So, Mike, let me give you a timeline for when I’ll realize that hate doesn’t come from you:Thanks Timothy. Thank you for pointing out exactly what Exodus does, all the while saying they love us. Any wonder I see connections between Dobson and his parenting ideas and Exodus and the way they "love us"?
When you stop spreading malicious lies such as all gay people were molested or had a poor relationship with their same-sex parent, that gay people do not have committed monogamous loving long-term relationships, and the myriad myths you propagate about the sex lives and “health risks” of all gay people. When you stop seeking to enact laws that would deny rights to gay couples that are taken for granted by straight couples, take away gay people’s children, and – in some states – incarcerate gay people for expressing their love to their partner sexually. And finally, Mike, when you stop lying to gay people about the methods, reach, failure rates, and agenda of the Exodus International.
Once you’ve done that, Mike, get right back to us and we’ll let you know whether you’ve convinced us that hate doesn’t come from you. In the meanwhile, you'll understand why I think that your "love the sinner, but destroy his life at every opportunity in every way" type of message is more likely to result in vandalism than in clean-up.
