Yow. Gays were definitely outnumbered at Love Won Out’s conference this weekend.
The “ex-gay” group gathered about 700 supporters and curious bystanders in San Jose to discuss how to fight their same-sex urges. One man, a minister named Anthony Jones, said he attended so he can “learn” more about the gays: “I’m hoping to learn approaches on how to minister to homosexuals to know and understand what their lifestyle is.” And what better way to learn about a group than to saddle up to those who want them dead. Gawd!
Meanwhile, ex-gay defamer Wayne Besen gathered a couple dozen true believers to protest ex-gay therapy. One protester, Joyce Rogers, had this to say: “These poor, deluded people inside are being told an absolute lie: that you can pray away the gay. If that’s the case, then you can pray away the straight, too.” That’s how we did it!
