"My literature review contradicts the policies of major mental health organizations because it suggests that sexual orientation, once thought to be an unchanging sexual trait, is actually quite flexible for many people, changing as a result of therapy for some, ministry for others and spontaneously for still others."

It's never spontaneous. The subject must have had to think about it for quite a while before seemingly spontaneously changing.

The rest of this statement is quite valid, though.
