“Ex-Gays” Demand Meeting With Obama

Via World Net Daily:

Just imagine a president, like Barack Obama for example, refusing to meet with a group because of their sexual orientation. Impossible, you say? A petition has been launched at Change.org, a popular online petition-posting site that boasts it is integral to helping people “transform their communities” every day, asking President Obama to keep his word. In his victory speech on November 5, 2008, as reported by the New York Times,Obama said: “And for those Americans whose support I have yet to earn, I may not have won your vote tonight; but I hear your voices. I need your help, and I will be your president, too.” Which is just fine with the petition organizers, including Janet Boynes of Janet Boynes Ministries, if only he would. The problem for them is that he’s hasn’t met with them, or listened to them, and very likely the problem for Obama is that they are ex-”gays.” Former homosexuals. Former lesbians.

From the petition:

Sadly, Mr. President, you have not carried out your promise. For those of us who have left the homosexual lifestyle, you have never listened to us. Countless people who are participating in the homosexual lifestyle have visited with you at the White House, and you have supported them on numerous occasions. What about those of us whose compelling stories you have chosen to ignore? We also have voices; and when you were first elected, you promised to listen to us. That has not happened yet. Mr. President, when will you take the time to sit down with us and let us share our experiences? We the undersigned humbly ask you for this opportunity.

Despite being promoted by WND, the petition has gotten fewer than 2000 signatures since its posting over a week ago.
