Gay Memphis Teen Sent to Ex-Gay Camp Against Will
Oklahoma Independent Media Center, June 16 2005
If you haven't already heard about Zach....
Love in Action, or LIA, was founded in 1973 by John Evans, who claimed to be a former homosexual, and Rev. Kent
Philpott, a heterosexual. It was the first group to publicize cases of homosexuals who had allegedly been converted or learned to abstain from homosexuality or homosexual feelings, which were perceived as sinful and in violation of biblical moral code.
Shortly after founding the group, when his patients numbered six, Philpott wrote a book about his ministry called "The Third Sex?," which claimed that his patients had successfully changed their sexual orientation through prayer.
Zach posted on his blog and sparked a revolution.
There has been an enormous outpouring of love and support from the entire world from people of all faiths, orientations, and nationalities with over 700 comments on his last blog post alone.
