"A Very Isolating Experience"

Via Box Turtle Bulletin, a couple of clips from Exodus co-founder Michael Bussee (- woof -) on what happened when he left that ex-gay outfit, and what he regrets teaching; part of a series you can view in its entirety on YouTube.

First, I can totally relate to his description of being cursed and shunned:

And I understand exactly what he means about "the biggest heresy":

Interestingly, that Stonegate Fellowship Church video I referenced yesterday that Rob Tisinai posted on his blog has now been taken private by the owner; guess the secret of how to turn gay cocksuckers into born-again cuntlickers will have to remain a mystery known only to the saved.

Excuse my language, guys, but this subject really pushes my buttons:  that bullshit theology crucified me all of my teenage years, and came very close to killing me.  I still have the scars.  And they still fucking hurt.

That was the Devil's work, not God's.

Hi Russ, I just found your blog and I love it. The video you posted today was, how can I say, scary and sad, really sad! I live in NYC so I find what you say so cool to read. Anyway, I started my own blog about a month or so ago. Its called My Big Itch www.mybigitch.blogspot.com and I write about my life as a gay man in NYC and trust me it isn't easy. Its so hard some times that I needed to vent or I would self destruct. Thats where my blog comes in. The few who follow me have been great and I love their comments. I hope you will take a look at my blog and hopefully follow me as well. Talk soon. Steve

Thanks for posting these clips.

Yes many of us still carry scars, but they can and do heal over, friend.
