Jews Offering New Alternatives to Homosexuality (JONAH) is run by convicted felon Arthur Abba Goldberg and Elaine Berk. Both have out gay sons, yet they run a Jewish organization to heal people of their gayness? They don’t sound like very credible witnesses to change.
In this sad video, you will witness how these pathetic con artists exploit a lonely, gay old man who has no friends. Of course he doesn’t have friends — because he spent his entire life in the closet having anonymous sex at parks. Had he come out and felt proud of his sexual orientation, he wouldn’t be in the sad predicament that he is in.
Is this poster boy the best that JONAH could come up with? And if JONAH is so successful, why are they featuring a neurotic, insecure Catholic man instead of a Jew? I suppose they could not find one.
As usual, JONAH traffics in stereotypes, misinformation and outright lies. There is no evidence that a bad childhood causes homosexuality or that gay kids cower at home as children by the window. Abba Godlberg (pictured right) and Berk are simply making things up or quoting quacks with no credibility. Nothing they say is backed by any credible medical or mental health organization.
When Berk speaks of the “gay genome” she displays appalling ignorance and twists science to fit her propaganda model. In fact, every credible scientist will tell you that homosexuality is genetically and biologically influenced.
In Part II, the “ex-gay” is sent to the gym by his therapist. This is rich because this is what Gollberg had to say about gay men and the gym:
“By the way, did you notice that a lot of gays who remain in the gay lifestyle also do a lot of body building,” said Goldberg. “They will be in the gym a lot trying to build up their pecs…Because they have these body image issues and don’t feel they are masculine enough.”
So in his propaganda video he sends the guy to the gym? These people lie so much they can’t remember what they said the day before. And how about how incredibly stupid they made the heterosexual body builders sound? It was a cartoon of masculinity!
JONAH and reparative therapy is a total joke. This is why it should be banned for minors across the nation. Creeps like Berk and Goldberg are phonies who are pretending to be experts on an issue they know virtually nothing about. This is just Goldberg’s latest con and it shows by this amateurish video that confuses stereotypes with science.
While the propaganda video was good entertainment, this is what really goes on inside of JONAH and the “counselors” they affiliate with:
