Elliot, you speak the truth brother!
