Although I applaud the author's effort to teach homosexualist children to despise themselves, I'm disappointed she didn't bring in the Church's big guns. She should have given the Prophet, Apostles, and other LDS general authorities their own characters in this book.

Imagine how much more the children would have been traumatized if Elder Boyd K Packer had been portrayed as an angry old baboon screeching at anyone who stared a little too long at his big, blood-red "rameumptum." Heck, she could have even had him eat a little homosexualist spider monkey to make sure the kids understand just how much they're hated.

The author also missed an opportunity to expose the real-life wickedness of the world's most homosexualist animals. Sure, I suppose a pair of elephants might get into a little same-sex trunk action ever now and then, but I don't think such acts have been observed by scientists, missionaries, or even home teachers. She should have gone with bonobos or penguins or, better yet, juvenile bighorn rams--they've been observed forming homosexualist herds and licking each other's secret parts. They're a perfect target for a good Elder Packer tongue lashing.

But then, it may be enough that the author provides us with way to instill such virtues as shame, self-loathing, hatred, and bigotry in our children. That's why I'm giving this book four stars in spite of its shortcomings.

It doesn't matter if it's the truth, as long as you really, really, really want it to be. That is the central message of the so-called "ex-gay" movement in general, and this book specifically. The author cares not a whit for science and facts and reality and all that non-gawdly hogwash, and is proud of her ignorance, proud enough to write a book about it. [...]

I read through this book and it amazes me how some people can live in such a state of denial.I can't believe anyone would invest the time and money to distribute the writings of an incredibly delusional and emotionally bankrupt family.This kind of book does nothing but educate ignorant people with the inaccurate,bigoted belief system of a very troubled person and is bad for society as a whole.

Mercifully, I didn't buy this but was shown the text by a friend.

Not only is the underlying concept absurd to intelligent people living in the 21st century, it's not even well-written! Painful, tortured prose seemingly the product of an ill-educated mind.

The author's son has allegedly been "cured" of being gay. One suspects that his story is not yet over, and the ending will be one that causes him much distress...

A hateful book by a hate-filled author. Avoid!

I'm very saddened by this book, and I worry about the kids whose parents will force feed it to them. They'll either grow up to be bullies or self-denigrating closet cases, or both.

Imagine young girls being scared into conforming to "proper gender roles." Or children of either gender being frightened into "prevent[ing] sexual sin like nothing else."

"Chased by a Marauding Elephant" - it's all about fear and loathing for young children.

Long story short, I was in a Walmart with a friend who was being chased by an elephant. I went over to the reference books in hopes of finding something helpful to ward off the angry beast and encountered this book. Unfortunately, it was not helpful at all, just a bunch of claptrap hate speech about being able to 'cure' homosexuality. On top of that, after my friend was trampled by the elephant, I found a much more appropriate reference in a Worst Case Scenario - Caveman Edition book (it was about being chased by a woolly mammoth but I think it would have been useful). I cannot recommend this book.

Although I'm not LDS, the last time I checked, LDS is a branch of Christianity. Having been raised Christian, I'm pretty sure that religion professes deep love and understanding towards other human beings via Jesus Christ's example. Does this book portray this? Heck no! If an LDS wants to believe homosexuality is wrong, they need to keep this belief within their own religion and home.

This is hate speech, pure and simple. In the 1970s, there were still people willing to go on television and publish books that warned against the co-mingling of the races, but their numbers eventually diminished to virtually nothing. This is how books like this should be framed. It's hate speech, it's gradually and finally becoming outmoded, but people can still get away with publishing respectable-looking books about it.
