“Ex-Gays” Join Kim Davis Supporters

A man waving a sign with the names of three of the most vile “ex-gay” activists in the nation has recruited young boys to join him in supporting Kim Davis by screaming damnation over a bullhorn outside the courthouse where Davis and her deputy clerks have just arrived for their contempt of court hearing.

  • AtticusP

    Blatant child abuse.

    • Herald

      MY first thought , “Those poor kids!”

      • Goodboy

        Yeah, I’m sure they have no understanding of it or just how fucked up these crazy twats are. They understand it like the Westboro kids kind of way.

    • GC

      And they have the chutzpah to claim that “homosexuals” rely on “recruiting” children! Projection much? https://keithwilsoncounseling.files.wordpress.com/2014/02/projection.jpg

      • Goodboy

        It’s all fantasy brought to by people that will believe anything as long as it supports their sincerely held hate. Reality is what you see there.

      • rextrek1

        like these kids KNOW what Sodomy is??? ……???

        • Goodboy

          Isn’t Sodomy anal and oral sex?

          • rextrek1

            yes – both

          • rextrek1

            and performed by both hetero and gays

          • GC

            …and folks who are bi/pan/omnisexual, fluid, and of other labels (or none).

            Strange how we don’t hear about the Good Christian male-female couples who are doing it!

          • Shy Guy

            Also bestiality, apparently.

            I always wondered why Sodom got all the credit. Nobody talks about Gomorrahy, though to my surprise Wiktionary actually has a definition for it:
            https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Gomorrahy

            Sodom got the better deal IMHO. (Though they can keep the beasts!)

        • GC

          Sodomy is being greedy and inhospitable. (Ezekiel 16:49)

          • Steverino

            Yep. In fact, Ezekiel 16:49 describes Donald Trump and his ilk perfectly.

          • GC

            Trump (with a silent “T”) is actually a very appropriate face of the Republican Party, the political party of “I’ve got mine, screw you!”

        • Câl

          You just have to hope that they don’t. But with the depravity of some of the loudest anti-gays as we have seen, they might have experience, and not of the consensual kind.

  • bkmn

    Be careful ex-gay morons. Her supporters are not above giving you a shank.

  • safari2bongaloo

    An ex-gay recruiting?

  • noni

    Ex Gays, Log Cabin, and GoProud the new WestBoro Baptist Church.

  • bryan

    There are more ex christians than ‘ex gays’. And the difference is that the ex christians have really given up a chosen lifestyle.

    • Rebecca Gardner

      Yup! I became an atheist at age 14. I was very very sickly as a child and could not attend catechism (a Latin word meaning brain washing) classes so the Roman Catholic Church provided me with one on one time with Sister Victoria. Being a class of one we had truly amazing dialog but after two years I realized that the answer to every one of my questions was “faith” and that they were all making it up as they went along. So I chose to not adopt the lifestyle forced upon me by my mom.

      • John30013

        Interesting. Age 14 is about when I decided that religion was bunk and I became an atheist too. My twin brother, with whom I had never discussed these ideas, came to the identical conclusion around the same time.

        Edit: my parents were (Christian) “believers”, but not members of any organized religious denomination. They exposed us to the Bible, but we didn’t attend church and–importantly–we didn’t celebrate any of the “Christian” holidays. (My parents actually followed the “Worldwide Church of God”, if you remember that, which preached [correctly] that the “Christian” holidays were actually appropriated pagan holidays/festivals and therefore were not truly “Christian”. They also believed that, following the death of Christ, God has taken a hands-off approach to the world, and would continue to do so until the Second Coming. And that while there is a Heaven and a Hell, people wouldn’t be consigned to one or the other until the Judgment of the Second Coming.)

        • GC

          Great minds… 🙂

          Seriously, I remember reading something about how some types of neurological “wiring” render people more or less prone to believing in religion god(s).

          (Worth noting: Ethical Culture describes itself as a religion, yet never bothers to mention a god. Humanistic Judaism similarly doesn’t bother with a god. Many Unitarian Universalist congregations have openly atheist and agnostic members as well as theists.)

        • HanyBaal

          I wish I were that smart at that age. It took me till mid thirties to abandon Islam, and fully understand the absurdity of punishing thought crimes.

          • GC

            Religions (that survive) tend to have strong, well-developed “immune systems” protecting their human hosts from “dangerous” competing ideas. (For example, that the Devil is capable of unlimited trickery, even orchestrating worldwide conspiracies for centuries — and that’s supposed to be more plausible than the facts of the world simply contradicting the religious teaching! “Reality has a well-known liberal bias.”)

