Hi good friends
I have never sent an e-mail like this, but I just had to. Those of you who have children or grandchildren MUST hear this. All of you have a sphere of influence that goes wide so PLEASE do something about this e-mail and expose this attack to as many people as you can.
Just a few minutes ago while sitting at my kitchen table working on a new youth outreach project, my ears catch the tail end of a commercial on Nickelodeon. While my children are dialed into an episode of Rug Rats All Grown Up, I hear the words gay or straight, love is love. I quickly snap my neck up from my computer to see Actress Susan Sarandon sitting there saying something about gay love and then a web address pops up under the ad GLAAD.org
Im like what the heck??? GAY, LOVE, RUGRATS ...I HAD TO DO A DOUBLE TAKE
So I quickly go to the website to see what is going on. THE ONLY THING I CAN SAY IS OH MY GOSH IM MAD!!!! NOT GLAAD
ITS MID AFTERNOON, RIGHT AFTER SCHOOL GETS OUT...HOW MANY CHILDREN ARE GETTING THIS MESSAGE??
If you ever had a doubt as to why are youth culture are confused and are experimenting with homosexual relationships at probably an epidemic rate; or had a doubt why they look at us funny when we say that homosexuality is not Gods will, put that doubt to rest and welcome to GLAAD.org: the home of the Gay Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. This highly sophisticated, methodical, patient army is large and is mounting a war like weve never seen before ...right under our noses.
I BELIEVE THE WAR FOR THE MINDS AND SOULS OF OUR NEXT GENERATION IS INFINITELY IMPORTANT. Certainly important enough for you to take a moment and EDUCATE YOURSELF .
Go to the website PLEASE watch the ADS being played in front of your kids, SPEND QUALITY TIME ON THIS SITE find out what they want to teach your children. Check out the EYE ON THE MEDIA SECTION ON THE LEFT SIDE, they glaadly let you know all the TV shows that support their war.
Check out their proud banner ad that now 504 newspapers print same sex union announcements.
Go to Idoin30seconds.org and look at the HOMEWRECKER OF THE WEEK CHUCK COLSON while they recruit our kids by the thousands to make a pledge to take a stand for supporting gay, lesbian, and cross gender marriages.
Do what God leads...

You add my post everywhere, yet you do not add my ministry to the "Homosexual Help" section. Hmmm... must be an oversight ;-)
Articles posted on Free Republic cannot be edited, therefore we cannot add your site to the the "Homosexual Help" section. That is why we post links and excerpts as replies to the article.
Scripter is working on a new format for the next version of his 'Index of Links' and I am sure he will add the link to your site in the new database. Please contact scripter via FReepmail with the particulars.
Yeah, it's too bad we can't edit posts. Now that would be nice and would make updating the categorical index a breeze. Just let me know what links you're referring to and I'll take a look. Thanks for the heads up, ER.
GLSEN is a homosexual activist organization. It's mission is to fill the eyes and ears of the precious children in our public schools with homosexual propaganda. I encourage anyone who wants to know more about GLSEN and its founder, Kevin Jennings, to read through the information and articles linked below.
GLSEN needs to be booted out of the public schools.
An excerpt from 'Queering the Schools' with response from Kevin Jennings, Executive Director of GLSEN and the editors response to Kevin Jennings.

"GLSEN activist and New York kindergarten teacher Jaki Williams said starting in kindergarten is a must, since children at that age are still developing their ideas about the world around them. Even at that age, she said, the saturation process needs to begin.
Williams, in fact, is a model teacher when it comes to this saturation process. She regularly initiates conversations with her children by reading to them such controversial books as Heather Has Two Mommies, Daddys Roommate, and One Dad, Two Dads, Browns Dads, Blue Dads. She also hosts a viewing of the video Both of My Moms Names Are Judy: Children of Lesbians and Gays Speak Out, produced by a San Francisco pro-homosexual advocacy group.
