Ex-Gay Activist, and Michele Bachmann Side-kick, Janet Boynes to have Booth at NEA Convention

Wayne Besen has the scoop:

Ex-Gay leader Janet Boynes will be staffing the first ever "ex-gay" exhibit at the National Education Association's annual meeting in Orlando, Florida THIS WEEK. She will even have a brainwashing booth to fool educators into thinking kids can pray away the gay.

This is part of an orchestrated effort on the part of the ex-gay ministries to target children. As a community, we have a clear choice to make: We can either sit on the sidelines and let the right wing mentally abuse kids or we can choose to take a stand and put a stop to this madness.

Will Janet be giving her 85-90% of Lesbians are lesbians because they've been raped statistic?

Janet Boynes mentor, Michele Bachmann said in a speech to the anti-gay Edwatch:

It's profoundly sad to recognize that almost all, if not all, individuals who have gone into the lifestyle have been abused at one time in their life, either by a male or by a female. There's been profound hurt and profound things that have happened in almost all of their lives. And this gives us great compassion. So this is not about gay bashing. Do we understand that? This is not what this is about.

As I've said before, to Michele Bachmann, the only good gay is the Ex-gay.
