An excellent article:

A Pharmacist's View on Gay Marriage

A few excerpts:

Having worked with AIDS patients and investigational drug studies for HIV at Johns Hopkins Hospital, I feel a lot of compassion for homosexual persons. But as a professional health care provider, I am compelled to educate people with medical facts regarding same-sex marriage.

This is not a "privacy" issue. Gay activists have brought the gay lifestyle into the public square with their demands for "marriage" or "civil union." (The public has not gone into anyone's bedroom; rather, they have brought their bedroom issues out in public.) "Gay marriage" or "civil unions" will give legal protection and government benefits to the gay lifestyle. YOU, the taxpayer, will be paying those government benefits out of YOUR pocket, so you deserve to have an opinion on the subject and you deserve to be informed about facts relating to these same-sex unions...


Although the secular media, Hollywood celebrities, and groups such as PFLAG (Parents and Friends of Lesbians & Gays) still might make these claims, the medical community has rejected them. Research has shown that the incidence of a homosexual orientation is closer to 2 to 3 percent of the population. More importantly, several research projects failed to find the "gay gene." [1] As a matter of fact, had they discovered the gay gene, then gay marriage would become a civil right, since it would be scientifically proved that a person has this orientation as an "inborn" trait, something that cannot be changed. [2] The gay gene would be the most important piece of scientific evidence to convince you, the taxpayer, to pay government benefits for the gay lifestyle. Had they found the gay gene, you would have read about it in newspapers and magazines and seen it on TV; you would probably still be seeing it every single day. There would be a "test" for the gay gene, just as there are tests for other genetic traits.

So if there is no gay gene, then what causes a homosexual orientation? Most scientists agree that a combination of factors influence it. [3] Interestingly, many people have changed from a homosexual orientation to a heterosexual orientation with and without therapy. [4] No matter what our orientation, we do choose our lifestyle (which is tremendously influenced by what is permissible and encouraged in our culture.) With all of this research, why is there so much confusion?

Prior to 1973, "homosexual orientation" was listed as a diagnosable mental disorder in the DSM-III-R, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association. In 1973, psychiatrists who were members of The American Psychiatric Association took a poll and voted on whether or not to remove "homosexual orientation" from this book of diagnoses. The vote was taken, and by a very slim margin, the vote sided on removing this diagnosis. There was no new information regarding the orientation (i.e., there hadn't been any research to warrant the justification of this action); they simply took a vote. This event initiated the cultural perception that homosexual orientation and behavior is a natural phenomenon and therefore should not be "treated" but should be accepted and even encouraged -- e.g., "out of the closet."

But should the gay lifestyle be encouraged? Health care professionals are familiar with the medical challenges of homosexual men living the gay lifestyle. For you, the taxpayer, to be willing to pay government benefits for gay marriage or civil unions, you should consider what lifestyle your tax dollars will be supporting...


Disease spread in gay/bisexual men is especially problematic because this lifestyle almost always includes multiple sexual partners. More partners means more disease. (Remember, condoms offer little or no protection against the spread of many diseases.) In addition, homosexual men living the gay lifestyle have a higher rate of depression, pornography use, alcoholism, drug abuse and suicide. [11,12] We all need to be compassionate toward those men trapped in this unhealthy lifestyle. But legitimizing homosexual marriage or civil unions will undoubtedly encourage experimentation in this lifestyle. From a medical and ethical perspective, this will have tragic consequences for individuals as well as society...


In recent years, the media has influenced public opinion about the gay lifestyle with emotion, but not with facts. When was the last time you read about the negative consequences of the gay lifestyle, including current epidemiological information about HIV or AIDS in the U.S.? Homosexual women do have different issues from homosexual men. This letter limits the discussion to men because the obvious public health threat from the lifestyle of gay men provides legitimate reasons for taxpayers to form an educated opinion against gay marriage and civil unions...


This is not a "privacy" issue. Without prompt action, YOU, the American taxpayer, will be paying for government benefits for gay marriage or civil unions out of YOUR pocket. Exercise your voice on this issue facing our country right now. Gay activists have used emotion and intimidation to distract us from the facts, and they are depending on taxpayer ignorance or apathy toward this situation to accomplish their goal. We will all live with the consequences of what happens with this issue...

An excerpt from "If all else fails, silence them! Homosexuals seek 'thought crime' legislation"

"... But what really sticks in homosexual activists' craw is Donnie McClurkin, who, they say, on "The 700 Club" "has accused gay Americans of trying to kill our children." Mr. McClurkin, an accomplished gospel singer and author, overcame homosexuality himself. He knows firsthand the devastation, especially among young men, of homosexual sex. So he's more than mildly alarmed at the prospect of activists in schools presenting homosexuality as a normal, healthy activity. Hundreds of thousands of young men have died and many are now taking dozens of pills daily to stave off the effects of HIV-AIDS, hepatitis and other sexually transmitted diseases.

McClurkin's own story is worth hearing. Molested by an uncle when he was a youngster, McClurkin fell into homosexual behavior, but was delivered of this temptation by the grace of God.

Here's the synopsis from McClurkin's book, "Eternal Victim /Eternal Victor":

Remembering and recounting the ordeals of his early childhood, Donnie McClurkin resurrects feelings of hurt and pain that had long been forgotten. He causes himself to reveal the scars of healed wounds, explain how it happened, how he endured and how he and his family came out delivered and victorious. This truly personal testimony by one of Gospel music's favorite artists, shares his tremendous compassion for those who have not received their healing for their hurts, as well as those who are still in the midst of their personal struggles – especially the children.

From the moment he neglected watching his 2-year-old brother only to see him toddle into the street and be tragically killed by a speeding car, to the extreme sexual violation of an uncle who took advantage of his childhood innocence, to his bout with homosexuality, McClurkin candidly recounts the steps he took to turn his life from a victim to a victor.

