Campaign to revoke charitable status of Exodus Global Alliance

A group that seeks to help people overcome homosexual tendencies.

Reinforcing the idea that people should detest their natural sexual orientation can lead to demonstrable harm,

But...what about...choice?

What if you don't want to be gay?

What if you've determined you'd be happier not having homosexual tendencies?

Doesn't the invidual know better than some lobbying organization?

Isn't this a violation of personal autonomy?

Guess not!

I guess if you want to change gender, that's fine, but if you want to change sexual orientation, that's wrong.

While Exodus likes to spin the same argument around and claim that the “gay lifestyle” (whatever that means) is harmful even if gay people don’t agree, this is not backed up by the medical and psychological community.

Except for all those diseases that are the result of frequent anal sodomy. No evidence whatsoever...

The world’s largest and most well-respected medical organisations have all gone on record to say that homosexuality is not a recognized disorder, that gay people are not inherently worse off than straight people, that sexual orientation is unchangeable, and that attempts to change it often result in serious psychological harm.

And they're not motivated by ideology what-so-ever. We know it's all politics.
