The ex-gay movement has always been at odds with reality when it comes to their psychological methodology. Now they seem to be fundamentally at loggerheads with it in another, more prosaic sense.

When an organization with firm beliefs has thousands of devotees, we call it a movement. When its adherents number in the dozens, we call it a cult.

Less Than Ten People Attend 'Ex-Gay Rally' After 'Thousands' Predicted (Audio)

Sandy Rios predicted on her American Family Association radio show yesterday that "thousands" of "ex-gay" people would show up for an "Ex-Gay Pride" rally and press conference in Washington D.C. today.

...

She then interviewed Ex-Gay Pride Month organizer Chris Doyle, who added: "We are descending on Capitol Hill tomorrow as you said and we are going to let our voices be heard. As you know, Washington D.C. is the only jurisdiction in the United States where ex-gays are actually a protected class from discrimination, however, we would like that to be across the United States."

"And we are demanding that not only Congress hear our voices, but at 2 p.m. we are going to stand in front of the Supreme Court and hold a rally and press conference, and demand that Justice Kennedy understand that gays and lesbians are not the only sexual-orientation class that faces animus in this country," said Doyle.

However, "thousands of ex-gays" did not descend on Washington D.C. today. Less than ten people showed up.

Being Ex-gay is akin to being Ex-on vacation. Eventually you have to come home and pay the bills.
