Attack on Morality, part 6

My last two posts dealt with “How America Went Gay” by Charles W. Socarides M.D. which is posted at  Tonight, I will conclude that article.  Talking about his homosexual patients, the author stated at the conclusion of my last post: “They were not free.  They were not happy.  And they wanted to see if they could change.”  He continued on with these thoughts.

“Over the years, I found that those of my patients who really wanted to change could do so, by attaining the insight that comes with good psychoanalysis.  (I don’t place a lot of confidence in man being able to change his behavior by himself.  However, I do know that GOD has promised each new Christian the gift of the HOLY SPIRIT.  I do know that the HOLY SPIRIT is powerful if we allow HIM to work within our lives.  I do know that a Christian can change with the guidance, direction, and power of the HOLY SPIRIT.  Personally, I can not understand those people who claim to be Christian and then in the next breath claim that people can’t change their homosexual behavior.  Don’t they know the power of the HOLY SPIRIT???  Have they never received the HOLY SPIRIT and experienced HIS power?  IF not, no wonder they claim homosexual behavior can not change.  They are not Christians if they have not received the gift of the HOLY SPIRIT because all Christians receive the HOLY SPIRIT.  What an admission for them to make!!!—my addition)  Others found other therapies that helped them get to the bottom of their compulsions, all of which involved high motivation and hard work.  Difficult as their therapeutic trips were, hundreds and thousands of homosexual patients—about a third of them—are married today and happily so, with children.  One-third may not sound like a very good average.  But it is just about the same success rate you will find at the best treatment centers for alcoholics, like Hazelden in Minnesota and the Betty Ford Clinic in California.”

“Of course, I could bat .997 if I told all my patients in pain that their homosexuality was ‘a special call’ and ‘a liberation.’  That would endear me to everyone, but it would not help them.  (End sin by declaring there is no sin!!!  Easy but not true!!!—my addition)  It would be a lie—despite recent pieces of pseudo-science bolstering the fantasy that gays are born that way.’  The media put its immediate blessing on this ‘research,’ but we were oversold.  (“Behavior—the response of an individual, group, or species to its environment.” [Merriam Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Tenth Edition; Merriam-Webster, Incorporated; Springfield, Massachusetts, U.S.A.; © 1995; page 103.]  Homosexual behavior is just that—a behavior.  No one ever has to act out a behavior.  We have to breathe—that is not a behavior.  We never have to have intercourse—that is a behavior.  Our heart has to beat—that is not a behavior.  We never have to kill someone—that is a behavior.  We control our behaviors; not our genes!!!!!!!  We are not programmed robots!!!!!!!—my addition)  Now we are getting reports, even in such gay publications as The Journal of Homosexuality, that the gay-gene studies and the gay-brain studies do not stand up to critical analysis.  (The author of one so-called ‘gay-gene theory’ is under investigation by the National Institutes of Health for scientific fraud.)” [my underline]        

“Their former promiscuity may have looked a lot like ‘liberation.’  But it was not true freedom.  It was a kind of slavery. (It is slavery!!!  Slavery to the sin of homosexual behavior!!!—my addition)  And it was not a lifestyle.  With the onset of AIDS, as the playwright and gay militant Larry Kramer said in a 1993 interview, it turned out to be a death style. (Without repentance, it will more importantly be a SPIRITAL death style.  One that after death, one can not repent from!!!—my addition)  I have had some patients tell me, ‘Doctor, if I weren’t in therapy, I’d be dead.’

Testimonials from my recovered patients make me feel my work is worthwhile—despite regular demands from the gay rights community for my silence.  What would they have me do?  Pack my bags, find a new profession, lock up a lifetime of research and analysis, hide my truth under a bushel?  It is not my psychoanalytic duty to tell people they are marvelous when they are out of control, much less ask disingenuous rhetorical questions like, ‘What kind of God would afflict people with an ‘objective disorder’ in the disposition of their hearts?’

Giving GOD the credit for their gayness is a persistent refrain in much gay literature today, and I am saddened to see people of evident good will become unwitting parties to the blasphemy.  Gays ascribe their condition to God, but he should not have to take that rap, any more than he should be blamed for the existence of other man-made maladies—like war, for instance, which has proven to be very unhealthy for humans and for all other living things.  God does not make war.  Men do.  (Again, homosexuality behavior is a behavior that the person involved in the action must take responsibility for—he makes that decision.—my addition) [my underline]

And, when homosexuality takes on all the aspects of a political movement, it, too, becomes a war, the kind of war in which the first casualty is truth, and the spoils turn out to be our own children.  An exaggeration?  Well, what are we to think when militant homosexuals seek to lower the age of consensual sexual intercourse between homosexual men and young boys to the age of 14 (as they did in Hawaii in 1993) or (as they tried to do in England in 1994)?  In the Washington March for Gay Pride in 1993, they chanted, ‘We’re here.  We’re queer.  And we’re coming after your children.’

What more do you need to know?”  (It seems a lot more.  People seem to be hearing and believing only what they have been propagandized into hearing and believing.  The radical, militant homosexual activists are relying upon the general apathy of the general public and hoping that if they respond at all, it will be too late.  When one has fallen off of a cliff and floated 1/3rd of the way to the bottom, it is difficult to return to the top of the cliff without GOD’S assistance—my addition)

“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked.  A man reaps what he sows.  The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the spirit will reap eternal life.  Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6: 7-9)
