Love in Action... creepy

Piasharn posted about this news...
a gay teenager forced by his parents to attend a live-in program designed to change homosexuals to heterosexuals

The mind even boggles at the concept, but the program rules as posted by him are... scary.

If I was sent to a place like that to change any kind of behavior I had, I sure as hell wouldn't. I sincerely doubt the people running that place have any idea whatsoever what they're doing. But that's stating the obvious, isn't it?

The problem is that I'm sure most people sent there don't want to change their behavior, but if they're kept in as long as they didn't "amend"... :/
They have to at least pretend to change.

And it's certainly not going to help them feel good about themselves.

But in Piasharn's post, it's said that the responsible has presumably said to one of these kids that he'd like better to see him committing suicide than coming back to his heterosexual ways.... O_O
So if this is true, they don't care about their well being.

Oh no, I never thought that fundamentalist were sane... But the depths that human stupidity and harmfulness never ceases to amaze me.
