    These subhuman vermin need to die slowly, and their names need to be forgotten.

    I love when people try to say we don't persecute gay people in this society. Stories like this break my heart and make me wonder how these people can live with themselves.

    An interesting story based on her account.

    Assuming this were true, it doesn't really do much but stir emotions and anger. If true, then yes that is unfortunate for her.

    Then again, we all use our own accounts and the accounts of others to indirectly support and advance our political ideas.

    Just because theres no other way to put it, anybody that says that or thinks that is an absolutle ignorant, clueless, blind moron.
    PURE STUPIDITY 1.) Glenn Beck doesnt lie. 2.) Obama is Jesus like 3.) Sara Palin is so smart & shes a great speaker. 4.) Obama does just about everything perfect. 5.) Fox doesn' t lean right 6.) Pro-Choice is no different than Pro-Slavery 7.) MSNBC doesn't lean left. 8.) What TSA does is no different than sexual assault & child porn.

    Re: A gay teen describes her experience at a Utah brainwashing facility

    Several things need to be said. First, the facility she was at was run by World Wide Association of Specialty Programs and Schools - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. They have a long record of being subject to lawsuits, most of which(but not all) don't succeed. The facility itself is Cross Creek Programs. I can find no evidence yet that either targets being gay as a reason to work with a child.

    The report is simply her word. Without some sort of backing, it really is impossible to say that she was sent there due to her sexuality. Further, she does not actually say it was for that, she just kinda thought it might be. It does not pay to jump to conclusions however.

    Lastly: that is painful reading, and if even only a small part of it is true, I admit to wishing bad things to happen to those who perpetrated it, those who turned a blind eye, those who defend the program, and most of all to parents who would actually put their children through it.

    As Redress said, we don't know for sure.

    Do you think all accounts are true and never exaggerated?

    I don't. Do you?

    Interesting. I dealt with that particular Cross Creek Program about 15 years ago... at least it seems to be the program that I recall dealing with. Admittedly, this was 15 years ago, and I have only a very vague memory of it, and it certainly could have changed, but I remember it being a very solid residential boarding school.

    Reading over Cross Creek's website, I am struck how vague it is. No details on treatment, no details on what they treat, not much of anything. I find that worrying though possibly understandable.

    That's what I remember about them, way back. I watched their video, and it was vague, too. I saw the client a few years later... after she left, and she had only good things to say, though.
