Religion and homosexuality
"Ex-gay" advertisements in newspapers & on TV
The battle for the minds of North Americans on the topic of sexual orientation has not really a conflict of lesbians, gays, and bisexuals vs. heterosexuals. It is mainly between religious conservatives and the rest of society.
During the late 20th century, conservative Christian groups sponsored newspaper and TV ads in an attempt to convince the public that homosexual orientation is a choice that can be readily changed through trusting Jesus as Lord and Savior and/or by reparative (a.k.a. conversion) therapy or the efforts of transformational ministries.
