    Basically calling Collins a jerk, a scumbag, selfish, etc for dating Moos for 8 years even though he knew he was gay.

    It's getting very, very tiring trying to explain to them that he did it because he was taught his whole life that being gay was a sin, and that to be a Christian and to fit in with society he had to be straight.  So he tried and tried and tried but finally could not maintain the facade.

    Then, of course, they just move on to the "is he REALLY gay or just trying to make money?" sorts of arguments.  I'm guessing that the people who think it's such a great advantage to come out as gay also think that Christians are the most persecuted people in the USA.

      what the "ex-gay" movement tells gays to do, without spending the thousands of dollars on their so-called "treatments" only to find out it's a load of bullshit.
