Y'all are great.
Lovin' this conversation. Sol Invictus, it burns me up that you too went through all that . . .garbage. . .and I have several 3D friends who've gone thru it, too. It's just a sad waste of years out of your life, at best, permanently damaging or fatal at worst.
Joe - as far as starting a more wide-reaching campaign to educate that moveable middle about the ex-gay stuff, let's brainstorm. Why on earth not? Jamie, are you reading? Maybe it's something we forumites could start, with slow and simple things, like. . .whenever we find media coverage on ex-gay ministries that neglects to share all of what we need to have shared with the audience, we could all write letters to the editor/newsrooms, etc. That sounds small and more or less easily begun. Not necessarily as representing Soulforce, but we could be the resource for each other when stuff goes on locally, and then we could take small actions as individuals. What does everyone think? Jamie, ya readin' this?