Better shut him up, all right. And anyone else who dares to challenge the idea that homosexuality is as normal, healthy and good as apple pie.

Homosexual activists cannot win the theological debate, nor will medical science, biology, history or common sense support their deadly, tragic and changeable behavior. So they are reduced to accusing their opponents of "hatred" and silencing those brave enough to speak about the consequences of sexual anarchy on children, the family and society.

Their latest gambit is a federal "hate crimes" bill, passed recently by the Senate, in which 18 Republicans joined the Democrats. The Hate Crimes Prevention Act, sponsored by Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., and Gordon Smith, R-Ore., was an amendment to the Defense Authorization bill, which passed the House without any "hate crimes" language in it.

The word on the Hill is that as soon as conferees are appointed to reconcile differences in the two versions, pro-homosexual Congressmen will introduce a motion in the House to instruct the conferees to accept the Senate "hate crimes" language. Even if the House were foolish enough to pass such a measure, the conferees still could leave the "hate crimes" amendment out of the final version. But homosexual activists could crow that the centerpiece of their campaign had reached critical mass in the U.S. Congress.

If Americans don't want to see "thought crime" invade the nation's legal system, they had better get on the phones to members of Congress. This kind of dangerous bill succeeds when cowardly congressmen think nobody is looking.

The only way homosexual activists can persuade America to validate and enforce their agenda is to suppress the truth about homosexuality. The Rev. Earle Fox, who himself was silenced at the Episcopal ceremony at which openly homosexual bishop Gene Robinson was consecrated, put it this way in a recent letter to the Washington Times:

Honest science and godly love are at one with each other. The aim of homosexual-rights advocates has nothing to do with honest love – it is the public justification and total acceptance of homosexual behavior. If possible, they will coerce this acceptance by so-called hate-crime laws.

But they have sold the public a pig in a poke because they (very understandably) do not want the public to see what it is buying. There has never been a candid, mutually respectful public discussion of the real issue – homosexual behavior – because homosexual advocates cannot afford to discuss such self-destructive behavior in public, and conservatives are almost universally too prudish to do so ...

When that discussion finally happens, as it will, the jig will be up for public acceptance of homosexuality.

So it makes sense for "gay" activists to press for muzzling speakers who might give America a glimpse of what their agenda is really all about. The most invisible people in America are the people who have overcome homosexuality. The "ex-gays" are such a threat to the false, "born-that-way" paradigm that they must be kept off stage.

Sheri Dew and Bishop Keith Butler are threatening enough, but Donnie McClurkin is living proof that lives can be reclaimed from tragic sexual detours.

No wonder they are going to such lengths to keep him out of the limelight..."

ItsOurTimeNow, looks like a pinger. I used to sometimes (as you know!) ping the list to an existing already pung thread when new info or discussion happened. I think this post deserves a read by those on the list.

People *really* need to get riled up. I'm p*ssed about the "hate crimes" addition - and to think it was co-sponsored by the wretch Kennedy and the so-called Republican Gordon Smith churns my gut.

A rare sexually transmitted disease (Lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV)) that is spreading among gay and bisexual men in Europe could be poised to surface in the United States.

Checkout the story here: Rare infection may be risk to gay men in US

The article states: Dutch authorities found that a large number of the men recently infected with LGV had participated in sex parties and unprotected anal intercourse in the year before getting sick.

And, unfortunately: Many also were infected with HIV, the virus that causes Aids.

Yet another reason to discourage homosexuality (behavior), especially in our youth.

The thing about this is, If HIV/AIDS didn't phase the sodomites then this won't phase them either. With the new antibiotic resistant "superbug" viruses out there it's only a matter of time until they bring about something devastating enough to take a toll large enough that the CDC orders a quarantine.

How are they going to do that? How do they deside who's a homosexual and who's not? They are playing with Pandora's box.

Homosexual diseases:

‘Not a simple answer’ for desert’s syphilis problem

"In the year since health officials warned of a growing syphilis problem here, the alarming but easily curable disease continues to overrun the Coachella Valley.

Despite a year of education and testing efforts, Palm Springs alone has a syphilis rate of 81.8 per 100,000 people in 2003, twice the rate of the nation’s No. 1 city for syphilis, San Francisco.

As of the end of August, 73 cases were reported in Riverside County, compared with 78 during the same period in 2003. In both years, most of the cases were coming from the Coachella Valley.

The disease, health officials say, is being spread in the desert almost exclusively by gay men, many of whom are also HIV-positive.

"We’ve considered it being at epidemic levels since 2002," said Barbara Cole, director of disease control in Riverside County and the lead official on the valley’s syphilis outbreak...

Something happened

Syphilis in the United States was in decline across the board in the 1980s and 1990s. According to the CDC, syphilis occurred mainly among heterosexual blacks in the South and in large cities in the 1990s. The incidence of sexually transmitted diseases declined substantially among gay men as a result of a decrease in risky sexual behavior as fears of HIV and AIDS spread.

Then something happened, at least in gay communities. Syphilis started popping up again. First there was an epidemic in the Seattle area in the late 1990s. Then an outbreak in Southern California.

Today, health officials say there is a syphilis problem in several American cities with substantial gay populations -- San Francisco, New York and Atlanta...

The question is why? There are many theories, but no definitive answers.

One of the most common is that gay men have begun engaging in risky sexual behavior because they’ve grown tired of the safe sex message, or are no longer concerned about AIDS..."

'Crystal Meth' Use Boosts STD Rates Among Gay Men

"... Overall, sexually transmitted diseases strike an estimated 19 million Americans a year, at a cost of $15 billion, said Dr. John Douglas, director of the CDC's STD prevention efforts. While many of those infected are heterosexual, federal health officials are devoting much of their attention to what Douglas calls "crescendoing" STD rates among gay and bisexual men.

