Ex-Gays Ask Psychology Today to Stop Discriminating Against Clients that Seek Sexual Orientation Change Efforts and Therapists that Help Them

Washington, D.C. — On March 23, the leadership at Psychology Today received a letter from Voice of the Voiceless Advisory Board Member, Jeremy Schwab, asking the popular psychology magazine and website to stop discriminating against ex-gays, clients who experience unwanted same-sex attraction (SSA) and seek Sexual Orientation Change Effort (SOCE) therapy, and the licensed mental health practitioners who assist them. The letter follows a series of contradictory and discriminatory actions from Psychology Today, where they initially refused to remove a therapist who practice SOCE therapy from their publication’s directory, but then later capitulated to the bullying and intimidation of gay activists.

The letter, which can be viewed by clicking here, reads in part:

There are thousands of men and women like myself who experience unwanted SSA and choose a different path than the modern “gay” identity and life. For some, this decision involves their sincerely held religious and moral beliefs, for others, it is due to discovering that the “gay” construct simply does not work for them. I was one of those individuals . . . Even if you believe homosexual behavior to be healthy, surely you can see how healing emotional wounds and building self-image and self-worth is always a positive thing, regardless of your value and belief system. Reparative Therapy helped me reach a deep and lasting sense of congruity and wholeness, and I am forever thankful for those clinicians who offer this to clients.

The letter goes onto ask Psychology Today to stop discriminating against ex-gays and the clinicians who assist clients with unwanted SSA:

I realize that Psychology Today readers may have different views about homosexuality, but I hope you can see that SOCE therapy can be very a positive, affirming, and healing experience for individuals, like me, who have chosen a different path. I hope that you and Psychology Today will reconsider this decision and stop attempting to silence the voices of licensed practitioners who have helped thousands of us. I am one of them, and my voice deserves to be heard.

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military

Dr. Sonny Hernandez

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military is a field manual for US service members and military chaplains. This Gospel-Centered, polemical book exposes the homosexual agenda that adversely affects Religious Liberty for Christians. There are several homosexual activists that will demand equality and tolerance. However, homosexual activists are not so equal or tolerant towards anyone that disagrees with their position on same sex marriage or transgenderism. They will claim to love all, but they really do not mean all—they mean agenda. This is because the homosexual agenda has a definition for inclusivity—their way or the highway.
