You want to "cure" something? Cure THIS.

John brings our attention to a branch of "therapy" that makes Tom Cruise and Scientology look positively rational -- "curing" gays of their gayness.

I'll tell you what -- if these evangelical whackjobs want something to "cure," why don't they try curing stupidity? When they can take a fundamentalist Christian and get him to the point where he can say, "Oh ... so that's how biological evolution works," then I'll be impressed.

The distinction is this - to most of the world, gay is related to personal identity and romantic attraction.

To the evangelical, it's all about how someone acts.

In their tepid little world view, they've "cured" someone if they can use enough pseudo-pavlovian conditioning to make an emotional eunuch out of somebody.

Isn't it funny how fundies just LOVE science -- as long as it's 100 years out of date?
