Lawyers take note:

Our counselors are “biblical counselors” not “professional clinical counselors” and are clearly identified as such in descriptions of our programs. Our counseling follows a pastoral model based on our closely held religious beliefs and is, therefore, expressly excluded from regulation and licensing requirements of The Kentucky Board of Licensed Professional Counselors.

That's the official statement of Pure Life Ministries - the "pray away the gay" ministry that took in James Stabile. They also deny that they told James to throw away his medication (he's bi-polar). Everyone reacting to the saga now has to take things with a grain of salt because of James' pathology and consistent lying.

The whole thing still smells bad. James' father, Pastor Joseph Stabile, has asked people to put it to rest and let the family heal.

Can we?
Should we?