According to one writer for The Lambda Report, who infiltrated a 1997 GLSEN workshop, one former teacher admitted that changing the mind of a child required more than a one-time effort. She said she had to expose her children to a constant stream of homosexual words and images, because "Its really a conditioning process."
An excerpt from "Example Offered of Real Homosexual Agenda in America's Schools"
( http://www.FreeRepublic.com/focus/news/675813/posts )
"The school board says its about harassment, its about tolerance. Well, what does GLSEN say?" she asks. "The executive director, Kevin Jennings, says that it is about promoting homosexuality. Thats what he said is his mission. Let me read you his quote. He said, Promoting homosexuality -- we can make it happen. That is our mission from this day forward. "
Folger describes the prospects as "frightening." "We had people that went into the GLSEN meetings. And make no mistake, this is not about tolerance in meeting with teachers -- it's about getting to the children," she says. "In fact, it was in that GLSEN meeting, locally held, that they said, 'We need this agreement to get to the children.' "
An excerpt from "When Silence Would Have Been Golden"

GLSEN'S JENNINGS: !&%#! THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT!
Addressing a church audience on March 20, 2000 in New York City just days before "Fistgate" GLSEN Executive Director Kevin Jennings offered a stinging (and quite intolerant) assessment of how to deal with religious conservatives:Twenty percent of people are hard-core fair-minded [pro-homosexual] people. Twenty percent are hard-core [anti-homosexual] bigots. We need to ignore the hard-core bigots, get more of the hard-core fair-minded people to speak up, and we'll pull that 60 percent [of people in the middle] over to our side. That's really what I think our strategy has to be. We have to quit being afraid of the religious right. We also have to quit I'm trying to find a way to say this. I'm trying not to say, '[F---] 'em!' which is what I want to say, because I don't care what they think! [audience laughter] Drop dead!9
It should be noted that GLSEN and Jennings make heavy use of the words "respect" and "tolerance" in their public rhetoric and in descriptions of their programs.10
JENNINGS: OK TO PROMOTE HOMOSEXUALITY IN SCHOOLS
Although Jennings has employed manipulative methods that exaggerate homosexual victimhood to advance his pro-"gay" agenda in schools, he has occasionally been frank about GLSEN's real agenda:
I'd like five years from now for most Americans when they hear the word GLSEN to think, "Ooh, that's good for kids." Sane people keep the world the same [sh---y] old way it is now. It's the [crazy] people who think, "No, I can envision a day when straight people say, 'So what if you're promoting homosexuality?' or [when] straight kids say, 'Hey, why don't you and your boyfriend come over before you go to the prom and try your tuxes on at my house?'" [I]f we believe that can happen, we can make it happen. The only thing that will stop us is our lack of faith that we can make it happen. That is our mission from this day forward.11
At the same 1997 regional GLSEN conference where Kevin Jennings revealed his goal to openly promote homosexuality in schools, New York teacher and GLSEN activist Jaki Williams led a workshop titled "Inclusive Kindergartens." What follows is Williams' chilling advice to other teachers and fellow GLSEN activists on how to push pro-homosexual themes on very young, impressionable children:
Children in the kindergarten age are "developing their superego," Williams said, and "that's when the saturation process needs to begin." She explained that "five-year-olds really are very interested in the big questions. They're very interested in sex, death, and love, and they ask those questions, and they talk about them. And we want to help them find the answers on their level." To initiate conversation, Williams said she has her class read from an assortment of pro-homosexual children's books, such as "Heather Has Two Mommies" and "One Dad, Two Dads, Brown Dad, Blue Dads."15

"WASHINGTON - The nations new education secretary denounced PBS on Tuesday for spending public money on a cartoon with lesbian characters, saying many parents would not want children exposed to such lifestyles.
The not-yet-aired episode of Postcards From Buster shows the title character, an animated bunny named Buster, on a trip to Vermont a state known for recognizing same-sex civil unions. The episode features two lesbian couples, although the focus is on farm life and maple sugaring.
