Alabama Attorney General Troy King, a conservative Republican Christian who has called homosexuality the ‘downfall of society,’ has been caught with his pants down-literally-in a gay sex scandal. King was reportedly nabbed having sex with a male assistant by his wife, Paige King, in the couple’ own bed. It is amazing – the more one condemns homosexuality, the more likely one is to be gay. It is a telltale sign, like freedom rings.

Such tragic stories show why it is so important to come out of the closet. The alternative is living a life of pain and denial. On Monday, I head to North Carolina to speak out against the “ex-gay” Exodus International conference. Exodus says they have more than 700 people already signed up.

Most of these people will realize they are being duped and walk away. Others will suffer for few years before they realize they have wasted time and money. Then, there will be the ones who remain and decide to live like Troy King. When I think of the Exodus conference, I think of Troy Kings in training.

How does this help the family?