Syphilis, in particular, is drawing much attention. The federal government had hoped to virtually eradicate the disease during this decade, but an epidemic among gay and bisexual men during the past four years has scuttled those plans...

Experts fear the AIDS epidemic is growing worse because gay men are abandoning safer sex practices, possibly because of "condom fatigue" or a misplaced belief that AIDS is a treatable condition...

An excerpt from: Selling sex in the U.S.A.

"... Alfred C. Kinsey – the universally proclaimed "father of the sexual revolution," the supposedly conservative family man, the objective scientific researcher and amiable academic – was a sexual psychopath.

To begin with, Kinsey was a bisexual who preferred homosexual sex...


Homosexual sex, a generation ago, was widely considered both immoral and pathological. Today it's enshrined as a constitutional right and the hallmark of a new "protected class." Government schools nationwide teach children as young as five that homosexuality is normal – and that disagreeing with this viewpoint brands you as an intolerant "hater." The popular culture always portrays homosexuals sympathetically, and often as heroes. America's bedrock institutions – from its legal system to the news media, from its schools to its churches – are rapidly reversing millennia of traditional values on homosexuality.

One by one, the time-honored sexual taboos of Western Civilization are crashing down with dizzying speed. When the Supreme Court in its controversial 2003 Lawrence v. Texas decision struck down that state's anti-sodomy statute, the court opened the legal floodgates not only to homosexual marriage, but to the total legitimization of all "consensual" sex acts, including bestiality, polygamy and adult incest. Indeed, polygamists have jumped onto the "Lawrence" bandwagon and are pushing to have marriage with multiple partners legalized in the U.S. After all, they argue, their relationships are consensual and they are adults – so what's the problem?...

Believe it or not, even child sexual abuse, rape and incest (which its apologists euphemistically now call "adult-child sex" and "intergenerational sex") are slowly but surely gaining respectability. As far back as 1999, the American Psychological Association, which claims to be the largest association of psychologists worldwide with more than 150,000 members, published in its peer-reviewed journal, APA Bulletin, a report disputing the harmfulness of child molestation. Titled "A Meta-Analytic Examination of Assumed Properties of Child Sexual Abuse Using College Samples," the report by Bruce Rind, et al., claimed child sexual abuse could be harmless and beneficial...

Toddler sex

Warning: The next section is extremely disturbing and involves graphic descriptions of child sexual abuse on which Kinsey admittedly relied in tabulating his "data" on childhood sexuality.

"Table 34" in Kinsey's first report purports to be a scientific record of "multiple orgasm in pre-adolescent males."

Reisman wondered: How did Kinsey and his associates obtain this "research" that infants as young as five months of age enjoyed sex? Child sexual abuse is a felony – how could such research be conducted legally? Why had nobody raised this issue before?

Get ready for a shock. According to Reisman, whose heartbreaking findings were corroborated subsequently by other researchers:

Kinsey solicited and encouraged pedophiles, at home and abroad, to sexually violate from 317 to 2,035 infants and children for his alleged data on normal "child sexuality." Many of the crimes against children (oral and anal sodomy, genital intercourse and manual abuse) committed for Kinsey's research are quantified in his own graphs and charts.

For example, "Table 34" on page 180 of Kinsey's "Sexual Behavior in the Human Male" claims to be a "scientific" record of "multiple orgasm in pre-adolescent males." Here, infants as young as five months were timed with a stopwatch for "orgasm" by Kinsey's "technically trained" aides, with one four-year-old tested 24 consecutive hours for an alleged 26 "orgasms." Sex educators, pedophiles and their advocates commonly quote these child "data" to prove children's need for homosexual, heterosexual and bisexual satisfaction via "safe-sex" education. These data are also regularly used to "prove" children are sexual from birth.

Whoa! Wait a minute. This seems too horrible to be true. You're got to be thinking, "Why haven't I heard about this before? If this is true, Kinsey would have been arrested and locked up. This must be some hysterical anti-sex researcher jumping to conclusions."

Sorry. For the sake of the children "experimented" upon, one wishes that were true. But Reisman is a world-renowned expert and scholar on this subject, has been a consultant to three U.S. Department of Justice administrations, the Department of Education and the Department of Health and Human Services, and is sought worldwide to lecture, testify and counsel regarding fraudulent sex science. She is speaking the awful truth here...

When Harry Hay, who was sexually molested as a 14-year-old boy, read Kinsey's claim that 10 to 37 percent of men have had homosexual experiences, he left his wife and children and began the campaign to legitimize sodomy. He formed the Mattachine Society, urging that homosexuals be regarded as a 10 percent minority class. Hay was the father of the modern "gay rights" revolution that began in the 1960s.

To this day, Kinsey is still the gold standard in sex research. In fact, in the more than two decades since she first exposed the Kinsey fraud in 1981, Reisman notes that the comprehensive Westlaw electronic legal database has cited Kinsey positively around 650 times – "on issues from hate crimes and homosexual marriage to child custody and rape." And the Social Science and Science Citation Indices, she adds, "reference Kinsey roughly 6,000 times over this same period. On the evidence, Kinsey is far and away the most influential sex scientist in the law. Fully 100 percent of the sex science citations in the original 1955 American Law Institute's 'Model Penal Code' cite Kinsey's bogus data on 'normal sexuality' – alive today in courts and legislatures..."

His votaries at the Kinsey Institute got into a lawsuit with Judith Reisman years ago over her sulfurous statements about Kinsey's "oeuvre"......I don't know the exact circumstances or the outcome of the lawsuit, but remarks and testimony, I found (when we were going 'round and 'round with madg and trying to unpeel madg's "onion" references and quote, are often quoted by the gay cabal in detraction of Reisman. I gathered, albeit sketchily, that this was the dustup that brought in Loretta Haroian, perhaps Robert Figlio, and the then-president of the Kinsey Institute, a woman whose name I no longer remember.

