Gay to Straight Therapy Rejected by Psychologists

The APA validates what every sane person knows. That people are born gay, and cannot 'switch' through therapy. From the AP:

The American Psychological Association declared Wednesday that mental health professionals should not tell gay clients they can become straight through therapy or other treatments.

the APA urged therapists to consider multiple options — that could
range from celibacy to switching churches — for helping clients whose
sexual orientation and religious faith conflict.

a resolution adopted on a 125-to-4 vote by the APA's governing council,
and in a comprehensive report based on two years of research, the
150,000-member association put itself firmly on record in opposition of
so-called "reparative therapy" which seeks to change sexual orientation.

The 'Moral Majority' will no doubt reject this, just as they reject the theory of evolution, the existence of global warming, and the utter failure of free market capitalism.
