Bush Supreme court Nominee Miers & 'Exodus Ministries'

Important information (see below) received based on Bush's recent speech (yesterday) praising Harriet Miers, The President's Supreme Court nominee. It appears that Ms. Miers supports a group that tries to convert Gays to Straight using methods that have been criticized by mainstream therapist and psychiatrists and goes counter to research that shows that Lesbian and Gays do not benefit from this type of homophobic motivation or method. I had a bad feeling about this nomination. Bush says he is sure Ms. Miers will stay very conservative on all the hot button issues they like and I think Bush's opinion is warranted. The only choice would have been for him to put in someone who has a better track record of opposing privacy rights and religious monopoly on our lives.

Subject: Miers Anti-Gay, Exodus pro bono work

This morning When President Bush announced the Nomination of Miers to the Supreme Court the press overlooked a huge Anti-Gay factor, Exodus International.  Bush said:

 "She led by example. She put in long hours of pro bono work.

Harriet Miers has given generously of her time and talent by serving as a leader with more than a dozen community groups and charities, including the Young Women's Christian Association,

Childcare Dallas, Goodwill Industries, Exodus Ministries, Meals on Wheels and the Legal Aid Society." 

For those who are not aware according to its own website ( Exodus is a nonprofit, interdenominational Christian organization promoting the message of "Freedom from homosexuality through the power of Jesus Christ."

We should be very worried about Bush's Anti-Gay Nomination of Miers to the Supreme Court!
