Father David Heron - speaking truth to power

As regular readers know, my disillusion with the church is almost terminal, but its good to see that there are still those who are prepared to speak out

Have a look at http://fatherdavidheron.blogspot.com . It is the satirical site of Father David Heron and his excellent expose of another blog by a prominent supporter and advocate of the self-hatred movement.

We need to remember that these people may be deluded and self-oppressed, but they are also dangerous, because they can and do fuck up others lives than their own. Some admit their delusion and /or mistake, and move on to do some good work - http://www.courage.org.uk being an example. But those who do not need to be vigorously opposed and challenged. They are too fearful to do this with those who understand that, as a contributor to David's blog notes " it's very strange for a robustly heterosexual man, particularly a member of the clergy, to maintain a website on the topic of how much he enjoys sticking it to the missus"

Peter Ould has threatened me again by claiming I have stolen his copyright and reported me to blogspot. He is determined to shut me down!

It really is nonsense - blog contents are not 'copyright' and anyone can link to another page.

he is a very frightened man - but this is the effect of self-oppression

Mike over at Lavender Wolves has got a very moving video with a bloke who managed to get away from the ex-gay thing. Do see it!
