I am indescribably angry right now.
The short story:
-16 year old gay male kid comes out to his parents.
-Parents send kid to boot camp run by "evangelical Christians".
This is legit, there's been a little bit of media attention to it.

I don't care if your gay straight or somewhere in the middle, if you can't feel for this boy, you aren't human. Zach has been sent to an evangelical christian "scared straight" camp by his parents called Love In Action. Love is possibly the worst adjective to describe this camp. please read his blog at,
Please re-post this so as many people as possible can see it.
If you'd like to give "Refuge", the "Ministry" that runs the boot camp, your opinion on their practices, their phone number is 901.751.2468; you might ask for a Mr. Tommy Corman, the reference provided on their site.

I am litteraly angry with rage! This is not the crulest thing i have herd herd, but its pretty close.
WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH THESE FUCKING EVANGIC. BIBLE THUMPING, 10TH CENTUIRY, ILLITERAT, DICKHEADS!
I HATE THEM ALL!!!!!!!!
Seriously, these guy's are living in the fucking middle age's and its about time they lerned that the earth is not the center of the univers, moon's orbit jupider and leprosy is not caused my evil wizards(whitches). The burnings, tourchutings, confessors and inquisitors all died out three centuries ago, but these vigillanty fuckhead are still parading around peddling their posinous filth witch not only hurts people, it make's people angry about relligion, and despite the fact that relligion has caused a huge amount of pain and strife and continues to today, it has also brought a huge amount of good things. So i realy wish people in the future will. NOT remeber us as a bunch of book burning idiots, who restricted progress and humain dignaty to apease a possibly fictional deity that had a nasty mean streak
I can rant about this all day, but i realy have more important things to do then yell some more about Relligious Idiots (and thats every single relligion, not just the one's that begin with C... and P... and I, B,Z,C again and practicaly the entire alphabet)

I'm a Christian and I just wanted to say sorry to all the gay guys out there who've had sh*t thrown their way by my brothers and sisters. Believe it or not we're actually supposed to be standing up for the oppressed, not oppressing people ourselves.
We suck big time sometimes. I don't think God is too pleased about it either - he's on your side =)
Love and kisses to all the gay people out there. You're amazing!
In this modern society, you would think that there was no dumb redneck racits left! Forcing someone to go to a camp to reprogram their minds into their parenths wishes? Isent that called ''Brain whashing''?
I could from here draw parales to Nazi germany and their camps, but i dont have the time, really.
Is he even a cristhian? ( i cant get that blog to work...)
On the contrary the world si full fo racists and homophobes, nobody talks about ti in papers or on tv because its a taboo subject. It's only mentioned when things like this happen or when violence is involved.
Aside from the fact that most of it is driven by fear, homophobic people who alsh out but they dont actually udnerstand what ti si they fear, "oh they'll coem onto me" sort of attitude.
Or just imagine someone who comes from some obscure part of africa who meets a white person at the age of lets say 16 for the first time. They'd be scared, fearful, that can eb said to be racist, but its understandable and can eb forgiven unlike others who fidn their pride and stubbornness too much.
We all expect everything to be all godo nowadays with us being in the modern world. But things that existed for centuries ebfore the 20th century havent died, they've just been covered up by the modern era philosophy as taboo. We're lucky we've gotten as fara s we have already.
