In June I penned a column that predicted that so-called "ex-gay" programs would crumble from internal rot. In the months since, the decline of these "pray away the gay" organizations has only accelerated.
f the cable networks insist on setting the stage for those who tell whoppers, such as the Family Research Council's Tony Perkins, the least they can do is carve out time the following evening to correct the mistruths.

Pastor Fred Phelps led the congregation that gained notoriety in recent years for picketing the funerals of soldiers who died in Iraq and Afghanistan. He spoke with me about hell, homosexuality, and the Supreme Court.

By now you know about Dr. George Rekers, the Baptist minister who was paid $87,000 by the State of Florida to be an anti-gay "expert witness" against gay adoption. How did he spend the money? By hiring a boy 40 years younger to go on a 10-day trip through Europe.
