The ex-gay faction is again on the front line as the Ugandan government plan to introduce legislation that will extend their already draconian laws against homosexuality to include execution. To support the bill, ex-gay ‘authorities’ from the US have been quoted.
The ex-gay movement believe that homosexuality is a choice, and that one can chose to be heterosexual if ones tries. This nonsense is used to sell much product, and to validate prejudice. And it is based on belief and not fact. The subject of the ex-gay movement came under the scrutiny of Rebel Scum in August.

Rachel Maddow did an excellent job of taking down an ex-gay author Richard Cohen, whose work had been quoted as evidence in support of the Ugandan bill.
