  1. ‘I remember on our wedding night, when we finally consummated our marriage, I literally screamed at the top of my lungs – JESUUUUSSSS! Like, I was so happy! He delivered me, you know? I love women! And I love my wife’s body! And I love her physically, and it’s holy!”

    Yeah … you keep telling yourself that my friend.

  2. Theirs no cure to being gay or lesbian,this group is about pretending your straight & forcing you to be with women even if you dont really want too…guilt trip.

    i think the guy was saying how much he loved his wife because he has to tell himself that & maybe just maybe he’ll believe it….

  3. Whilst I cautiously welcome the school banning the Miracle Christian Centre seminar, I think the school needs to take more care in how it permits bookings and the purpose the bookings are for.

    In one sense I hope the Miracle Christian Centre do sue and lose and have costs awarded against them. Australian law (whilst not perfect) is reasonably good at dealing with bigotry.

    They can lie to themselves that they are not homophobic, that they are not prejudiced but the evidence doesn’t support that view.

    1. “…the school needs to take more care in how it permits bookings…”

      You mean a beatific smile and mellifluous incantation of a popular verse or two from a loving BRANDISHED Bible is somehow lacking in credentials?

      1. Just a tad … lol

  4. RE : Video Clip ….This Adam is such a queen, still looking for any attention , running around the Castro on drugs taking council from the homeless… honey you should write comic books and you ll find if you take Lithium regularly the voices in your head will eventually stop

    More religious Nutjobs promoting damaging claims. Only ever thinking of themselves not the intended victims.

    Shameful.

    Seriously the sooner religion is a thing of the past only read about in history book for the misery they caused the better.

    1. The thing is Jock S Trap, I would like that, but I can’t see it ever happening …
      There are too many people who believe for it to be eliminated – and in any event they are free to believe what they like and have any ceremony they like as long as they don’t intrude on others or their rights
      I dont agree with religion
      I think the world would be a better place without it
      I think the hope of the world not having any is about as likely as the second coming

    Adam Hood Adds a whole new meaning to the word False.

    1. Yeah, you can almost here him say “remember how straight they said I looked, darling?”

      Poor man, so agoraphobic, can’t leave that closet.

      :)

        A Very bad case of denial me thinks. One of the worst I’ve seen in years.

        :)

      2. Jock S. Trap 1 Apr 2011, 2:40pm

        Secret cottager ya reckon?

        :)

        1. Oh, totally. They always are. Practice in private, protest in public.

          1. Jock S. Trap 2 Apr 2011, 7:49am

            Until they get caught then it’ll be, “I lost my way… blah blah blah” Yawn

    2. I wouldnt say its new … been plenty like him before … and will be plenty more unless we get our act together and find a way of educating smarter

  7. I’m not a fan of Roman Catholicism but good on them.
    Another bunch of screwed-up nutters saying they love the people they want to be as screwed up as them.

    1. Well said Riondo – also not a fan but refreshing to see them (for whatever reason wholeheartedly good or not) standing up for equality to an extent

    2. Jock S. Trap 2 Apr 2011, 7:49am

      Exactly Riondo!

  8. the idiots claim not to be homophobic yet they’ve come out so they admit to being idiots and liars and repressed, they shoot themselves in the foot with comments like that, plus there is no lifestyle anyways

  9. Keith Lynwood 1 Apr 2011, 11:35am

    religious freaks…..

    “I remember on our wedding night, when we finally consummated our marriage…”

    Well, at least that’s better than the “ex-gay” president of Exodus International. He and his wife took 9 months to consummate theirs.

    1. ….and then ran off to marry the other bloke “who was also cured”.

      What a laugh.

      1. And let’s not forget George Rekers’s little one-on-one ex-gay ministry. That guy doesn’t get enough credit.
        He never tires of trying to cure gays, poor love, why he even looks up rentboy websites and pays to take them on holiday with him for ‘theraputic’ purposes!

    ‘Gay Cure’

    hmmm… So why do we have to change the way we were born in accordance to a religious lifestyle choice again?

