Family Research Council To Hold 'Ex-Gay Pride Month' Dinner

The Family Research Council (FRC) is a long time opponent of gay rights and since the rulings against DOMA and Prop 8, they’ve been steadfast in getting their agenda heard.  FRC plans to organize its first annual “Ex-Gay Pride Month” dinner in an attempt to promote “ex-gay” rights. The event is scheduled for the end of July and Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) has been extended an invitation as an honorable attendee.

The FRC also launched two new groups — Voice of the Voiceless, and Equality and Justice For All — to promote the proposed July 31 “Ex-Gay Pride Month.

“This will be a historic day for ex-gays across the country as we unite on Capitol Hill to lobby Congress to recognize former homosexuals,” Christopher Doyle, co-founder and president of Voice of the Voiceless, said in a press release. “Now that former homosexuals are a protected class against discrimination in Washington, D.C., this opens up the door for our unique stories to be heard and achievements recognized as we celebrate the First Annual Ex-Gay Pride Month!”

On its website, Voice of the Voiceless describes itself as acting on behalf of homosexuals who have changed their sexual orientation.

“The mission of Voice of the Voiceless is to defend the rights of former homosexuals, individuals with unwanted same-sex attraction and their families,” the website states. “We also support the faith-based community and work actively in the United States to defend the constitutional rights of all Americans to share their views of homosexuality in the public forum.”

Too bad they spelled Bachmann’s name wrong.

Voice of the Voiceless has written letters to President Obama asking that he issue a proclamation recognizing Ex-Gay Pride Month.

  • There is a woman on my facebook who is lesbian and against gay marriage. she was pretty upset about gays being able to marry in california. it was really confusing.

      I’m bisexual & I’ve noticed that within the LGBT community, people have diverse opinions on issues affecting gays, including gay marriage. That’s to be expected since the gay community, like any other group, is not monolithic but composed of different people with unique experiences & wishes. A few months back, Rupert Everett, a gay actor (who acted in ‘my best friend’s wedding) also stated that he didn’t support gay marriage.

      I remember that. He said that he didn’t believe in gay adoption because he felt like kids have a hard enough time in life without having to get teased for that. People went crazy on him but he stood by his comments.

    The voice of those who say they are free from it is JUST AS VALID as the voice of those who embrace it. I’m glad they’re doing it bc I’m tired of the other side CONSTANTLY trying to drown them out. I believe people can be free from whatever they truly WANT to be delivered from. If the ex’ers say they have walked that out or are in the process of walking that out, I validate them. After all my faith teaches that such IS possible. #shrugs jmho

  • I’m delighted for these people if using their faith to suppress their innate homosexuality makes them happy. The problem is the real agenda here: suggesting that homosexuality is “changeable” challenges the idea that gays and lesbians are a protected class, subject to heightened scrutiny in judicial cases. Don’t fool yourself that the hugely powerful Family Research Council would involve themselves with these folks otherwise.
