Mission America’s Linda Harvey used her daily radio bulletin today to criticize efforts to limit the use of sexual orientation conversion therapy, a form of pseudo-science which has been denounced and discredited by all of the country’s leading professional medical organizations. Harvey, however, claims that gay rights supporters have tried “to make up the evidence against it” because “the successful efforts of some to leave homosexual behavior behind are terribly threatening to the homosexual political agenda” and its global ambitions:
It’s not a coincidence these days when we start to see a new angle on homosexuality suddenly pop up in news all over country and indeed the world. There’s often big money and big organizations behind whipping up a fake frenzy and creating these so-called grassroots movements, and that’s the case with the new call to ban counseling for teens on homosexuality. Christian counselors around the country are alarmed at this ferocious assault on patient freedom and freedom of religion, shouldn’t a family have the right to support their teen who wants counseling about how to overcome homosexual attraction? Not according to homosexual pressure groups.
You see, the successful efforts of some to leave homosexual behavior behind are terribly threatening to the homosexual political agenda so they have decided that this counseling must be discredited even if they have to make up the evidence against it. There’s big money behind the push to do this. Parents, schools, churches, youth organizations, we all need to stress the benefits of choosing a heterosexual identity and behavior, consistent with good health, a moral lifestyle and the way God designed us. Homosexual feelings can change with God’s help and with sound counseling. But California just passed a law to ban such therapy, a law introduced and supported with the help of gay rights groups.
This agenda is also starting to appear globally. A recent meeting of left-wing groups that lobby the United Nations called efforts to change sexual orientation a ‘violation of human rights,’ and I guess that will be their spin going forward. The good news is that in that meeting were several voices supporting this counseling. In Great Britain, there are efforts already underway to discredit this type of counseling in advance of a coming vote on same-sex marriage. Let’s pledge friends to hold fast to the truth, even as deception abounds.
