Republican ‘Ex-gay’ activist: I replaced my homosexual feelings with food

  • @Mike-uk2011

    ‘Phallic’ shaped food to be precise.

    • chrisjames147

      Exactly. I was wondering in which orifice he shoves the bananas.

      • REALrenovato

        ROTFL

  • Riondo

    Displacement isn’t replacement, dear boy.
    And he seems to think obesity is healthier than getting it on with another guy. Pretty screwed up, I’d say.

    • Jesus_Mohammed

      Displacement, indeed!

      When I saw the mention of “the Lord”, it was confirmed we’re dealing with a religious nutter.

      But then on seeing the statement “I think in some ways food replaced sexual sin for me and now I can’t even get into my OWN pants”, it became clear the man is wilfully displacing his homosexual feelings by gorging on food.

      Sad. Very sad.

      I don’t wish to mock the afflicted, but, PN, how about a pic of the enlarged and unhappy Mr. Schwab?

      What a waste! He’s was hunky at the time he admitted his homosexual self.

    • http://www.pariss.info Pariss

      Very true

    • Allysa Alexandra Cribari

      Not to mention that he is picking and choosing what he believes to be socially acceptable sinning in his religion, *cough* glutton *cough*.

  • Oilgun

    He was a member of the Log Cabin Rebubs. Enough said.

  • Robert W. Pierce

    Hmmm, so how many women has he bedded yet? Any proof Mr. Schwab?

    • doug105

      And how much he had to pay them.

  • P

    Pink News, over this weekend I have repressed myself from saying this. This is twelfth article that I have read over the past 48 hrs but I’m going to say it now.
    ‘WHO CARES’?

    • Jesus_Mohammed

      You need to be aware, P. But if you don’t want to be aware, then don’t read.

      • p

        :D but I do want to be aware of story am just disappointed after reading it. If I had not read it I would not be able to comment…..

        • Truth

          Better to ‘know thine enemy’ …. as it says in some old novel …..

    • Frank Boulton

      P. Can’t you enjoy the funny side of all of these stories? Don’t you get a “frisson de joie” every time you see one of these religious homophobes score another own goal?

  • Oilgun

    He was a member of the Log Cabin Repubs. Enough said.

  • gingerlycolors

    I replace food with homosexual feelings and lost 7 stone!

    • gertieonherknees

      well I replaced my homosexual feelings , with actual sex. Found partner and got loads of shags.

    • Steven Gregory

      Sex is activity (and almost no calories).

      • REALrenovato

        Only if you swallow! (otherise, no calories)

        • Steven Gregory

          Hopefully it’s like celery: you don’t take in nearly as much as you burn.

  • Rachel M

    It’s amazing how many people eat when they are unhappy…

    • Truth

      Exactly ….!

  • Leonard Woodrow

    This guy clearly has a very low libido and a very high need for a celestial prop. He is way too credulous for his own good, but he deserves our sympathy … as do all closeted gays.

    • Jesus_Mohammed

      Sympathy, yes, but also a good sharp shock to bring him to his senses!

    • Truth

      Why turn to food? Surely, the Lord would have answered his need to be straight had he prayed hard enough. Or is his ‘belief’ not really that strong after all? Funny how these ‘believers’ can never quite summon enough belief when the chips are down …..

      • Yesh U R

        The chips in this instance are in his mouth!

      • Frank Boulton

        That’s just the guy’s Creationism at work on him. Those, who believe most literally in the Biblical creation story, are the ones who are forever telling us that God f***ed most of his creation up.

        • Truth

          Quite true! Their sky fairy is either ‘all powerful’ or she ain’t. But they call you a ‘bully’ or a member of the ‘gay mafia’ if you try to put these points to them ….

          • Frank Boulton

            They’re the ultimate proof that God doesn’t exist. He can’t fix his own cock-ups, because he doesn’t exist. So, these religious nutters have appointed themselves to be God’s Little Fixers.

        • Truth

        LOL………….. very True!

  • Ed Woody

    This is just so sad, on many many levels.

  • Chris in LA

    So, his answer is Gluttony. It is, according to Christian tradition, one of the 7 deadly sins along with Greed, that other corporate Republican obsession. But today’s “real” Christians recognize only one deadly sin — Lust. If your genitals are anywhere near it, you are doing something wrong. All else is okay. These people have discussed it with God and He’s agreed to go along with them. Demand that the 10 Commandments be writ large in the statehouse, but don’t bother to pass a single law that requires you keep any one of them. Why do these hypocrites open their mouths to share their fraudulent morals and theses? It only serves to make thinking people more determined to do the opposite.