Figlio was (is) a bona fide heavyweight in psych, specializing IIRC in juvenile gangs' psychology, but Haroian (now dead) was a sexologist specializing in children's sexual development. Reisman's attack on Kinsey was a professional threat to her, and she was caustic in her assessment of Reisman's work. Figlio had been called in as an outside reviewer (or executioner) of Reisman's DoJ grant report on pornography and its nexus, if any, with violence, so his connection wasn't directly related to her attack on Kinsey.

ABC 20/20 Agrees: Matthew Shepard Murdered During Robbery, Not Hate Crime

The 1998 Matthew Shepard murder, portrayed as a hate crime because Shepard was homosexual, was in fact a bungled burglary and not motivated by hate, according to a new ABC 20/20 investigation, which confirms a MassNews exclusive published at the time.

However, ABC did not reveal that this legend was begun by Pinch Sulzberger (using the power of both the New York Times and the Boston Globe which he had just inherited) to begin his plan of imposing homosexual “marriage” across the entire nation, beginning in Massachusetts.

According to 20/20, the murder set in motion a drive to promulgate “hate-crime” laws to protect homosexuals from discrimination, with the principal proponent being Sen. Edward Kennedy.

ABC has now interviewed the killers, which revealed that the two made a bargain with the court that they would not speak to the media in exchange for an agreement sparing them the death penalty. They are both serving consecutive, double-life sentences.

Shepard was a college student beaten to death by McKinney and Henderson in Laramie, Wyoming.

MassNews re-ran a summary of their exclusive story last Friday, advising all conservative candidates in the future that they must candidly discuss these issues about homosexuality with the voters or they will never win election or re-election.

ABC was timid about going up against Sulzberger’s hoax, saying: “This new information in no way diminishes the importance of the national conversation that took place after Matthew Shepard's murder." Their story is slated to air on Nov. 26.


"MassNews re-ran a summary of their exclusive story last Friday:"

An excerpt from 'Pinch Sulzberger Began His “Hate Campaign” against Normal People in 1988 - The Propaganda of Matthew Shepard'

"... It caused me to research the story of Matthew Shepard. Was the Standard Times accurate in its denunciation of Christian leaders in America? After only a few days of research, it was readily apparent that what the New Bedford paper wrote was a tissue of lies. What had happened to Shepard was a grotesque tragedy, but grotesque tragedies happen to many people every day.

This lie refuses to die because the Boston Globe and its parent, the New York Times, work very hard to keep it alive.

It reappeared again in the Living Arts section of the Globe last Thursday. The front page was almost totally about “folk hero” and “hate crime victim,” Matthew Shepard...

The Truth

The truth about Matthew Shepard is that he went to a bar and left with two psychopaths who were out to rob him. After they robbed and murdered him, leaving him tied to a fence, they returned to town and attacked two other straight men, hitting one of them with a pistol and opening a wound in his head which required 22 stitches to close. They stopped only when one of the others hit one of them with a stick, giving him a hair-line skull fracture.

Although the killing occurred on the 6th of October, it was not immediately reported by the Boston Globe or its owner, the New York Times.

Meanwhile, on October 8th, an organization known as “People for the American Way” (a brainstorm of Norman Lear who became rich from the Archie Bunker and The Jeffersons TV shows) published a ten-page attack against the major Christian organizations which had started a “Truth in Love” campaign about many homosexuals who had been successful in changing their lifestyles.

The “Truth in Love” campaign was characterized as “hate” by the Lear organization. Its headline was Religious Right’s ‘Lying About Love’ Campaign. This October 8 report from Lear was immediately given by them to the major media and all of Lear’s allies.

As a result, on October 10th, both the Boston Globe and the New York Times suddenly began to report this obscure tragedy from Wyoming.

They reported, as Lear recommended, that the incident was caused by the advertisement which ran across the country earlier in the year which said, We’re standing for the truth that homosexuals can change.

This simple statement by the Christian groups, which was buttressed by the truth that many homosexuals have changed their lives, was said to be “hateful” speech that had brought about a climate which caused those two killers in Wyoming to kill Matthew Shepard. It was because of the “Truth in Love” campaign that Matthew Shepard was murdered.

This was obviously a spin that was preposterous but the mainstream media repeated it over and over and continues to do so until this day.

A few weeks after the murder on October 16, the NY Times reported under the headline, Men Held in Beating Lived on the Fringes, that the two men had had serious problems with the law and with mayhem long before Matthew Shepherd came along. Their entanglement with him was nothing new to their disordered lives.

On the other side, there are many stories of innocent boys who have been grotesquely murdered by homosexuals. We have one right here in Newton. Why isn’t the Boston Globe concerned about preventing the gruesome story about little Jeffrey Curley (right in the Globe’s own backyard) from happening again?

Prosecutors say the killers were sexually obsessed with young Jeffrey. They lured him from his neighborhood with the promise of a new bike. When he resisted, they smothered him with a gasoline-soaked rag. The two men molested and murdered the boy before stuffing his body into a concrete-filled container and dumping it in a Maine river.

The story of Matthew Shepard is very sad but why is it more tragic than what happened to 10-year-old Jeffrey Curley? ..."

Gay Activist Serves As Current Head of American Counseling Association

In October, 2003, Mark Pope was elected as president of the American Counseling Association (ACA), a professional organization with more than 50,000 counselors and therapists in the U.S. As the first openly gay president of the ACA, he has worked to advance gay and lesbian interests in the mental health profession. Pope, who currently works as a professor in the Division of Counseling & Family Therapy at the University of Missouri, St. Louis, is also a member of Division 44 of the American Psychiatric Association and member of the Section for Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Awareness in Division 17 of the American Psychological Association.

