The “Facts” About…Homophobia

October 17, 2016 in General

Recently, I picked up a slender antigay booklet (John Ankerberg and John Weldon, Facts About Homosexuality, Harvest House: 2005). It was slashed to fifty cents, and was well worth the price…because it was a bargain basement set of conservative Christian homophobic mythology and legends, populated by a phantasmagoria of antigay subcultural luminaries with little standing outside the conservative Christian subculture- former California State Republican Congressperson William Dannemeyer, Enrique Rueda (The Homosexual Network, 1982), Paul Cameron (!!!), Joe Dallas, Charles Socarides, Joseph Nicolosi, Greg Bahnsen, Mark Yarhouse and so on. It’s a dreary set of rote propaganda exercises about how LGBT individuals are ‘made’, not born, all positive mainstream scientific research is ‘flawed’, so homosexuality is a ‘learnt preference,’ so the exgay movement is ‘legitimate.’ Oh, and Sodom and Gomorrah weren’t mythological places. Yeesh. Embarrassing. Even to phobes.
