Phoenix, AZ — Beginning November 1st of this year, the state of Arizona is implementing a mandatory school program designed for all children grades K-12 to help homosexual males and women become straight. The controversial conversion therapy will be used in all of Arizona’s 2,325 public school curriculums and is already gathering a large amount of criticism as well as those who approve of the new program.

Dean Huls who is the brain child behind People Can Change spoke with Fox News about their plan to help all the gay children of Arizona. “Since 2000 ‘People Can Change’ has been helping thousands of children resolve their unwanted same-sex attractions. We bring the gay demons out of these individuals so they can become who god intended them to be. Our success and track record speaks for itself,” Huls said. “Facing the reality that you have unwanted homosexual feelings can cause tremendous turmoil – especially as a child whose feelings conflict with deeply held values, beliefs and life goals. But there is a way out. A path that leads them to resolve rather than fight their homosexual feelings. A path to authentic brotherhood and to our innate heterosexual masculinity.”

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer who signed off on the the ‘People Can Change’ program told CNN she is excited about the program. “I think this will be an amazing opportunity for gay children to finally learn who they truly are for once in their lives,” Brewer said. “Can you imagine how much more productive these ‘now-straight’ children will be not always being bullied or wondering why god made them defective? What we have done here today is monumental. I can only hope and pray that other states follow suit.”

Sheriff Joe Arpaio who runs some of the toughest jails and prisons in the country applauds Brewer’s decision. “Less gays in our jails makes for a smoother running prison system. There will be no more prancing around along with all the other gay activities that homosexuals like to do,” Arpaio said. “More importantly, we as parents can now sleep a little better at night just knowing there will be less gays out there wandering the streets trying to molest our children. I’m excited about this and I know all Arizonans are too.”

Though not everyone from Arizona feels the same way as Brewer and Arpaio. 32-year-old Katherine Morris from Phoenix whose son Daniel is a 12-year-old homosexual said she does not agree with the program. “My son Daniel is one of the nicest boys in the world. He is the most wonderful and loving child you could ever meet in your life. There’s not a problem with him, there is a problem with this conversion therapy,” Morris said. “I urge all Arizonians to fight back before this curriculum takes effect in November. Call your congressman. Call your senator. We still have time to fix this wrong. Tell them we do not want ‘People Can Change’ in our schools! It’s not only a waste of tax payer money but it is fixing something that is not broken.”

The organization ‘People Can Change’ is located in Ruckersville, Virginia and has hundreds of gay-to-straight camps and therapy conversion facilities all around the country. They have been in operation since May of 2000. ‘People Can Change’ can be contacted at 434-985-8551 or by email at lynn@peoplecanchange.com.

National Report attempted to contact the Superintendent of Public Instruction for comment but as of press time had received no response.

    Waste of time, money, and INTELLIGENCE! This is a sick joke, right??? What is this world coming to when we think we should train other people into not being themselves??? Being gay is not a choice… you cannot play with the human heart this way. “Training”… call it what it is at least and that is brainwashing. Who decides what is good or bad for someone else? I am so ashamed to call Arizona my home… Please everyone, let’s get this stupidity away from our children. We have to fight this BS!

  2. Dane says:

    This is faker than fake can even get. A story designed to tarnish our good Governors name. She has better shit to take care of then this crap. Stay “classy” you fucking libs.

  3. Sarah says:

    Wow. This piece is as poorly written as it is ignorant.

  4. Nathan says:

    I’m a gay 18 year old kid and this is a horrible recipe for high suicide rates and runaways. I really hope you all are happy with your head so far up your asses. Why is it so hard for you to accept the fact that people ARE different. You don’t want someone coming and telling you how to follow your unrealistic religion don’t come and try and tell some kid how to live their life just cause you’re not okay with it. God does not say to come and speak on behalf of god. You are not god and should stop trying to fucking act like it.

  5. Tony says:

    Smart move. I hope more states use education to help our kids. We are seeing much success through programs like these and Journey Into Manhood to help this kids see natural design in sexuality.

  6. Tyler H. says:

    “Can you imagine how much more productive these ‘now-straight’ children will be not always being bullied”

    So instead of addressing the problem being the BULLIES, they implement a program based on religious beliefs into a public school system aimed at changing the VICTIMS. Great job at fixing the real problem.

  7. Kristie says:

    Those of you who support this are AWEFUL….

  8. kristen says:

    “conflict with deeply held values, beliefs, and life goals” .. maybe your beliefs, values and life goals .. but it’s not everyone’s. everyone is entitled to their own beliefs. maybe instead of teaching children ignorance and that being gay is wrong in public schools you should teach them that everyone is different and teach acceptance. this is just going to promote more hatred and violence in the world and everyone knows we do not need that. seriously, people need to stop believing that they can change something that isn’t a choice. being gay is no more a choice than being straight, being black, white, asian or anything else. it’s brain chemistry, and no amount of telling you “this isn’t right” isn’t going to change them. they say it works, that’s only because people go back into the closet and hide who they really are because everyone else was telling them that they shouldn’t be themselves. it’s really sad and pathetic if you ask me.

