  • So sad and awful. I have tears in my eyes for the little boy that Kirk was & for the man he became who couldn't get past the emotional & physical abuse he endured just for being who God made him.

    I do not understand why anyone can think that being gay is a choice, much less that it is a disease to be cured.

  • This was a federally funded program at UCLA, not a religious one

  • was done in the 70's when gay was a horrible thing to be. So I can see how Mom thought Son was "broken". However the fact that the "researcher" still advocates his BS today says that there is something mentally wrong with HIM. I feel so bad for the shit that little boy went through at the hands of his parents on a doctors advice.

    BTW...My son plays with barbies and strollers, today nothing is wrong with that.

  • "we simply cannot embrace sin (of any kind)"

    It's this type of thinking that perpetuates the shit that goes on in that video.

    Evolve, please evolve, humans!

  • Are you aware, Elish, that "sin" is an idea?

    Are you aware that I don't share your belief? Are you aware that your so-called "objective" view of reality is actually subjective? You are seriously not going to be able to convince me of your opinion on sin - there's way too much objective evidence to the contrary and to not believe in it would be illogical.

  • This just angers me....hopefully, light will come from this situation & can help people understand that people are born the way they are.

  • ad, all I want is your thoughts. Religious people do this with their believes, I don't think this is what God had in mind.

  • Yes, ad, but the reason behind the parents sending them there are religious ones.

  • The man in question talks about being called an abomination and going to hell, and talked about feeling he wasn't loved by God, is that not religiously derived?
