The Washington Blade reported today that conservative author Ann Coulter told HLN’s Joy Behar last night that she thinks in some cases “ex-gay” therapy works. Coulter’s controversial comments came when she brought up that one of her fans “found God,” and “now he’s not gay anymore.” Coulter went on to explain:
“There are some people… maybe they weren’t really gay to begin with, maybe they were molested as children. There are people that go that way.”
Clearly, Coulter is a loudmouth headline-seeking opportunist, exploiting this issue to advance her career. She lacks about as much evidence as she does integrity, so we don’t take anything she says seriously. Unfortunately, some of her dim-witted followers may believe what she says to be true, and that’s why she’s dangerous. After all. riling up rubes is her business model and she’s pretty good at it.
Coulter also told Behar that she thought the military should be comprised of only heterosexual males.
“I not only not want open gays in the military, I don’t want open girls in the military.”
Her comments brought a swift rebuke by the Log Cabin Republicans.
“Ann Coulter is not a serious part of the conservative movement – her positions are a throwback and do more harm than anything else,” R. Clarke Cooper, Executive Director of Log Cabin Republicans told the Blade.
If only Cooper’s comments were true. Sadly, she does speak for a great many conservatives who buy her idiotic books and hang on her every word.
