Empty Legal Threats Are Fun!

Everyone's favorite Ex-Gay ministry has put up some billboards in the mid-west advertising their product (a nicely packaged lie), with a new "Gay? Unhappy?" campaign. I mean, I have to admit, I am gay, and I am sometimes unhappy. I was unhappy just the other night when I was in the lab at 3 AM and the results from my project weren't coming out right. Just last week I was damn unhappy when I got another parking ticket! BLAST YOU STREET SWEEPING!!! So...does this mean that exodus has a solution to both my parking tickets and my statistical tests for a school project? If I go to the website and find that they don't....I'm going to be pretty unhappy.

Anyway, a Blogger posted a parody of the billboard on his Blog: Justinsomnia, and was sent a cease and desist letter from Liberty Counsel, a faith-based legal group and ministry. For the full details, and the letter, check out the letter.

In the interest of standing up against intimidation from those who would rather not see us express ourselves in response to their hatred (yes, yes I know, they call it loving Christian outreach, I call it hatred because of the hatred it fuels), I'm mirroring the image here. Just make sure you see the original to get the joke ;-)

I've come up with my own parody (I may do some more if they come to me). No disrespect meant to ex-gays or insults meant to their sexual identity which is uniquely their own. However, when you broadcast the notion that homosexuals are unhappy because of their nature rather than because of society's response to that nature, then expect a little tongue-in-cheek response. ;-)
