Gay Reversal Advocates Say School Libraries Banning Their 'Ex-Gay' Books...
Fox News ^ | October 22nd, 2009

Posted on 10/22/2009 3:06:04 PM PDT by TaraP

Visit most public school libraries and you'll find an array of books that address the subject of homosexuality. Many include sexually explicit content, and some even include graphic images.

But if you're looking for a book that refers to the possibility that homosexuality can be "reversed," a Chicago-based group says your best bet is the banned books list.

Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays (PFOX) says there's an entire community of people across the world who say that their sexual orientation changed from gay to straight. But they're not getting their message out, the group says, because libraries across the country refuse to carry literature that describes these experiences or any studies that support them.

Senate passes expanded hate crimes bill
The Senate passed groundbreaking legislation Thursday that would make it a federal crime to assault an individual because of his or her sexual orientation or gender identity. The expanded hate crimes law now goes to President Obama’s desk.

President George W. Bush had threatened to veto a similar measure. The bill is named for Matthew Shepard (above), a gay Wyoming teen who died after being beaten in 1998. developing story

I find this quite frustrating. The ex-gay population is growing but few are aware of this growing segment in our society.

There are hundreds of books on how to control what one eats. Everyone assumes that we can control the most basic human desire for food, for the purpose of improved health and self-regulation.

Why is sexual desire assumed to be completely the opposite?

Yes..Crimes agaisnt nature....

Nothing is natural about 2 people of the same sex trying to create a healthy civilized society....

First- Because they can’t, and the reason 2 people of the opposite sex compliment each other, is because they make up everything that is *natural* to preserve society and teach offspiring how to be men and women....

Not a book but an organization, People Can Change.

I have a list of organizations somewhere, many of which are religious in nature.

Romans 1
21-39
Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

..."Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but take pleasure in them that do them".

The reprobates of this nation take pleasure in others that are trapped in the same sin and they cannot stand for people to show others the way out of their sin.
Yes, we are all sinners - and Thank God that Christ came to save sinners. But a sinner needs to repent and to understand that he/she needs saving - if they are ever going to come to the LORD. Convincing them otherwise is the lie that satan, and those he has duped, will spread...
Squashing books that point the way out of sin is satan in action.

Because then they can’t claim they were born that way. They don’t want their lifestyle to be seen as a perversion/mental disorder as it was years ago. Here is some interesting information about how homosexuality was “normalized” by the APA. http://www.narth.com/docs/normalization.html
Excerpt:”Gay activist groups believed that prejudice against homosexuals could be extinguished only if, as homosexuals, they were accepted as normal. “They claimed that homosexuality is a preference, an orientation, a propensity; that it is neither a defect, a disturbance, a sickness, nor a malfunction of any sort.” To promote this aim, Dr. Bieber reports, “Gay activists impugned the motives and ridiculed the work of those psychiatrists who asserted that homosexuality is other than normal.”

Once again the feminazis have their way. They get to say which books are in libraries and which are not.

Just asking: are you saying that books with religious content are banned from public school libraries? I wasn’t aware of that.

I don't know the answer to that but that's what I was speculating. I could see a public school library wanting to avoid books that push religion since they then get into having to accommodate all religions if they start allowing one. They'd probably rather avoid it and not have books that pushes a particular religion's point of view. Just a guess on my part.

Thanks. I’m pretty sure our local public high school has some religious books: how many or what sort, I don’t know: but I don’t think blocking a book by reason of its religious content would be Constitutional.
