Wal-Mart offers "ex-gay" children’s book
More than 100 Wal-Mart stores are offering for sale "ex-gay" children's book Chased by an Elephant: The Gospel Truth About Today's Stampeding Sexuality.
QSaltLake.com reported that the book's author, Janice Barrett Graham, is married to anti-gay group Standard of Liberty President Stephen Graham. The author wrote Chased by an Elephant to "help shed the clear light of truth on today's dark and tangled ideas about male and female, proper gender roles, the law of chastity, and the God-given sexual appetite," according to the book's introduction.
"The number of our young people involved in sexual sins has greatly increased in recent years. Some of the most stalwart-seeming youth find themselves involved in pornography, fornication, promiscuity, homosexuality, and the like," Janice continued.
The Grahams claim that their son, Andrew, resisted homosexual urges and is now living happily as an "ex-gay" man.
Andrew, who wrote the book Captain of My Soul, said in the book's introduction that he was "lured into same-gender Internet pornography during his high school years, and recruited into cursory homosexual experimentation with older men while at Brigham Young University." He also called gay lifestyles "deceitful" and "predatory."
