In a move that serves as a significant blow to "ex-gay" programs and anti-gay organizations, Dr. Robert Spitzer repudiated his much-criticized 2001 study that claimed some "highly motivated" homosexuals could go from gay to straight. His retraction occurred in an American Prospect magazine article that hit newsstands today. Spitzer's rejection of his own research, which was originally published in the prestigious Archives of Sexual Behavior, is a devastating blow to "ex-gay" organizations because it decisively eliminates their most potent claim that homosexuality can be reversed through therapy and prayer.
The Gay Mafia made him an offer he couldn’t refuse.
Ok so how does he explain why long time dads “go gay” especially as they age?
Could it be it’s really a choice after all?
Just as his origimal sellout to the homosexual lobby did not remake scientific truth, neither will this unexplained reversal of personal opinion unmake reality.
It sounds to me as though the boy couldn’t take the heat.
And their ain't no changing that.
Anyone who has ever known them (almost everyone has) knows this to be the case.
I smell imminent ozone...
That article said absolutely nothing at all.
So, he decides he was wrong “in retrospect”, and that is just as sound as his original work. This without any explanation.
Gee. Did that article have just a whiff of objectivity to it or not?
So. On what basis is this article an “integrity test” that true conservatives might or might not object to?
Depending if the good doctor discovered quickly that it doesn't pay to cross the gay mafia.
I need to check on his social and financial success since his initial study.
Maybe it shows the power of peer pressure and political correctness.
As usual follow the money.
I wanted to see what the guy had to say. Heck, he’s been here a week or so and thought this was important enough to start a thread.
Depending on what he says, I expect the cats to be circling soon.
and an idiot is an idiot... ain't no changing that.
Before you get zotted maybe you can answer one question: Why do you communists love homosexual sex so much?
Not all homo's are created equal. While I suspect that most are born that way, there are probably some who have the power to "choose".
The stupidest thing is to believe that sexual orientation is an either/or thing, when in actuality, it probably exists an a continuum. Some might in fact choose, I suspect a few that I know. And yes, I know many.
You screen name is very narcissistic and you really post a lot for a new sign up. Have you been here before?
I know you haven’t been here long, but it usually is not a good sign when someone posts a thread, particularly on a dumb, worthless article like this, and fails to maintain some dialog on your own thread.
I suggest you engage.
