I need some dark humor before my Reiki session. As some of you know from my Facebook page (www.facebook.com/homospirituality), I’m having fun with what I’m calling “creative activism.” (uh, a.k.a. satire). I’m meeting with “famous” people (who would never really meet with me) and we are discussing some of the most important issues in politics and religion. This weekend, I’ve been hanging out with Alan Chambers of Exodus International. Today we decided that Exodus needs a marketing make-over (You should have seen his reaction to the word make-over. Wow!)
So energetically, I’m sitting at a coffee shop with Alan and we are brainstorming slogans and taglines.
This is what we came up with:
10. Exodus International: Services include Assisted Sexual Suicides.
9. Exodus International: Captivating since 1976.
8. Exodus International: Where Worshipping the Heterosexual never Felt so Gay.
7. Exodus International: As Close to Hell as You Can Get
6. Exodus International: Pay Now, Gay Later
5. Exodus International: The Softer Side of Genocide
4. Exodus International: Where Men Lie about Men and Women Lie about Women
3. Exodus International: I Survived Self-mutilation and all I got was this F*cking T-shirt
2. Exodus International: Now Hiring Psychologists and Counselors. No Degree or Training Required
1. Exodus International: Celebrating 35 Years of Christian-Funded Soul-Raping
Be sure to check the brochure stand at Faux Community Megachurch near you for these new marketing materials. We are very proud of them. The Lord really spoke through us and people will be moved to change who they are and become their whole heterosexual selves, just like us…
Thus concludes my snarkiest post ever!

Dedicating this post to Michael Bussee, a co-founder of Exodus International who has publically denounced the practices and beliefs of Exodus International. Thank you for trying to make it right. http://www.beyondexgay.com/article/busseeapology
