The Ex-Gay Movement

Posted by Dan Savage on Tue, Dec 8, 2009 at 12:42 PM

Let's not delude ourselves about anti-gay "religious" leaders in the US and their ultimate aims...

Proposed legislation would impose the death penalty for some gay Ugandans, and their family and friends could face up to seven years in jail if they fail to report them to authorities. Even landlords could be imprisoned for renting to homosexuals.... The legislation has drawn global attention from activists across the spectrum of views on gay issues. The measure was proposed in Uganda following a visit by leaders of U.S. conservative Christian ministries that promote therapy for gays to become heterosexual.

There's more than one way to make someone ex-gay, huh?