  9. Cassidy Pen Cassidy Pen says:

    Border states are the best place to start this type of thing. Right in the heart of the beast.

  10. sinkslikearock says:

    Wow, paragraph two is very interesting – – and I quote

    “We bring the gay demons out of these individuals so they can become who god intended them to be.”

    Public schools struggled with The Pledge of Alegiance because of “ONE NATION UNDER GOD” – – — yet this is part of their presentation is directly connected to a religious overtone.

    and a few paragraphs down from that one is another zinger “Can you imagine how much more productive these ‘now-straight’ children will be not always being bullied or wondering why god made them defective? “-
    GOD made them defective? Every one of us is naturally, superbly imperfect and wonderful!

    I find this all completely disturbing

  11. Beth says:

    I’m not a supporter of gay marriage but even I find this “program” to be incredibly ridiculous.

  12. David says:

    This is the stupidest thing I have ever heard. I have plenty of gay friends and not one of them “wanders the streets molesting people”. They are some of the nicest people I know. I honestly feel more bad for the people trying to implement this more than the gay people it is being forced upon. You think they will just comply peacefully? Get ready for the fight of your lives.

  13. Joe says:

    “Katherine Morris from Phoenix whose son Daniel is a 12-year-old homosexual ..”

    How can a 12 year old be homosexual?! The mother let’s her 12 year old son have sex with other boys?! Disgusting

    • hetro says:

      yes he should be sent to Arizona to be cured and his mother should be sent to jail for turning him into a homosexual

  14. Justice says:

    “People can change” needs to be shut down and be charged with violation of human rights. You people are worse than terrorist! Stop terrorizing our children!!!!

  15. Sam Adams says:

    Maybe the reason people have “unwanted” homosexual feelings is because programs like this make them feel like it’s wrong. This is disgusting I couldn’t even finish reading this article. If you don’t agree with homosexuality then be straight

  16. Katie says:

    What does someones’ sexuality have to do with anyone molesting anyone? Just because someone is gay doesn’t mean they’re gonna come after ‘your little boy or girl. There are hundreds of straight people who molest the same gender, and vie versa with the gays molesting the opposite. Being gay has nothing to do with molestation, it’s all about the person, not their sexuality. That reason was the dumbest thing ever. I do not support this program at all. Yes, there are some kids who need help finding out who they truly are, and that’s fine, but after a certain amount of time being there and they don’t see any difference in their sexuality, then leave them. They are who they are! There’s nothing wrong with being Gay, but society has to make a big freaking deal out of it! They shouldn’t force anyone into changing who they want to be, especially if it isn’t hurting anyone. The last time I checked, being gay doesn’t mean anything but only being attracted to the same gender. That’s it. It doesn’t mean anything else but sexual attraction. And the reason why there is so much bullying is because of the people they’re around. People are bullied constantly, for every little thing, so why make sexual orientation the biggest thing. Instead of working out with the actual bullies, you’re working out with the gay and forcing them into believing that their sexuality is wrong. And a program like this will make the children feel uncomfortable and unloved, since their’ being brainwashed into thinking that being who they are is wrong! And any parent that supports this should think about how your child might feel. I say just accept the fact that they are who they are, and DO’T FORCE THEM INTO A DUMB PROGRAM WHERE THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THEM OTHER THAN THEIR SEXUAL ORIENTATION. Goodbye, and I hope this shit load is not accepted in the schools.

    This has got to be the stupidest thing I have every heard. See you in the Supreme Court, governor.

  18. Sunshine says:

    That lady is BITCH,,,Gay and lesbian ARE not demon of what that fuck lady thinks…Gay and lesbian is life style with good community, festival and celebration. If you try to change us to be straight…HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. KEEP TRY you bitch. That money SHOULD go to other programs and services rather than use STUPID and worthless and pointless circumstance.

  19. Me! says:

    Oh goodie! YAY! I hope they have straight to gay classes for the children who are struggling with wanting to be gay but inconvenienced with being straight. ^-^

  24. Mark says:

    What us wrong with you America?!!?

  25. Derek says:

    Having any hate for gay people is wrong. And a waste of time, it’s like a rocking horse… It gives you something to do but gets you nowhere. Every life is precious and unique in its own way, and should be celebrated for its difference.

    • hetro says:

      There is no Hate just feel sorry for there disability and would like to see a cure for their illness

    • hetro says:

      its never a waste of time especially the feeling you get after a good gay bashing

      • Lillian Fabricant Lillian Fabricant says:

        As you so wisely point out, gay people do throw wonderful parties, but going to the as a habit will get you a name for yourself as a queer lover, hetro. But who am I to judge? Those parties can be addictive, especially the yummy food. Don’t forget to wear your rubbers, it’s raining men, as they say you party animal you!

