Because Blogger's "Adult warning" often goes into a perpetual loop (isn't working properly), I will be making all new posts at my WordPress blog. You can follow it even if you do not have a WordPress Account. There're also my Twitter and my Tumblr blog, my Facebook and my Google+ page and my group.
(Update: Blogger hasn't fixed its problem with the "adult warning". Will go back to posting at my WordPress blog)

Interview with Ex-Gay Survivor

An interview with Jacob Wilson, who was subjected to "treatment" in the Christianist ex-gay program, "Love in Action".

A fascinating and revealing insight into internalised homophobia and self-deceit and how you just don't "get zapped by the straight gun".  These people in effect teach you to kill part of yourself, and you then project that self-hatred against others.

As he says:  "part of myself died inside" and  "it gave me a critical and hateful heart."  The Christian-Fascists just can't see how the whole program is un-loving and hateful.  Jacob Wilson managed to escape the clutches of these loonies.  And survived one suicide attempt.  But others don't.
