As you no doubt know by now if you have been following this site for a while, there are literally hundreds of Christofascist terrorist organizations in this country that want people to think it is possible to “pray away the gay.” Such pseudo-scientific, anti-Christian groups as Exodus (whose one-time leader John Paulk was spotted at Mister P’s, a Washington, DC gay bar, hitting on men almost three years after appearing in a major “ex-gay” ad campaign) spread the complete and total lie that through more prayer, gay people can be made to go against their God-given, God-intended nature and desire the opposite sex. I thoroughly destroyed this argument in October 2004 when I released “How to Out-Argue a Fundamentalist” here on this site, but today’s news provides even yet more proof that this “pray away the gay” notion is semi-solid male-cow excrement.
The results of a ten-year, $2.5 million study that will be published in next week’s American Heart Journal prove that prayer has absolutely no power to help people overcome medical conditions, and in fact can even make matters worse. Granted, this study was only conducted on heart patients, but the implications for the so-called “ex-gay” liars cannot possibly be any more obvious. I mean, the vast majority of Wacko Satanic Anti-American Righties hold the insane notion that being gay is some kind of mental or emotional illness, so one would hope that a study proving that prayer doesn’t cure illnesses would cause them to realize that their “ex-gay” efforts are in vain.
Now you and I well know exactly what is going to happen. Wacko Satanic Anti-American Righties have been hard at work for decades, crafting for themselves a fantasy world that the light of truth cannot penetrate. They have done such a complete job of insulating themselves against reality that, to them, it will be like this study was never done. Despite the randomized, double-blinded nature of this study (a procedure considered to be “the gold standard for scientific proof” to quote the above-linked Los Angeles Times article), they will simply brush it off and spout bullshit about some supposed “anti-‘Christian’ bias” of the researchers — that’s just what they do.
At the same time, they will keep violating God’s Eighth Commandment by spreading the same old lies about God’s gay and lesbian children. Even though it has now been proven that this “pray away the gay” idea is total bullshit, they will no doubt keep pushing this anti-Christian notion. All they will be doing is simply cementing their eternal place in Hell with Satan, who is the true inspiration behind their “ex-gay” beliefs.
I’m off to southeastern Kentucky for the morning, then back up to Pennsylvania for Monday. Don’t forget to set your clocks forward one hour tomorrow — yes, even those of you in most of Indiana this time.
