Excerpts from the article “Network blasted for demonizing ex-‘gays'” on World Net Daily: … “‘They are so afraid of people discovering their sexuality and realizing that no one is born a homosexual and learning that they can actually change if they want to,’ said Greg Quinlan about the issue raised by a recent episode of CBS’ ‘Criminal Minds.’ … ‘It is for this reason that they preach against us with such hate and venom, attacking us for exercising our right of self-determination,’ he said.”

“The heart of the issue is that if people who leave the homosexual lifestyle exist, it disproves the assumption that some are born homosexual and cannot change, the prevailing belief in the homosexual community.”

… “The episode makes a startling claim as the killer is a person who received conversion therapy as a young man to overcome homosexual attractions. According to the characters in the show, the therapy caused him to believe that acting on his same-sex attraction is wrong. This belief causes him to violently attack people, because he is conflicted about his sexual orientation.”

“‘This man can’t accept his same-sex desires, but he can’t fight them either,’ one of the profilers explains. ‘He’s most likely been repressing all sexual urges for some time.’”

… “The show portrays members of the ex-‘gay’ community as ticking time bombs who are potential serial killers. In one scene, a computer screen shot features a report portraying ‘The Ex-Gay Movement.’ The description states that cautioning children to not have homosexual thoughts was harmful and that individuals merely claimed they had changed their same-sex attraction.”
“‘It is obvious that the ex-gay movement has become such a threat to the homosexual agenda that their allies in the media and entertainment industry now feel they have to work so diligently to discredit us,’ said Quinlan. ‘Why is this so high on their agenda? Is CBS now so desperate to try to get any kind of market share in primetime that they have to go this route?’”

… “Mat Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel, said it was outrageous that Hollywood would produce such a blatant misrepresentation of what occurs during conversion therapy.”

“‘It is shocking that they would be so blatant and so insensitive to simply disregard the reality of what takes place during this change therapy,’ Staver said. ‘They’re looking at some therapies that may have used shock treatment three decades ago that are no longer used. That’s like looking at somebody who performed a lobotomy on someone years ago and suggest that this is modern practice for the conversion therapy movement. It is simply inaccurate and irresponsible for the media to portray something that was done many years ago as being part of modern therapy techniques like this particular episode does.’”

“He explained the reality is that conversion therapy is no different than any other type of counseling being done today. ‘It’s no different than marriage therapy. It all revolves around talking and listening to the client while trying to find out what their objectives and goals are,’ he explained. ‘The client has the right to set their own counseling objectives and the counselor attempts to help them reach those objectives. It’s the same type of counseling a person would receive if they were struggling with infidelity or depression because they had just lost their job or lost a loved one.’”

“Harvey said the episode is part of a larger movement to portray conversion therapy as hateful while portraying ex-‘gays’ as unstable people who are a threat to everyone around them. ‘The homosexual lobby and its supporters are now deciding there is a desperate need to discredit people who want to partake in conversion therapy,’ Harvey said.” …
