    The man made his decisions. Like a Jonestown citizen, it’s best just to mourn him and move on. He wasn’t abducted. Focus your energy on making the kids more self confident, and consider this one dead.

    Hey Fitz: I guess if you were around when the Nazis were taking Jews forcefully you would have had the same advice, you know just mourn them and consider them dead………………..

    We also have to realize that like every other “ex-gay”, he’ll come around soon enough when his hormones start raging and he’ll be just another prime example of the complete fallacy of the whole movement.

    Ah, yes, the Nazi argument. Gotta love it. As much as I despise ex-gay conversion, equating it to mass genocide is disingenuious, at best.

    I still stand by the opinion that it’s completely possible he was forced to go. Maybe not physically, but there IS such a thing as coercion.

    We need to work harder to save our fellows from this brain washing.

    @terrwill: Don’t be such a douche. He went on his own. Probably paid a fee to get in.

    Apparently everyone has forgotten that people are different and respond to things diferently. I never thought I would say that on a gay website, but I’m saying it so often now. I see so many egocentric responses to things on this and other websites, it drives me crazy! Why does everyone think that everyone should respond the way they do? I went through something similar where my parents tried to “turn me straight” but I rebelled and made my own life, I’m accomplished and my parents now accept me fully and wish they had never done what they tried to do, but I completely accept that this kid is not me, he does not respond the way I do, and he does things differently. He respects things differently, understands differently, loves and hates differently, so why would I say that he is right or wrong? Just because I was strong enough to rebel does not mean he was too weak. We forget that we have to see the possibility that other people ARE DIFFERENT from us, of all people WE SHOULD KNOW THAT!!

    I was so impressed with #8 I thought it should be posted again:

    Does anyone know what happened to this guy? I remember being extremely interested in this story and then it just disappeared. Any updates?
