Texas Republican Eats His Homosexuality

jeremy schwabSay hello to Republican weirdo Jacob Schwab (pictured at center.)

According to Texas activists, he’s the actor (yes, really, an actor) responsible for the state GOP adding a “reparative therapy” plank to the party platform. That’s weird enough … but just wait, he gets far, far weirder.

Commenting on his ex-gay background, Schwab wrote, “I think in some ways food replaced sexual sin for me and now I can’t even get into my own pants.”

Oooooookay. So because this guy eats away his feelings, he wants to subject people to ex-gay abuse?

Let’s be totally clear about what “reparative therapy” really is: it’s fake. Not real. Doesn’t work. At best, it’s a form of torture that destroys people.

Schwab is also the founder of an ex-gay group called Joel 2:25 International. “Reparative Therapy and this type of ministry work played a significant role in saving my life and I have been blessed to help many others over the past four years,” he wrote.

So, how’d Schwab wind up trapped in the ex-gay lifestyle? Well, he apparently had a run-in with dangerous quack Joseph Nicolosi. Nicolosi is technically a “doctor,” in that he has a degree and patients, but he subjects people to unproven, made-up, junk-science, pray-away-the-gay abuse.

Schwab was referred to a camp called “Journey into Manhood,” which sounds like a double-entendre joke from 30 Rock, but is actually a real thing. Since we know that Nicolosi’s patients claim to be ex-gay but actually have lots of homo sex behind his back, we can only assume that Journey into Manhood is exactly what it sounds like.

As for Schwab, here is a picture of him with Golden Girls star Rue McClanahan. The end.

    “I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten?” The group’s name makes almost as little sense as its practice.

    If anyone can be accused of having gay face, it’s Schwab.


    This vile creature has a face that would make a Mother puke……….

    He most likely was shot down each time he tried to meet someone and now as payback for all the rejection he is doing all that he can to make other Gays lives miserable….

    And BTW would be the farm that you can find him trolling at the local cruise area every night………

    I have three possible theories about how some gay people end up being like Joseph here. 1)These self-loathing idiots were raised by horrible right-wing parents who taught them to hate themselves and if that’s the case, they’re kinda victims themselves (still, at a certain point, they need to grow up! 2) They’re sick weirdos that think illicit sex is hot. And for gay sex to be illicit like it was decades ago, it has to be driven back in the closet, which is why these sociopaths work so hard against their own. Or 3) They’re crazy. Which isn’t that unusual, unfortunately. We have millions and millions of people walking around with untreated mental illness in the U.S. and as we know, the right-wing movement makes good use of them all.

      @james_in_cambridge: whoever Joseph is, those sound about right.

    If he’s now too fat to fit into his pants, per his own admission, that must be an old picture. He looks good there.

    Hope he manages to get some real therapy someday, and self-acceptance.