In accepting his election as ACA president through the end of 2004, Pope noted:

"By a vote of the Board of directors of the American Psychiatric Association in 1973, we [gays] were removed from their 'Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.' They waved their magic wand and we were made 'sane' overnight. Do you understand the power that we, as mental health professionals, have to affect people's lives? We who are gay, lesbian, or bisexual were adjudged mentally ill because of the prejudices of the dominant culture. We who are in the mental health professions have responsibility for that. That is why my election to lead one of the largest mental health organizations in the world is so important. As the first openly gay man elected to such a position, I represent a final and total repudiation of that past."

In an interview in The Advocate magazine (12/9/2003), Pope observed that "When the health profession labeled gays and lesbians as sick, it was based on religious and political prejudices, not on data. There were no legitimate studies that made the case for homosexuality as a mental illness, and that's even clearer today."

When discussing reparative therapy with counselors, Pope says: "I explain the research and the policies the association has adopted. I explain that there is no evidence that conversion and reparative therapies work and that even if they did, what kind of message do they sent to young people?"

Pope also noted: "I come from the Native American background of two-spirited people, which allows us to go against the dominant sexual orientation and gender roles of the majority. That's something the rest of the culture needs to work toward."

He is author of "Crashing through the 'lavender ceiling,' in the leadership of the counseling profession," published in Deconstructing Heterosexism, by Sage Publications.

Guide Me, O Thou Great APA by Warren Throckmorton, PhD

All on the APA's working committee knew the outcome they supported before they started "working." The committee should have been called the Same Sex Marriage & Parenting Advocacy Committee.

Recently the leadership of the American Psychological Association approved resolutions supporting same sex marriage and parenting. In the days since the announcement, many in and out of the association have asked why the APA leadership felt the need to get involved in this contentious issue. Good question.

The APA news release announcing the policy move stated that the leadership wanted to provide "policy recommendations for APA that would guide psychologists in the current public debate over civil marriage for same-sex couples."

Psychologists need guidance? That's laughable.

Guiding psychologists is like herding cats. Children need guidance. Cattle need guidance. Psychologists are not in their offices thinking, "You know, I am so grateful that I know what to think about gay marriage now." I am not buying that at all. While serving as president of the American Mental Health Counselors Association, I observed that many mental health professionals are not content to give advice in the consulting room. Many are closeted public policy wonks. In other words, the APA leadership wants to guide you. Should you trust their judgment?

Q - How many psychologists does it take to change a light bulb?

A - Can't say for sure, depends on the light bulb.

Psychologists are notorious for being tentative. So many in the public may assume the recent same sex policy decisions were the result of a long process of gathering high quality research to reach a broad professional consensus. However, that is not how it happened.

Q - How many psychologists does it take to suggest social policy?

A - 166.

That's not a joke. Many people might assume that the APA membership would vote on such important issues before the leadership would go public with a policy statement. No so. No polling was done of the 150,000 members. Six committee members recommended the resolution to the 160 members of the Council of Representatives and by a show of hands the matter was done. So when APA president Diane Halpern said to the USA Today newspaper that the APA was "going out on a limb" to support same sex marriage and parenting, a more accurate statement would be that the APA leadership had crawled out there without taking into account where the members stood.

Such research on attitudes of psychologists toward these issues has been conducted, but it was ignored. For instance in a 1999 Professional Psychology: Research and Practice article, psychologists were asked in a survey to choose between hypothetical gay and straight couples as a preferred adoption setting. Most psychologists favored the straight couple, particularly for the adoption of a female child.

Another assumption that the public might make is that the psychologists studying such matters would be impartial or at least that several points of view would be represented on a committee. Not so in this case.

The individuals who were members of the Working Group appointed by the APA were all aligned with gay political objectives before they were named to the job. There was no diversity of view or research perspective on this committee. Let that sink in a minute. All on the committee knew the outcome they supported before they started "working." The committee should have been called the Same Sex Marriage & Parenting Advocacy Committee.

A third thing many people would assume is that the process of developing policy on complex and controversial issues would require lengthy deliberation. Not so in this case.

The working group was only convened in February of 2004. They had less than 6 months on task. The short time on the matter may explain why some pretty important studies were omitted from consideration. For instance, the paper supporting same sex marriage did not mention Stanley Kurtz's work on the impact of same sex domestic partnerships in Europe. The paper supporting same sex parenting did not mention a 1996 Children Australia study that compared children of straight married, straight cohabiting and gay cohabiting couples on measures of school performance, and social adjustment. The report by Sotirios Sarantakos found that "in the majority of cases, the most successful are children of married couples, followed by children of cohabiting (straight) couples and finally by children of (cohabiting) homosexual couples."

Even if the APA committee disagreed with the study's findings, they should have considered them. They did not. Space does not permit the examination of other studies unconsidered by the APA committee. This is not the way to develop professional consensus. A professional association that truly wanted to achieve a scientific consensus would have incorporated a much more diverse working group and taken much more time to consider research from all the social sciences.

Better yet, if the APA is really interested in guidance, I have a suggestion. To help the public and fellow professionals really understand the nature of professional consensus on any policy issue, let the membership be polled. Report the results along with whatever committee position is taken, even if there is disagreement.

Let the cats meow, even if they don't do it in unison.

Here's more:

American Psychological Association Endorses Gay Marriage And Adoption

In a press release issued on July 28, the American Psychological Association officially endorsed gay marriage and adoption, and condemned laws in the areas of marriage and adoption that treat heterosexuality and homosexuality differently.

The APA issued a resolution favoring gay marriage, based upon the recommendation of the APA's "Working Group on Same-Sex Families and Relationships." The committee consists of gay activists.

