In Case Any of You Think You're Having a Bad Week

This 16 year old named Zack, in Memphis, had the incredible guts to come out to his parents, despite the fact that they were Levitican Christians, apparently, last week.

This week, they have clapped him in a Christian Reform School Slash Boot Camp, where the aim is to either "fix" him (because, after all, he must be broken -- this despite the fact that no one except fundie Christians and fundie Islams and fundie Jews thinks being gay is an illness or evil anymore) or -- get this -- kill him.

"I would rather you commit suicide than have you leave Love In Action wanting to return to the gay lifestyle. In a physical death you could still have a spiritual resurrection; whereas, returning to homosexuality you are yielding yourself to a spiritual death from which there is no recovery.”

Hey, that's some healthy therapy for you.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Levitican/Fundie Christians are some sick, sick, sick bastards.

I was reading his blog earlier. He sounds like a smart, sensitive kid. I hope he comes out of this okay.