    • Frank Boulton

      I agree with most of what you say and would draw attention to my other comment in this thread about the commandment in Deuteronomy about gluttony. However, let’s not say that they “have discussed it with God and He’s agreed.” About 2200 years of WILLFUL MISTRANSLATION is quite simply religious fruit-loops putting words into God’s mouth and this should be cause for concern to atheists and theists alike. (Translation is an art; mistranslation is a political science.)

      • Chris in LA

        But these fellows talk with God all the time. I have met people who trembled with emotion when talking about their interaction with God. Didn’t God tell Blair and Bush to attack Iraq? Or am I misremembering that. Anyway, these people are convinced that God agrees with them and they know they have discussed it with Him. All I am doing is accepting their word. Would it not be rude and insulting for me to doubt them?

        • Frank Boulton

          I agree with you entirely. I have no doubt that they talk to their imaginary friends and there’s no point in arguing with them about the replies that he gives them. I’ll simply leave my belief in the replies until such time as I can here them, too. And, yes, it would be rude and upsetting to disagree with them. One just responds to them in the same way as one would to a child telling you what its imaginary friend has said. So, when they say, “God told me that…” one just, “Really dear, that’s nice.”

    • tom_beauchamparnold

      Actually, the only recognized sin today is Lust*.
      ——-
      * For same sex couples. If you have opposite sex bits, have it it!

      • Chris in LA

        But there are rules for them, too. Don’t do unless you are married. Don’t do it before marriage. Don’t do with birth control gadgets. If you must do it, try not to enjoy it.

  • Yesh U R

    They get religion they go mad, he can get as big as Jabba the Hutt and will just be another Republican fat gay self-hating delusional fo k up.

    • Steven Gregory

      Sitting at Chik-Fillatio or Cracker Barrel or Country Buffet with the rest of the self-loathing people who are “just big boned.” Question: do Christians pray before seconds and thirds and fourths and dessert (rounds 1, 2 and 3)?

    sooo…maybe he wasn’t really gay. Maybe he just liked to give blow jobs.

    Yeah, but he’s still on Grindr

      Caption: “I never worry about being gay anymore! Now, the moment I think of it, I just EAT. And, best of all, no one at all, neither man nor woman, ever shows any interest in me!”

    • Dazzer

      Brilliant, sir. Just brilliant. I laughed so hard, I almost coughed up that crayon I ate when I was four years old.

    • de Villiers

      Whilst I think that this ex-gay person is clearly not right, laughing at the photograph of a person who quite clearly has a disability or medical condition is not funny.

      • Cal

        tickled me

        • de Villiers

          To laugh at a disabled person?

          • Cal

            Relax.

          • de Villiers

            That’s what people say when laughing at transgender persons or at gay jokes.

          • Cal

            Relax that sphincter.

          • Delusional Prophet

            I’d rather live in a world where people can laugh, thank you.

            A joke shouldn’t hurt. It’s the responsibility of the afflicted to develop a thick-skin and adapt to the real world. They shouldn’t be ‘safe’ from jokes, especially when they want to be accepted “like anyone else”.

    • tillthen

      Where is his pee pee?

  • Psychologist

    So-called “gay cures” don’t work. In fact they cause psychological damage.
    What is more likely is, he has supressed his gay feelings (which often results in depression, anxiety disorders) he is then depressed and unhappy, and takes up “comfort eating” as a way of trying to feel better about himself.
    Instead of desiring gay sex, he supresses that, and swaps his obsession to food instead.
    But .. he’s STILL GAY ! (just probably now much fatter !)

    • Frank Boulton

      Should we burst his bubble by telling him of the existence of chubby-chasers?

    • REALrenovato

      And on the way to diabeties and more serious health problems, a form of extended self harm and suicide – the sad fact is some people are taking this drivel he drools as a serious proposition and want to contine to allow harm to young people and teens who are gay, by promoting this delusional nonsense and not preventing the child abuse perpetrated by these physcotic sociopaths.

      • Psychologist

        Yes, that’s the REAL concern here – if others listen to, and believe the rubbish he says.

  • Bill Nedra Bill

    I am truly sorry for this man.

    • Truth

      I’m not. I’m just sorry that he has been in a position of influence …. which could result in untold psychologicl harm being done to others ….

