I say Let’s talk about your characterization of this as "not wanting to talk about it."

http://mikeensley.vox.com/library/post/pretending-the-debate-is-over.html

Mike Ensley: If there are some folks who need to censor, stigmatize, call names--that only leads me to ask, who are they really trying to convince? My guess: themselves.

Mike Ensley: None of that changes the fact that people who struggle with homosexuality don't have to embrace it. They can live differently, love differently, and find happiness and wholeness on another path. People can and people do. That's all I need to know.

How? How Mike? How can they love differently?

How can they LOVE differently?
Mike Ensley: But you've got to suspect why some can't abide even the possibility of discussing ex-gay lives and views.

Yet you state yourself that you continue to experience same-sex attraction.

From the hideously--virulently-anti-gay Day of Truth website you say: "As a single guy who continues to experience h same-sex attractions"

And from your own Exodus Youth Truth and Tolerance DVD you say: "Do I still feel, homosexual attractions? Um, yeah."
Mike Ensley: People can and people do. That's all I need to know.
So be it. But I would ask, how is it possible that you can feel responsible for offering and defending something that you do not even have for yourself?

Change happens in the midst of ongoing struggle. But, you read the whole article and watched the whole video, so of course you knew that ;-)

It's to my understanding that this particular "ex-gay" has a boyfriend, and has had a boyfriend the entire time he's been with Exodus. Of course he doesn't speak about it, because that would ruin his payroll.
