WATCH – SNL and Ben Affleck Hysterically Mocks Ex-Gay Movement In “New Beginnings” – Video

Ben Affleck SNL New Begginings Straight Camp

Ben Affleck  (looking beary beefy) and  the cast of Saturday Night Live ruthlessly and hysterically mocked  the “ex-gay movement” last night in the skit “New Beginnings”

Affleck stars as summer camp counselor Marvin, who is trying to ‘cure’ the kids from being gay at  “New Beginnings” a gay reform camp in Flagstaff, Arizona, who says things like “Hetero is better, yo.”

Among the camp attendees are the delightfully flamboyant Moynihan, Thompson, Tim Robinson, and Aidy Bryant.

Best line of the skit had to be Affleck’s Marvin talking about movie night showing of the ‘The Outsiders’

“Look at Ralph Macchio’s pillow lips.  This is going to be a disaster”
