“Ex-gay” crackpot Greg Quinlan is super-upset about this week’s episode of Criminal Minds, which featured a serial killer who’d undergone abusive “sexual conversion therapy.” Via World Net Daily:
The show portrays members of the ex-”gay” community as ticking time bombs who are potential serial killers. In one scene, a computer screen shot features a report portraying “The Ex-Gay Movement.” The description states that cautioning children to not have homosexual thoughts was harmful and that individuals merely claimed they had changed their same-sex attraction.
“It is obvious that the ex-gay movement has become such a threat to the homosexual agenda that their allies in the media and entertainment industry now feel they have to work so diligently to discredit us,” said Quinlan. “Why is this so high on their agenda? Is CBS now so desperate to try to get any kind of market share in primetime that they have to go this route?
Also screaming about the show are hate group leaders Linda Harvey (Mission America) and Mat Staver (Liberty Counsel).
“It is shocking that they would be so blatant and so insensitive to simply disregard the reality of what takes place during this change therapy,” Staver said. “They’re looking at some therapies that may have used shock treatment three decades ago that are no longer used. That’s like looking at somebody who performed a lobotomy on someone years ago and suggest that this is modern practice for the conversion therapy movement. It is simply inaccurate and irresponsible for the media to portray something that was done many years ago as being part of modern therapy techniques like this particular episode does.” He explained the reality is that conversion therapy is no different than any other type of counseling being done today.
