I think it goes without saying that many young people struggle with their sexuality. That struggle requires compassion and, in some cases, professional counseling and therapy. (I sound like Dr. Phil, but, hey, it's accurate.)
But taxpayer-funded gay-transvestite student centers?
In response to an undercover investigation, Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays is urging the governor and legislature of Virginia to stop funding gay-transvestite centers at Virginia's public universities because they use the money to indoctrinate youth into changing their religion to gay-affirming faiths and actively seek to discredit the ex-gay community.
'Virginia taxpayers shouldn't be forced to fund hatred and discrimination against ex-gays and people of faith,' said Regina Griggs, executive director of PFOX. 'These biased and discriminatory lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender/questioning centers hide ex-gay resources and insist that students adopt a 'gay-only' mentality that rejects those who have changed their orientation from gay to straight while celebrating those who have changed their gender identity. PFOX provides ex-gay brochures to many Virginia state universities with LGBTQ centers, yet the investigation shows that the centers refuse to make ex-gay resources readily available to students. PFOX's brochures urge tolerance for the ex-gay community, help students to prevent bullying at their schools, and explain gender identity confusion and unwanted same-sex attractions.'....
'Virginia's LGBTQ Centers deny that change is possible, and therefore deny that ex-gays exist,' said Griggs. 'They believe in exclusion, censorship, and allowing only one side of the story to be told. Virginia taxpayers don't want their money funding non-educational activities that endanger youth, treat ex-gay minorities as outcasts, and promote government-approved religions.'
Welcome to the "new normal."
