God can cure homosexuality. Stop being an abomination!
It didn’t work for James Randi, but then he’s a heathen. And the American Psychological Association doesn’t agree, but “Straight Camps” claim they can heal you of your homosexuality through therapy consisting of song, prayer, manly sports, exercise, and faith…
If you happen to be in Berkeley, CA, this Friday, come attend the following seminar instead of trying to pick someone up in a local public restroom (‘Ha! There aren’t any public restrooms in Berkeley’, you say.)
Ted Cox will be presenting his “What I Learned at Straight Camp” talk for the on-campus group SANE (Students Advocating a Nonreligious Ethos):
Starting in 2007, Sacramento writer Ted Cox went undercover in gay-to-straight therapy programs. He attended weekly support meetings, conferences and a 48-hour “healing touch” camp in Arizona.
This presentation details the weird times he had posing as a “same-sex attracted” Christian and includes music, videos and a live demonstration.
Date: Friday, April 9.2010
Location: Cal Campus, 2050 VLSB (Map)
Ted will speak about his intervention adventures at a Christian camp (no pun intended) designed to change one’s sexual orientation, like it’s some sort of mental disorder.
This is a wholesome and godly retreat where a dozen men stay in a cabin together – but it’s not like sex ‘addicts’ who attend therapy to pick up partners at all…
I’m particularly intrigued by the “live demonstration”, and I wonder if Ted received a certificate upon completion of the course…now that’s one I want right next to my certificate of ordination from Universal Ministries.
See you there! And remember…Christian circle-jerking is straight…
