This is precisely what Truth Wins Out did today when it sued Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays (PFOX), an atrocious organization dedicated to placing “ex-gay” fliers in public schools, where their poison is peddled to vulnerable LGBT youth. I decided to sue PFOX after its President, Greg Quinlan, appeared on a television show and falsely claimed that I tried to have him killed.
Today, I need your help more than ever. Lawsuits are expensive and without your urgent assistance we will not be able to fight back and WIN against PFOX. Please consider a tax-deductible contribution today.
On October 7, 2011, Quinlan was interviewed on News-Plus with Mark Segraves (WDCW-TV). At the 10:38 mark of the show, Quinlan told the host:
“Truth Wins Out if you look further, including Wayne Besen. He’s asked for people, you know, somebody needs to run Greg over. He needs to be hit with a bus. Somebody should inject him with AIDS. Those are the things that Wayne Besen and Truth Wins Out says about me. That’s pretty hateful rhetoric.”
Of course, this incident never occurred and Quinlan’s bizarre version of events is a complete fabrication. These brazen lies and scurrilous allegations were clearly designed to damage my reputation and that of Truth Wins Out – a group that I’m proud to say is despised by the “ex-gay” industry.
Aren’t you sick and tired of anti-gay activists lying and simply “making things up” without having to suffer the consequences? Haven’t you reached your limit of watching these charlatans and reprobates smearing our loving families without having to pay a price for their lies?
Personally, I’ve had enough – and this is why Truth Wins Out is the first LGBT organization to FINALLY take these habitual liars to court.
It is absolutely critical that we hold PFOX accountable. If anti-gay activists get away with saying that LGBT advocates are trying to murder them today – what will stop them from alleging that we are terrorists tomorrow? Clearly, these homophobes have no decency and wrongly believe that they can lie with impunity.
This time, let’s not let PFOX and Greg Quinlan off the hook.
If there was ever a time that I needed your help – it’s now. We can only hold PFOX accountable if you partner with us to stop the lies. Please consider a generous $10, $25, or $100 contribution to Truth Wins Out. If you can afford more, please consider $500 or $1,000 to give us the firepower we need to defeat PFOX.
Thank you for your generosity and kind consideration. Together, we can finally stand up to the bullies and let them know that lying and viciously attacking our families comes with serious consequences.
