“Ex-Gay” Leader Claims he’s a victim.
“Ex-gay” advocate Greg Quinlan is one of the latest conservatives to cast himself as a victim, and it has gay activist Wayne Besen steamed.
Quinlan, president of Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays, who says he is an ex-gay, did an interview last month with a Washington, D.C., TV station in which he described “hatred” and “bigotry” directed at ex-gays, who he said deserve protection under hate-crimes laws. He accused Besen, executive director of Truth Wins Out, of saying, “Somebody needs to run Greg over. He needs to be hit with a bus. Somebody should inject him with AIDS.”
Besen’s reply: “The bizarre and defamatory scenario portrayed by Quinlan exists only in his own mind,” he said. “What he said is entirely fabricated and a dishonest and brazen attempt to smear me personally, destroy my reputation, and discredit the good work of Truth Wins Out.”
“It speaks to Quinlan’s character that he lies so easily and simply makes things up. I’d be willing to take a lie detector test to prove my innocence and to show that I’ve never said such vile words. Will Quinlan also take these tests to prove the ‘veracity’ of his calumny? Truth Wins Out is also exploring legal options at this time.”
Honey, there ain’t no such thing as ex-gay, you still prefer to be putting from the rough, ain’t no vajayjay gonna change that, no matter how much self loathing you practice, sister…
