The nonprofit Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays has documented a long list of incidents of verbal abuse by homosexuals who challenge the premise that there are former homosexuals, despite the documented cases.
But now the homosexual activists have had a wrench thrown in their argument, with the admission by a homosexual conference presenter that being “gay” isn’t necessarily permanent.
“Sexuality is fluid, especially when it goes beyond the binary of ‘gay’ and ‘straight’ labels,” says a description of the “Beyond Bisexuality: Living Between the Labels” seminar presented by Prideworks for LGBT Youth.
“The way a person experiences it may change over time and with monogamy, which may make labels confusing and ultimately unnecessary.”
The seminar was presented Nov. 16 by Kathleen Harrison of Emmanuel College and Cameron Duplessis of the University of Connecticut, according to the organization’s website.
Prideworks is a “conference for lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender youth and their allies,” according to the organization’s website. Its mission is “to inform our communities about the realities of growing up gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, and to inspire them to respect and support LGBT people and to advocate for positive change.”
One of the sponsors is GLSEN Hudson Valley, a division of the national Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network organization that drew attention at the beginning of Barack Obama’s term in the White House. The group’s founder, Kevin Jennings, was appointed by the Obama administration to decide what “safety” programs could be mandated for public schools.
Greg Quinlan, the president of PFOX, told WND the admission by homosexual activists isn’t complicated.
“It means that they honestly know and they’ve always known, they factually know, that sexuality is fluid and is a choice. You choose who you go to bed with,” he said. “This means a lot to our organization.”
He said he’s personally experienced verbal challenges to his organization’s premise that there are people who have left the homosexual lifestyle.
Quinlan said that a few years ago at a National Education Association conference, where PFOX had a booth, a pro-homosexual activist launched into a “violent tirade” because of the group’s presence.
Matt Barber, an attorney with Liberty Counsel Action, told WND that the truth shouldn’t surprise anyone.
“The sexual anarchists’ lobby want to have their cake and eat it too,” he said. “They want to say that homosexuality … is fluid, yet they also want to say for political purposes, for legal purposes, that sexuality is fixed.
“You can’t have it both ways,” he said. “They acknowledge that sexuality is fluid, that it may change over time. How do you reconcile that with the nonsensical notion that people, once self-identified as gay are gay forever?”
He said “ex-gay deniers” want to reject the idea that people can or ever have left homosexuality.
But he said at the same time, these very seminar events are encouraging students to explore homosexuality.
“How do you know you’re not gay if you don’t experiment?” he said the kids are asked.
But he said the truth aligns with what a federal judge in California wrote in a decision regarding counseling minors who have unwanted same-sex attractions. The judge said the idea sexuality is unchangeable is based on “scientifically questionable and incomplete studies.”
