FCDF Vigorously Defending Landmark JONAH Case

February 11, 2013 By: Tom Coy Category: Gay Politics, Religious Perspective, Sexual Orientation Change Efforts

January 29, 2013

Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund news release: “This week FCDF is delivering to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) copies of dozens of studies and articles, and references to hundreds of others, that categorically prove that people can and do change their sexual orientations and desires. Indeed several of the articles and studies were written by homosexual researchers and activists who claim that sexual orientation is fluid and flexible. One of the organizations that promotes the idea that sexual orientation is fluid and flexible is the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network (GLSEN). Ironically, GLSEN is an SPLC ally in promoting the radical homosexual agenda in the schools. Thus, it is anticipated that SPLC’s ill-conceived, politically motivated, lawsuit will backfire badly, and that its false accusations will be exposed and defeated.” (more…)

Ex-gay Christopher Doyle gives his testimony and argues against bans on sexual orientation therapy

Excerpt of Christopher Doyle’s article in the Christian Post: “When I was eight years old, I was sexually abused every week for an entire year. This created a lot of sexual confusion for me. When I became a teenager, I struggled with unwanted same-sex attraction (SSA) as a result of that abuse. …”

“Today, I am a professional counselor that helps young men struggling with their own sexuality. Every week, I get calls from mothers and fathers who are concerned about their teenagers’ homosexual feelings. I have worked with many of these teens in therapy (as young as 13) to help them understand and resolve their unwanted SSA. My hope is for these young people to work through their issues now so they don’t have to deal with the pain and heartache when they are older, like I had to do.”

Peter Saunders responds to UK doctors suggesting vaccines for gay men

Excerpts from Peter Saunders on his Christian Medical Comment blog: “The BMA has called for the HPV immunisation programme to be widened to include gay men, in an effort to tackle ‘alarming’ rates of HPV-related disease. … What the Pulse article [original source] doesn’t do is to enlarge on the little-known link between anal intercourse, HPV and anal cancer. Here are some facts. Anal cancer is rare in the general population but its incidence is on the rise for homosexual men. In the United Kingdom, about 1,100 people are diagnosed with anal cancer each year. The survival prospects depend very much on the stage at diagnosis but overall 25-40% of people diagnosed with anal cancer will die within five years.”

Dr. Nicolosi discusses how therapists can help SSA client’s diminish the power of porn

January 19, 2013

Excerpt from Dr. Nicolosi’s essay on the NARTH website: “The easy availability of pornography and consequent addiction to it has reached epidemic proportions that the media continues to ignore. For the man with SSA, gay porn becomes a particular problem because of the natural but frustrated desires it presents.”
“As I work with SSA men, it becomes apparent to them that its attraction often lies in its seeming fulfillment of three emotional drives: (1) Body Envy, (2) Assertive Attitude and (3) Need for Vulnerable Sharing. This picture does not fit every SSA man (as I always tell my clients, “If what I say does not ring true to you, then we will approach this issue differently), but it does fit many men’s inner experience. …”

The International Healing Foundation has initiated a petition calling for governments to stop attempts at discriminating against the rights of those with unwanted homosexual attractions to have professionals help them try to change their homosexual attractions (sexual orientation change efforts). Currently, California is seeking to make it illegal for minors to receive help to change their homosexual attractions. New Jersey and Pennsylvania are considering similar bans. The petition can be linked at

Workbook available for young men with unwanted homosexuality

Floyd Godfrey, a licensed professional counselor who struggled with same sex attractions as a young man, has created a workbook for young men struggling with the same attractions he struggled with. Information on the back of the book reads: “This workbook is written for young men who want to understand the emotional needs and wounds which generate homosexual feelings. It provides insight and understanding in a simple format. It can be used for parents, clergy, and counselors as a format for supporting young men who want to change. Goals and healing activities can be established from concepts in each chapter. Thousands have experienced change. ‘Born that way’ is a myth.”

Ex-gay Alan Medinger writes about emotional longing in men

February 11, 2013 By: Tom Coy Category: Homosexuality Causation, Religious Perspective, Sexual Orientation Change Efforts

January 8, 2013

Article by Alan Medinger copied from the PFOX website: “We have long recognized that the homosexual drive is not, at its root, sexual. The drive gains its direction and power from certain things inside a person, in many cases unmet needs or fears. Not always, but most often, in men it is an unmet need or a deficit, and in women, it is a fear.”

This article will deal solely with male homosexuality because I am going to discuss an unmet need that comes out of deficit in a boy’s relationship with his father. To be clear, women dealing with same sex attractions (SSA) can have father deficits too, and so true healing for them may at some point require them to see men as protectors (a fatherly role). But the dynamics of these father deficits are quite different, so I will focus on men with SSA. (more…)

Dr. Neil Whitehead analyzes epigenetics causation theory

February 11, 2013 By: Tom Coy Category: Clinical Science, Homosexuality Causation

January 3, 2013

Excerpt from Dr. Whitehead’s article on “…There have been numerous attempts within at least 13 different research fields to show a strong biological basis to homosexuality and all have failed. This new field – epigenetics – will probably join them. The authors make a good case that epigenetics should be included in the mix of factors contributing to homosexuality. I agree, but believe it will prove to be a minor contributor only, along with many other minor contributors.”

“Epigenetics is control of genetic expression by factors other than the genes. These factors may be pre-natal or post-natal (occurring at any time of life), often coming from the exterior environment, both biological and social. Epigenetic marks (changes in protein configurations around the DNA) can also be passed on to descendants – but only to some extent.”

Man who went through reparative therapy comments on bias of Dr. Oz Show

January 2, 2013

Excerpt from the JONAH website: “I am really disappointed in the biased slant the Dr. Oz show took with regard to Reparative Therapy( November 2012). With 3 men representing ‘Reparative Therapy’ and 7 against, including a gay celebrity icon and a ‘Harvard’ grad, it’s quite disturbing there appears to be is no such entity as ethical and even-handed journalism on this issue.”

“I am a man that has been actively involved in Reparative Therapy for about 5 years after playing around secretly through a tumultuous marriage. I was married for 14 years and I’m a father of 4 children, ages 8-14. Not only has my life been incomprehensibly enriched by my journey, I have a peer group of dozens and dozens of men who all believe in this process and whose lives have been enriched themselves through Reparative Therapy. My personal story is a bit lengthy and colorful… with many highs and lows… but overall, I’m so much happier now than ever. I have an amazingly large support group, including my family who all know my story. …”

Lawyer representing JONAH debates gay journalist

December 21, 2012

Chuck LiMandri is the lawyer representing Jews Offering New Alternatives for Healing against the lawsuit filed against them by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Mr. LiMandri recently debated a gay journalist who supports the action by the SPLC. The gay journalist claimed he was born a homosexual and efforts to change homosexuality were quackery. LiMandri pointed out that even gay organizations admit homosexuality is not innate and that sexuality is fluid. LiMandri also charged that the SPLC lawsuit was purely political because people who change their sexual orientation undermine the foundational precepts of the gay rights movement. The link to the video of the interview is here.
