This story keeps getting worse.

Zach is a teenager that posted a blog about his parents sending him to a Christian camp meant to show him the errors of his "gay" ways. Are there no lengths these christian activists won't go?

SUMMARY: The father of "Zach," a gay teen who stated on his weblog that he was sent against his will to a camp to change his sexual orientation, has come forward to defend his actions.
The father of "Zach" -- a gay teen who sparked outrage after stating on his weblog that he was sent against his will to a camp to change his sexual orientation -- has come forward to defend his actions.
In an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, Joe Stark ended speculation about whether the 16-year old, known on his blog simply as "Zach," actually existed. The PlanetOut Network verified Zach's identity last month but did not disclose his last name or hometown to prevent unwarranted attention on the youth.

That father should be arrested for emotionally abusing his child and then sent to a re-education camp himself to de-program his brain-washed christian idiocy.

This poor kid... Does anyone know where he is now? By my count of the calendar, he should have been home by now. Has anyone heard from him?

There used to be cult-rescue groups that would rescue kids, especially, from cult compounds. Are there any still around?
