Ex-Gay PFOX President Can’t Wait To Be Sued By Wayne Besen For Defamation

Last week we mentioned that LGBT Activist Wayne Besen had threatened to sue Greg Quinlan, the President of Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays (PFOX), for claiming on TV that Besen had publicly called for Quinlan’s death via AIDS needle or runaway bus. This week, Quinlan has responded to Besen’s threat with just the right (and expected) amount of sarcastic glee and self-victimization.

Here’s Quinlan’s response:

“Wayne, if you really feel you must waste money you could be using to bash ex-gays, bully Christian churchgoers and spread the lie that people who are trapped in unwanted homosexuality can never escape it, I say knock yourself out. We’re happy to countersue and expose the hundreds of smears you and Truth Wins Out have lodged against me and other pro-family advocates. Smears that actually amount to defamation. Little man, I’m calling your bluff.”

And Besen responded to Quinlan’s response with this responsive response:

“We are preparing a lawsuit and PFOX will soon realize that this is no bluff. PFOX will not be able to pray away this lawsuit any more than they can pray away the gay. The outcome of this disturbing matter will be settled in a court of law.”

We can’t wait to see the long-time LGBT activist slug it out against a practitioner of psychologically-harmful quackery. We got the Jiffy Pop and the Diet Shasta ready to go.
