When It's Time To Change

Ex-Ex-Gays: Meet The People Who Tried To “Cure” You


John Smid


Smid ran another ex-gay ministry, this one based in Memphis, called Love in Action. He’d left his wife in 1980 to be with guys, but had misgivings and tried to go straight again, balls out, by becoming a leading spokesman for conversion therapy. Methinks the lady doth protest too much. In 2011 he went ex-ex-gay, and admitted he “never met a man who experienced a change from homosexual to heterosexual.” There you have it.
