Ex-Gays: We'll take down Republicans with witty one liners

Those poor, poor ex-gays. Isn't it unfortunate when they're unable to peddle their fake science and general bullshit? PFOX is whining on the tipstupid-people-shut-up.jpg line today that Republican chairman Michael Steele won't meet with them.

"Michael Steele, chair of the Republican National Committee, has consistently refused to meet with members of the ex-gay community," said Greg Quinlan of Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays (PFOX). "Now we know why. The RNC would rather use donor funds for its staff to watch lesbian erotica at nightclubs than help support individuals who wish to leave homosexuality."

In last year's interview with Gentleman's Quarterly magazine, Steele compared being homosexual to being black and was quoted as doubting that ex-gays exist... To date, Steele has refused to meet with members of the ex-gay community, including African-American former homosexuals...

"It's no wonder the RNC continues to lose factions of its members, such as Tea Party conservatives," said Christopher Doyle, a former homosexual and PFOX board member. "Michael Steele would be better off if he extended ex-gays a place at the table rather than paying his staff to watch lesbians dance on it at strip clubs."

My little heart bleeds, but with a snappy ending like that, I'm thinking someone's still channeling Oscar Wilde.

How sad do you have to be to not be taken seriously by Michael Steele? Oh, I know: as sad as a bunch 0f people who loath themselves so much that they think they aren't gay anymore.

For an ex-gay, that gurl can READ.

She shaaaaaaaadyyyyyyyyyy!!!! GURL!

I've always found it curious that they refer to themselves as "ex-gay" and "former homosexuals" instead of straight and heterosexual. Perhaps because they're not.

No shit causes big problems! Who are these x-gays? Maybe No shit beacuse X-Gay has head stuck in but?
