Why the ex-gay movement provokes rage and censorship

Feb 10, 2018 by

by Carys Moseley, Christian Concern:

In the light of Vue Cinemas cancelling the premiere of ‘Voices of the Silenced’, Carys Moseley looks at the fervent opposition to the ex-gay movement and shows the need for the freedom to seek help for unwanted same-sex attraction.

This week the private screening of Voices of the Silenced, the film produced by Core Issues Trust interviewing a number of ex-gay people from different countries was cancelled by the host Vue Cinemas in Piccadilly, central London. This was after the LGBT news site Pink News wrote an ‘exclusive’ story on Tuesday 6 February revealing details of the private screening. On Wednesday 7 February Pink News revealed the screening had been cancelled following ‘a Pink News investigation’.

This isn’t the first time Core Issues Trust and its director, Mike Davidson, have been hounded and censored by the press. The important question though is why. It is clear from the original article that Pink News supports not only the Memorandum of Understanding signed by several mental health organisations opposing clients’ right to choose therapy for unwanted same-sex attraction but also making this illegal, against the government’s publicly-stated view.
