Melissa Fryrear, the clownish so-called ex-lesbian from Focus on the Family who cakes on make-up, pretends to have crushes on red headed men (although we’ve never had a report of an actual date) and admits that she is “not the sharpest knife in the drawer,” has changed the term “ex-gay” to “post gay” in Focus on the Family’s latest newsletter.
In the letter, she describes the process of becoming post-gay:
“Thus, for any feeling, thought, belief, identity, behavior or action that is not characteristic of and resembling of the Person of Jesus Christ, God’s intention is to change it so that it is.” (sounds like brainwashing)
Of course, Fryrear admits that her ministry has the potential to cause great damage, saying, “It is a process – often a very long, difficult and painful process.”
Actually, it is a destructive dead end. The people who throw their money at charlatans like Fryrear do go through the painful process described, only to find that there is no light at the end of the tunnel. This exacerbates the pain and can lead to depression and self-destructive behavior.
I’m not sure why loneliness, pain, celibacy, depression and thoughts of suicide qualify as “post-gay.”
