Eminent Psychiatrist Says Homosexuality is a Disorder that Can be Cured
LifeSiteNews ^ | 5/1/08 | Matthew Cullinan Hoffman

Posted on 05/03/2008 10:15:45 AM PDT by wagglebee

BUENOS AIRES, May 1, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The eminent Spanish psychiatrist Enrique Rojas gave a speech yesterday in Buenos Aires declaring that homosexuality is "a clinical process that has an etiology, pathogeny, treatment, and cure".

Speaking at the Buenos Aires International Book Fair about his book "Goodbye, Depression", Rojas characterized homosexual orientation as a "disorder" rather than an illness, and stated his opinion that 95% of cases are caused by environmental factors, according to the Spanish news service Terra.

The disorder, according to Rojas, is the result of an absent father, overweening mother, or sexual abuse in childhood.

Rojas blasted the homosexual movement for promoting the development of homosexual tendencies in young people, and particularly condemned the practice of allowing homosexual couples to adopt children.

The child is deprived of a right to grow up "in a normal environment, heterosexual, which is the standard" he said. "Heterosexuality is what is normal, the natural condition of human beings."

According to studies from the United States, Canada, and New Zealand, there is a 70-80 percent chance that a child adopted by homosexuals will develop the same tendencies, Rojas said.

Rojas is the author of various books on psychology, including "Who Are You?", "The Light Man" and "Remedies for Coldness".

How can anyone schooled in science not believe that homosexuality is a disorder?

It is simply put, a mental malfunction which prohibits the desire to have reproductive sex. The scientific mystery is how it can survive at all. There should be no trait more self-eliminating from the gene pool than homosexuality.

I think there is also a mental malfunction in some people that prompts some people to engage in behavior that they find reprehensible and unnatural simply to gain acceptance.

Time was, any school that taught that homosexuality is normal and acceptable...would have been shut down. For starters.

How much press will this article get? My guess is zilch, zero, nada. Homosexual activists are as bad as Islamo fascists when it comes to their prophet, perversion. People must never allow that prophet to be exposed in truth.

Is stigma the same as disorder? The author definitely needs to be given a microphone, and a chance to speak from his ample experience.

How long before the rest of the psychiatric community shows up on his door step with pitchforks and torches? He obviously needs reeducation because the brainwashing never took.

Why can’t there be more like him?

I'm not so sure of that. In primitive times more so than now (not to say we aren't still primitive...) lesbians would have been made to reproduce regardless of their preferences.

But if the man is correct, it isn't really a matter of genetics anyway. Could be, the human brain is programmable in this regard, and certain early experiences tend to bring about bad results.

They need to do the “Clockwork Orange” eyeball thingy.

How about this..

An Antarctic fur seal has been observed trying to have sex with a king penguin.

The South African-based scientists who witnessed the incident say it is the most unusual case of mammal mating behaviour yet known. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/7379554.stm

Only 5% of homosexuals are born that way. The rest just get sucked into it.

"The disorder, according to Rojas, is the result of an absent father, overweening mother, or sexual abuse in childhood."

This may have been true fifteen years ago. Unfortunately, thanks to the Homosexual agenda in schools, all that has changed.

"Rojas blasted the homosexual movement for promoting the development of homosexual tendencies in young people, and particularly condemned the practice of allowing homosexual couples to adopt children."

They are going after the children on all fronts. From kindergarten to post grad, the gay agenda is in full court press.

Which is exactly why they must recruit and parasitically feed on the rest of society in order to survive.

I'd change that to "to get attention", and then there is a name for it. Masochism.

I'm not so sure of that. In primitive times more so than now (not to say we aren't still primitive...) lesbians would have been made to reproduce regardless of their preferences.

If you follow Darwinism, which puts great stock in minute differences, such a strong inclination against reproductive sex would be self-eliminating. After all, a stripeless tiger is still a deadly predator.

But if the man is correct, it isn't really a matter of genetics anyway. Could be, the human brain is programmable in this regard, and certain early experiences tend to bring about bad results.

