So now they have "Make 'Em Straight" camps for teenagers. Yep. No joke.
Christian camps to which gay & lesbian teens are shuttled by their parents. Who needs swimming lessons and horseback riding when you can have "conversion therapy"?
My heart breaks for these kids. Here's the recent NYT piece that describes a kid from Tennessee who blogged about his pre-departure anxiety, and a site that his supporters have since launched to help raise awareness.
(Thanks to Lilibeth over on dKos for posting the story -- and I agree with her - WTF was this doing in NYT's Style section!??!?)
Sep 20 Update: Evidently the state of Tennessee has shut these fuckers down. Good news, indeed. Of course, that TN regulators shut them down for concerns over how "Love in Action"
I'd like to believe that reaction from the press and around the blogs over this farce of a "treatment center" is part of what led TN to investigate. Regardless, however, can I get a GOOD RIDDANCE from the crowd??!?
