Homosexuals often claim their disease is normal, or that they were born that way. Pedophiles make a similar claim, that they too are born that way. Many people are born with birth defects and other issues, being born a certain way does not make them normal.
A study based on interviews with 200 men and women who have switched their homosexual preferences demonstrates “gays” are capable of becoming “predominantly” heterosexual through psychotherapy.
“In some of the subjects, the reports of change in sexual orientation were substantial, credible and believable,” said Robert Spitzer, the professor of psychiatry at Columbia University in New York who conducted the study.
“The subjects’ self-reports of change appear to be, by and large, valid, rather than gross exaggerations, brain-washing or wishful thinking,” Spitzer said in a summary of his analysis, according to the Washington Post.
Spitzer’s research has been republished in the current issue of Archives of Sexual Behavior.
The 200 subjects, mostly from the U.S. and Canada, participated in “self control” therapy which entailed avoiding tempting situations, stopping erotic thoughts from developing or mixing socially with straight men and women in non-sexual situations.
According to the findings, all 143 men and 57 women claimed the therapy altered their view of the same sex to some extent. All reported maintaining the change for at least five years.
“The current, politically correct view is that this therapy never works. I think it doesn’t work a lot of the time but in some people it does,” said Spitzer. “I do believe that people who are bothered by their homosexuality have a right to have this therapy.”
Spitzer is considered an authority on the subject. In 1973, he was instrumental in having homosexuality removed from the American Psychiatric Association’s list of mental illnesses. He maintains most homosexuals are happy with their sexual preference, but a minority are not and seek to change.
Critics of “reparative therapy” pan the study as flawed and argue the technique is only effective in getting people to resist their instincts.
“This study provides evidence that some gay men and lesbians are able to also change the core features of sexual orientation. Almost all of the participants reported substantial changes in the core aspects of sexual orientation, not merely overt behavior,” he said.
This could be helpful to children because a number of studies performed over a period spanning more than half a century — many of which were performed by homosexuals or their sympathizers— have shown that an extremely large percentage of sexually active homosexuals also participate in child sexual molestation. This is not “homophobia” or “hatred,” this is simple scientific fact….”
