Treating perverts is so gay

pervertBritish doctors criticize an American who has helped many homosexuals become heterosexual. I’ve just crossed out some words and added others in italics, to show the absurdity of what the critics said.  From the BBC 

“Plans to promote medical treatment for homosexuality rapists and pedophiles at a religious conference have been criticised by doctors.”

“The event will hear from prominent American psychologist Dr Joseph Nicolosi who said he had helped many people to become heterosexual give up raping and pedophilia.”

“Dr Nicolosi said he had been helping people to “increase their heterosexual potential” for 25 years, and put his success rate among men at about two out of three.  He said he was offering a choice for people who were unhappy being gay.”

“But the Royal College of Psychiatrists said there was no supporting evidence and such treatment could be damaging. What they meant is it disturbs the hell out of perverts to hear that some perverts are unhappy and want to change their life–hell, if some can do it, that means others can, too, and that means they can’t use the “I can’t help it, I was born this way” excuse. 

“Furthermore, so-called treatments of homosexuality rapists and pedophiles create a setting in which prejudice and discrimination can flourish.” 

Said one quack, er, Doctor: “They can’t help it, they were born that way!  What evil creep would discriminate against someone because of their sexual orientation? These people do not need our help, they need our compassion, our understanding, our tolerance. How would you like it if the majority were perverts and they tried to persuade you that you had to give up monogamy and heterosexuality, huh? Sorta like San Francisco does. You wouldn’t feel so good about yourself then, would you? We know what this really is–this is just mean ole Christians trying to jam their morals down the rest of our throats! So stop calling us, er, I mean them, perverts.  If there are morals, and we break them, it makes us feel bad. We don’t like it.”

Dr. Robert Spitzer, a prominent professor of psychiatry at Columbia, dealt the “born gay” movement a major blow last year when he announced that he believed that some homosexuals can change. “Like most psychiatrists,” he said, “I thought that homosexual behavior could be resisted-but that no one could really change their sexual orientation. I now believe that’s untrue-some people can and do change.” Spitzer led the successful charge to remove homosexuality from the American Psychiatric Association’s list of mental disorders in 1973.”

“Nicolosi said that NARTH’s referral list includes 100 therapists–“some of them are religious, many of them are atheistic cultural Jews”–around the country, but said that he believes many more therapists are quietly treating homosexuals. Nicolosi’s latest book, Preventing Homosexuality: A Parent’s Guide, is due out in November. “The father has to be perceived by the son as salient,” he said in summarizing the book’s main point. “Salient has two features, strong and good. . . . It will be controversial.”
