SILVER SPRING, Md. -- A flier from a group called Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays, or PFOX, has started a controversy in Silver Spring.
The flier was handed out during homeroom to students at Montgomery Blair High School.
News4's Miguel Almaguer reported that gay students at the high school said the group behind it is homophobic.
Once again, any discussion is out of the question. False accusations and name calling are more effective in silencing those who disagree.
The school said it had no choice but to pass it out.
Passing responsiblity is also popular among Godless liberal educators.
PFOX says it reaches out to gay teens offering unconditional love and support to homosexuals who want to become straight.
Promoting a way out of a gay lifestyle, the nonprofit group offers to expose teenagers to "ex-gay" people.
"What we're saying is that, if you have unwanted same-sex attraction -- and there is a difference -- then there are alternatives, and homosexual feelings can be overcome," said Regina Griggs of PFOX.
The one-page handout taken home by hundreds and thrown out by others created a firestorm on campus.
Administrators, faculty and students quickly blasted the group as an anti-gay, homophobic organization.
PFOX claims it's a resource for students.
Avi Edelman, president of the Gay Straight Student Alliance, said that message is a sham.
No Avi Edelman, the only 'sham' is your insistence that homosexuality be celebrated while keeping young people in the dark about how it destroys lives, both spiritually and physically.
Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.
Homosexuality is a symptom of fallen humanity. Paul is describing it as unnatural and unseemly. It has nothing to do with 'love' and it should never be celebrated or embraced as we would not any other deceptive lie or sin!
