Looky here, another "pro-family" group has a suggestion for how to change Queer Eye for Straight Guy. While the Montana Family Coalition would prefer to eradicate gay people by killing them off with AIDS, a recent commentary on Straight Talk Radio, a new syndicated offering on Christian radio stations, advocates eradicating gay people by eradicating gayness.
A ministry combating the homosexual agenda has begun producing daily radio commentaries entitled "Straight Talk Radio."If you're unfamiliar with the ex-gay movement, you may not want to read further. Stretching back more than 50 years, the movement's "therapies" have included everything from the usual fire-and-brimstone scare tactics, to the use of nausea-inducing drugs and gay porn to try to form a mental link between queers and wanting to vomit, to even more elaborate setups with electronic genital hookups that provide pleasure when naked girls are shown and torture when naked guys are shown, to even more horrificly crude experimentations with shock therapy that sometimes involved car batteries. Over the last decade, the movement has gained particular popularity, with services being provided by a growing number of conservative churches and advocated by the nation's top conservative moralizers and right-wing radio talkers. There are many, many instances of the movement's "ex-gay" leading lights either being caught cruising in gay bars, backrooms and bathhouses, or leaving on their own volition and denouncing the movement. For example, both co-founders of the nation's (and world's) largest ex-gay group, Exodus, and the leader of its largest chapter have all left the movement and denounced it. The movement's most well-known leader, a man who even appeared on the cover of Newsweek years ago, has been caught in a gay bar -- twice. Recently, the movement has quietly shifted away from trying to turn gays straight, something that doesn't really happen (though some people can realize their bisexuality and focus on the opposite sex), to just trying to get gay people to become abstinent. The more tortuous therapies have been largely abandoned, though the use of nausea-inducing drugs is still an occasional feature. Clients are predominantly young adults who are forced into the movement after coming out to their fundamentalist parents.
Stephen Bennett, an ex-homosexual and head of Stephen Bennett Ministries, hopes to educate listeners about the goals of the homosexual community through the one-minute commentaries.
Yesterday's commentary, entitled "Christian Eye for the Queer Guy," was a discussion of Bravo TV's program "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy."
Says Bennett in his audio piece: "The show's message to America is quite clear: We need gay men to teach straight men how to be real men." He challenges the cable network to create a show where Christian men show a homosexual man how he can "become a new man in Christ as in 2 Corinithians 5:17 … proclaiming through the power of Jesus Christ homosexuals can change."
