Really!? I hope I can run across some documentation on that little fact! Wow.

You'll find that out when you read Socorides paper. When the final referendum came to a vote in 1973 nearly 42% voted against its removal from the DSM. How can you vote on science? Let's see if I can put that in perspective. Lets say the existence of gravity came to a vote and 58% of all the scientists said it doesn't exist and 42% say it does...how comfortable would feel jumping out of an airplane without your parachute? That's basically what APA is dealing with here.

In his paper Socarides talks about the patients he's cured, that should give you some documentation that behavioral therapy works...and that was way before NARTH or any other religious based therapy organizations came into existence.

Additional documentation supporting Clint's statement posted in Scripter's Homosexual Agenda: Categorical Index of Links (Revision 1.1):

American Psychiatric Association: 46, 139, 213, 232, 237, 239, 241, 242, 243, 246, 300, 363, and 364.



"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 ).
