CTV Yanks Ex-Gay Ad

Canadian viewers got an earful when CTV ran an ad advocating gay change.

The 30-second spot featured a man confessing his own queer conversion:

You hear a lot about gay rights, gay marriage and the gay lifestyle being taught in our public schools for children, but what many people don’t realize, and seldom hear, is that many homosexuals don’t want to be homosexual. What many who are struggling with homosexuality don’t realize, and seldom hear, is that they can change. I should know – for 13 years, I used to be one.

It didn’t take long for irate activists to take to Facebook and launch a campaign against the commercial. And, as you can tell from the headline, it worked.

CTV spokesman Scott Henderson also insists he and his colleagues weren’t feeling the commercial either: It was something that was taken very seriously at the highest levels of CTV. It’s completely against all of our own codes.”

      If it’s so aganst their codes, how did it get on there in the first place? Don’t people check this stuff before they put it out on the air?

      I’m sorry, but that mustache begs to differ with his straight “conversion.”
