Wal-Mart Hawks Ex-Gay Kids Book

More than 100 Wal-Mart stores are selling a book for kids and parents that suggests gay people can overcome “sin” and revert to heterosexuality with the help of counseling. Chased by an Elephant: The Gospel Truth about Today’s Stampeding Sexuality is written by Janice Barrett Graham, whose husband Stephen runs the antigay group Standard of Liberty.

More than 100 Wal-Mart stores are selling a book for kids and parents that suggests gay people can overcome “sin” and revert to heterosexuality with the help of counseling, according to Q Salt Lake.

Chased by an Elephant: The Gospel Truth about Today’s Stampeding Sexuality is written by Janice Barrett Graham, whose husband Stephen runs the antigay group Standard of Liberty.

In the book’s introduction, Graham says she wrote the book to “help shed the clear light of truth on today’s dark and tangled ideas about male and female, proper gender roles, the law of chastity, and the God-given sexual appetite.”

Graham’s son Andrew claims he successfully changed his sexual orientation and is now a happily married man. In his book Captain of My Soul, Andrew Graham writes that he was “lured into same gender internet pornography during his high school years, and recruited into cursory homosexual experimentation with older men while at Brigham Young University.”

For the last two years, Wal-Mart has scored just 40% on the Human Rights Campaign's Corporate Equality Index.
