I imagine this has been posted everywhere, but I am putting it up on my account too. This is so wrong!

ZOMG A PUBLIC POST - Made public by popular demand.

Zach, a sixteen year old from Tennessee made the mistake of coming out to his parents. Now he is being forced to attend a Fundamentalist brainwashing summer camp for gay kids in Memphis. This 16 year old attendee is writing a blog from the camp (Verbotten!), and he's none too pleased. He says his parents lied to him and it's worse than boot camp. Please read this before they make him take it down. As you read it; imagine you are sixteen again going through this.

This is the actual address to his blog: http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendID=7428306&blogID=28610354&Mytoken=20050610204542

Everone should check this mess out!

-----------------


These people are sick. There's no way around it. They are "treating" being gay with a bizarre, off-shoot 12 step, lock down facility. As the kid says: "What is with these people...? Honestly.. how could you support a program like this? If I do come out straight I'll be so mentally unstable and depressed it wont matter.. I'll be back in therapy again. This is not good-- "

Taken from nagisa_kaworu.

The kid is being treated so horribly that he says he's contemplating suicide. It's really fucked up. Give him some support!

This blog documents the protest and includes an interesting quote:

"I would rather you commit suicide than have you leave Love In Action wanting to return to the gay lifestyle. In a physical death you could still have a spiritual resurrection; whereas, returning to homosexuality you are yielding yourself to a spiritual death from which there is no recovery." --The Final Indoctrination from John Smid, Director, Love In Action (LIA)

ETA:

Feel free to link or repost. Several people asked, so I've made this a rare public entry.

I think I have either heard this story before or have seen a similar one but either way this is sick! It is disgusting how close-minded some people STILL are...we are in the 20th century. Get over it! Sorry about that now I'm ranting again. My name is Kitty by the way and I found your blog on aff.net. I write there too! Nice to meet ya!

Do you maintain Eternity of Dreams?

There was a link there from youtube about getting photos. I'd love that but unfortunately that page seems to permanently stall my browser whenever I try to load it. I end up having to force quit the Net. Can you send me the links to the photos seperate? Do you have a Flickr account?

I'm the host in the Wonka-like gear from the Cosplay Masquerade btw; mask and purple latex skirt. Pleased to meet you. The vide is terrific. I posted it to yaoicon_chat.
