Posted on 01/26/2005 4:43:08 PM PST by scripter
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.
I glanced at this earlier.....I don't know if you pinged me...or I just looked, lol
bookmarked...this would be a keeper
I've been noticing more and more "removals" by a certain website....I've spent most of this evening and much of last looking for info....more and more has disappeared...even from the wayback now...have you heard about/noticed this?
The First Law of Homosexuality:
'Homosexuals' don't reproduce, they recruit
Any exposure of children to homosexual behavior is child abuse
big brother leftist is busy rewriting history.
indeed, they are.
No one is born with tendencies to commit homosexuality. Every 'gay gene' study that has 'found' a genetic link has been debunked. There is no way to tell a corpse was a 'homosexual'
'Homosexuality' more correctly known as Same-sex Attraction Disorder (SAD) is a mental disease. It is curable.
Everyone is born heterosexual, look at biology for a confirmation of this. Man fits together with woman perfectly and productively. No other arrangement works
""So, being gay isn't genetic, its indoctrination?""
It always has been...
Bump & Ping
There was a post a couple of weeks ago about a study that indicated that nearly fify percent (can't remember the exact figure) of all homosexuals admitted to having been sexually molested by an adult male before the age of fourteen and that the average age difference was eleven years. That pretty much says that in a large percent of the cases, homosexuality is learned.
It is time that we start bringing up two valid points everytime the Gay Activists try to push their Homosexual agenda:
1. The gay life style kills more people everyday. It is the true quagmire of American and the world. The Gay lifestyle is far more dangerous to Americans than the Iraqi situation.
2. The cost of the gay life style is very high re medical treatment. It is a total waste of money until the infected ones die. During the wasteful/expensive Medical treatment time, they continue to have sex and infect others.
Homosexuals Should Pay More Insurance

Perhaps the biggest 'cost' of the homosexual life style is the damage done to the souls of the children being indoctrinated.
I agree with your points.
Pinging you all to this article - post #56 - an excellent piece about homosexuals, longevity, AIDS, and the cost of insurance. Not a bit of 'morality' or 'religion' in it.
Just numbers, that anyone will see and agree with. Unless, of course, they're likely to contract AIDS by their behavior.
Let me and DirtyHarryY2K know if anyone wants on/off this pinglist.
