Most Homosexuals Who Want to Convert Report Change

Just as California government outlaws allowing homosexuals to obtain counseling from psychologists to reduce same-sex attraction, a new survey shows that 55% of those seeking such counseling saw the frequency and intensity of their deviant sexual desires diminish.

-- From "Ex-gay group: 'New survey finds counseling to reduce homosexuality can be effective, beneficial'" by Steve Rothaus, Miami Herald 8/30/12
The survey was conducted by People Can Change, an international nonprofit organization of men who have successfully transitioned away from unwanted homosexuality who now support others seeking similar change.

The People Can Change survey found other reported outcomes from counseling were:
•53% of respondents said their unwanted homosexual behaviors were reduced or eliminated
•38% said heterosexual attractions emerged or increased
•58% said any remaining homosexual attractions became less troubling
•69% said their self-esteem improved
•69% said their shame diminished
•71% became more self-accepting
•66% felt more at peace
. . . Among respondents who had experienced serious suicidal thoughts at one time, 76% said that as a result of the counseling, those thoughts became either much less (60%) or somewhat less (16%) serious and frequent. In comparison, 11% said their suicidal thoughts increased.

From "Survey Suggests Unwanted Same-Sex Attractions Can Be Reduced Through Counseling" by Jeff Schapiro, Christian Post Reporter 9/1/12

"Hundreds of people are telling us their counseling worked, they benefited significantly, it helped them feel better about themselves -- and in some cases it even saved their lives," said Rich Wyler, founder and director of People Can Change, in a statement.

"Their voices have been largely silenced or ignored by pro-gay activists and mainstream media in favor of a more politically correct view, but the experience of these men and women is real. It is valid. They can tell you from firsthand experience that counseling to reduce homosexuality can be effective, even life-saving. Their voluntary choice to pursue change deserves respect."

Wayne Besen, executive director of Truth Wins Out (TWO), an organization that works to fight "anti-gay lies and the ex-gay myth," told The Christian Post that the People Can Change study is "completely unscientific and bogus," because it is based on a survey of people who already had connections with the organization.

From "15 groups to O'Reilly: Drop 'gay' radical [Wayne Besen]" posted at World Net Daily 8/23/12

Individuals representing a wide range of pro-family organizations have signed a request to Fox News host Bill O’Reilly to stop using homosexual activist Wayne Besen as a commentator on his program.

“When Fox News provides a forum to a radical homosexual activist known for employing inflammatory and hateful language in the service of promoting lies, the network becomes complicit in the damage done to the victims of Wayne Besen’s and the SPLC’s smear campaigns,” said the statement signed today by Mathew D. Staver of Liberty Counsel, Oklahoma State Rep. Sally Kern, Diane Gramley of the American Family Association of Pennsylvania and others.

The letter calls Besen a homosexual agitator.

. . . Besen and SPLC “are now filing complaints against therapists who counsel homosexuals with unwanted same-sex attractions, thereby denying gays the right of therapeutic self-determination.”