The resolution stated in part,

"... denial of access to marriage to same-sex couples may especially harm people who also experience discrimination based on age, race, ethnicity, disability, gender and gender identity, religion, and socioeconomic status... Therefore, be it resolved that the APA believes that it is unfair and discriminatory to deny same-sex couples legal access to civil marriage and to all its attendant benefits, rights, and privileges."

Members of the APA's Working Group on Same-Sex Families and Relationships are:

Follow-up to reply 108 in this thread:

An excerpt from "Spitzer Study Critiqued In the Journal of Gay and Lesbian Psychotherapy"

A recent issue of the Journal of Gay and Lesbian Psychotherapy was entirely devoted to Robert L. Spitzer and his study, recently published in the prestigious Archives of Sexual Behavior. One author after another, the Journal authors--all gay activists-- devoted their efforts to a critical analysis of the Spitzer study. The opening editorial by psychiatrist Jack Drescher set the tone for this issue of the journal. Drescher couched the malleability of homosexuality as a question central to the "cultural wars," but not to science. And it's the cultural wars, not science, that seemed to occupy center-stage in all the ensuing articles.

Another commentator, Theo Sandfort, suggested that Spitzer should not have published the study at all because of the delicacy of the topic, because the issue of homosexuality is "charged" in cultural debates, and because of the limitations of the study (Sandfort lists his concerns in that order).

Psychiatrist Charles Silverstein, author of The Joy of Gay Sex, devoted his commentary to a scorching criticism of religious-faith traditions, accompanied by accusations of bias in Spitzer's subject selection. Silverstein has a preference for the Shidlo-Schroeder study, which sought to document the harm experienced by some reorientation-therapy clients. The Shidlo-Schroeder study was conducted by researchers who at least initially, selected their participants through an advertisement in gay publications that said, "Help Us Document the Damage of Homophobic Therapies."

An analysis of the media response to the Spitzer study was provided in the Journal of Gay and Lesbian Psychotherapy by Lund and Renna. They offer a "conspiracy" theory of the Spitzer study, noting how "media routines dictate that coverage of scientific issues which intersect with political or cultural ones tend to minimize the science, and focus instead on the political or cultural 'conflict.'" They fail to note, however, that a long series of gay-friendly media stories during the past ten years--stories about "gay genes," "gay brains," and children raised in gay-headed households--has been heralded almost uncritically, on a scientific level, by the popular media as evidence to prove the merit of gay social causes.

Much of the rest of the Lund-Renna commentary is basically a critique of the validity of the ex-gay movement, and an attempt to de-legitimize the efforts of ex-gays to change.

The article in the Journal by Wayne Besen could only be characterized as polemical; such polemics were justified by the journal's editor, Jack Drescher, because they were said to be a "representative sample of the political reception" of the Spitzer study within the gay community.

The commentary is vintage Wayne Besen. He concludes his diatribe with the following:

"In the end, however, the real loser is Dr. Spitzer. Whether he was an over-the-hill stage horse galloping toward the limelight or a court jester hood-winked by a scheming religious right is unimportant.

"What matters is that Spitzer's embarrassing travesty of scholarship will surely go down as his defining work, a professional pockmark that will indelibly taint his once splendid career..."


With the limitations that are inherent to all such studies, Spitzer employed the best rigor available for such research protocols. I am certain that Spitzer would have received accolades from the scientific community had he studied a less controversial topic, employing the exact same methodology as in this study. His sample size was larger than those in previous studies. He was very detailed in his assessment and carefully considered the affective components of the homosexual experience. Any bias in interview coding was virtually eliminated by near-perfect interrater scores. He limited his pool of applicants to those reporting at least 5 years of sustained change from a homosexual to a heterosexual orientation. His structured interview clearly described how the participants were evaluated. His entire set of data is available for scrutiny by other researchers.

Spitzer's conclusions are simply this: based on his study, there is evidence to suggest that some gay men and lesbians are not only able to change self-identity, but are able to modify core features of sexual orientation, including fantasies.

One of the few rational, scientific commentaries on the Spitzer study was offered by Scott L. Hershberger. Dr. Hershberger, a distinguished scholar and statistician, elected to respond in a Commentary to the Spitzer research (Hershberger's article was published in the same issue of the Archives of Sexual Behavior as the Spitzer study was) by conducting a Guttman scalability analysis. This is a scalogram to determine whether or not reported changes occur in a cumulative, orderly fashion.

Hershberger's conclusion:

"The orderly, law-like pattern of changes in homosexual sexual behavior, homosexual self-identification, and homosexual attraction and fantasy observed in Spitzer's study is strong evidence that reparative therapy can assist individuals in changing their homosexual orientation to a heterosexual orientation.

"Now it is up to those skeptical of reparative therapy to provide comparably strong evidence to support their position. In my opinion, they have yet to do so."

What I find most intriguing, and somewhat ironic is that Spitzer did in 2001 what he did in 1973: he challenged the prevailing orthodoxy. He challenged the assumption that "every desire for change in sexual orientation is always the result of societal pressure and never the product of a rational, self-directed goal." In the particular sample he studied, Dr. Spitzer concluded that many participants "... made substantial changes in sexual arousal and fantasy--not merely behavior." Even subjects who made less substantial change believed it to be extremely beneficial.

"Like most psychiatrists," says Dr. Spitzer, "I thought that homosexual behavior could be resisted, but sexual orientation could not be changed. I now believe that's untrue--some people can and do change..."

which is Division 44 of the APA.

Good old division 44, it consists of a very high percentage of homosexual "psychologists". I use to debate madg on this point, I believe the last measurement I made several years ago was that Div. 44 was nearly 30% of self serving homosexuals...I'll bet it's greater than that now.

