Ex-Gay Leader Claims ‘Homofascism’ Threatens Liberty

GregQuinlanHot on the heels of the New York Times‘ article on “ex-gay” activists feeling discriminated against, Greg Quinlan, leader of the “ex-gay” group PFOX (Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays) has penned an op-ed at the right wing LifeSiteNews in which he warns readers of “homofascism”.

He bases his claims on recent victories over religion-based “reparative therapies” that “cure” gay people, like the California law prohibiting shrinks from using the “ex-gay” procedure on minors.

From Quinlan’s op-ed, via ThinkProgress:

The culture war is not slowing down; it’s just beginning to gain steam as gay organizations turn to anti-heterosexual legislation, mandatory public approval of sodomy, federal funding of gay youth activist organizations and homosexual initiatives, required government training against “homophobia,” “heterosexism,” and “transphobia,” etc., etc. This is more than a culture war; it is a war for our very own freedoms—a war for the character and future of our nation.

Homofascism will soon be, if it is not already, the greatest threat to our individual liberties in this country. So-called equality marriage is just the beginning.

He sure has a flair for the dramatic, huh?

    his hysteria makes perfect psychological sense – misery loves company.

    the more out and proud people there are, the more our non-gay allies embrace us, the more young LGBT people come out and claim their own lives….well, it just makes the lives of ex-gays so much sadder.

    everyone else moves on and enjoys life and they can’t let themselves.

    this is why they’re angry. they dont’ want to be reminded of all the joys they’ll never know.

    @ MARKROCKS — LOL I just came here to post that: DRAMA QUEEN.

    What I hate is this meme that we are trying to force people to approve of us, i.e. “mandatory public approval of sodomy”.

    NO. We are not asking for approval. We are simply DEMANDING EQUALITY.

    Besides, being gay is a lot more than sodomy (I’m married, trust me, there’s not as much sodomy as I’d like). And of course straight people have TONS of sodomy. When is the amendment coming to ban straight couples who like teh buttsekz from marrying?

    and if ya wanna get BIBLICAL, Sodomy is, scripturally, the hoarding of wealth and provisions – selfishly refusing to give all that you have to those who are without.

    the real sodomites of america are, in fact, the GOP.

    I take delight in his misery, a bit of schadenfreude, with the emphasis on the freude (joy) not the schaden (shameful). Fascism always puts me in a German mood.

    Anyway, with the advent of the internet and widespread access to it, there will be such an increase in sophistication and education that the silly people will lose their battles to keep everyone else in line. There’s the real source of his pain.

    @Rick: LOL That was the first thing I thought of, too.


    “required government training against ‘homophobia,’ ‘heterosexism,’ and ‘transphobia,’ etc.”

    At least he got something right, especially with “etc.” Diversity training should be required for all.

    @MARKROCKS Judging by the comments by this self-loathing reprobate, I’d say he’s more of a Drama Empress. Queen just cannot contain the over-the-top hysteria of Miss Ex-Gay Thing.
