I don't think this is the kind of change Obama had in mind, and it's sure as hell not the kind of change I voted for. FYI: The Obama Administration does not approve this message.
You may remember a post I wrote towards the end of 08 about an "ex-homosexual" named Larell from Los Angeles and her testimony of being "delivered" from homosexuality(i.e. google Donnie McClurkin for more background info). Larrell and her Los Angeles based cult...I mean "church" Passion for Christ Movement have taken to social networking sites like Myspace to spread their brand of deliverance from such "abominable" acts as man on man and woman on woman love through videos and merchandise.
The latest Ex-tee to hit the market is the "Ex-Masturbator" Tee. I shi* you not! And to think I was almost convinced years ago that my homosexuality was going to send me straight to hell. Please. I've had more sex by myself over the years...I know-TMI.
Make no mistake about it, these people believe in "praying the gay away" and with charismatic people like Donnie McClurkin, Charlene Cothran, and beautiful Larell spewing this nonsense from the pulpit and on t-shirts some black folks are going to eat their message up faster than they can take off their shirts and sneak into the nearest gay bar.
Towleroad reader Zeke came up with a few suggestions of his own for t-shirts.
EX-PRETENDING TO BE STRAIGHT
EX-NOT THINKING FOR MYSELF
EX-MINDING SOMEONE ELSE'S DAMNED BUSINESS
EX-CUSE ME BUT WHO ASKED YOU?
and my favorite
EX-PUTTING YOUR COMFORT BEFORE MY TRUTH!
Feel free to add your own "Ex" t-shirt slogans in the comment section.
