1A Academic conference seeks to normalize pedophilia[i]
I hope he doesn’t mind if I share it here:
power to conceive, incubate, nurture, rear, role model and prepare young, vulnerable human life for adulthood is to serve the security, development and well-being of children born of a male-female marital union. Procreation serves the couple, their extended family and the community at large at such a fundamental level that the distinct protections of authentic marriage must be reserved and preserved. True, natural marriage serves the common good in unique and vital ways that same-sex relationships just do not.
Defining a professed commitment in a same-sex relationship as a marriage because the assertion of commitment bears superficial similarities to authentic marriage or to other committed arrangements such as between two business partners, an employer and employee, or a long term customer service relationship, truly institutionalizes a lie to gratify a particular constituency. To classify such relationships as marriage would qualify them for the same prerogatives regarding parenting, adoption, foster care and similar special considerations appropriate for marriages when relationships defined merely by sexual or other narrowly selective behavior, by their very nature, fall short of the needs of children.
privileges and responsibilities in recognizing the differences, for
example, between a lawyer and school teacher, an accountant and
electrician, etc. To normalize and institutionalize placement of children with same sex couples would be systemic injustice and abuse of minors.
groups based upon their sexual behavior and preferences over the welfare, needs and interests of vulnerable children, invalidates its role as an authoritative professional organization serving the truth entrusted to its professionals, scientists and clinicians on behalf of the human beings they serve. Clearly, true psychologists, genuine mental health professionals, need a new organization to represent their fidelity to truth, professional ethics, scientific integrity, and service to all humanity.
I’m not saying the process is easy, and it may depend on degree of how deeply-rooted the SSA is, but most folks report varying degrees of help. Fordham University also published a 2010 journal study confirming such help is possible. http://www.onenewsnow.com/Culture/Default.aspx?id=991110
3A American Psychological Association supports same-sex ‘marriage’ 157-0[vi] Note footnote on this.
Quinlan knows first-hand that the "sexual orientation change efforts" are effective, as they helped him leave the homosexual lifestyle. This study, he contends, is a blow to activist groups that claim homosexuals are "born that way" and that homosexuality is merely one variation of normal human sexuality
"I accepted the manufacturer's guidelines and decided to follow them, and they're working for me, as they are for thousands of others who've decided to leave the homosexual lifestyle," he shares.
The PFOX president says that if a homosexual is open to hearing what the Bible teaches, then it is essential in helping a person halt homosexual conduct and developing heterosexual views. He adds, though, that Christians often take the wrong approach on the subject
