Donald Trump hates radical liberal E.T.

In response to the flagship Evangelical Christian magazine, Christianity Today, publishing a post-impeachment rebuke of Donald Trump and a call for his removal from office, Donald Trump bafflingly responded by bashing E.T., the beloved Steven Spielberg movie, which he also thinks is a book for some reason.

"I won't be reading ET again!" tweeted the impeached president, his brain likely mid-hemorrhage.

But if Donald Trump is under the impression that E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial is against him, that begs the question: What other movies does Donald Trump think are out to get him?

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

Donald Trump has heard rumblings of a Jewish coup in Indiana, and while he hasn't been able to lock down the source yet, he has his top men on the case. Here's what the Trump administration has uncovered so far:

1. There is a Jewish man with the surname Jones somewhere in Indiana. Jones is not a traditional Jewish surname, which Trump finds suspicious.

2. Jews are untrustworthy and so are their temples, which Trump's sources have informed him are also called "synagogues." Creepy.

3. Jones is affiliated with a Jewish temple which will bring about "Doom," a concept that Mike Pence frequently references. Mike Pence is also from Indiana. Coincidence? Trump thinks not.

4. Jews love money, so they must love Trump. But white supremacists are also very fine people, and Jews are probably not white. Could this be Jones' reason for starting his Temple of Doom in Indiana? What terrors does Jones have in store for Mike Pence and the good Christian folk of Indiana? Jewish trickery, no doubt.

Back to the Future

Back to the Future Evidence of old man with secret Jewish technology.

Back to the Future and "Make America Great Again" basically mean the same thing, or at least that's what Donald Trump thinks. What liberal trickery is behind this blatant attempt to steal his campaign slogan? Donald Trump isn't sure, but he has top men working on the case. Their discoveries are as follows:

1. There is an old man who built a time machine. Jew?
2. Michael J. Fox is in cahoots with this old man. Michael J. Fox is confirmed to be Jewish. This has deep state written all over. Must investigate further. Also, Michael J. Fox has become younger somehow?
3. Michael J. Fox and the old (Jewish?) man keep referring to Trump as Biff Tannen. Donald Trump has assumed many aliases to lie about himself, but never Biff Tannen. Could Biff Tannen be a new Donald Trump alias from the future?

4. It seems likely that the democrats have funded illegal Jew technology to both make Michael J. Fox younger and convince Donald Trump to change his name to Biff Tannen in the future. Biff Tannen is a pretty cool name, but there's a missing puzzle piece here. Could this possibly be related to Jones from Indiana?

Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi

Return of the Jedi Sneaky Hollywood Jews with Jewish technology.

Those damn Hollywood Jew liberals are behind the coup. Donald Trump knew it all along, but this is the proof he needed. It's right there in writing, clear as day: Star Wars. The Hollywood stars are planning to wage a war against the Trump administration, and they were stupid enough to put it out on billboards. But what is this Return of the Jedi gobbledygook all about? Donald Trump can't figure it out, but he has top men on the case. Their investigation has proven fruitful thus far, revealing:

1. A cabal of Jewish liberal Hollywood stars are prepping for a literal war against Donald Trump.
2. Their leader is a young Michael J. Fox. It is unclear how Michael J. Fox has aged backwards, but there is photographic evidence. Where did the Jews obtain this technology, and how can it be reclaimed for Americans?

Young Michael J Fox How did Michael J. Fox become younger?

3. The Hollywood elites are operating out of a secret Jewish temple, or "synagogue," based in Indiana.

4. Jedi might be a misspelling? Hollywood liberals are dumb. Could it be...Jeb?

Jeb Bush George W. Bush's brother, Jeb Bush, might be the key.

5. Is Jeb Bush involved? This is all starting to make sense.

6. Okay, the Hollywood liberals, lead by young Michael J. Fox, are stockpiling Jew technology at a temple in Indiana. Their goal is to resurrect Jeb Bush's failed presidential campaign, except with a better slogan than "JEB!" which is why they're trying to copy MAGA. They're probably also planning to make him younger, just like they did with Michael J. Fox. They also plan to convince Donald Trump to adopt the moniker "Biff Tannen," but to what end is still unknown. Their ultimate goal is clearly the doom of America, so we'll need to ask Mike Pence more about what that might entail. He's always quoting a book about it, so maybe he can be our secret weapon. Further investigation is required, but this is definitely shaping up to be the greatest scandal in America history, perhaps even more dangerous to our way of life than Sicario 2.

