Text:TV3 current affairs programme 20/20 will tonight feature a segment on two New Zealand "ex-gays", recently profiled in a controversial Sunday Star-Times article. Aaron Ure and Jacqui Wyles are both evangelical Christians who claim to have made the decision to become heterosexual, following religious conversion. The 20/20 article was sparked by media interest following the pair's profile in the Sunday Star-Times, which has also prompted a forthcoming article in the New Zealand Woman's Weekly. The Sunday Star-Times have rejected allegations of homophobia and bias in their article on ex-gays, which has since been reproduced with the permission of the newspaper on an anti-gay Catholic website that freely equates homosexuality with paedophilia.
