Bush nominates man who believes in curing gays as Surgeon General

Nomination press release here.

This is what he likes to do in his spare time:

Quote:
...founded Hope Springs Community Church in a warehouse at 1109 Versailles Road. Calhoun called it a socially diverse congregation with a "very vital recovery ministry." It serves the homeless and those with addictions to drugs, alcohol and sex; and it has a Spanish-language Hispanic congregation with its own pastor. [...]

Hope Springs also ministers to people who no longer wish to be gay or lesbian, Calhoun said.

"We see that as an issue not of orientation but of lifestyle," he said. "We have people who seek to walk out of that lifestyle."

Yes, but only by the fact this didn't happen sooner.

By virtue of that position the SG is the leading govt spokesperson on matters of public health. Technically they are the head of the Public Health Service Commissioned Corps.

Hey remember when the SG Elders got in all sorts of hot water for advocating masturbation as a form of safe sex? We can't have that, but we can have someone who advocates "curing" gay people?

OK, but it's not the Health Minister?

Intersting choice. Bush clearly doesn't leave his path.

I do remember that. She came to speak at UConn when I was there and I remember being very impressed with her.

Now this guy...not so much

Oh, a lot of things.
But the difference is, we have mandatory health insurance, free treatment and so on. So it's a state based service for which we need a health minister.
For example, this year there was a big reform of the health system. The problem was that the grand coalition of CDU and SPD watered the reform down so much that in the end it was a huge piece of crap.

Yes, I'm sure they do all they can to "recover" people from that "diversity."
