It seems to me that this article, while well written, is very ethnocentric viz. American ideals are superior to others. It might be argued that in the case of Uganda, American evangelicals tainted the water so to speak. However, the ex-gay view of homosexuality is common in most traditional/non-western cultures. To prescribe blame to evangelicals is grossly off the mark, and to accuse traditional cultures (Asia, Africa, etc.) of moral inferiority is slightly close-minded.

I don't know about anyone else, but I have no doubt Toscano is lying and he made that abundantly clear when he threw the friends of Bryce Faulker under the bus. Otherwise he would have seen about doing away with the ex-gay movement, instead of profiting from it with his Marvin Homo No Mo act.

Jerry, why would Peterson lie about having a partner? Doing do would infer still being wrapped up in the ideology of the ex-gay movement. All you have to do is google his name and you will find out that is not the case. Next, let's not forget the sisters who have found their way out of ex-gay ways. After 10 years I finally came out for good and am now learning how to be a strong person - who is queer. Much life to all who come through that particular pain.

The dogma of most Christian religions is nothing compared to the dogma of Muslim extremists who still stone homosexuals to death! Being gay in Muslim countries is completely forbidden! When is the liberal left wing going to acknowledge this fact and start speaking out about it instead of always focusing on the mostly peaceful actions of Christian groups?

It breaks my heart when the right and the left choose to drive the wedge of division deeper and deeper by reporting only on the extreme. Let's talk about what we all have in common like a desire to have a relationship with our heavenly father and wether your gay or straight its sin that seperates us from God. I still struggle with same sex attractions but out of the lifestyle for 5years. Jesus is Lord of my life, not my sexuality.The church has let the gay community down,be reconciled to Christ

Interesting the one guy still lives with a partner so says the article. Makes me wonder about him lying and still being gay.Hiding behind a curtain and downing what he really is.

Amazing. I chose to do DIY reparative therapy in the absence of NARTH in the UK with the encouragement of my parents aged 17. I developed even lower self esteem than I had had before, developed drug problems and started having occasional unprotected sex. It was almost like self harm in my head. At 22 I was diagnosed HIV+. I can honestly say if my family had bee supportive of my sexual preferences, I doubt I would have developed problems with drug use and certainly woudn;t have had unsafe sex.
