... and has the decency to apologize for the harm his hocus-pocus has caused:

So in 2003, I left the public ministry and gave up my role as a spokesman for the “ex-gay movement.” I began a new journey. In the decade since, my beliefs have changed. Today, I do not consider myself “ex-gay” and I no longer support or promote the movement. Please allow me to be clear: I do not believe that reparative therapy changes sexual orientation; in fact, it does great harm to many people.

I know that countless people were harmed by things I said and did in the past,

Parents, families, and their loved ones were negatively impacted by the notion of reparative therapy and the message of change. I am truly, truly sorry for the pain I have caused.

But really, judging by the photo that ran with his article, this guy could not not still be gay:

Well, I couldn't tell by just looking at the photo. There are a lot of straight guys that look that way. I applaud him for not living a lie anymore. It's sad that he ever felt compelled to deceive everyone with his charade.

I don't judge people by their looks. Their actions may cause me to pause and wonder about their sexuality, however. There are sensitive men who are straight as straight can be. It's just something I don't spend much time thinking about.

Catman, one of the reasons this forum was started in the first place is because its first group of members wanted accountable, responsive admins and were tired of hanging out at forums that had either absentee or corrupt admins. What I'm trying to say is that if problems arise, we intend to be on that shit pronto!

Also, you just gave me an idea that I will soon post in Site Announcements. Thanks :D

There are some awful forums on the net where all sorts of abuse is tolerated just for the traffic..In the Forumotion directory the one at number one is UK based where i used to be a member and eventually left due it's promotion of far right terror....A nasty racist and homophobic site which is best left to the hate mongers imo since Forumotion don't seem to have a problem with it even though it breaches their guidelines.