A PBS spokesman said late Tuesday that the nonprofit network has decided not to distribute the episode, called Sugartime!, to its 349 stations. She said the Education Departments objections were not a factor in that decision.
Ultimately, our decision was based on the fact that we recognize this is a sensitive issue, and we wanted to make sure that parents had an opportunity to introduce this subject to their children in their own time, said Lea Sloan, vice president of media relations at PBS..."

Parr includes adopted families, step-families, one-parent families, and families with two parents of the same sex, as well as the traditional nuclear family. His quirky humor and bright, childlike illustrations will make children feel good about their families. Parents and teachers can use this book to encourage children to talk about their families and the different kinds of families that exist.
Dr. Sander Breiner, a member of NARTH's Scientific Advisory Committee, recently expanded upon a paper on "Adolescent Homosexuality" he presented at the November, 2004 NARTH conference in Washington, DC. (Dr. Breiner's paper is currently posted on the NARTH web site.)
Sexually questioning youth are vulnerable to the derailment of their normal heterosexuality, Dr. Breiner asserted, when they are urged to consider the possibility of being same-sex attracted.
Dr. Breiner's paper dealt with the current scientific knowledge on the development of the brain during pre-teen and teen years as it relates to hormones and emotional maturity. One of the sources for this paper was a book edited by Dr. Ronald Dahl for the New York Academy of Sciences on Adolescent Neuroscience. Dr. Dahl is at the University of Pittsburgh and has written extensively on adolescent brain development.
Breiner noted that neuroscientists are convinced that the developing brain during the teen years is significantly influenced by external emotional and social factors. Stress factors, nutrition, and exercise can have an effect on the reproductive function that can lead to a suppression of ovarian and testicular functions. According to Breiner, "If the stress is chronic there can be a significant suppression of this reproductive axis."
Gay-Affirming Teachings Can Impact Brain Development
In an interview with NARTH's Editorial Director, Dr. Breiner notes that teens typically face stresses and confusion about their sexuality. Teaching gay-affirming ideas to teens can add to the problems they already face. The child who is taught that he or she may be homosexual can be stressful and may react in the following negative ways: hurt self esteem; poor body image; likelihood of depression; anxiety about how they will function socially; and a delayed response in functioning as a heterosexual, which makes their social skills even more limited. Gay-affirming materials "won't make someone homosexual, but certainly will contribute to problems in their development," said Breiner. "Adolescents have enough problems in establishing gender roles and this will increase these problems."
According to Breiner, this isn't simply a social or psychological threat to children but is a neurological problem as well. Actual brain changes take place. He notes that there is a strong connection between hormonal development and neurotransmitters that send messages for hormonal development. "If the wrong message gets sent, as is likely to occur when external messages are coming from teachers, then the child may experience a delay in proper sexual development."
Dr. Breiner observes that neuroscience studies are clear on this subject yet nothing has appeared yet in the psychiatric or psychological literature to deal with the connection between external gay-affirming messages and brain development.
"I am convinced that gay affirming materials are injurious to children and will add to the psychological problems they already have as a normal part of development," said Breiner. "It is wrong to say that homosexuality is a viable alternative to heterosexuality. If teens are to be protected, they must be given the facts about homosexual behavior, not fantasies from the gay community."
In discussing the development of homosexuality in general, Dr. Breiner observed: "Human homosexuality is a symptom of some unresolved conflicts in a child's development psychologically. It is determined before the age of five, and usually between 1 1/2 to 3 years of age. If the individual has a neurosis, it was organized between ages 3 to 6. If they are of a borderline psychological organization, it was between ages 2 to 3. If they are psychotic, the psychological organization is under 2."
