And then goes on to bash gay activists as scheming thugs. — Anti-gay/exgay therapist, Christopher Doyle of The International Healing Foundation, recently penned an op-ed in the Christian post. These feelings [same-sex attractions (SSA)] are the result of many factors, mostly environmental and familial, mixed-in with one genetic factor, a sensitive temperament. [emphasis added] Anti-gay/ex-gay activists often claim […]
Mike Davidson, leader of the Northern Ireland-based Core Issues, has again misrepresented the reasons why he was dismissed from the British Psychodrama Association. The ex-gay therapist, whose group effectively promotes the work of NARTH in the UK, has complained before that his membership was revoked without a hearing. In his latest missive, to the Organisation […]
NARTH co-founder Joseph Nicolosi has called on Exodus International head Alan Chambers to take back criticisms he has made of reparative therapy. In particular, Nicolosi, the chief theorist and practitioner of reparative therapy, took exception at the following remarks, which Chambers made on Facebook: As for Reparative Therapy, I do not support it. I don’t […]
Ex-gays in the UK will go on the offensive later this month when they launch an ad campaign subverting a well-known pro-gay slogan. But its conservative Christian organizers come with a notorious reputation for promoting pseudoscience and extreme homophobia. The words “Not gay! Ex-gay, post-gay and proud. Get over it!” will appear on the sides […]
For a decade, ex-gays have relied on the results of a 2001 study to prove their claim that “change is possible.” But if they continue to promote its flawed research, they will do so only in the knowledge that its author, psychiatrist Robert Spitzer, has now publicly disowned it. In an article in the May issue […]
The National Association for the Research and Therapy of Homosexuality has announced the death of its former president, Dr A Dean Byrd. A member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Byrd was the foremost proponent of reparative therapy among Mormons, and as a leading member of NARTH he was, according to […]
The National Association for the Research and Therapy of Homosexuality is now the “main source of anti-gay ‘junk science,’” according to a new report by the Southern Poverty Law Center. “But even as NARTH is held up as an authority on the science of homosexuality by both fringe groups and politically potent national organizations like […]
Ex-gay Andy Comiskey says that being gay is about self-absorption and lack of self-restraint — but gays can change. In an interview with reparative therapist Dr Joseph Nicolosi, of NARTH, Comiskey says he can’t help but see gay activists as conflicted. They are denying their God-given selves, he says, and efforts to promote same-sex marriage […]
A number of British conservative evangelical leaders have written to the Daily Telegraph to express their support for Lesley Pilkington, the Christian therapist found guilty of professional malpractice for offering a “gay cure” to an undercover journalist. Lord Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, is among the 70 signatories of the letter. Also joining him are […]
A conference taking place in Belfast, Northern Ireland, today offers ways for conservative Christian churches to minister to “the lepers among us” — namely, gays and lesbians, or those who “struggle with same-sex sins.” Astonishingly, Core Issues, which organized it and an identical conference taking place in London, England, tomorrow [correction: next week], failed to […]
