Madonna’s divorce definitely grabbed headlines, but here’s one that we find far more fascinating: ex-gay activists Greg Quinlan and Cheryl Quinlan called it quits.
The couple became poster children for the “cured queer” movement and even used their marriage as a political chip, like when Greg Quinlan testified to Ohio lawmakers that he and his wife were proof gays don’t need marriage rights – we can just go straight! Said Mr. Quinlan:
Tens of thousands of homosexuals have changed and more desire to change. Homosexuality is a behaviorâ€“not a genetic trait. Based on verifiable evidence, there is no justification for same sex marriage, civil unions, or domestic partnership legislation. None.
My wife and I are living proofâ€“along with thousands of othersâ€“that persons with same-sex attraction can, and have, changedâ€“and thereby can marry and be happy again.
We have chosen to follow the Manufacturesâ€™ specific guidelines for our lives. That means committed to one another as man and woman.
Poor Greg spoke too soon, huh?
