That's a great point. It would appear some people forget the human factor, and that is, some habits, especially sexual habits are very difficult to break. People have to unlearn their bad habits--it's rare to happen overnight.

You also have to consider just how unscientific the "Gay" rights movement is, even though its supposed to be based in humanism and science and all that. Of course, if you reinforce homosexuality through habitual fantasy, masturbation, acting out, sexual encounters ec. its going to be difficult to change. Yet the "Gay" rights activists use this as evidence that homosexuality is innate or even genetic!
The role of the Church, Synagogue, psychologists, educators, social workers, all of the "helping" professions should be to give men and women who experience homosexual feelings the emotional, social and cognitive skills (and in the case of religious organizations, faith) to resist reinforcing these feelings through homosexual fantasy and behavior. The tragedy that we are witnessing in our lifetime is that this role is being abandoned by most mainstream organizations.
I will add, that in my view, the emotional, cognitive and faith aspects all have to work together for recovery to occur.
