    I've long held the belief that homosexuality is not a mental disorder. I've also believed that denial of one's homosexuality and feelings of shame towards being gay can easily lead to mental disorders.

    @Amos777 Jesus never mentions homosexuality at all in the Bible. This is false. You need to read your book a bit better and stop reading into passages from it. Talking about the beauty of marriage by no means condemns homosexuality.

    according to every medical association worldwide homosexuality is NOT an illness of any sort. maybe it's time you actually do some research rather than relying on your own fears and hatred to figure things out.

    @Amos777 Obviously you have no knowledge about the subject.
    I would assume you never had a serious talk with a homosexual.
    Your ignorance is showing. I would suggest you educate your self.

    The governor nor anyone else who thinks it's ok to butt into parent's choices of rearing their children, are not the ones who lay on the table in the labor or delivery room Why they think they should dictate how the parents can or can not rear thier child is like Hitler. Remember how he made the boy children old enough to be in his little worship team? I know there was a name for them but it's gone right now.

    the liberals are more and more trying to take over every aspect of our lives.

    Sorry I voted you up in error.
    But I don't believe the government should allow child abuse.
    If you are abusing your children, I hope the government steps in.

    @Wilberhum
    Since the post didn't mention anything about child abuse, I didn't see the need to address it. I'm one of the biggest opponents of those who abuse children or anyone who is more helpless than the abuser. It happened to me and my siblings as children and I will not remain silent if I see it happening even with complete strangers. I have turned them in before, in spite of thier threats to me. I knew I was not in any danger because I was an adult and could get her back.

    Shall we also ban quack therapies for addictions to drugs and alcohol? What about dangerous fad diets promoted by best-selling books? How much of a nanny state do we want to have?

    Seems to me if the American Psychological Association thinks these therapies are bogus, they can ban from membership any therapist who practices them. Then if you choose to hire a therapist who's banned from the APA, that's pretty much your own stupidity, just as if you hired an unlicensed plumber.

    Once again the government oversteps it's authority . Pretty soon parents will hand over their kids at birth,(head start) and they will be indoctrinated til adulthood when they will be good little goose stepping liberals.
    If parents want to waste their money on "Gay cures" that don't work that should be their choice!

    Under that theory, you could justify most child abuse. That is all this anti-gay "therapy" is--mentally (and sometimes physically) abusing a child to be what you think they should be instead of what they are. It's ironic that you refer to indoctrination and goose-stepping, since that is exactly what those parents are doing to their kids.

    I can't think of any other case where legislators have attempted to ban a specific quack therapy. The only reason this is happening is that once again, homosexuals are considered a protected class with more rights than the rest of us.

    Psychology and psychiatry were politically manipulated by communist/socialist agents in the Soviet Union to discredit or punish political and religious dissidents.

    The American Psychological Association has come to be a political tool for those who wish to indoctrinate adults and children alike in perverse practices. In this way it is already attempting to discredit Traditional Christianity.

    The following two articles are from Wikipedia:

    Suppressed research in the Soviet Union

    Suppressed research in the Soviet Union refers to scientific fields which were banned in the Soviet Union, usually for ideological reasons. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suppressed_resea...

    Political abuse of psychiatry in the Soviet Union

    Soviet psychiatric hospitals known as "psikhushkas" were used by the authorities as prisons in order to isolate hundreds or thousands of political prisoners from the rest of society, discredit their ideas, and break them physically and mentally.

    Political abuse of psychiatry is the misuse of psychiatric diagnosis, detention and treatment for the purposes of obstructing the fundamental human rights of certain groups and individuals in a society. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Political_abuse_...

    From Science Discovery: Controlled Offensive Behavior — USSR (U)

    Prepared by U.S. Army Office of the Surgeon General Medical
    Intelligence Report - July 1972

    Controlled offensive behavior as defined within the scope of this report includes Soviet research on human vulnerability as it applies to methods of influencing or altering human behavior. There is an ever increasing amount of information emanating from the USSR (samizdat or underground press) that suggests that certain authoritarian institutions in the USSR are engaged in the practice of "mental reorientation" of numerous individuals who are classed as political dissenters. http://science.discovery.com/tv/dark-matters/...

    From Family Security Matters - May 30, 2012:

    New Bill Targets "Psychological Operations" at U.S. Citizens
    An amendment that has been added to a new defense bill in Congress would make it legal to target propaganda and "psychological operations" directly at U.S. citizens. The latest version of the National Defense Authorization Act would overturn the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 and the Foreign Relations Authorization Act of 1987. Those two laws essentially make it illegal for propaganda that is used to influence public opinion overseas to be targeted at U.S. citizens back here at home. If those two laws are struck down, there will be essentially very few limits to what the U.S. government can do to shape our opinions. http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publicat...

    It's about time these VooDoo treatments go the way of their predecessors: lobotomies, involuntary sterilization, and leeches.

    This not a legal issue. This is not child abuse. This is parents trying to right the wrongs that they believe society has perpetrated on their children. Again, this is not the governments business.

    Of course I support the ban on "gay cures". They are cruel. They only serve to make people so ashamed they deny who they are. They are never, ever "cured" of being gay. That would be like saying you were cured of being Japanese or having brown eyes.

    It is purely a religious bullying technique that garners more church members out of fear and hatred of oneself after the "cure" is put in place.

    It is shameful and irrational. It has no positive psychological advantages for the gay person. It has no basis in sound psychology. It has no place in America.

    The goverment needs to stay out the way people raise their children. As long as they are not starving, beating, (this does not include spanking) or neglecting them.

    Locking children in the basement and never letting them out is 'not starving, beating,(this does not include spanking) or neglecting them'.
    So I guess you are all right with that.

    @Wilberhum Locking them in a basement and not letting them out would be neglectful. I might be wrong but I did not read that in the story I read.
  • #55

    @Jack-Black By no means would it necessarily be neglectful.
    Homosexuality is not an illness. It is a natural occurring condition in many different species. Educate your self.

    @Wilberhum I never said homosexuality was an illness. I believe almost all "Gays" are born that way, however just because i believe it does not mean others should have to. The goverment needs to stay out of the way parents raise their children.

    Am I the only person with the balls to say that maybe we should prove that homosexuality is not a psychological issue before we go full throttle advocating people embrace alternative lifestyles that lead to higher depression, drug use, and suicide rates, statistically speaking?

    What's next is my question. Will parents be forced to allow their kids to have sex with dogs, cats and the like? The direction this world is headed, bestiality will next on the "not a mental problem list"!
  • #294

    Children should have at least some basic rights. The ignorance of some parents should not be forced on these children. Can we send these parents to cure their ignorance instead :)
  • #293

    No I do not. As someone who has worked in the mental health industry reparitive therapy offers hope to those who do not want to be gay. www.narth.com has paved the way to getting Homosexuality classified again as a mental illness.
