Despite the pro-gay bias of the reporter ex-gay Mike Davidson’s testimony and opinions are not distorted in this interview. Here is an excerpt from the April 21, 2012 article in The Telegraph: – “I’m expecting a firebrand. What I get is a gently spoken, slightly stooping man with a South African accent, who lives in a neat detached house in the countryside south of Belfast. His wife, Lynore, brings coffee and chocolate biscuits. They have been married for 32 years, during which time he claims to have been turned away from homosexuality by a combination of counselling, prayer and psychotherapy. He also claims to be able to help others do the same.

“Such therapy has been going on quietly in Britain for years, particularly among Evangelicals, but has only recently come to public attention through the efforts of those who oppose it. So is he really suggesting – as they say he is – that homosexuality can and should be cured?”

“‘We don’t consider it a disease,’ says Davidson, who works under the banner of the Core Issues Trust. ‘There are plenty of people who work in a therapeutic context to achieve life goals. There are some people who have tried gay; it doesn’t work for them. It’s not mixing with their life circumstances. They want to move out of it. They deserve to receive professional help that is well trained, well regulated and ethical. That’s what we are trying to achieve.’”