  26. trish says:

    I am so thankful to live in Canada and not have to deal with you psycho ass-backwards americans. You should be ashamed of yourselves talking about gay people this way. Who cares of sexual orientation, everyone is equal. Well, except the people who came up with this program, you are pretty much worthless.

    • hetro says:

      even us Canadians don’t like queers Just because they have legalized fag marriage does not mean that the people agree

  27. Michelle Warner says:

    This is disgusting! Who the hell is this old bag to say how people should live their lives? I myself am straight, but am an avid supporter of the NOH8 campaign AND human rights.

  28. Kory G says:

    There your go again, Arizona….being in the headlines for all of the wrong reasons! Jan Brewer, you are scum and ought to be ashamed of yourself.

  29. luke says:

    I conpletely disagree with this.every one has the right to like whatever sex they would like. People like you discuss me.

  30. disgusted reader says:

    I hope parents will band together and sue these self-righteous, self-appointed gods. if I had a homosexual child and someone in the school system approached them about their sexuality, I would be hiring a lawyer. The comments of Joe Arpaio are a pretty good indicator of the level of ignorance of those who believe that homosexuality is wrong. Brewer speaks to that ignorance when she calls homosexuals “defective”. Everyone should be outraged that the schools are interfering to this extent. Soon they will be once again shoving religion down the throats of the victims occupying the desks from 9 until 3–victims who are there to learn math and geography rather than be forced to listen to the opinions of idiots like Huls. And please refrain from calling her plan a brainchild. Call it what it is–a Nazi agenda.

    • hetro says:

      And what is wrong with NAZI agenda? It would have worked the first time round if it wasn’t for those pesky americans

  31. disgusted reader says:

    Is Huls a member of the Westboro Baptist Church? If not, she should go visit them. They would welcome her with open arms.

    This must all be some sort of spoof rather than reality. I don’t believe it can be true.

  32. PhilP says:

    Jesus sheds a tear everytime a homosexual has anal sex with another homosexual so this is a good program. I think Chick Fil A should use their profits to support this program and say so in their advertising so they can become even more bigger and more profitabler and make Jesus happy.

  33. Father Imus McKinney says:

    Jesus cries every time he witnesses homosexual butt sex. This is an excellent program I wholeheartedly endorse. I feel all good Catholics should also endorse it.

  34. A-rod says:

    This is fake. There’s no way they’d announce this publicly.

  35. Meg says:

    Now I want to move to Arizona so I can be openly gay and ignore the programs…. assuming this isn’t shot down before it starts….

  36. Sharon says:

    This is so disgusting. Shame on you Arizona, shame on you.

  37. Laughing says:

    Lol, does anyone else realize that every article on this site is fake?

  38. Liam says:

    Why can’t all you idiots get along?! If you want to be gay do it, but don’t tell someone else that their opinion on homosexuality is wrong, and for you people saying that homosexuals are wrong you are retarded too because everyone has the freedom to think however they like and none of you will ever change that. Finally, say there was a program like this, if you think it’s stupid than you are the most ignorant because what if someone decides they don’t want to be gay, who are you to make them stop trying to be straight? You are all a disgrace, you homophobes and homosexual promoters need to find your own place and let others be however they like. You need to respect each other and stop calling each other out because they have strong opinions

    • Niamh says:

      You do know that that whole comment was quite homophobic, and you failed in covering that up. Like I said before, you can’t change your sexuality. The whole idea of changing it is quite stupid and only idiots think it is possible, or deluded homophobic people. And if someone wants to try, willingly wants to try changing themselves, fine! Go ahead! But do not try to make people who are comfortable with their sexuality, or don’t want to change do the same, which is exactly what this program is doing. Besides, you can’t choose to be gay, or transgendered, you just are, although in your comment you implied that you can choose. If we don’t speak out against homophobia like we did racism (and homophobia is a form of racism) then it will never stop and peoples lives would continue to become nightmares, many will continue to attempt suicide and many will succeed. Think about the innocent people that will continue to be affected if everyone listens to you and follows your example, and see if you will be able to sleep at night knowing that it is partially your fault that many lost their lives to homophobia.

  39. Niamh says:

    Ok, so, this person is kinda stupid. You can’t go from being gay to straight, because people of the LGBTQ community are BORN THAT WAY. Note the words in capitals. You may BELIEVE that that can happen, and you may BELIEVE that you have changed, but all that had happened is a homophobic person has imposed her incredibly stupid and impossible idea upon everyone and some have chosen to believe it. Seriously, there shouldn’t even BE any homophobia anymore, it has been around for years and now it is time for it to STOP. It is like racism – people discriminate against others because of one part of their person, in this case, their sexuality. Yet the very same people often say that racism is bad and wrong – therefore they are indirectly saying that what they are doing is bad and wrong, and are basically being quite stupid, ignorant and prejudiced.

    I have read this article and some of the comments. Filled with hate. How dumb is America? What’s wrong with you in AZ? It’s Faschismus! Really. No doubt! Building psycho concentration camps for trying to change people.
