Can I disco now?
Focus on the Family's Citizen Link breathlessly reports that a gay-changing billboard at the fourth annual gay-changers conference in St. Louis known as Love Won Out was vandalized.
The billboard was hit with paint balls that obscure parts of the text and some of the mascot's face (see photo left).
The billboards were placed by Exodus International, two of whose founding fathers eventually had an exodus of their own to get married. To each other.
Citizen Link's article quotes one man who "changed": "As a former homosexual I can attest that I have faced much more intolerance since leaving homosexuality than before..."
He's got a point about tolerance, I suppose, but until there's a rich historical record of murdering people who hold gay changing conferences, let's just say that the bulk of hatred and intolerance falls on the side of homophobes themselves...
And while I certainly don't condone the defacing of billboards or the throwing of eggs to make a point, I do understand the desire to get out and some frustration. So I humbly suggest a slightly more creative outlet for the paintballers (assuming it was done by pranksters of a political stripe.
Shoot the proper letters out to leave only this phrase: "Can I disco now." (FocusOnTheFamily)
