They say being gay is a sin – and they can't get over it

David Pickup, a "reparative therapist" from California, runs some slides off a projector. He shows a happy, portly, gay couple in a posed photo. "On the outside they might smile, but inside they are numb or dead. Gays that are happy are gays who don't know about themselves," he says.

14th April, 2012. Another story in a series of Free Speech violations. I personally think that claiming homosexuality can be cured is, at best, empirically wrong, and worst, bigoted and prejudicial, but that doesn't mean we should ban people from offering their views, however 'offensive' we may deem them. The classic Voltaire quote which is rattled out on these occasions, while cliched, is oh-so-true: "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it".
