    UN Human Rights Panel Addresses 'Ex-Gay' Torture

    The United Nations Committee Against Torture (CAT) addressed the issue of "ex-gay" conversion therapy for the first time in Geneva, Switzerland today, questioning representatives of the U.S. Department of State about the practice and asking why it is allowed to continue in the country.

    Gee, I'm surprised they had time to fit this in after giving time - and space - to the Michael Brown coalition. UN Security must have loved that one.

    The con artists who operate these fraudulent clinics should be put out of business immediately. If there were any justice, they would be jailed for the psychological damage they are doing to vulnerable young people whose only "crime" was having simple-minded parents who fall prey to conservative anti-gay propaganda.

    And yet the gay reparative therapy clinics have their defenders, even on a gay site like RJ as you can see.

    An interesting observation Mr. Deco. Could you point me to a post here on RJ where a member is "defending gay reparative therapy clinics?" I would be much obliged if you would.

    Ridiculing and dismissing the negative findings on US gay reparative therapy by the United Nations Committee Against Torture would be defending gay reparative clinics in the US, yes? Or else why do it? On the ideological grounds of opposition to the UN in general?

    I don't think that'll wash. If you oppose any criticism of gay reparative therapy it's because you're in favor of gay reparative therapy.
    1 + 1 = 2

    An interesting insight into your thought proccess, but you didn't answer my question: Could you point me to a post here on RJ where a member is "defending gay reparative therapy clinics?"

    If you've actually considered what I wrote, and drawn the logical conclusions, you would have your answer. I do not need to repeat myself for your enjoyment, nor draw a diagram for you.

    But let's drop the pretense - you already know what I mean. You denigrate yourself rather than me when you pretend otherwise.

    I already did. You are becoming a nagging annoyance.

    But I've gotta break here for a few hours. Going down to Miami Beach (where you claimed you used to live) for a huge private Christmas party in 30 minutes.

    You can bash me in my absence. I'll be back sometime before midnight. icon_biggrin.gif

    What he calls mathematics is just dramatics. Not democratic but merely fanatic.

    Normally I avert my eyes to avoid reading the crap I've clicked onto ignore but happened to catch some of the quoted nonsense here and boy what a bad memory that brought to mind.

    This is just as moronic as when that uppity thing stupidly denounced my ballot worthless, wrongly accusing me even of voting for antigay forces by my refusal to support a candidate who had the fuck not only previously but recently successfully supported a constitutional amendment violating LGBT human rights.

    What a fucking joke! 1+1=simpleton!

    Just because someone might have an issue with the UN (and I have no idea what the accused, alleged "detractors'" issues might be and frankly don't give a flying fuck) that would be regardless to the UN's finding on this particular issue. One has nothing to do with the other. In fact, if they've legitimate complaint as I did about that fucked up, douchebag of a waffling candidate the spineless democrats proffered as a Florida governor, then it would be as wrong to not lodge a complaint as it would be to support driving a car down a mountain road with one wheel wobbling.

    Your fly is open.

    Just as I never supported antigay forces as that stupid fucking snot accused me--and he can continue to go fuck himself for that--not one person here defended wrongly-named reparative so-called therapy, as that embarrassment to the Democratic party has yet again wrongly accused.

    1+1=dumb enough to be a Republican.

    southbeach1500 saidMr. Deco, there is an unanswered question:

    Could you point me to a post here on RJ where a member is "defending gay reparative therapy clinics?"


    The closest was probably me when I said several times that participating or even reading RJ is an effective ex-gay substitute, mostly because of Art_Deco. However, little Joe is working overtime to catch up.