            Dr. Stephen Uhl (former Catholic priest turned atheist and psychologist) writes in his book (with confusing multiple titles, but otherwise good) that we learn at different rates, and should be patient with people who unlearn at different rates.

          • John30013

            In your defense, I’ll bet you were much more highly indoctrinated in Islam when you were growing up than I ever was in Christianity.

            I’m glad you found your way to the light, though :-).

            Recognizing (naming) my gayness was a huge part of my conversion to atheism. Knowing in my heart that I was a good person and not what Christianity said I was made me question the entire foundation of that religion (and, in fact, all religions).

      • 2karmanot

        I left the ‘faithful’ around the age of nine, when after a conversation with the sister’s Mary. I asked if the Holy Muther who ascended into Heaven was subject to the laws of gravity. Would she get captured by Pluto? The answer: some mysteries must be taken on faith.

    • vorpal

      Ex-Christian here, and damn proud of managing to extricate myself from that disgusting, reprobate, chosen lifestyle into which I was recruited from a young age by having my mind perverted and twisted by trusted family members and authority figures. (Christians must recruit, since Christian is not an inborn trait!)

      Of course, I just call myself an atheist most of the time, unlike these “ex-gays” who seem to – oddly enough – never refer to themselves as heterosexual.

      And LOL, unlike them, I don’t ever suffer a single Christian urge, unwanted or otherwise!

      • 2guysnamedjoe

        Unnamed sources report that you’ve been seen hanging out in Christian bars near DuPont Circle.

        • vorpal

          I am proselytizing for Ganymede!

      • Mark

        Last time I had a Christian urge was because he was a hot muscled number and his name was Christian. It was heavenly!

      • Steverino

        Speaking of religion and ex-es, I wonder if either Bruce Willis or Ashton Kutcher ever have a Demi-urge?

        *ba-dum, tisss…*

    • Sk3ptic

      The religious really are the “chosen” people, aren’t they? They’ve chosen to be willfully ignorant.

      • Richard Rush

        And, based upon their chosen willful ignorance, they have chosen to self-identify as superior which then justifies their chosen authority to have dominion over everyone else.

    • crewman

      And if you are truly “ex-gay” why does that also mean you need to deny rights of people who are still gay. To me that exposes in the starkest way that these people were originally motivated by anti-gay religious rhetoric that motivated them to be not only “ex-gay” but also “anti-gay”.

    • GC

      And as many ex-Christians and other former religious believers will attest, most Christians and other theists get that way through childhood indoctrination!

    • Harley

      There are no ex-gays. Only gays who are celibate. Nothing more.

      • jmax

        My father is a recovered alcoholic who says there are no ex-alcoholics, just those who choose not to drink. And he admits it would only take one taste of liquor for him to fall off that wagon. I think of the “ex”-gays in the same way.

      • ExGayTherapyKills

        They say they are “celibate”. Some are not but live the lie to suck up to the anti-gay Christians.

  • Ginger Snap

    I wonder what that child was told sodomy is. Was he told it’s ass fucking or just it’s icky sinful gays?

    • M Jackson

      Ginger, I would keep you far away from the kids and sitting right here by me.

      • Ginger Snap

        I’ll bring the wine you supply the glasses.

      • 2guysnamedjoe

        Well, they’ll learn about it sooner or later, and it’s better they should learn it from Ms. Snap than from some psychotic close-case bible thumper.

        • GC

          Whatever their attractions and desires happen to be, better that they learn with consenting peers. And that they get comprehensive, reality-based sex education!

          (Maybe that’s one reason why RWNJs are so deathly afraid of anything other than “Just Say No until you’re in a proper godly one-man-and-one-woman marriage”!)

  • Sam_Handwich

    unreal…

    A plane just flew over Ashland courthouse pulling “Stand Fast, Kim” sign – prompting “Go Kim Go” chants

    • Guess

      Kim doesn’t look like she could even stand fast, much less do anything else fast.

      • Steverino

        She’ll neither stand corrected, nor fast.

        • GC

          But isn’t fasting and prayer a time-honored way to get God to take notice that you’re REALLY REALLY serious?

    • Well if that’s what they want to blow their money on then more power to them, not going to affect the court at all.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    So does defy-tyrants-dot com take you to a kiddie porn site ?

    • johncAtl

      I went. It redirects to a site written by a lunatic preacher in Wisconsin.

      • Ragnar Lothbrok

        Even worse !

