All conversion therapy really is, is psychological (and maybe some physical) manipulation using shame. That isn't therapy at all but abuse.

Not one credible psychologist or doctor would ever recommend such a thing, that alone should clue you in right there.

The only conversion therapy that might happen is they will convert you in to not having sex any more because they convince you that you're feelings are wrong and you should suppress them because God wants you to.

It's theological snake oil for the mind instead of the body.

Gay is not a disease or an illness it is part of the human condition and completly natural...stop attempting to change which doesn't need to.





No matter how much you and the homosexualists want it to be so, sodomy is not natural.

It is 100% contrary to nature and natural law.

Same-sex attraction is a human disorder, and much like other human disorders, can be treated.


Not an entirely human disorder....there are numerous cases of homosexuallity in the animal kingdom.

Google is our friend....

The concept of natural law is above you.

Sorry.

I'm telling you Courage is there, and it WORKS.


I don't doubt that it bothers you that it is Roman Catholic.


I don't care that it bothers you either.

It is there, and it works - contrary to the cries from the harpies on this thread.
How does it "work"? Please enlighten me on how a church organization with no medical or scientific staff somehow found the panacea for treating a mental disorder that doesn't exist?

What is natural law?

If it's so above me, yet so simple, can you explain it to me like I'm a five year old?

I am also a white man in case that is significant though, unfortunately, I am not religious.

My apologies.


That's what I find so strange about this topic actually. I'm a white non-religious man myself. Middle aged. Hetrosexual and happily with the same woman now for over 15 years.

Yet you and I see this completely different. Total opposites in fact. Why that is is what interests me the most I think.

I would call it "incompatible" with nature and, as an anomaly in the human genome or a product of conditioning is entirely self correcting in the Darwinian sense requiring no intervention.

As was said early on in the thread succinctly and accurately, voluntary treatment cannot be interfered with. It is the forcible "torture" that can be prosecuted as a crime just like any other instance of child abuse, none of which is conducted by the federal government.

I just assumed that you were a railer against traditional culture.

That is my mistake to presume to have any knowledge of your beliefs.

Those who find homosexuality to be morally wrong are, by a large majority, mostly Religious people. Which is surprising, since religious people break several of the Ten Commandments, sometimes multiple times per day. Wish you had a big TV like the Johnsons? Coveting. Look twice at the pretty lady? Adultery. Work on a Sunday? Keep that Sabbath holy.

Nowhere in the Ten Commandments does it say "Don't diddle your same sex buddy". And somehow, the people who most often BREAK those commandments, think themselves to have some moral authority on the topic of homosexuality?!

Please.

Well, supernovae are "natural". That doesn't mean that it is a successful strategy for solar system advancement.

I simply mean that homosexuality does not reproduce itself so, it solves itself.

Interestingly, the only mechanisms capable of lending it longevity through reproduction are cultural mandates to engage in heterosexual reproduction despite the obvious personal preference of the homosexual.

American's are so screwed up when it comes to sexuality it's incredible. We put more effort into commercializing and selling sex than being honest about it while at the same time trying to ban our over sexualized and unrealistic commercialized versions we're selling ourselves.

We hide it while at the same time shoving an unrealistic version of it down our own throats. When it comes to sexuality in Real terms we are completely full of sh*t.

Probably one of the main reasons we have such problems with it when looks a bit different than what we are used to personally. Also why we are so damn violent too would be my guess.

Leave them alone, why would you want to breed animals that don't reproduce?

Actually in social animals homosexuality can serve as a way of diffusing tension and reinforcing social bonds, particularly between males. This may be why it has persisted to be represented at all; further, with human beings so dependent upon cooperation it may be why it is so widespread among our species. Social sex for the sake of social sex (not necessarily just reproduction) is part and parcel to the human condition and it does serve to reinforce social bonds among males and females. Not everything in evolution is directly about reproduction, sometimes it is about the broader success of a species as a whole. There is a difference between a reproductive strategy and a survival strategy, although both are synergistically related.
