Ex-Gay Watch First to Report the Coup?

Timothy Kincaid over at Ex-Gay Watch may be preparing us for a major exposé on the hostile overthrow of Exodus International by an aggrieved heterosexual.

In three scathing back to back posts, Timothy reveals the evil workings of Nancy Brown, the heterosexual woman (and wife of an ex-gay) who is the principal propagandist, um writer, for Exodus' media blog and the author of much of their FAQ pages. According to Timothy, "Exodus International has turned much of their public voice over to Nancy Brown".

Are we about to see a bloodless coup? Will Nancy Brown, a woman who has endured a 30 year marriage to an ex-gay man, take the reins of Exodus and whip the girly men into shape? Will she publicly skewer Randy Thomas for boldly asserting that Exodus will not take in homos against their will? (As if our woefully fallen and failed wills matter)

Either Timothy has the skinny on what is about to take place at Exodus or perhaps his rant reveals he has Nancy Brown issues he still needs to work out. (Or maybe his is rightfully pissed over the hubris and deception of Brown's proclamations)

I do find it suspect when straight folks, who feel they have been hurt by gay folks, end up working for an ex-gay ministry. I imagine there is plenty of room for a conflict of interest and transference of unresolved conflicts. We saw this at Love in Action with a staff member whose dad came out when his son was just a teen. As an adult, this staff member was still estranged from his dad, and to many of us seemed to have an edge about him that we did not get from the kinder, gentler former homosexual staff.

What? Politics and power struggles in a Christian organization? Tell me it's not so!

kj, shocking I know, but on very rare occasions the ungodly world worms its way into the sanctified Church of the most high God.

Apparently God has called for an official investigation into these political power struggles in "His" church, but the office of the heavenly Ombudsman is currently swamped.

We may have to sort some of this out ourselves.

sorry I missed this post last month.

I wasn't trying to imply that Nancy had recently been given more authority... just that she seemed to have been in charge of writing several of Exodus' FAQ's and other writings.

So, yup, I probably have Nancy issues. But considering that Nancy hasn't yet seen anything unsubstantiated that was vile or hateful that she wasn't willing to repeat... I guess I'm ok with having issues with the lady.