    • PhillipSE5

      I’m not sorry for him at all……….. he’s made his choices……….. he’s chosen to be self-hating & to have a media profile which backs the ‘ex-gay’ movement & it’s vile practices which lead to massive emotional, spiritual & psychological pain & damage for many other gay people; I don’t even pity him. I despise him!

      • Valksy

        Agree, Philip. When this sad little t0sspot has his Ken Mehlman and wants to come crawling back, I hope the community shun him and send his noxious self packing.

  • http://thenakedgeek.shawwebspace.ca/ Barry William Teske

    Wow if this dude is just sample representation from Texas…
    Deep in the heart of Texas flows hate.
    Of self.
    Of others.
    Gives the term ‘Lone Star’ a rather ominous tinge.
    Bet that won’t be good for business.

  • Maryland Kid

    Well, I guess that this explains why the South is filled with fat people.

    • Rumbelow

      You mean all those obese people in the South are “ex-gays”?

      • Maryland Kid

        Well, I meant that as a joke. Obviously, in real life obesity is a problem in many different parts of the country, and it correlates most highly with income. I don’t mean to suggest that it’s not a serious issue, and I do believe that regardless of economic status everyone deserves access to healthy and nutritious food. But that isn’t as funny as talking smack about these ex-gay psychopaths.

  • Stuart

    Can’t stand being homosexual so instead comfort eats until he balloons in weight. Wow, don’t oversell this Ex Gay ‘healing’ business!

    • REALrenovato

      seems like a quick route to type 2 diabeties and loss of body parts

  • Truth

    Isn’t gluttony one of the seven deadly sins? What. SAD, self-loathing piece of excrement. HE has been able, at HUGE personal, psychological cost by the look of him, to suppress his given sexuality…… despite ALL the professional opinion that homosexuality needs no ‘cure’. If relgion didn’t teach your gay people to self-hate, there would be no requirement for ANY bogus ‘cures’. So, the answer is simple. Bring in a law which would prevent religion teaching that homosexuality is wrong. Problem solved all round.

    • Jesus_Mohammed

      Truth, would you agree that since PinkNews has “gone American”, there’s been a bit of an influx of shallow and superficial quips and comments? I think we need to show them how to communicate, that communication doesn’t necessarily involve trying to be the funny guy in a USA sitcom! :-)

      • PhillipSE5

        what’s your problem with using humour to fight oppression? It can be a very powerful weapon indeed!

    • Frank Boulton

      Look up Deuteronomy 21:20-21 for the Biblical commandment on gluttony. LOL.

    • PhillipSE5

      I agree with you all the way there……… if some crazy religion tried to teach children that racism was justified there would (quite rightly) be an uproar….. I always say when looking at such issues “if it wouldn’t be right in the context of race then it’s not right in the context of sexuality”.

  • SM Kovalinsky

    “I think in some ways food replaced sexual sin for me and now I can’t even get into my OWN pants.” LOL……that really is a great one-liner …..

    Just to make sure you’re not being a hypocrite my dear fellow, but have you checked to make sure that the foods that you have “replaced” your homosexuals desires for are not on the prohibited list as per Leviticus? After all, you might still be trading one forbidden thing for another…

  • Valksy

    I have no sympathy for this tedious self-loather. When someone willingly chooses an invisible friend, and then lets their own choice cause an existential crisis within themselves – essentially snotbubbling and grovelling that their invisible friend does not *like* them the way they are – I simply shrug and think, suck it up princess, some people have REAL problems. Like discrimination. Like hate. Like all those things Republican filth exploit in order to get morons to vote against their own self interest.

    We must categorically ban so-called reparative therapy for minors – not only is it snake oil, but it causes significant psychological harm and therefore likely crosses any understood boundaries into emotional abuse by the parents figures at the least. But if adults want to self-flagellate themselves? I truly do not care about them.

    • PhillipSE5

      All very True, + homophobic bigots are keen to fight against gay equality, because of their own hidden homosexual desires………..however much they might pray, & protest that people like us are immoral, they can never stop those moments when they wake up during the night having dreamed of their very own homosexual desires….. so very many of the homophobic bigots in the media look like great big closet queens…..

    Thank you,

    I was being SARCASTIC and trying to make a self-effacing joke. They used an old picture of me with my shirt off and I was just explaining that it was taken 7 years ago – BEFORE I came back to the Lord. I do not pose for pictures like that anymore for a variety of reasons – primarily because of the sin of vanity, but also I am obsessed with appearance the way I was back then.

    What replace homosexual behavior for me was my relationship with Jesus Christ, a tremendous amount of emotional healing, and many deep friendships which have been much more fulfilling for me.

