Why are you stuck on this ex-gay stuff? What's in it for you? Science has also shown (and this means data not faith) that it is harmful to people.
I have a slightly different point of view about this. My feeling is a large proportion of LGBT people have been driven into self-destruction and suicide by their religions. I would say their faith or spirit is what suffers the most damage. If your belief system teaches a "God" that you are not designed to satisfy and you are a person of deep faith, you could lay your death directly at their door. And that is violating Commandment 6. It's slow motion murder. And that is why I say the Spirit of Christ has become a little conspicuous in it's absence from a lot of churches. If a belief system teaches condemnation and not inspiration what good is it? Where is the "Love One Another"?