I remember when they did their research study on this subject. Britt Hume interviewed the lead researcher (can't remember her name) of same sex "families" and asked the question "do children in homosexual 'families' have a greater tendency to practice homosexuality?" After ducking the question several times she admitted that children of homosexuals practice perversion at a rate of 20%...well above the 2% rate of the population. Boy, talk about influence and choice!!!

Follow-up documemtation for replies 121 and 284 in this thread:

An excerpt from "When Activism Masquerades as Science: Potential Consequences of Recent APA Resolutions" by A. Dean Byrd, Ph. D., MBA, MPH

"There is a gay activist group that's very strong and very vocal and recognized by the American Psychiatric Association...there's nobody to give the other viewpoint...There may be a few people...but they don't talk" (Spitzer, 2004).

"Recent actions by the American Psychological Association (APA) have raised questions about its credibility as a scientific organization -- particularly, the resolutions on Sexual Orientation and Marriage, and on Sexual Orientation, Parents, and Children. Under politically correct mantras of tolerance, diversity and civil rights, the leaders of one of America's most formidable mental health associations have taken an additional step toward disguising prejudices as clinical understandings. Following their lead, there may be negative consequences in the future for many state associations.

Activists' Interpretation of the Research

Completely absent from the September issue of the Monitor on Psychology and with only the briefest of notes in the October Monitor, the resolutions on gay marriage and on parenting by gay partners were announced at the APA annual meeting this summer. Rhea Farberman notes in the October Monitor, there is no research that suggests that "same-sex couples should be denied marriage rights" and that a "review of the literature calls for joint and second-parent adoption rights for gay parents" (2004, p. 24)

APA insists that the resolutions are based on the recommendations of "researchers who study same-sex families and relationships" (Farberman, 2004, p. 24).

Consider those who were appointed to the committee: Armand Cerbone who was inducted into the Chicago Gay and Lesbian Hall of Fame in 2003 and was recognized for the distinguished service to the gay movement by the Society of Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Issues; Beverly Green, editor of Psychological Perspectives on Lesbian and Gay Issues, Kristen Hancock who developed "Guidelines for Psychotherapy with Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Clients"; Lawrence A. Kurdek Editorial Board of Contemporary Perspectives on Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Psychology and Candace A. McCullough-- whose partner, Sharon Duchesneau, was artificially inseminated from a deaf sperm donor to make it highly likely that their children would be born deaf because of their belief that deafness is not a medical condition but a cultural identity! (McElroy, 2002).

The committee members were hardly an unbiased group!

What's more alarming is that nowhere did the authors of the resolutions cite the incompleteness of the data, or mention the body of research that points clearly to the shortcomings of the studies.

For example, Lerner and Nagai (2000b), in their comprehensive review of the data on same-sex parenting concluded: "The claim has been made that homosexual parents raise children as effectively as married biological parents. A detailed analysis of the methodologies of the 49 studies, which are put forward to support this claim, shows that they suffer from severe methodological flaws. In addition to their methodological flaws none of the studies deals adequately with the problem of affirming the null hypothesis, of adequate sample size, and of spurious non-correlation" (p. 1).

Baumrind (1995) agrees. "Research findings to date are not definitive, however, because most of the studies are based on small samples of convenience, retrospective data, or self-report instruments subject to social desirability biases. Also few, if any, of the studies have explored theoretically relevant hypotheses concerning adolescent outcomes or used intensive observational and interview methods most likely to reveal possible problems such as identity diffusion or parent child enmeshment" (p. 134).

The APA Committee supported their resolution on homosexual parenting by citing the research of Golombok, Spencer and Rutter as well as Golombok and Tasker. Nowhere did they acknowledge the methodological flaws or the unreported differences. For example, Williams (2000), in his re-analysis of the data of Golomobok, Spencer, and Rutter (1983) and the Golomobok and Tasker (1996) research found a significant number of children to either have considered engaging in a homosexual relationship, or already engaged in a homosexual relationship. There were also significant, but left unreported, differences in self-esteem between children of homosexual and heterosexual parents, as well as significant but unreported differences in social and emotional difficulties experienced by children of homosexual parents.

Even the meta-analysis by Stacy and Biblarz (2001) was given only cursory attention. This meta-analysis repudiated over 20 years of research which had been said to show that there were no differences between children raised by homosexual and heterosexual parents. In contrast, Stacy and Biblarz found that lesbian mothers had a feminizing effect on their sons and a masculinizing effect on their daughters. They report: "...the adolescent and young adult girls raised by lesbian mothers appear to have been more sexually adventurous and less chaste...in other words, once again, children (especially girls) raised by lesbians appear to depart from traditional gender-based norms, while children raised by heterosexual mothers appear to conform to them" (p. 171).

Of particular concern was the Committee's reliance on the research of Charlotte Patterson whose studies were questioned and subsequently excluded from a Florida Court. The Court concluded:

"Dr. Patterson's impartiality also came into question when prior to trial, she refused to turn over to her own attorneys copies of documentation utilized by her in studies. This court ordered her to do so (both sides having stipulated to the Order), yet she unilaterally refused despite the continued efforts on the part of her attorneys to have her do so. Both sides stipulated that Dr. Patterson's conduct was a clear violation of this Court's order. Her attorneys requested that sanctions be limited to the exclusion of her personal studies at trial and this Court agreed to do so.

"Dr. Patterson testified as to her own lesbian status and the Respondent maintained that her research was possibly tainted by her alleged use of friends as subjects for her research. This potential was given more credence than it should have been by virtue of her unwillingness to provide the Respondent as well as the Petitioner, with the documents ordered to be produced" (1997, JUNE AMER, Petitioner v Floyd P. Johnson, p. 11)...


