    Former homosexuals who had renounced same-sex relations were called "offensive" by delegates to this month's annual convention of the 2.7-million-member National Education Association (NEA). "I'm really offended that you're even here," a delegate wearing the rainbow emblem of the NEA Gay Lesbian Bisexual Transgender Caucus told a supporter of the new NEA Ex-Gay Educators Caucus. The Ex-Gay Educators Caucus distributed literature explaining that scientific research shows that homosexuality is not "a fixed, inborn trait." Other opponents of the Ex-Gay Educators Caucus, whose exhibit was permitted for the first time at this year's union gathering at the D.C. Convention Center, also...

    In 1973, The American Psychiatric Association (APA) removed homosexuality as a mental disorder from the APA's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-II). This decision was a significant victory for homosexual activists and they have continued to claim that the APA based their decision on new scientific discoveries that proved that homosexual behavior is normal and should be affirmed in our culture. This is false and part of numerous homosexual urban legends that have infiltrated every aspect of our culture. The removal of homosexuality as a mental disorder has given homosexual activists credibility in the culture, and they have...

    On May 19th, 2003 in San Francisco, at a symposium hosted by the American Psychiatric Association, several long-recognized categories of mental illnesses were discussed for possible removal from the upcoming edition of the psychiatric manual of mental disorders. Among the mental illnesses being debated in the symposium at the APA's annual convention were all the paraphilias--which include pedophilia, exhibitionism, fetishism, transvestism, voyeurism, and sadomasochism. Also being debated was Gender-Identity Disorder, a condition in which a person feels persistent discomfort with his or her biological sex. Gay activists have long claimed that Gender-Identity Disorder should not be assumed to be abnormal...

    May 7, 2004 - The Division 44 Newsletter, (Spring, 2004) published by the American Psychological Association's Society for the Psychological Study of Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Issues, urged gay psychologists to become activists in supporting gay marriage and domestic partnerships. Judith Glassgold, the president of Division 44, also urged gay psychologists to oppose any attempts by conservative groups to de-fund sexual orientation or sexuality studies conducted by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). In her editorial, Glassgold says that Division 44 has contacted the APA's Public Policy office to urge them to lobby against President Bush's Defense of Marriage...

    The American College of Pediatricians has recently come out with a paper discouraging the rearing of children in homosexual households. The report, "Homosexual Parenting: Is It Time For Change?" cites studies showing that children who are reared in traditional two-parent homes are "more likely to thrive emotionally, mentally, and physically in a home with two heterosexual parents versus a home with a single parent." The report notes that "...current studies that appear to indicate neutral to favorable results from homosexual parenting have critical flaws such as non-longitudinal design, lack of proper controls, and failure to account for confounding variables."...

    Gay "marriage" proposals unveiled LONDON (Reuters) - The government has unveiled the possibility of gay "marriage" to raised eyebrows among church groups and mixed feelings among gay-rights campaigners. In an unlikely twist, one prominent campaigner branded the proposal to give legal status to same-sex couples as "heterophobic". The reforms are aimed at easing some of the problems that gay couples face, including missing out on rights to pensions, death-benefits and alimony. Couples would make a formal, legal commitment to each other by registering their relationship as a "Civil Partnership". They follow similar proposals in the U.K. last year which would...

    (CNSNews.com) - In a step critics charge could result in decriminalizing sexual contact between adults and children, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) recently sponsored a symposium in which participants discussed the removal of pedophilia from an upcoming edition of the psychiatric manual of mental disorders.

Most of the mental illnesses being considered for removal are known as "paraphilias." Psychiatrist Charles Moser...
