The D-list ex-gay who once told me, "I am physically attracted to the spirit of Christ
,” Charlene "You Follow Me?" Cothran
, is now begging for coins—all under the name of God and prayers. Alicia Banks
forwarded me Cothran’s holiday email to convert the gays because "preservation of the family is what Thanksgiving celebrates"—damn, are the gays now a threat to Native American genocide day?
Her former LGBT magazine, Venus
, has fallen to pieces and Cothran needs serious dollars for The EVIDENCE Ministry, Inc. A new organization she probably conjured up while feeling her beaver swell as she obsessed about being “entangled with the bondage of lesbianism.” Her email read, “carefully lay the foundation for a loving ministry whose mission is to reach those who want to be free from homosexuality with the gospel of Jesus Christ, to offer tools to prevent homosexuality in today's youth and to offer hope & spiritual healing to parents and family members of gays and lesbians.”
Well, Cothran is asking to folks to write a hefty check for this mission impossible. She says, "Our prayer is that God will send 100 people to make a one-time donation of $300 or more or to donate $30 a month for one year." Sweet demonic, labia lips Jesus!
Even Barack Obama
started off asking for $5! Char is going right for the pocket and in these rough economic times. Well, I guess the only good thing about this is she will need some dollars to maintain that new perm and dye job.
Oh and where exactly will the money go? A radio program, hosted by Cothran herself... that should be a treat, hours of obsessing over lesbianism and inserting Jesus every time she needs to buy a new soft-butch pantsuit. Also, technical equipment to create a DVD teaching series—imagine the gems of wisdom that DVD will offer! Plus, Cothran and her “talented Board of Directors,” who are not named, want to launch a web site and prepare for mini conferences in 2010. Her hope is, “built on nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness!”
This is kind of like those modeling agencies in New York City that are advertised in the back of The Village Voice
-- if they have to ask you for money, it isn't legit.
PS. Don't forget today is World AIDS Day. Ideas like reparative therapy, ex-gays, and begging for cash does nothing to help the battle against HIV/AIDS. If someone has convinced you that the supreme being views you as an abomination -- why would you put on a condom to protect your life?Check this outEx-Gay Aftermath