In the conclusion to his paper on "Adolescent Homosexuality," Dr. Breiner observes:
The brain that is developing (pre-puberty to adulthood), particularly in the area that deals with emotional and sexual development, is affected organically by social and physical stress. Homosexual indoctrination (direct or subtle), coercive or seductive can organically affect brain and sexual physiologic development to a modest or minimal degree. It cannot permanently produce homosexuality. However, it can certainly lead to a variety of difficulties commonly including hurt self-esteem, distortions in living, depression, selection of life goals, and other problems. Though the individual may eventually select a heterosexual life position, the preceding years of difficulties in developing and organizing one's life are likely to have more permanent deleterious effects. Therefore, any attitude by society and particularly educators that homosexuality is a reasonable or alternative lifestyle can significantly contribute to psychopathology in this vulnerable age.
yes, you have been busy, lol.
"Education Secretary Margaret Spellings has asked the Public Broadcasting Service to refund taxpayer dollars used to create and distribute an episode of a cartoon program that features lesbian parents, saying the subject matter was inappropriate and undermines the show's effort to promote literacy.
The "PBS for Kids" episode of its popular "Postcards From Buster" program, originally scheduled to air Feb. 2 in classrooms across the country, had been pulled for review after some affiliates of PBS complained about its content. It was produced with Education Department grant money from a literacy initiative...

"Joan Garry, executive director of the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, had the highest salary among the heads of Americas 18 national gay civil rights organizations with a paid staff in 2002, the latest year for which non-profit groups were required by law to disclose salary information to the IRS and the public.
A survey of salaries of the heads of the 18 groups, conducted by the Washington Blade, shows that that Garry received a 2002 salary of $198,730 and additional benefits of $9,930, for a total compensation package of $208,666...
The 18 national gay groups are among the thousands of non-profit organizations in the United States that must file annual reports with the IRS disclosing financial information, including the salaries of their chief operating officers.

An excerpt from "Hurricane GLSEN" by Marc Fey, TownHall.com, September 28, 2003
"Its not just that they are generously funded, though they certainly are. Revenues for 2001 were $3.35 million, and this years conference was liberally supported by Kodak, Levi Strauss, Microsoft, and IBM whose logos were emblazoned on banners, brochures, and conference freebies. For the close to 500 people in attendance, including about 100 junior high and senior high students, the companies hoped to capture this powerful purchasing sectorgays and youtharguably two of the most powerful buying sectors in America today."
Here's an example of how some of HRC's money is used to indoctrinate kids:
The spending had been lopsided here, with supporters of gay marriage spending $450,000 to fight the measure with television advertising and polling, compared with $19,000 spent by opponents.
"Still, we were just a little bit out-organized," said Seth Kilbourn, national field director for the Human Rights Campaign, a Washington group that helped pay for the Missouri opposition. "We can't let that happen again."
An excerpt from the article "Changing minds"
Opposition to the message of the Ex-Gay Educators Caucus is led by Kevin Jennings, a former private school teacher in Massachusetts and founder of the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network. Mr. Jennings is a partner with the NEA in promoting acceptance of homosexuality through curriculum materials in the nation's schools as early as kindergarten and elementary grades. He was given the NEA's human rights "creative leadership" award at this year's convention.
"Ex-gay messages have no place in our nation's public schools," Mr. Jennings said in a publication of the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network. "A line has been drawn. There is no 'other side' when you're talking about lesbian, gay and bisexual students."
Now consider this excerpt from "CFI Panel Exposes GLSENs Cross-Dressing Agenda - Medical Doctor Says Young Male AIDS Cases Linked to Abuse
"... FROM ABUSE VICTIM TO GAY STUDENT
LaBarbera also relayed an account by GLSEN Executive Director Kevin Jennings in which he counseled one of his former students, a sophomore boy named Brewster who had been victimized by a homosexual pedophile. According to his account in his book One Teacher in Ten: Gay and Lesbian Educators Tell Their Stories, Jennings, then an openly homosexual teacher at the private Concord Academy in Massachusetts, met with the troubled Brewster, who nervously revealed a story about his involvement with an older man he had met in Boston. Jennings wrote that after the talk, Brewster left my office with a smile on his face that I would see every time I saw him on campus.
