Statement from Christian Concern’s Christian Weekly News: “Di Hodgson of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) has admitted that the organization’s opposition to therapy for those with unwanted same-sex attraction is not simply based on scientific evidence. She said on BBC Radio 4’s Sunday programme: ‘We have taken a view in a way which is regardless of the scientific findings. We still believe that it is unethical to seek to agree or to work towards changing someone’s sexual orientation through psychotherapy’ (you can listen to it here at 3m 4s in).”

“The disregard for science and emphasis on ethical opposition is worrying for both those who want the therapy and those who want to be able to provide it. It threatens to sideline people with Christian views on sexual ethics in this area.”
