Controversy swirls over Christian attempts to ’cure’ homosexuality

A controversial conservative Christian approach to gays and lesbians is to frame homosexuality as a disease which can be cured.

To say the least, it’s a disputed topic. Proponents of so-called reparative therapy believe gays and lesbians should turn away from what they view as a sin. Many homosexuals are offended by the mere notion that they have some sort of malady which requires a cure.

    “So-called reparative therapy”? How about the “homosexuality isn’t a choice” theory? The homosexualists try to deny the reality of millions who have turned away from the deadly homosexual lifestyle. NARTH’s position statement: “NARTH respects each client’s dignity, autonomy and free agency…every individual has the freedom to claim a gay identity or to diminish their homosexuality and to develop their heterosexual potential. The freedom to seek therapy to change one’s sexual adaptation is considered self-evident and inalienable.”