Jennings said proudly that he had helped the boy realize that its OK to be gay. Several years later, he saw Brewster at a homosexual restaurant in Boston. He was now twenty-two, taking time off from college, and living with his boyfriend, Jennings wrote.
LaBarbera said the story illustrates the problem of open homosexual activists working in schools and using their authority and trust as role models to promote false, unhealthy sexual identities to impressionable students. He said that in reality, young Brewster was not gay, as Jennings had claimed, but the confused victim of a homosexual predator..."
Seven years after ABC aired its controversial "coming out" episode of Ellen, homosexuality appears to be breaking new ground againthis time in cartoons.
The producers of the PBS children's show Postcards from Buster have filmed an episode in which Bustera cartoon bunny who travels the U.S. meeting real peoplevisits a lesbian couple in Vermont. A little girl introduces Buster to "my mom and Gillian" before everyone sits down for dinner, USA Today reported. Although PBS has since said it will not air the episode, the producerWGBH in Bostonsays it will provide the episode to stations that want it.
In February, a regular character on The Simpsons is scheduled to come out in an episode that reportedly will feature a same-sex "marriage." Homer "marries" the couple, and his daughter, Lisa, supports the couple's relationship. The episode will air in the midst of a nationwide culture battle over the definition of marriage...
Pro-family leaders say both cartoons are another indication that homosexuality is moving further into the mainstream of society. "As any parent knows, kids are riveted to cartoons," Peter LaBarbera, executive director of the Illinois Family Institute, told Baptist Press. " You're taking a kid and what he loves to do mostwhich is watch cartoonsand you're introducing an adult topic which is inappropriate..."
"It's extremely offensive that they would even consider doing this issue," he said. " They're teaching the acceptance of homosexuality to toddlers..."
Simpsons' staffers began working on the episode after San Francisco issued marriage licenses to homosexual couples in early part of 2004, the Baltimore Sun reported. The California Supreme Court subsequently invalided the licenses.
"We thought it would be an interesting thing for Springfield to do," Simpsons executive editor Al Jean told the newspaper. "Lisa thinks it's good for civil rights. The reverend of the local Protestant church is opposed to it. Other people think tourists will come to town. Mayor Quimby wants the money. We don't take a position as much as explore everybody's positions."
For months, the homosexual community has been abuzz, trying to guess which Simpsons character comes out. The current favorite is Patty, Marge's sister...
"They're trying to get kids used to the idea that having two moms or having two dads is normal, when actually it's very abnormal and it's very harmful to children," he said. "This is the liberals' way of indoctrinating our childrenall the while they lecture us about being intolerant and respecting diversity..."
"In a contentious debate between myself and some radical 'gays' who support the teaching of the 'gay' lifestyle to children, one of them asked me if and when I had 'chosen' to be heterosexual. "Was it at age 3, 6, 13, 19?" he asked, "Or did you (a female) just 'naturally' gravitate towards boys or men without any outside pressure or force?" This question, laden with implied meaning, is a favorite tactical 'trap' set by 'gays' for unsuspecting and unprepared heterosexuals...
My response, just below, seemingly disarmed them and after calling me a few obligatory names, they quit the debate.
"There was no 'choice'........there was never any question........my gravitation towards the opposite sex occured as naturally as breathing air. Now for yourself, 'something' occured that interfered with your natural 'gravitational' process towards the opposite sex and manhood that, in effect, stunted it in much the same way as a baby duck can have its natural progression towards becoming a mature duck interfered with and stunted. This usually occurs when a human causes the chick to imprint upon the human rather than upon an adult duck.
So does the 'interference' with natural progression make the baby duck into something other than a duck? That the chick seems to believe itself to be, and even tries to be human make it human in fact? Of course not. It's still a duck in every sense of what it means to be a duck. Just as you are still a heterosexual despite that you believe you are 'something else'..."
Homosexual Activists Create a Crisis for Political Gain...