        • vorpal

          If the lunatic preachers are indeed right (like they always are, which is why we’ve already had 180 end-time raptures because 2*2*3*3*5=180 + logicks), both will be illegal soon!

  • Sam_Handwich

    any guesses on what Bunning will do?

    will there be riots if she gets fined or imprisoned?

    • Gustav2

      If we were one of the gay couples there, we would wait until the crowd dispersed and have marshals escort us out.

    • oikos

      Fines with threat of imprisonment is my guess.

    • Riots no, the most the anti-gays can do is maintain a small protest, they don’t have the support for a riot. The anti-gays might want it to happen but it is wishful thinking on their part.

  • oikos

    Has recruited young boys. Those “still gays” have serious mental health issues and this is a form of child abuse.

  • b

    We have your number, bitches. But when they are a little older — 25 — they scream during a cream, wait.

  • Whatever became of that Jeff Gannon/James Guckert guy?

    • noni

      He lives with George W.

  • AtticusP

    I think that the kid holding the yellow sign misspelled the word “fun”.

    • M Jackson

      You make good lemonade out of the lemons.

    • Ginger Snap

      His home skooling is showing.

  • Skokieguy

    To the youngster who things sodomy is sin (as if he even knows what the words mean). If you think something is a sin, you have the freedom to not engage in it.

    You do not have the freedom to compel me to live my life by your beliefs.

    • gaymex

      Isn’t this some sort of social services issue when children are involved?

      • GC

        Calling Child Protective Services… (but it won’t do any good if the state’s social services are overrun with Christianist batshittery!)

        • gaymex

          If I had asked my young son to hold up a sign saying “Sodomy is …(whatever),” by the time I finished answering all his questions about sodomy I am sure I would have wished I had never made the request. I wonder how they answer those questions when they come up?

  • vorpal

    The fact that he can put three pathetic names of current “ex-gays” on a sign is a testament to how ridiculous the concept of “ex-gay” actually is. (I am reminded of ex-gay pride 2014 in DC when a whopping 10 people out of the 10,000+ that were predicted to show up appeared to show the world that ex-gays exist, and all of them were somehow personally involved in administering ex-gay programs, calling their legitimacy into serious question.)

    It’s also funny that the biggest and loudest supporters of ex-gays / ex-gay therapies themselves are usually far-right heterosexual Christians, and not the elusive, almost never seen ex-gays themselves.

    Indeed, I could write up a sign right now with at least 20 names of ex-ex-gays on it.

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      The extremely rare, elusive, never seen ex-gays have very unusual breeding habits.
      As they are nocturnal, these unusual habits have yet to be filmed.

      • vorpal

        You’d have to brave their breeding grounds to catch them in the act.

        Personally, I have no desire to browse craigslist m4m ads and go to the RNC.

      • oikos

        Once in a while one is captured on film in their gay bar habitat : John Paulk

      • Ginger Snap

        I wonder what the Honey Badger would have to say about this?

      • Fernando Leon

        Yes, as nocturnal as their emissions everytime they subconsciously dream about men, then feel guilty about it. Now that is how being “ex-gay” feels like…when they hold their feelings in, then it goes out in wrong ways.

    • Goodboy

      ..and certified hate groups which I guess is one in the same.

    • Well and that’s why the ex-gay activists exist….so people can wave their name around and be like “see…. Change is possible” never mind that that most people who go into these programs revert to identifying as gay or that those who do identify as ex-gay revert back over time and that those who don’t are A. heterosexual, B. Bisexual and C. have a big motivation for identifying as ex-gay because it’s how they make their living.

  • dcurlee

    Looks like a pedophile convention to me

    • Goodboy

      It wouldn’t surprise me at all with these freaks. I’m sure the gay thing is just scratching the surface.

    • marigrace

      Kind of like NAMBLA.

  • Guess

    But Where Are the Clowns?

    Send In the Clowns!

    Don’t Bother… They’re Here!

    • Guess

      • Rebecca Gardner

        Gay!

  • TexasBoy

    Oh, look at those poor brainwashed young people. Won’t somebody, please, think of the children?!

  • David From Canada

    “Sodomy is Sin”. Gee, I’ve always felt that it’s kind of fun.
    Try it, you’ll like it!

    • GC

      To paraphrase Dan Barker, I have no use for anyone who cuts me with a knife, then offers to sell me a bandage.

  • kaydenpat

    How pathetic. They must know that they’ve lost this war. Davis is in a corner and she cannot win.

  • 2guysnamedjoe

    When is Queen Shit of Rowan expected to make her grand entrance?

