London's mayor has axed an ad campaign spearheaded by two conservative Christian groups because their ads said homosexuality was a disease that could be cured through prayer, the Religion News Service reports. The groups, Core Issues Trust and Anglican Mainstream, who both fund reparative therapy for ex-gays, made posters reading "Post-gay and proud. Get over it!" -- mimicking a recent campaign by the gay-rights group Stonewall, which used the line "Some people are gay. Get over it" -- and had planned to put them on the sides of London's iconic double-decker red buses beginning April 16. However, mayor Boris Johnson stepped in to ban the ads. "It is clearly offensive to suggest being gay is an illness someone recovers from," he said. "And I am not prepared to have that suggestion driven around London on our buses."