    1. There’s no “cure” for sexuality, period; use it for the pleasure or stuff it into your closet, but keep yourselves out of the lives of your fellows.

      The use of “cure,” like the use of “choice,” must be applied across the board, without exception, to all human sexual expression. See how a broader view can make things look.

      1. Jock S. Trap 2 Apr 2011, 7:52am

        I have quite a big closet, however I have no desire to stay in it.

  12. “We are not afraid of homosexuals; we love them, we’ve ministered to them for years.

    No, you “ex-gays” are just totally terrified of your own homosexual orientation which at best you can only deny and only pretend you have changed to straight. Wake up to yourselves and stop living a dangerous lie.
    What’s it like living as a dishonest lying fake day in and day out?

  13. The whole thing is just ridiculous. There is no such thing as an “ex-gay”. All these pitiful people are doing is deluding themselves.

    They can keep telling themselves this nonsense til hell freezes over–they are still gay and nothhing is going to change that.

  14. Mumbo Jumbo 1 Apr 2011, 12:56pm

    Gay as a yellow duster. Mad as a hatter.

    “It’s holy! And God is good! And he created sex! And he wants us to enjoy it…*realises*…in the proper context….”

    LOL

  15. “We are not afraid of homosexuals; we love them, we’ve ministered to them for years.”

    Sure you do, but I bet you do more than “minister” to them…. like most of Exodus, they “ministered” in gay bars after their so called conversion.

  16. me think ms Hood doth protest -eth too much -eth -

  17. I wonder when the “ex-gay” brigade (lead by the sparkling wit and charm of that primate we call Skinner) will arrive into the thread…..

    …..any minute now. Wait. Wait…. they’ll be here and teach us all a thing or two about our “lifestyle choices” and how Jesus saved them from a life of love, happiness and self esteem.

  18. Bisexual + idiocy = “I am gay”. Bisexual + guilt = “I am ex gay”.

  19. To clarify my previous post as it seems that some signs don’t work: Bisexual plus idiocy equals the I am gay thought. Bisexual plus guilt equals the I am ex gay thought.

    Let’s see.

    “Australia”.
    “Catholic”
    “Gay cure seminar”
    “Accident”

    Any takers?

    Nope. Didn’t think so..

    chrissie
    xxx

  21. I’m sorry, but he has to be the campest closet case I have ever seen.

  22. In the article title I would of written it ‘ accidentally ‘

  23. How can you be cured of something that isn’t an illness?

  24. The gay cure is brain washing and deprograming and needs to be outlawed. If you or anyone you know has been harmed by them report them to the police and get a lawyer and sue them out of business before they kill somebody.

    1. Jock S. Trap 2 Apr 2011, 7:53am

      Good comment.

  25. OMG my “gaydar” just went up and way…

    Keep on telling yourself you’re straight for the rest of your life, I’m not gonna believe you.

  26. We know there is no cure for being gay or lesbian, but I wish there was a cure for religious stupidity and bigotry.

    1. Some people can be won round and made to see the inappropriateness of their views and actions by reason and discussion, some require more dynamic exposure of their bigotry – others, sadly, are so entrenched in their views that it is unlikely we can reason with them … shouldn’t stop us trying – as they may be in the former two groups

    2. “. . . but I wish there was a cure for religious stupidity and bigotry.

      We can hope – Lol

      1. Jock S. Trap 3 Apr 2011, 12:18pm

        But they can, religion is a choice, they can stop or change unlike sexual orientation.

  27. Don Harrison 3 Apr 2011, 8:14pm

    I am gay and do not need a cure.
    It is the homophobes who need curing for their bigotry.

  28. WHAT are they doing anyway discussing SEX, yet again in a seminary.
    Not a case of obsession is it..?
    Not much.
    LIke poor kids with their noses pressed up against the toffee-shop window a-hankerin’ a-hankerin’ and a-hankerin’ but with no penny.
    They make me bleed from the bum, they do really.!
