PFOX Official: Homosexual Activists Want to Censor
'Tolerance Police' Blasted for Opposing Ex-Homosexual Group's Flyer
Handout at MD High School
By Jim Brown (American Family Radio News)
(AgapePress) - An informational flyer distributed by an ex-"gay"
group at a Maryland high school has administrators, faculty, and
students who support homosexuality seething. Parents and Friends of
Ex-Gays and Gays (PFOX) recently passed out the flyer to 3,000
students at Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring.
The handout distributed by the ex-homosexual group states its
belief "in unconditional love for family members with same-sex
attractions" and its goal of seeking "to eliminate prejudice and
discrimination against former homosexuals." PFOX executive director
Regina Griggs says those who are raising angry objections to the
flyer distribution are demonstrating intolerance. Also, she feels
they are obstructing a legitimate effort to provide young people with
certain facts about homosexuality.

homosexual activists "do not want people to know that change is
possible," she says, and "they certainly do not want you to provide
These pro-homosexual tolerance and diversity advocates generally "see
ex-gays as nonexistent," the PFOX official contends. And when former
homosexuals are introduced to society, she says, many homosexual
activists become afraid that this "confuses the public and may
actually be a deterrent to gay marriage and other civil rights that
they believe they deserve."
Nevertheless, Griggs says PFOX will not let opposition or hostility
from homosexual opponents deter the group's efforts to tell the
public the truth about homosexuality or to let those struggling with
unwanted homosexuality know that change is possible. The flyer
distribution at Montgomery Blair High School, she suggests, was
simply intended to let students know that information and help are
Last year, PFOX won a lawsuit challenging Montgomery County's sexual
education curriculum. In that case, a federal judge ordered the
school system to toss out the biased, pro-homosexuality curriculum
that made derogatory comments about Christian views on homosexual
