WASHINGTON President Donald Trump delivered a speech at the Values Voter Summit on Friday, hosted by the far-right Christian organization The Family Research Council.
The convention also featured an exhibit on gay conversion therapy, which seeks to navigate homosexuals and their family members from an anti-gay perspective.
The Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays (PFOX) organization, which was founded in 1998 "to be an alternative to the misinformed gay family groups which insist that parents can only prove their love for their gay child if they support gay rights and affirm their child's self-proclaimed gay identity," distributed a number of pamphlets and literature about guiding families on what do when they learn their child is gay. The pamphlets include two descriptions of the types of homosexuals: "the struggler" and "the seeker."
The struggler, PFOX says, is "someone wrestling with unwanted feelings of sexual attraction for the same-sex."
"This person is struggling to understand what it all means, but often feels that no one will understand them or their struggle," a pamphlet read.
The seeker is "someone who has been, or currently, on the journey of overcoming unwanted same-sex attraction."
"They are the 'ex-gay' the person who at one time perhaps publicly identified as gay, but made a decision to change their life," it read.
At the PFOX booth, volunteers were also distributing small buttons that read "Ex-Gay Is OK!" in Comic Sans font.
Other items distributed included pamphlets and guidance on dealing with being transgender, citing one individual who "overcame" his transgenderism and converted back to being a man after having transitioned to being a woman.
"Through fundraising efforts, PFOX raised enough money for Darryl to reclaim his masculinity by undergoing numerous surgeries to reverse his appearance as female," the pamphlet read.

I have a dear friend whose son is now an ex-gay. He told her, “Satan tried to steal my manhood.”
Well, if there’s a statement in Comic Sans, it is obviously wrong... We all know how evil Comic Sans is...
I mean, really, why would a reporter ever think about putting that little detail in? I’ve never seen a news item mention the font used for a button before.
The left has been pretty sore about it thats for sure.
Finally, a ray of common sense to get help for deeply sick people. My good friend’s son went through the successful conversion and has been happily married to a sweet woman for more than a decade.
That’s what free speech is about
Since people go from being normal to being “gay”, turnabout is fair play.
Author Joe Perticone seems rather butt hurt over gay conversion therapy.
>> Ive never seen a news item mention the font used for a button before.
It used to be very common in desktop publishing magazines.
“Author Joe Perticone”
To borrow his style, it’s “far-left author Joe Perticone”.
The horror /s
Every morning I wake up and know there is going to be another day FULL of handwringing and wailing from the left. I never knew a Donald J Trump presidency was going to be this much fun.
How dare the evil Christians try to effect a Democrat Voting Demo!
If a person has an addiction to cigarettes, he can purchase medication to quit, obtain counseling or hypnosis, or even go “cold turkey” and vastly improve his life.
If a person has a somatic disease, he can go to a doctor, receive diagnosis and treatment, and hopefully, a cure.
If a person struggles with mental illness, he can seek professional help, and, either through medication or therapy, at least be able to control his illness and lead a normal life.
If a person is addicted to hard drugs, there are programs available to withdraw from them, clean up, and get a life.
If a person is an Alcoholic, he can go to the nearest church basement and attend AA to get his life back.
However, if a person experiences gender confusion, same-sex attraction, gender disphoria, or trapped in a self-destructive lifestyle, it is either taboo, politically incorrect, or even illegal to help him, even if he is your own minor child going through this.
Anyone anti-perversion is far-right to them.

What, no kerning factor?
I can’t see any homo going straight for anything less than 36 point Arial Bold.
Was there a display next to it or elsewhere highlighting what Islam does to homosexuals?
