Christopher Doyle, president of the "ex-gay" group Voice of the Voiceless, has asserted that there is “no gay brain.”

Doyle appeared on the Christian Broadcast Network (CBN) to discuss a press conference held Wednesday on the steps of the Supreme Court seeking federal protection for former gays, or “ex-gays.”

“There's no gay gene, there's no gay brain, there's no gay hormones and so when we know [that] people aren't born gay, then essentially change is possible. And ex-gays like myself and thousands of them out across the country are living proof of that. And today, I'm living my dream, and it's my privilege to help men and women come out of homosexuality through the International Healing Foundation, of which I'm a psychotherapist and director of,” Doyle said on CBN News.

He also stated that other “Ex-Gay” Pride Month events had to be scrapped due to threats of violence his group had received.

At Wednesday's press conference, about 10 people took turns at a podium as others held placards that read, “Justice Kennedy – Protect Ex-Gays!”

“I have been free of the obsession, the compulsion of same-sex attraction for over 40 years,” Douglas McIntyre of Homosexuals Anonymous said.

“I have suffered more discrimination and intolerance as an 'ex-gay' than I did when I was actually in the lifestyle,” said Grace Harley of Jesus is the Answer Ministry. “Many 'ex-gays' are afraid to come out of the closet because of the harassment we receive.”

Chuck Peters of Voice of the Voiceless ended his remarks with a little chant.

“Heterophobic gay activists will stop at nothing to attack 'ex-gays,'” Peters said during his turn at the podium. “They are anti-diversity and anti-pro choice. Why can't I choose who I love? I'm an 'ex-gay' and out and proud. I'm so grateful that I did not listen to the bigoted gay activists and instead listened to real science and my own inner truth, that is that I'm 'ex-gay.' My name is Chuck Peters and I'm an 'ex-queer' and proud 'ex-gay.'”

“Hip hip hooray for 'ex-gays.' Hip hip hooray for 'ex-gays.' Hip hip hooray for 'ex-gays'!” he chanted. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

Also attending the press conference were “ex-gay” activists Greg Quinlan of Parents and Friends of Gays and Ex-Gays (PFOX) and Richard Cohen of the International Healing Foundation.
