The Queer Action Coaltion, who keeps a steady hand on the pulse of Love in Action, wonders if recent signs point to genuine difficulties Memphis-based “ex-gay” program. They consider:
- As has been public knowledge LIA has had two live in facilities for their adult program The Source. Over the weekend we were informed that they have been forced to shut down one of their houses due to lack of enrollment. Again, this is unconfirmed, however, if true, would mean this has happened since the infamous summer of ’05 in which the “Christ Centered Ministry” faced numerous protests, and world-wide media attention for their dealings with youth.
- At a screening of “What Does Love In Action Look Like: The Preface” this past weekend we were informed by a source close to Dr. Stephen Rice, LIA Borad Member, that he has been heard murmuring that the devil is in the midst at Love In Action, refering to internal conflicts within the organization.
- Sources close to us who’ve happened to be driving by LIA have noticed fewer and fewer visitors at their facilities in Memphis.
The post goes on to quote a cry for help from a recent LIA newsletter and ends with a heartfelt plea for genuine change on the part of the “ex-gay” program.
