London bans 'gay cure' ads from buses

Advertisements suggesting a cure for being gay were banned Thursday from running on London buses, British media reported.

The ads by Christian groups Core Issues Trust and Anglican Mainstream said, “Not gay! Ex-gay, post-gay and proud. Get over it!” The words implying that people can get over being gay were scheduled to run for two weeks on 25 buses beginning next week.

The campaign was developed in response to gay-advocacy group Stonewall’s 1,000-bus equal-marriage campaign that began April 1. Its ads boast "Some people are gay. Get over it."

The Christian groups used the same black, red and white color scheme as Stonewall.

Note they copied the Stonewall ads...not only ignorant, but totaly without creativity!
