"Ex-Gay" Donnie Davies Speaks about "The Bible Says" Video
For those of you who were transfixed by the bizarre "The Bible Says" video which appeared on this site the other day (and inspired more comments more quickly than almost anything I have ever posted) and was later taken down by YouTube, Dan Savage at Slog has done some great work that still leaves us wondering, is this guy for real?
By the way, you can still view the original video here...
Via Dan come these two new videos, as well as the text of an IM session between Seattle's Laurence Ballard and Davies. Ballard contacted Savage after IMing with the man who holds the AIM name PastorDavies, which is listed on the LoveGodsWay website.
The video on the left appeared yesterday, following the controversy and the rapid viral spread of the Donnie Davies "The Bible Says" video .
In the video, Davies talks about the video and thanks people at YouTube and MySpace, as well as Andrew Sullivan, whom he calls a "great Christian man". He thanks Sullivan for condemning YouTube's removal of the video. Davies also talks about being an ex-gay.
The video on the right has been on YouTube since Monday. In it Donnie Davies welcomes people to his ex-gay ministries and introduces his videos.
Real or hoax? Savage thinks it's for real. The debate rages on.
UPDATE: Is Donnie Davies really actor/musician/improv performer Todd Quillen?