    My platform plank protects the rights of self-motivated individuals who are seeking the same type of help that I received. Those who are not interested are NOT affected. This has no impact on the “Gay”-identified community at all. It is not “Anti-Gay” or Anti-anyone. It is simply PRO freedom of conscience.

    God Bless,

    Jeremy

    • JonParker

      I went through gay cure therapy when I was a teenager, all it did was just increase the hate I felt for myself until a stranger had to talk me down from a cliff. Personally, I oppose it, especially for minors, because the problem people who want it are having is that they hate
      themselves and gay cure therapy can only increase that self
      loathing, pushing them towards self-harm and/or suicide.

      I hope you can come to terms with who you are because I know what it is to hate yourself and deny yourself love and real friends.

    • Kyle

      You’re lying again Jeremy, you are a like a vulture trying prey on vulnerable gay teens even if they themselves are comfortable with their sexual orientations by encouraging their parents to reject them rather than accept them.

      http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-URh-G54tC4w/UnwMvlP2JfI/AAAAAAAAB_8/aKN6edWna64/s1600/Families.jpg

      • http://www.MySSAJourney.Blogspot.com Jeremy

        Yes Kyle, I DO believe that healing the emotional wounds that drive homosexual behavior is a positive thing and would benefit anyone who is willing to try it. IF you are not interested though, than you are completely free to disregard. Parents have a responsibility to teach the TRUTH and I do hope more parents will realize that real help is available and will help their teens find it – IF they are open to it. No licensed therapist will work with a teen against their will. That has not been a problem. The laws in CA and NJ targeted licensed therapist. By eliminated this help for families, religious families are more likely to trust churches with less experience and knowledge of the subject. THAT is where the abuses of the past have occurred. The laws in CA and NJ make have the opposite effect of what they claim is their goal.

        • Kyle

          What truth? Heterosexuals don’t have “homosexual issues”, you’re still a homosexual Jeremy, you even admit that much and there is absolutely no evidence that some phantom past “trauma” caused you to become a homosexual no matter how much supposed “comfort” you may derive from blaming all your past and present insecurities and problems on that delusion.

          You lied, again. What you are attempting to do does effect gay, lesbian and bisexual youth, whether they accept themselves or not. You are a predator who is attempting to prey on the young and vulnerable by recruiting their parents and encouraging them to reject their children rather than accept and support them as they are.

          That may be what happened to you and if it is, I am very sorry that you were made to go through that but what you are now doing is continuing a very vicious cycle, and it is unacceptable.

          • Kristine Fry

            You know it is funny. Aren’t you are doing the same exact thing to Jeremy that you did to your brother according to your account?!?!?! And for that matter you friends that you don’t even know – you declare that you know more about their sexuality than they do? You are a pendulum that has just swung to the opposite direction.

          • Kyle

            I’m far too aware of the reality of the kind of nonsense that Jeremy is insisting on trying to proselytize to the most vulnerable and I am not about to play into anyone’s delusions because it may or may not make them feel better about those delusions. Truth is the best disinfectant.

      Why are people who’ve ‘found god’ so self-satisfied and smug? I suppose that’s the effect of self-delusion for you ….
      I’m pleased you say you are happy, Jeremy. Personally, I can smell a lie right across the Atlantic. In this situation, there is absolutely no such thing as ‘ex-gay’ – only ‘ex-realist’. You are self-delusional about ‘finding god’ (as that is all just childish, self-delusional nonsense) and therefore self-delusional about being ‘cured’. FFS – enough of the self-loathing and self-pity, already! Just learn to love yourself …..

    • Delusional Prophet

      You have no soul, your emotions are nothing but brain chemicals going off in certain ways, there are no sins, and there is no YHWH.

  • Frank Boulton

    Note that this is just another case of the religious right wing using the Bible as a supermarket for convenient commandments. According to Deuteronomy 21:20-21, gluttony is just as worthy of the death penalty as male homosexuality. (Please, no one pull me up over a finer analysis of Leviticus 18:22 & 20:13. My point is that, if these people can’t live by their own holy book, then they shouldn’t expect anyone else to live by it.)

    • Truth

      But then, the religious homophobes are SO selective in their use of that old novel, are they not? WHY, one must keep asking, is it only the homosexuality bits with which they are so obsessed? I believe it says FAR more about their own issues than they would ever want you to know …..

        I think that they obsess only with the homophobic portions of their holy book for one good reason. It’s so hard and distasteful to live by that they only want other people to live by it vicariously for them.

