I did my usual yelling at the TV, then I fired ABC a little email:
Your last program "The Toughest Call" on ex-gays/reparative therapy was, to put it bluntly, ridiculous. I noticed you were quick to point out the professional organizations that came out *against* therapy for homosexuality (e.g. the APA), but conveniently left out Dr. Robert Spitzer's name, the psychiatrist who famously reversed his own position on this issue.
Funny...those screaming for freedom to *live* a gay lifestyle seem to get awfully upset when people use that same freedom to *leave* it.
I feel like I need a literary shower. Dante feels right about now:
The wasteland was a dry expanse of sand,
thick, burning sand, no different than the kind
that Cato's feet packed down in other times.
O just revenge of God! How awesomely
you should be feared by everyone who reads
these truths that were revealed to my own eyes!
Many separate herds of naked souls I saw,
all weeping desperately; it seemed each group
had been assigned a different penalty;
some souls were stretched out flat upon their backs,
others were crouching there all tightly hunched,
some wandered, never stopping, round and round.
The three herds: the Blasphemers, the Usurers, and the Sodomites.