Science, Not Activism, Must Guide Resolutions and Policy

Scientists are not immune from the political and cultural debates, but they must assure that any official declarations, resolutions or policies are anchored to the most extensive scientific research available. Kitcher (l985, p. 3) noted that "when scientific claims bear on matters of social policy, the standards of evidence and of self-criticism must be extremely high." APA must mandate that all statements or resolutions endorsed are subject to review and intense scrutiny, and that a balanced discussion is facilitated among all professionals and members.

Williams has noted that

"Social scientific research can provide useful information and evidence in support of important public policies, but it must be of the highest quality in its design, instrumentation, and conceptual rigor.

"At the same time, such empirical research can never provide ultimate justification for decisions and policies that are essentially moral and reflect our deepest values.

"In the final analysis, the justification must derive from our vision of the highest and most noble things of which we as cultures and individuals are capable. If this vision is worthy, we ought not be timid about confronting the issues and seeking support for the vision in the research area" (p. 355).

No scientific organization can provide any resolution or policy statement based on scientific research that is tainted, flawed and inconclusive without breaching the trust of the general public. For APA to retain its credibility as a scientific organization, science must be separated from activism.

Dr. Robert Perloff, former President of the American Psychological Association, criticized APA for pandering to special interests groups: "The APA is too politically correct...and too obeisant to special interests" (Murray, 2001, p. 20).

Indeed, the evidence is clear that in the case of the APA resolutions on homosexual marriage and parenting, APA has indeed catered to as small but vocal special-interest group and has allowed activism to masquerade as science..."

An excerpt from "School's Out -- Will the Rainbow Bus Take Our Kids to the Land of Diversity?"

Caution: This article contains graphic descriptions that some may find offensive.

By Ed Vitagliano
October 7, 2004

(AgapePress) - Transvestite teachers. Boys kissing boys in restrooms. Teens taught about anal sex. "Gay" fairy tales for children. Could these things actually become a reality in our public schools? The speed of change in our society thus far, driven by resolute homosexual activists, indicates that the answer is most assuredly yes.

In case some people think such projections about the future are a hunk of homophobic hooey, they might want to consider the fact that, in some parts of the country, these things are already happening.

So what changes can be expected, and what would life in our public schools be like if homosexual activists win the culture war? The following are predictions based on current trends.

Entrenchment of 'Gay' Viewpoint
For more than three decades, activists have been demanding that the public school system be enlisted as a primary engine in the effort to normalize homosexuality.

In their 1972 Gay Rights Platform, activists meeting in Chicago, Illinois, demanded "[f]ederal encouragement and support for sex education courses, prepared and taught by gay women and men, presenting homosexuality as a valid, healthy preference and lifestyle as a viable alternative to heterosexuality."

Similarly, in their 1993 March on Washington, DC, activists demanded that such radical instruction be taught on "all levels of education" -- federal, state and local, grades K-12.

Support for the homosexual agenda is already solid throughout the professional education organizations, such as the National Education Association, American Federation of Teachers, American Association of School Administrators, and the National Association of School Psychologists.

The National Parent Teacher Association (PTA) has also made it clear that it supports the normalization of homosexuality within the public school system. In 1999, for example, National PTA President Ginny Markell said her organization would be making available the video That's a Family!, which embraces same-sex families, as part of a nationwide effort to fight discrimination against homosexuals.

At its 2004 conference in Anaheim, California, the National PTA partnered with Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG), a pro-homosexual group, to cooperatively present a workshop that instructed educators about how to promote homosexuality in public schools.

Across the nation, outside homosexual pressure groups are constantly pushing schools to create an environment in which the "gay" lifestyle is celebrated.

Perhaps the most effective of these groups, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), says it has almost 70 chapters throughout the nation. The group claims on its website that, by the end of the 2002-2003 school year, 1,864 student clubs -- called "Gay-Straight Alliances" -- had registered with GLSEN.

Other projects, such as the controversial videos It's Elementary and That's a Family!, have been instrumental in instructing public school administrators and faculty how to teach children of all ages about homosexuality. It's Elementary, for example, has been acquired by nearly two thousand educational institutions across the country.

As sympathy for the homosexual agenda becomes embedded in the nation's public school systems, the changes promise to be dramatic. Linda Harvey of Mission America, a pro-family group, predicts that: "School literature will be adapted to reflect a positive view of the homosexual family as a future option for every child. Josh will learn that he can grow up and marry a girl or a boy. And since at age six he probably hasn't yet discovered his sexual 'identity,' the fair thing will be to present all angles to him in language, health, music and social studies..."

Study Indicates Gays and Lesbians Prone To Psychological Symptoms and Substance Abuse -- But School Harassment Rates Not Higher for Gay Males

"The findings of a study published in the British Journal of Psychiatry (December 2003) suggest higher incidences of illegal drug usage, alcoholism, psychological problems, and violence in the gay community than in the general population...

But bullying at school, the study noted, was reported no more often by gay men than by heterosexual men. Reports that gay men and lesbians are disproportionately vulnerable to school harassment "are often taken at face value," the researchers noted, with researchers failing to draw a comparison to heterosexual students, who--at least in this study--were found to suffer similar high rates of school bullying and harassment..."


New Study Confirms Higher Level of Psychiatric Disorders Among Men and Women Engaging in Same-Sex Behavior

"Two recent studies published in the Archives of General Psychiatry found higher rates of psychiatric disorders among homosexually oriented men and women than among the heterosexual population (Herrell 1999 & Fergusson 1999). Those articles mentioned that a third study, not yet published, had confirmed their findings."


Same-Sex Sexual Behavior and Psychiatric Disorders

Arch Gen Psychiatry. 2001;58:85-91

Background It has been suggested that homosexuality is associated with psychiatric morbidity...

Results Psychiatric disorders were more prevalent among homosexually active people compared with heterosexually active people.

Conclusion The findings support the assumption that people with same-sex sexual behavior are at greater risk for psychiatric disorders.
