Former homosexual will take question to DC: Where are our 'special protections?'

A leader in the ex-homosexual movement says he is fed up with the homosexual-affirming attitude of Washington – all at the expense of former homosexuals. 

Doug McIntyre heads Acceptance Fellowship Ministries and Homosexuals Anonymous, and he is heading to Washington, D.C. on July 31 to speak in favor of people who have left the homosexual lifestyle. The group plans to visit senators and representatives, and demand equal rights as ex-homosexuals.

“Formerly gay people, if we say something we can be heckled, we can be hurt…” says McIntyre. “But we have no special protection.”

Yet, homosexuals are protected in many states by law and the other side is shut down.

Both California and New Jersey have passed laws even forbidding counseling for sexually confused children. McIntyre says that's just one example of the bias against people who have left the lifestyle or want to.

McIntyre tells OneNewsNow it will take a show of public support to let Washington know it's possible to successfully leave the homosexual lifestyle.

“If you feel like your rights are being infringed upon, come down and stand with us,” he says.
