Family Research Council Heralds' 'Ex-Gay Pride Month' with Launch of Two New Hate Organizations


Hate group Family Research Council is planning a dinner and reception to announce two new 'ex-gay' rights organizations and a line-up of familiar anti-gay wingnuts has been invited to speak, the HuffPost reports:

The event is scheduled for the end of July, just weeks after the Supreme Court's landmark rulings in favor of gay rights. Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) has been extended an invitation as an honorable attendee.

The Family Research Council's legislative affiliate, FRC Action, will officially launch two new ex-gay rights organizations, Voice of the Voiceless and Equality and Justice For All, during the dinner in Washington, D.C., on July 31.

"Come celebrate the lives of former homosexuals and hear about their unique stories and achievements!" reads the invitation.

In addition to Bachman, the Heritage Foundation's Jim DeMint, the Liberty Counsel's Matthew Staver and Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.) -- who on Friday introduced a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage -- have all been invited to speak.

  1. a lovely time indeed, celebrating family and friends that choose hate over love and understanding.


    will Rick Warren make an appearance championing his son who, through death i suppose, could be considered an "ex-gay"?

    anyone and everyone who attends this can be happy knowing they've cemented their place, in digitally-recorded history, as embarrassments to human dignity.

  2. A. They are hardly voiceless
    B. Equality and Justice for All (except them damn faggots.)

    Doesn't the irony burn at all?

  3. Gurl please! You KNOW this gathering will be nothing more than a cruising and pick-up event for these closeted gays!

    Did you notice on the invitation that Michele Bachmann is invited as a speaker? I bet miss Marcus can't wait to go and mingle will all the "ex-gays"! This is so rich it has to be fattening! lol!

  4. Will Marcus (Lady Bird) Bachman be sharing his story?

  5. um. They advertise unconfirmed "invited" speakers? And people are going to pay money? Wow, why don't they just call it self-hating idiot night?

  6. So, they basically have 3 confirmed guest speakers for an event that takes place less than a month from now. So sad. Maybe Alan Chambers and John Paulk are available.

  8. Lying liars who lie eternally! I wonder if Miss Marcus will de-louse her moo-moo-moo for the event. The clutch and matching espadrilles are just too clever to leave in the walk-in...(or is that a sashay-in?)

  10. Sounds like a wonderful event to go "get some". Wouldn't that make for good PR?

  11. Isn't Tim Tebow invited? Or is he marrying his boyfriend that day?

  12. It's interesting just how far people will go for publicity and money. I don't think anyone cares what any of this group has to say beyond the people monitoring them and themselves. They are self perpetuating money collectors and that's about it. They are generating "scandal" and sensationalizing themselves for the sole purpose of media attention and making money. If all gay people became ex-gay they would cease to exist, and they are very aware of that.

  13. I'm sorry, an "ex-gay" rights organization? If you're ex-gay then you're straight. What "rights" do ex-gays (straights) need exactly?

  14. Another event where closet-cases can hook-up and exchange phone numbers.

  15. "First Annual"?!??! That alone is a sin and they should all give themselves 50 lashes. It's the inaugural. Perhaps the first. Likely the last. But not first ANNUAL. Grrrr.

  16. I'm just trying to understand how an "ex-gay" person is being oppressed by teh gays...

    They've basically gone back into the closet, changed their behavior and pretend to really, really, no reallly like girls now, and assert their "heterosexual" privilege (they can marry a woman in all 50 states).

    About all we do is point out that they're still totally gay -- and miserable (to use Alec Baldwin's phraseology) toxic queens for continually trying to undermine everyone else's civil rights... and somehow, THEY need two new civil rights organizations? WTF

  17. "Voice of the Voiceless" LOL

    Posted by: MARCUS BACHMANN | Jul 2, 2013 3:47:00 PM

  18. I'm sure they'll have easily 12-15 people in attendance. Maybe even 1 or 2 ex-gays.

  19. LOLz

  20. Why doesn't this flock of people go get jobs where they might contribute to society?

    Posted by: Esther Blodgett | Jul 2, 2013 4:16:07 PM

  21. Pathetic. How can those people have so much hate in their lives?

    Posted by: Matt26 | Jul 2, 2013 5:03:12 PM

  22. So, the way you make an ex-gay is to remove the vocal chords? Who knew? I would have thought the removal was lower down on the anatomy, but maybe those are gone too.

  23. Is an ex-gay a straight ?
    or have they found a new place for them like Limbo ?
    But that was found to be a fantasy also.

    Posted by: JackFknTwist | Jul 2, 2013 6:05:38 PM

  24. I'm setting up an organization for ex-straights.
    Anyone interested ?

    Posted by: JackFknTwist | Jul 2, 2013 6:14:17 PM

  25. @JackFknTwist, it would be hilarious to have an "ex-straight" convention at the same place and time. I think that would get better attendance than the "ex-gay" one, since there are many gay men who identified as straight before coming out.

    One big difference though is that when someone who identified as straight comes out they rarely have either rage or self-righteousness against straight people that the "ex-gays" do against gays. It really is a mystery why anyone who has been "cured" of their homosexuality continues to identify as "ex-gay" instead of just being straight and going about their business.

    Oh. That's right. They're just pawns in a political game being played by the Religious Right. And WTF is up with listing people who have been invited but apparently haven't confirmed on the invitation? I'll really have to give that a try at my next party: send invites to Chris Evans, Tom Hardy, & Henry Cavill, then list their name on the invite as if they'll actually BE there. GENIUS!

    I suspect this event would be a trip to attend, if you have a taste for dark comedy and desperation. The only utensils at dinner will be plastic sporks since letting ex-gays have sharp objects isn't a good idea. BYOKleenex.
