Gay to Straight Therapy Rejected by Psychologists

by Ben Cohen

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.

Instead,

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.

In

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.
