The following excerpt is from the article “Ex-Gay Awareness Event Gathers Former Homosexuals to Proclaim Sexual Self-Determination Freedom” written by Tyler O’Neil and published on the Christian Post website: “WASHINGTON – Following the June closing of Exodus International, other groups working with persons struggling with unwanted same-sex attraction are taking up the ex-gay banner, including Voice of the Voiceless, which hosted Monday the First Annual Ex-Gay Awareness Dinner and Reception that attracted about 60 Christian leaders and ex-gay individuals.”
“‘When gays come out of the closet they are celebrated in the movies and on TV, when an ex-gay tells his story, he’s mocked, ridiculed, defamed – and ask Trace McNutt, he gets death threats,’ Christopher Doyle, co-founder and president of ex-gay group Voice of the Voiceless, explained. He called for the movement to go on the offensive with the message that people can determine their sexual identity.” Read the rest of this entry →

The following excerpts are from the blog “The New Pharisee 3” on Andrew Comiskey’s website: “…I am witnessing a new Pharisaic tendency in Christian spokespeople for ‘GLBT’ (etc.) communities. Instead of surrendering the sexually broken ‘selves’ to Jesus, these ones make huge efforts to justify their homosexuality. Though some claim orthodoxy (no sex outside of marriage), they nevertheless seek to integrate the gay self and ‘celebrate the grace of God in homosexual terms.’”
“Precepts of the new Pharisee include: Exempting themselves from a theological anthropology that defines humanity as made in God’s image as male and female. … Jesus chooses to not effect much, if any, change of their sexual inclinations. … A new narrative in which one has little if any psychological brokenness undergirding their SSA. … Scandalizing reparative therapy. …”

The initial report “University LGBTQ Resource Centers in Virginia Engaging in Viewpoint Discrimination” published by Voice of the Voiceless (VoV) is reprinted in its entirety. Links to audio recordings are available on the VoV website: As a part of September’s Ex-Gay Awareness Month, Voice of the Voiceless (VoV) went undercover into seven of Virginia’s fifteen state universities to document a variety of misconduct among publicly-funded employees, including medically-inaccurate advice, view point discrimination, and biased counseling for students who experience unwanted homosexual feelings. The investigation, which occurred over a 2 ½ week period in September, involved two former homosexuals posing as graduate students seeking anonymous counseling for unwanted homosexual feelings at university resource centers for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or questioning (LGBTQ) students.

The following blog “Who Really Stays Pure?” on Joe Dallas’s website: “Sexual purity for the Christian is a mandate, goal and achievement. It’s a mandate because it’s expected by God and reasonably so; it’s a goal in that we strive towards it, and an achievement when we both attain and then maintain it. It’s also a way of being and living that runs contrary to so much of what we’re exposed to daily.”
“The fact that we’re sexual creatures with natural responses can be enough of a struggle, but add to that the ongoing stimulation of billboards, immodestly dressed women and men, suggestive content on television ads and countless other stimulants, and the goal of a pure mind and body can seem like Quixote’s Impossible Dream – lofty, but virtually unreachable.” Read the rest of this entry →

“The investigation was conducted by VoV over several weeks this month, and had two former homosexuals pose as graduate students seeking ‘anonymous counseling for unwanted homosexual feelings at university resource centers.’” Read the rest of this entry →

The following excerpts are from Andy Comisky’s article “New Pharasee 2” on his blog: … “Could it be that the enemy of our souls has blinded our eyes to the Mercy that is there for us? Perhaps the reason that we cling to dehumanizing attitudes and behaviors is because we do not believe that there is anything for us in their place.”
“How else can you explain the irrational power at work in the weaknesses of those who insist that the ‘gay self’ or any other number of ‘selves’ is their deepest, truest expression? Cut off from Mercy, these ones construct fortresses to defend them from the threat of non-being. Read the rest of this entry →