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      She’s still home trying to figure out what to do with her hair.

      • Ginger Snap

        I think it’s the long sleeve shirt and sundress combo that has her stumped today.

      • Bert_Bauer

        Washing it would be a good start.

  • medaka

    This is the end, my only friend

    IOW: Felicia: Leave, NOW!

  • Ian

    Those voiceless fuckers sure are loud.

  • Isn’t this precious. Those torture victims are celebrating the same people who put them through some of the worst abuse a person can suffer. Oh, you poor things. Seriously, poor things.

  • marigrace

    Recruiting young boys….reminds one of the pedophile predator organization NAMBLA.

    • rextrek1

      religion – – poisoning human brains and rational thought since it’s Inception

  • Mike in Texas

  • Fyva Prold

    “After this, I invite you to participate in a therapy session”

  • delk

    So does sodomy boy think his mom never sucked his dad’s dick?

    • GC

      And if his mom’s preferences are like many women’s, hopefully his dad goes down on her as well!

      (Some male-female couples even enjoy teh buttsex!)

    • They don’t care about that kind of sodomy—to them sodomy only means homosexuality, most of them probably don’t even know that it includes heterosexuals as well.

  • Billanddogs

    “Recruited young boys.” Of course he did. Nothing at all suspicious about that. Repressed sexuality never has any untoward consequences. Just ask a Catholic priest.

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      The overnight camping trip is next on the agenda.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    The truth will set you free…….so naturally, I needed to fix a couple of things….

    • GC

      Good edits!

      The truth will set you free… it can also get you fired, kicked out of your home, shunned from the straight-and-narrow church community where the only family and friends you’ve known so far are… it can set you a lot freer than you’d (initially) like!

  • Mark

    So he was a pedo all along?

  • Bert_Bauer

    You just have to savor the irony of people who accuse others of exploiting children and exposing them to sex enlisting children to carry signs about sodomy.

  • RaygunsGoZap

    It’s like saying Kim Davis shit the bed and is rolling around in it.

  • BuffaloDan

    Honestly, you all have covered any truly cogent thoughts about this much better than I can today, but I have one curiosity: Can you _imagine_ being a normal person who has to work in that courthouse? Can we institute a Kickstarter to buy them boatloads of Anacin, or something…?

  • Stop ex-gay bashing!! (LOL!)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zMjg7T7cNk0

  • Kim Davis said that this isn’t a gay and lesbian issue for her….well her supporters prove otherwise. This isn’t about a religious belief at all its about trying to undermine marriage equality by defying the law and making a last stand for the anti-gays

    • Steverino

      It’s animus cloaked in religion, pure and simple.

      • GC

        Maroons and ignoranimuses!

  • RLK

    Who is that stupid little brainwashed kids holding up the signs? They should be so proud!

  • ExGayTherapyKills

    If you beat a dog long enough it will be submissive. Ex Gay Therapy is torture to force gay people to be straight and it does not work, it is a fraud that makes money for the anti-gay Christian psychotherapist.

    • GC

      The few “ex-gay” “successes” are people who are either (1) bisexual and repressing themselves Because God Said So, or (2) still gay and repressing themselves Because God Said So.

      We’ve certainly seen enough ex-ex-gays, especially among the movement’s former leaders!

  • Larry in Oklahoma

    There is no such thing as “ex-gays.” Just like there is no such thing as ex-smokers, ex-drinkers, and ex-drug users. They are merely people that have chosen not to be what they once were. Plain and simple.

  • 2patricius2

    I never have understood the affinity of “formerly” gay men or lesbian women for the term “ex-gay.” One would think if they really were “ex,” they would just call themselves straight and bow out of the limelight because they no longer needed to be attached to “gay.”

    • m_lp_ql_m

      My guess: they’re so full of self-hatred that simply being straight and homophobic isn’t enough.

  • GanymedeRenard

    “Ex-gay” my ass. They crave cock and they just repress this fact to the point of self-hate. Since they’re miserable, they want the majority of the fellow cock-cravers to be miserable, too. And recruiting young boys for hate? That’s despicable!

  • ChadSF

    Sad, truly sad!!

  • JCF

    “A man … has recruited young boys to join him”

    Parents, BE AFRAID!!!

  • ExGayTherapyKills

    Kim is going to jail where she belongs. The anti-gay Christians who do ex gay therapy also belong in jail.

  • John30013

    Ah, a job opening for Kimmie if she ever gets out of jail! How sweet of you to offer, but I’m not sure she reads this here blog thingie. Try the Rowan County Hoosegow.
