GREG QUINLAN – President of PFOX (Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays)
They are so afraid of people discovering their sexuality and realizing that no one is born a homosexual and learning that they can actually change if they want to it is for this reason that they preach against us with such hate and venom, attacking us for exercising our right of self-determination.
It is obvious that the ex-gay movement has become such a threat to the homosexual agenda that their allies in the media and entertainment industry now feel they have to work so diligently to discredit us,” said Quinlan. “Why is this so high on their agenda? Is CBS now so desperate to try to get any kind of market share in primetime that they have to go this route?
MAT STAVER – Liberty Counsel:
“It is shocking that they would be so blatant and so insensitive to simply disregard the reality of what takes place during this change therapy. [snip] “It’s no different from marriage therapy. It all revolves around talking and listening to the client while trying to find out what their objectives and goals are. The client has the right to set their own counseling objectives and the counselor attempts to help them reach those objectives. It’s the same type of counseling a person would receive if they were struggling with infidelity or depression because they had just lost their job or lost a loved one.”
LINDA HARVEY – Mission America:
“There is absolutely no evidence behind the premise of the show. It is total and complete propaganda. Not only is it discriminating against these individuals, they slam everyone who is attempting to overcome these feelings even though there is no evidence that these feelings are inborn and say your opinions on the issue don’t matter.
The homosexual lobby and its supporters are now deciding there is a desperate need to discredit people who want to partake in conversion therapy. It’s beyond jaw-dropping how full of lies this episode is. It is harmful, insulting and people need to call the network demanding an apology to the Christian community and all of the ex-homosexuals out of there who’ve successfully left this lifestyle. If they’re going to do a show on this, they need to also do a show on the harm done by groups like PFLAG and others who were pushing children into the homosexual lifestyle”
