National PTA shuns former homosexuals

From WorldNetDaily:

The National Parent-Teacher Association has refused an ex-homosexual group’s request to exhibit at its annual convention while welcoming a pro-homosexual activist organization – even inviting it to present a workshop.

Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays had its application to exhibit rejected because it supports former homosexuals. The National PTA, however, sought the attendance of Parents, Families and Friends of Gays, a pro-homosexual advocacy group that promotes in same-sex marriage.

With 6 million members, the National PTA is the largest volunteer child advocacy organization in the United States. One of its purposes is "to be inclusive in its efforts to represent and assist all who nurture and educate children."

But problems can be turned into opportunities.

Earlier this month, PFOX won a decision against the Montgomery County School Board in Maryland, halting the implementation of a sex ed curriculum that would have promoted gay religious organizations over ex-gay ministries and traditional religions. The judge, in writing his decision, criticized the curriculum “viewpoint discrimination” by excluding ex-gay material. The school board had also approved materials published by gay advocacy groups that positively portray homosexuality while making negative references to ex-gays.

Hopefully PFOX will be able to find a few clear thinking judges who will help send a message to the PTA as well as other bigots that discrimination is wrong, regardless of who is discriminated against.

I'm glad to be living in a country with increasing outlets for people to seek out who they truly are. Like the Parents and Friends of Ex-Straights and Straights. I think we're definitely moving in the right direction with the new approaches to letting people choose their sexual orientation.

Ironic that you think that's amusing, yet what they are really supporting is just the opposite. Scamming naive people into thinking they are destined to be homosexual, denies them of the freedom to choose.
