Faith-Based Anti-Gay Hate Groups Attack PTA

PTA Rejects Faith-Based Pseudoscience: Christians Attack

PFOX and other faith-based anti-gay groups have organized a hate-mail campaign against the PTA in retaliation for the national Parent-Teacher association's decision to reject the request of the faith-based, pseudoscience-based group PFOX to place to present their propaganda at the PTA's national convention. The group promotes the fraudulent 'ex-gay' reparative therapists and religious groups. Groups joining PFOX in the hate-mail campaign include Concerned Women of America, American Family Association, Reclaim America, and the usual fraudulent 'therapist' such as Warrent Throckmorton have joined in as well. The PFOX request to distribute their propaganda arose from the PTA's request that Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (P-FLAG) be in attendance at the convention.

Calculated Compassion: "The growing prominence of the ex-gay movement is the result of a strategic shift within the Christian Right: the new packaging of an old message. The claim that gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people can be "cured" has more to do with the Right's political objectives and its bitter opposition to equal rights than with genuine caring. This report examines how the Christian Right has adopted the ex-gay movement in response to increasing pressure to soften its homophobic rhetoric."

The Ex-Gay Fraud: "No Bible basis exists for the so called "Ex-Gay" movement that has sprung up in the past 15 years in many denominations and independent religious groups. No scientific basis exists for the 'reparative therapy' to "cure" homosexuals or "deliver" people from their homosexuality. Claims of such cures and deliverance do not hold up under close examination."
--- Dr. Rembert S. Truluck, Author of Steps to Recovery From Bible Abuse

Write a letter of support to the national PTA. Congratulate them for rejecting the fradulent 'ex-gay' progaganda and supporting the work of P-FLAG. Encourage them to continue supporting all children rather than subjecting some of the to the fradulent 'ex-gay' movement and its message of shame and guilt.
