"Together, we must continue to proclaim the truth--because there remain many men and women who need that truth to set them free." That was the message delivered on Friday by FRC's Peter Sprigg in an address to the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH).
NARTH is a scientific organization which defends the right to seek psychological care for unwanted homosexual attractions, and the right of therapists to provide care directed at changing a person's sexual orientation from homosexual to heterosexual if the client desires it. Unfortunately, these freedoms are under attack by homosexual activists who seek to persuade people that change is impossible, that efforts to change are harmful, and that homosexuality is harmless.
NARTH has produced an outstanding new resource, the first volume of its Journal of Human Sexuality, which thoroughly debunks all three of these claims by proving that changing is possible, change efforts are not harmful, and that homosexually active people suffer higher rates of many pathologies.
Peter linked these findings to the public policy debates on homosexuality, pointing out that since homosexual conduct is not inborn, involuntary, immutable, or innocuous, it should not be treated like race or sex. Research alone may not settle these debates--but we should be highly skeptical of the homosexual movement, because it rests on a foundation of lies.