Tens of thousands of homosexuals have changed and more desire to change. Homosexuality is a behavior -- not a genetic trait. Based on verifiable evidence, there is no justification for same sex marriage, civil unions or domestic partnership legislation. None.
"Despite a rebuke from the new education secretary and an official cancellation by PBS, several large affiliates of the public TV network say they will air today a controversial episode of "Postcards from Buster," a cartoon series for pre-schoolers, that portrays homosexuality.
Shortly after taking office last week, Secretary Margaret Spellings denounced PBS for using public dollars to promote the homosexual lifestyle.
In a letter to the president of PBS, Spellings said: "Many parents would not want their young children exposed to the lifestyles portrayed in this episode. Congress' and the Department's purpose in funding this kind of programming certainly was not to introduce this kind of subject matter to children, particularly through the powerful and intimate medium of television."
PBS subsequently canceled the episode, entitled "Sugartime!" In the episode, Buster the rabbit visits a Vermont home headed by two lesbians.
According to a report in New York Newsday, WGBH, the powerful Boston public television station that makes the series, said it will air the program today and has offered it to other PBS stations. The paper says 18 stations plan to air it, including New York's WNET and KQED in San Francisco..."
I think everything up to here is in revision 1.2. Since it's going to be a major change, it may be called revision 2.0...
Sounds good! I may still post some additional supporting documentaion in this thread in the short term.
I think that's a good idea.
"The American Psychiatric Association considers whether anyone who disagrees with its rosy view of homosexuality is nuts.
Beginning in the early seventies, when it first declared that homosexuality was not a psychiatric illness but perfectly normal and healthy behavior, the American Psychiatric Association has given its seal of approval to every imaginable form of sexual behavior once considered aberrant or pathological. Last year, for example, the association published a study asserting that pedophilia wasn't a mental disorderunless the pedophile found himself stressed out by his condition or unable to work or have meaningful relationships. Accordingly, the study suggested we should no longer label adult sex with "willing" pre-teen kids as molestation but instead should call it, more normatively, "adult-child sex."
After a huge public uproar and sharp criticism from some members who excoriated the study's sloppy research, the APA retracted the study (one of the authors of which, it turned out, had previously written for Paidika, a pro-pedophilia Danish journal). But the sorry report was in keeping with the APA's entire post-sixties history...
Not too long ago, for example, an APA-approved study, "Is Homophobia Associated With Homosexual Arousal?" argued that people who object to homosexuality in fact have a deep attraction toward itand presumably need therapy to get over their conflicted feelings. This May in Chicago, further evidence of this troubling trend revealed itself at an APA conference workshop: "Is Homophobia a Mental Illness?"as indeed the use of the term to describe those who disapprove of homosexuality implies. The politicized tenor of the session revealed itself from the outset, when two of the four male panelists kissed each other on the lips immediately prior to the presentationsexhibiting a provocative attitude toward appropriate professional behavior, if nothing else. To the extent one could glean a definition of homophobia from the confused panelistsas a scientific or theoretical discussion, the session didn't rise above the high school levelit seemed to be simply this: to oppose the agenda of homosexual-rights activism, or even to disapprove of homosexual acts means that one is mentally ill..."
Thanks for the info.
To what is this referring? Are a majority of gay men misogynous?
An excerpt from "GAY ORTHODOXY AND ACADEMIC HERESY"
( Free Republic thread posted here )
"Those who discount the effect of systemic bias and political correctness in academia, such as Professor Mary Coombs of the University of Miami Law School, are willfully ignorant, if not dishonest. Coombs argues, somewhat like my former colleagues, that only pro-gay articles are published in academic journals because the other side is so bereft of substance. While that notion may suit her own intellectual vanity, it overlooks mounting evidence to the contrary.
At a recent meeting of the American Psychological Association (APA), for example, former APA President Robert Perloff denounced the organization as "too politically correct" and beholden to special interests. He noted that the organization had tried to prevent research into "conversion therapy" (therapy to change one's sexual orientation) and had tried to label it "unethical" a priori, even when the patient wants conversion therapy.
