Jacqui has left this comment on our post Homosexuality 101

Members of the so called “ex-gay” movement like NARTH (from which this article was taken),and EXODUS are thinly veiled religious organizations. (Though NARTH plays down its “religious” affiliations under the pretext of being a psychiatric organization it still demands that members regard the Bible as interpreted by the organization as the final authority).

It should be noted that the American Psychological Association and the American Psychiatric Association regard these “reparative therapies” (i.e. the attempt to convert individuals to heterosexuality ) as not being effective and in fact being potentially harmful to those they attempt to treat. The attempt to cure non- heterosexual orientation, in my opinion, has it’s genesis in homophobia.