    Tonight, I’ll be hosting a screening with others from Joel 2:25 at a church in the Fort Worth Diocese. This short film may provide more context than the news articles. This is NOT about “change” “curing” anyone’s attractions, although I wouldn’t rule out that possibility. That’s not what’s most important. What is most important is freedom from shame and discovering REAL love and TRUTH. http://vimeo.com/93079367

      Jeremy, if you want to live alone for the rest of his life and pursue unproven or disproved quack therapies in your futile and erotophobic, pinocchio-esque quest to become a real boy you ought to be absolutely free to do so, if your are hurting themselves by doing so (and the vast majority of so called “ex-gays” are) it is up to your friends and family to do something about it, not me or the state.

      The conflict arises if and/or when (and it is usually “when” because of the insecurities which are inherent within the “ex-gay” lifestyles of many) you try to proselytize to other vulnerable and already psychologically damaged people who are, for whatever reason, unable to accept their own orientations in order to get them to join you in your delusions, this is reprehensible and when done to teens and children it is utterly unacceptable.

        Kyle, I am happier today than ever before. I have more friends and deeper authentic connection and more REAL love in my life than I ever did when I was trying to pursue gay “relationships.”

        • Kyle

          Hey, whatever you need to keep telling yourself in order to keep the walls of your delusions from cranking and tumbling down around you.

          I can assure you of one thing though, your new friends, they don’t love you Jeremy not all of you, they love the way you are now, especially the heterosexual ones, believe me, I’ve been on that side. If tomorrow you fell in love with and married a man, the lion’s share would abandon and reject you in exactly the same way that they did before and there is nothing loving about that, no matter how you try to rationalize it.

        • JonParker

          I told myself the same things when I was going through this, but it wasnt until after I accepted myself that others were able to do the same. By denying who you are, you are denying yourself love, real friends and happiness. I hate seeing people go through what I went through and I hope you find the courage and strength to accept yourself. I know the first step is difficult, but it can get better, especially without the constant self-hate and inner turmoil that rejecting who you are causes.

          Jeremy Schwab – If you’re not having sex, what about self-love? Is masturbation out the door too? 100%? And no porn? You’re a totally sexless person now? This is the path you want others to follow who are “struggling?” Only heterosexual sex within a marriage is ok with you? Everything else is a sin?

          This is what conservatives want for America.

          If only the Nazis had had good video editing, they could have made videos of Jews beating up the SS, and reached the professional standard of this anti-gay christian propaganda. A video full of sad people hoodwinked by a religion run by child-molesting christian leaders.

    I wonder if he nibbles peas from the creases in washboard abs, or has a lapful of mashed potatoes, or perhaps peanut butter and jam off rock hard pecs. Food goes so far, but presentation is everything!

    Oh Snap…girlfriend doesn’t look like that no more………

  • RedDevil9

    It doesn’t matter how many sausages he eats in private, he’s still gay and he’ll eventually start having a gay relationships again. Though I reckon someone as loud as him is still acting on his desires in private anyway, either in a secret gay relationship or in other ways.

    “This resolution does not state that a person cannot be gay, nor does it try to intimidate gay persons. It only seeks to protect the rights and health of self-motivated individuals in the state of Texas.”

    Clear deception, because he knows parents will force their children to go to them, which can end in teen suicides, and some family members will reject a relative and also demand they attend one to be ‘accepted’ again. They need to be permanently banned.

    ugh! Just listening to this pathetic guy makes me cringe that he is the one Texas used for its Republican platform promoting reparative therapy…..I wonder what kind of food this guy likes, maybe hot dogs, sauages, etc.

    I guess I’m lucky, as I replaced my feelings for food with homosexuality. I’m now slim and gay – it doesn’t get much better :-)

    Nick, hopefully you all realized that it was a self-effacing joke. (“can’t even get into my OWN pants”) – Already, maybe it was DUMB joke, but I was trying to lighten things up. Regardless, I do not see how my physical appearance would be relevant to this topic. I wish we could talk about this in an open dialogue. I have never seen this as an “Anti-Gay” issue or anti anyone. It is simply about protecting free speech. Anyway, if you’d be open to talking about this more, please email me at: Jeremy@Joel225.org
    God Bless,

      “I think in some ways food replaced sexual sin for me and now I can’t even get into my OWN pants.” You said that “I think in some ways food replaced sexual sin for me…” Is that not true? Or is the entire statement a joke? It appears you have gained weight from the WFAA report you were on.
