Robert Gagnon, allied to the anti-gay organization, the National Organization for Marriage’s (NOM), said that students should treat a pro-LGBT school group like the Ku Klux Klan or Nazi skinhead groups.
Gagnon ranted against Alan Chambers, head of the Ex-Gay group Exodus International, for suggesting that students to attend Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) group meetings in their schools.
GSA is a group which aims to make schools safer for LGBT students and help improve their academic performance.
Gagnon, who is himself an outspoken advocate of Ex-Gay ‘therapy’ – a discredited ‘treatment’ seeking to convert gays into straight, said GSA is like the Ku Klux Klan, Nazi skinheads, or ‘prostitutes for Christ’.
Equality Matters, a US media gay campaign group revealed that Gangon wrote on his Facebook page: ‘More ridiculousness by Alan Chambers of Exodus (will it ever end?): Christian young people should respond to a "gay-straight alliance" in public school by going to such meetings "not to speak but to serve and listen and to offer to help, finding common ground”’.
‘There is no "speaking the truth in love" here (Eph 4:15). So if there is a "polyamory appreciation" group or "prostitutes for Christ" group or Ku Klux Klan / Nazi Skinhead group of "women abusers advocacy society" at a public school, Christian students should go to such meetings, not speak, but serve and find common ground?
‘How can sane evangelical Christians support any longer any organization led by Alan Chambers?
‘The man has become as "useful" to homosexualist advocacy as naive Western leftists of the 1920s to 1950s who extolled the virtues of Leninist and Stalinist Russia were useful to these dictatorial regimes’.
Gangon has helped to found the new ex-gay splinter group called the Restored Hope Network.
Restored Hope broke away from Exodus International when that group’s president, Chambers, admitted that there is no ‘cure’ for homosexuality and suggested that it wasn’t incompatible with Christianity.
American medical and scientific organizations consider Ex-Gay ‘therapy’ as a pseudo-scientific harmful methodology with no proven success.
Human Rights advocates also point out that Ex-Gay ‘therapy’ may cause social harm by disseminating inaccurate views about sexual orientation.