The APA blocked presentations from researchers on whether sexual orientation can be changed through counseling and therapy, yet it published controversial research suggesting that sex between children and adults may not be harmful and then styled itself a defender of academic freedom (prompting both houses of Congress to take the unusual step of passing a unanimous resolution of condemnation).
Meanwhile, the American Psychiatric Association [not to be confused with APA, which is American Psychological Association] offered luridly titled presentations on counseling aspiring transsexuals.
This creates a rather bizarre contrast. On the one hand, "mainstream" academic/professional organizations publish research suggesting adult- child sex may not be harmful, and they endorse supportive therapy for individuals who wish to surgically alter themselves (some would say physically mutilate themselves) from one sex to the other. Yet, they denounce as unethical any healthcare professionals who offer therapy to homosexuals who wish to become heterosexuals.
In other words, it is ethical to counsel a man to have his penis removed so he can have sex as a heterosexual woman, but it's unethical to counsel a man to have sex as a heterosexual man even if he wants to have sex as a typical man...
Even Byne concedes that gay activists, specifically gay psychiatrists and psychologists, have likely produced biased research on gay parenting. However, that bias exists not only within the research produced by gay activists themselves; instead, the bias is exerted against publication of any research that does not conform to pro-gay orthodoxy. In fact, the most consistent theme among the articles in this volume is that a pervasive bias exists against those who stray from pro-gay orthodoxy.
Many libertarians, myself included, debate the role of public morality versus individual liberty, but disputes about sexual mores are no longer the central issue in the gay rights debate. Instead, the greater threat to individual liberties comes from gay activists themselves, many of whom seem to view the slightest deviation from pro-gay orthodoxy as something akin to religious heresy.
The work of Dr. Robert Spitzer, one of the reviewers of the Rekers article, is an example of this phenomenon. Dr. Spitzer is perhaps best known for his role in removing homosexuality from classification as a mental disorder, and he was widely hailed as a hero by the gay rights community thereafter. But in the fall of 2000 he announced preliminary results from research on re-orientation therapy, i.e., therapy to change homosexuals to heterosexuals, wherein he found evidence that change was possible, at least in some cases.
The reaction was swift and hyperbolic. The communications director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, whose scientific expertise consisted of having worked as a newspaper reporter, intoned that Spitzer's work was "snake oil" and "scientific bunk."
The Human Rights Campaign accused Spitzer of "anti-gay views, close ties to right-wing political groups and [a] lack of objective data," and a psychologist at the Lesbian and Gay Service Center said "she cannot believe Columbia would allow any of its professors to do anything like this." As a Wall Street Journal editorial noted, no one called Spitzer a quack back in 1973 when he spearheaded the effort to de-classify homosexuality as a mental disorder. Yet he quickly became a pariah among gay activists when he deviated ever-so-slightly from the party line.
Dr. Spitzer's treatment illustrates the rampant extremism and intolerance among gay rights activists toward those who dare question their orthodoxy. In an interview for this essay, Dr. Spitzer reported that a colleague at Columbia objected that merely conducting the research was "unethical," and that same colleague later formally complained to Columbia's Institutional Review Board that it should not have approved the research. Dr. Spitzer has since submitted the article for publication, and he reports that he expects the article to be rejected due to the biases of the journal. Fortunately, another journal has already expressed interest in publishing the research.
As Dr. Spitzer explained, it is very easy for a gay-activist journal staff to torpedo a non-conforming article merely by assigning the article to hostile peer reviewers. Similarly, private and government funding agencies, which ostensibly fund research on scientific merit, can be subverted merely by assigning biased reviewers to the funding committees. Unlike the voir dire process for selecting jurors, establishment science has no process for vetting the fairness of peer reviewers. In fact, peer reviewers are often anonymous.
Yet, when non-conforming researchers are forced to turn to alternative venues for publication, that fact is held against them insofar as their work is not published in a "mainstream" peer-reviewed journal..."
