In a 1997 interview with the Memphis Flyer, Love In Action’s Director, John Smid, spoke of how he overcame homosexuality.
– “I’m looking at that wall and suddenly I say it’s blue,” Smid said, pointing to a yellow wall. “Someone else comes along and says, ‘No, it’s gold.’ But I want to believe that wall is blue. Then God comes along and He says, ‘You’re right, John, [that yellow wall] is blue.’ That’s the help I need. God can help me make that [yellow] wall blue.” (Memphis Flyer, 1997)
Ex-Gay Author Anne Paulk explaining how she displaced lesbian thoughts and became heterosexual
– “…I would start to experience a sexual response…So I’d look out the car window and say something like, “Gosh, lord, there’ a tree out there! That tree is green, and it has leaves on it. It’ got brown bark.’ I would fix my mind on anything and everything to distract myself…over time that process made me mentally disciplined enough to displace all lesbian thoughts, period.” (Anne Paulk, “Love Won Out,” 1999, Tyndale, pg. 126)
