This is the second part of a four-part investigation into the USA Christian netherworld of "reparative therapy," a disputed practice to convert gays and lesbians into heterosexuals (read the first part)

The article starts so ... well?:



Christian counselor and licensed clinical social worker, is explaining to me what causes homosexuality. "Take the young boy who is more sensitive, more delicate, who doesn't like rough-and-tumble, who is artistic," he says. "He can't hit the ball, fire the gun or shoot an arrow. There is a high correlation between poor eye-hand coordination and same-sex attraction."

And how's this - every played with willy?:



The causes of homosexuality, Levy explains, are many, but childhood loneliness figures prominently. "When a child is neglected -- if not abused, then neglected or isolated -- loneliness is often experienced as genital tension," Levy says. "When kids are understimulated, they play with themselves, and the source of greatest stimulation is obviously your genitals or your mouth." I tell Levy I did not think I was a lonely kid. "There are more reasons," he responds. "I got more."


And the end:

Homosexuality "is not just another flower in God's garden," Levy says. "This is something that happens to people that can be fixed. And if someone comes seeking relief from this suffering, we would be wrong not to offer them relief."


I suspect blacks will be next with Michael Jackson having shown the way.

Gotta love those right-wing Christian Americans ... isn't there someone out there wanting to invade them and change their fundamental ways - oh, yeah, them ... anyone else, a little more grown up?
