On her radio program today, the American Family Association’s Sandy Rios promoted the upcoming Ex-Gay Awareness Month — at which she will be receiving the prestigious “Friend of Ex-Gays Freedom Award” — by repeating a hoax story about a mother-daughter lesbian couple.
Rios read her guest, ex-gay activist Christopher Doyle, an article from the website Stuppid.com that supposedly tells the story of a mother-daughter couple named Vertasha and Mary Carter.
But as the myth-busting website Snopes.com reports, the story is a complete hoax.
“The fight against this movement, it’s like a powerful force of immorality that threatens to overtake us,” Rios said of the fictitious story, before comparing ex-gay activists like Doyle to “Muslims who don’t declare their devotion to jihad.”
Doyle added: “There’s people out there that are trying to normalize this craziness. Where does it end?”
