At an anti-marriage-equality press conference today at the National Press Club, ex-gay activist Janet Boynes claimed that media outlets and the White House are shutting out ex-gays because they fear that they will “debunk” the entire gay rights movement.
“Why don’t you see me on CNN or ‘Today’ or MSNBC or ‘Good Morning America’?” she asked. “Because they have all the gays and lesbians on their show, but if I come on the show I will tear down their belief system. That’s my goal, to debunk everything that they are saying to be true when I know it is a lie.”
Boynes went on to say that gay people are using schools and Hollywood to convince kids to “try out homosexuality” get “hooked.” “When we reject reality, we harm our children,” she said. “Their goal is to indoctrinate our kids.”
Boynes also had a message for President Obama: “You have allowed gays and lesbians into the White House. You sat down with them. You had dinner with them. You heard their voices, but not once have you allowed those of us who walked out of the life of homosexuality to come into the Oval Office, to come into the White House and hear our stories. I challenge you today to allow us to come, and you listen to what we have to say.”