All Conversion Therapy Program Leaders Should Just Come Out as Gay

In an act of stunning (yet predictable) irony, McKrae Game—founder of one of the largest conversion therapy centers in America—just came out of the closet.

McKrae Game spent twenty years telling LGBTQ+ people that they were going to hell if they did not change their ways.

As it turned out, if there is a hell for gay people, he's going to be burning right along with the rest of us.

In 1999, Game founded Hope for Wholeness, which would become one of the largest conversion therapy centers in the country. The organization developed a curriculum that depicts homosexuality as a mental disorder and promises to help people "find comfort and guidance" through "a personal relationship with Jesus Christ," according to the website.

This week, Game came out as gay in an interview with Post and Courier. Raised in a Southern Baptist household, he apparently felt "isolated from other boys,"and during his childhood he developed a "fascination with his sister's clothes." He originally came out at the age of 19, but by 22, he had returned to the closet and began seeking redemption in the eyes of the Lord. In 2017, Game was fired from Hope for Wholeness for watching gay adult films, and last year he began publicly expressing doubts about the organization he helped create.

As of today, he has severed all ties to the practice, and he's expressed total opposition to conversion therapy techniques. "Conversion therapy is not just a lie, but it's very harmful," he said, calling it "false advertising."

This false advertising can have deadly consequences. Conversion therapy has been widely denounced by doctors and professionals, and it's illegal in 18 states. The practice originated with brutal techniques like ice-pick lobotomies, but now it mostly consists of talk therapy and hypnosis, though electroshock therapy and other forms of physical abuse are still sometimes used. These techniques can have detrimental effects on mental and physical health, and its effectiveness is not supported by any conclusive scientific evidence.

Game seems well aware of this. "I was a religious zealot that hurt people," he said. "People said they attempted suicide over me and the things I said to them. People, I know, are in therapy because of me. Why would I want that to continue?" he continued.

"I told people they were going to Hell if they didn't stop, and these were professing Christians! This was probably my worst wrongful act," he wrote in a Facebook post that highlights the deep hipocrisy at the core of religious conversion therapy practices.

Certainly, Game's actions caused unimaginable harm to huge numbers of people. In the true spirit of Christianity, though, he's been largely embraced by the gay community since coming out, and hopefully this revelation will inspire other proponents of conversion therapy to examine their deeper motives.

In fact, maybe Game's decision to come out will inspire other homophobic people and conversion therapy practitioners to come out as queer, or at least it could let them release whatever pain is driving them to police others' lives. It's hard to imagine why people would put others through the trauma and pain caused by conversion therapy, unless they were suppressing a deep sense of shame within themselves. If only all conversion therapy practitioners would just come out as gay.

The idea that homophobes might be gay themselves is actually a popular theory among armchair psychologists in the queer community. There have been a multitude of scandals wherein homophobic politicians and conservatives have come out or were caught in gay affairs, each adding fuel to the fire; and of course, the idea that Mike Pence (who openly supports conversion therapy) might be gay has been a running joke among proponents of human rights.

Although there isn't significant scientific evidence that homophobia is directly correlated with queerness, one study from 2012 did reach this conclusion, finding unusually high levels of homophobia in people who called themselves heterosexual but expressed signs of homosexuality.

While it's tempting to blame bigotry on internalized queerness, it's never okay to force one's ideal sexual preferences onto others. Ideally, we would all be allowed to love who we wish to love and be on our way. But since the straight world has made this impossible, the gay community might be forgiven for hoping that all conversion therapy practitioners will someday come to the same conclusion that Game did.

After all, homophobia, conversion therapy, and other malicious practices that demonize love on the basis of religion all stem from the same sources: deep shame, fear of the unknown, and a desire to control others. Though the idea that love is the answer to everything can feel starry-eyed, in the case of homophobia, it's just the truth. According to Game's Facebook post, "The very harmful cycle of self shame and condemnation has to stop. It's literally killing people!! Learn to love. Learn to love yourself and others," he finished. If only it hadn't taken him so long to learn.
