This merger of Side A and Side B positions is one of the most ridiculous theater I have come across.For those uninitiated in the jargon of modern Ex Gay tactics, side A refers to people who believe same sex attraction and ACTION is normal! and side B refers to people who believe that same sex attraction is okay and a sad, lived reality of some human beings but not to be acted upoon.
Unless such groups clearly indicate which side they belong to… and the two are incompatiable, as demanding that people live in lifelong celibacy is not by any stretch of the imagination to allowing people to have the beautiful gift of same-sex intimacy, relationships and marraige even; the legitimacy and integrity of such associations are clearly suspect.
How can you honestly sit with a bunch of people who believe that you dont have a right to be intimate with partner of the same sex and still claim that you share a similar testimony of faith?
So now the mormons are dressing their hate up in song and dance?
I.ve said it before and I’ll say it again- actions speak louder than words. The actions of the mormon church continue ro push for ongoing harassment and mistreatment of gays.
Sorry, a really bad stage production doesn’t change that.
Neither does the pride in Utah, the websites – they are all propaganda, aimed at softening the image of this bizarre cult. As long as their messahe remains “change or be celibate”, a disgusting, degrading attempt to strip gays of our very humanity, I.d don’t care if they show up to every Pride, flailing their arms like freaks amd in that cult tone all the weirdos use, shouting about faux understanding amd love.
@Samuel: They can claim to “share a similar testimony of faith,” most likely, because they do. Similar, not exactly the same.
Side B, as I understand it, does not always mean no relationships. Some people on that side have them, lasting as long as anyone else… they just don’t have sex. (Some avoid physical expression entirely, others don’t.)
The whole idea seems all wrong to me: Jesus equated hatred with murder and inappropriately aimed lust with adultery, so clearly the desire to sin is itself sinful. So either it’s wrong (whether correctible or not) to have such feelings towards someone of the same sex (the ex-gay position), or else there are situations where it’s OK to act on them (Side A). Either way, Side B falls apart.
Of course, that’s within the framework of the more usual forms of Christianity. Mormons are a bit different, and of course from the outside all that would be nonsense anyway.
Queerty refused to report on the anti-gay activities of the Mormon church for ages, including is ties to NOM.
Now suddenly there have been more than one article about this phone P.R. attempt.
There has been zero changes. The church still says that being gay is a sin, they still say that all homosexual activity is not allowed.
Why did Queerty refused to report on the large number of anti-gay activities but is now over eager to report on this phony and extremely transparent stunt?
@Cam: You need a new song.
1. Typical defense of the Mormons. You can’t point out where anything I said was incorrect so you just attack with some vague little statement that says nothing.
2. I’ll get a new song when the Mormons do. When they stop attacking gays and funding laws that would strip rights from gays I’ll stop pointing it out.
@Cam: You have a pathological obsession. Seek help.
