Ex-gay activist Anne Paulk appeared today on “Family Talk,” where she told hosts James Dobson and Meg Meeker that parents should be skeptical when a teenage child comes out of the closet.
She advised parents to question their kids by asking questions like: “Why do you think that you are gay? What is happening in your life, son or daughter, that makes you think that you might be gay? Do you think maybe that you might be considering admiration of another person of the same gender and thinking you’re confused by what are normal crushes, guy crushes I think they call them nowadays, bromance or whatever?”
Paulk also warned that “there is a huge machine in public education” that instills kids with a “gay identity, and it’s just not fair to the individual.”
“Let’s be honest though, Anne, a revelation like that would scare most parents to death,” Dobson added. “They suck air trying to take that in and trying to stay rational at that moment is pretty tough.”
Ironically, Dobson’s Family Talk is using the broadcast to promote the book “Love Won Out” that Paulk authored with her ex-husband John Paulk, who now identifies as gay and strongly denounced the ex-gay movement.
Dobson added that there are “enticements” for young people to be gay these days and so they “don’t hear the other side” from anti-gay folks like himself. “My goodness they get trapped!”
“It’s almost politically correct to be homosexual or gay,” Dobson said. “You’re a hero by declaring that you’re gay,” Paulk replied, pointing to Michael Sam. “He became an overnight hero in many circles simply for saying ‘I’m gay.’ That’s our culture today.”
She then said the gay community doesn’t let people leave: “Once in, you’re not allowed out.”
