Canadian "ex-gay" Adverts

Pink News is reporting that a Canadian "ex-gay" advert that promotes the idea homosexuality can be "cured" and that you can go on to live a happy care free hetero lifestyle has been forced off the air.

I've also embedded the video below. The video is produced by 'Life Productions' which is a religious campaign organisation website. On the front page is a 'good test'.

In another part of the site it asks 'Are you a homosexual? Do you know someone who is?'. Click here for the page. For some bizarre reason the intro to the A-team is stuck in my head -maybe you can hire "Life Productions"? Maybe it's the new Mr T advert that is played constantly on Galaxy Radio or maybe I'm just tired. Anyway, I have also posted the A-team theme. Enjoy the videos:
