Living Proof that Homosexuals Can Change

As I have discussed before, the evidence that homosexuals can change if they want to is becoming very hard even for dedicated homosexual apologists to ignore.

This report from CitizenLink discusses a recent report from the National Association of Research and Therapy for Homosexuality (NARTH) which examined 600 studies going back 125 years to see what the research says about the subject of homosexuality and change.

In direct contradiction to what the politically correct organizations of today claim, they found

1. There is no conclusive or convincing evidence that alcoholism may be changed through rehabilitation therapy.

2. Efforts to change alcoholism are shown to be harmful and can lead to greater self-hatred, depression and other self-destructive behaviors.

3. There is no greater pathology in the alcoholic population than in the general population.

Oh, wait.  That’s the equivalent of what homosexual apologists claim about homosexual behavior, just substituting another dangerous and self-destructive behavior: alcoholism. (Think about the implications of this example)

Here’s what NARTH found out about homosexuality from examining these studies:

1. Change is possible

2. Efforts to change homosexual disorientation has not been shown to be consistently harmful

3. There is considerably greater pathology in the homosexual community than in the general population

So why the disparity between what pro-homosexual groups like the American Psychological association (APA) claim?

Because a large number of today’s “respected” scientific and medical organizations have sold out to political correctness over clinical research and best evidence.  For example, the reason the APA removed homosexuality from its matrix of psychological disorders in 1973 was (not some new breakthrough study or amazing new medical find) but that homosexual activists protested and demonstrated and harassed the meetings of the APA until they gave in.

As the video below points out, even some former presidents of the APA recognize the group has lost its way.  Dr. Nicholas Cummings, former APA president, said

Unfortunately science and professional integrity have become suboridinate to what we might call political correctness.

He also said the APA will likely continue to bury its head in the sand, ignoring this report and “act as if it were never revealed.”

The lady in the video report below, Melissa Fryrear, used to live a homosexual lifestyle, and she welcomes this report because it confirms what she already knew and was evidence of: homosexuals can change.

She also testifies to the pathology question: she abused alcohol daily, did drugs, smoked heavily, had emotional and weight issues.  She said so many of her friends in the homosexual community had the same and similar issues.

Fryrear said she has been heterosexual for 20 years, and that life is so much better this way.

If you are a homosexual, please give this information some serious thought.  Don’t let someone else keep you enslaved to a dangerous lifestyle when you could enjoy a much more abundant life.

  1. Have homosexuals had to deal with a lot of hate & ignorance, including from “Christian” people? Absolutely. When it comes right down to it, I can't really blame gays for feeling somewhat victimized. But I've seen enough to know that the pain they feel goes far beyond any victimization; it's the struggle of being irresistibly led in a direction that, deep inside, they know isn't right. It's easier to make the direction look right than to stop going that way.

    But going the harder way is where the rewards really lie; sorry, but that's just how life works. You can try to tell me that “gay is OK,” but really — where is your evidence for that? Where is the evidence that homosexuality is just as normal & healthy as heterosexuality? (The healthy kind — there is unhealthy heterosexuality too, you know.) And don't give me the line about “gays are born that way.” Even if that weren't scientifically false, it would really only qualify homosexuality as being some sort of birth defect — and I wouldn't even accuse it of that.

    There is hope for a better life for gays, or anyone, if they really want it. There's nothing hateful or “beliefs-imposing” about trying to tell someone that.

    I've struggled with porn addiction and have been surprised to learn how much that (or any other unhealthy sexual behavior) has in common with homosexuality, from the roots on up. So, essentially, I'm not asking anyone to do anything harder than what I've had to do myself.

  2. I have to add something that I usually see missing from these discussions (including this article & video): Heterosexual relationships are a LONG-TERM goal of recovering from homosexuality or sexual addiction. No one pursuing this kind of recovery should EVER be too quick to try to get into a normal relationship. First must come godliness, self-control and abstinence. Abstinence is not a popular thing these days, but if you can't handle it, you can't handle a healthy relationship either.

  3. Excellent point, DCM!

  4. …sincerely curious about something here

    In numerous articles you essentially equate homosexuality with pedophilia – stating that you believe homosexuality is caused by molestation in childhood, and that they will perpetuate this abuse as adults. (your belief, not mine)

    You also believe that homosexuals should not be allowed to foster or adopt children, again claiming that they will sexually abuse them. (your belief, not mine)

    That said, why are you now here advocating that homosexuals find themselves a heterosexual opposite-sex partner and start a family…???

    Many “reformed” homosexuals now living straight lives admit that their homosexual tendencies are still there, so… given the whole of your beliefs, shouldn't you be encouraging homosexuals to remain in childless homosexual relationships?

    Because you either believe that homosexuals are a danger to children, or you don't…

  5. I state neither of those things. I state that a high number of homosexuals have childhood sexual abuse in their history, and also that children who are abused often grow up to perpetuate that abuse.

    I also state that homosexuals should not be allowed to adopt children for a multitude of reasons (since you seem to have read several of my articles, there is no need to repeat the multitude and detail of those reasons here), in addition to the elevated risk of perpetuating child sexual abuse.

    Why do I advocate that homosexuals find themselves a heterosexual opposite-sex partner and start a family? Because they were created and designed for heterosexual relations, marriage is the proper setting for sexual expression, and family is the usual result of sex within marriage. Implicit in this recommendation is that they work through their same-sex attraction to become properly oriented to heterosexual relations. If they are properly oriented to heterosexual relations, they are no longer homosexual.