There are people that get sexually fixated on a car. Programming is definitely possible. I certainly get the feeling that a lot of lesbians are just ugly women and/or liberals who are trying to prove how out of the mainstream they are.

As for homosexual men, I just don't get that. I can barely stand a proctology exam.

This would the key determinant in the argument. If the studies are there and legit, then the "gay gene" argument is pretty much trash.

In other words, the Catholic Church’s teaching has been correct all along. However, this won’t play well in San Francisco, among other places.

This is what rational people have advocated all along. Expect a huge backlash from the irrational liberals.

Yes, but if it’s genetic...which I doubt...throughout history women have had little or no say in matters of reproduction. They were given in marriage to whomever their parents chose. There was no birth control. Not to mention all the non-marital situations.
Marry she usually did, and procreate she did, even the humpbacked woman that Thackeray postulated. So about half of any genetic source of homosexuality was not self-eliminating.

their desire is to recreatethe sexual abuse they experienced as a child..
when an adult male has sex with a young boy it imprints his mind and the injection ofmale hormones into the child causes more damage.

They obviously haven't been to San Francisco, or browsed the internet for that matter. Type in some of those search terms with the safe filter off and see what pops up.

Wow, it will be a miracle if some gay group doesn't hang this guy, or some so called "diversity" group. How terribly un-PC of him to tell the truth! Normal is hetero, anyone who says "normal" can't be defined except by each individual is a total idiot or a liar.

If Rojas is Catholic, anything he may have to say on the subject of homosexuality will be dismissed out of hand.

Romans 1:25-27 tells us that same-sex sexual relationships are a consequence of idolatry. In other words, such relationships are a consequence of disobeying the 1ST COMMANDMENT, a major aspect of the GREATEST COMMANDMENT, to love the jealous God with all your being.

Homosexuals need to keep in mind, however, that the good news of the gospel is not about how God despises same-sex sexual relationships. In fact, 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 indicates that certain members of that church had been slaves to such relationships but had been cleansed in Jesus' name. So these former homosexuals had evidently repented and accepted God's grace to straighten their lives out.

Sorry, but I don't accept the notion that all men were natural rapists until 100 years ago and that proclivity for reproductive sex has no bearing on the number of offspring. I too doubt that it is purely genetic.

It isn’t a notion, it’s a historical fact. And “natural rapists” is your spin. The men didn’t have much choice about marriage either, people married for social and economic reasons of their elders.
In ancient times (not to mention the Stone Age or prior), the idea that women ought to choose their own mates would have been funny — or decidedly not.

It isn’t a notion, it’s a historical fact.

Then produce the evidence that lesbian women had as many offspring as heterosexual women. If it is a historical fact as you state, then it shouldn't be hard. I'll wait.

And “natural rapists” is your spin.

B.S. You said women had no choice and that their desire for sex had no affect on frequency of sex, thus reproduction. If the woman is forced to have sex, despite not wanting to, there is a term for it, "rape". That isn't spin, it actually is A FACT. Try a dictionary.

I won't argue with you when you can just go back and read my earlier posts. Take a dictionary AND a grammar.

Ridiculous. Every woman in history who was forced to marry or commanded to marry, was raped in every marital encounter?

That's a rhetorical question. I don't seek or desire responses from people who respond to thoughtful discussion by blurting "B.S."

Hmmm. You make silly, irrelevant statements and then want to hide behind calling them rhetorical.

I said that a lesbian woman would have less reproductive sex than a heterosexual woman and thus, if homosexuality were genetic, it should be self eliminating. You stated that it was a non-factor because women had no choice until recently.

I pointed out that a woman who is having sex against her will is being raped and that I don't accept the notion that this was normal behavior. You answer that by going off on a tantrum that makes no sense at all.

One need only read historical fiction and/or factual accounts to conclude that there were many sexless or near sexless marriages throughout history. For you to make the statement that homosexuality would have no meaningful affect on the number of offspring is absurd.

I asked for evidence of your "facts", you provided none. Your entire argument rests on the notion that the man and only the man determined the frequency of sex until recent times, and that women fully placated the men.
