Default Help for Those Struggling with SSA

I am writing a book called Faith & Reason, Healing Your Same-Sex Attraction and Cultivating Your Heterosexuality. The book debunks the pervasive belief that people are born gay.

Objective scientists, who have studied same sex attraction and the neuro-plasticity of the brain know that pathways in the brain concerning our gender identity are shaped by our neuronal pathway building. These pathways begin to make connections at a very young age (18 months to 36 months). The lack of positive gender affirmations, coupled with the lack of emotional and physical bonding with same sex parents and peers, often result in subliminal gender confusion. Many gays admit to having experienced trauma, sexual and emotional, as well.

Even gay researcher Lisa Diamond has admitted that no one is born gay. It is rather the post-natal influences (and perhaps an inborn higher level of sensitivity) that contribute to these individuals' same-sex attractions. By the time a confused child becomes a teenager, the same-sex attraction becomes sexualized. As Richard Cohen, a renown former homosexual and founder of the International Healing Foundations says, "No one heals a childhood wound with sex. Throwing yourself in the arms of a same-sex partner will never affirm your need for affirmation of your true sexual identity."

Of course, my book flies in the face of the APA. Please note that the APA's task force that reviewed the 1973 removal of homosexuality as a mental disorder was comprised of 7 individuals, 6 admittedly open gays and 1 gay activist. No one who questioned the 1973 ruling, including NARTH president Joseph Nicolosi, was allowed to be on the task force. The APA has repeatedly shown subjective results. Even the 1973 decision was decided by a vote. Q. What branch of science decides scientific fact with a vote? A. The APA.

The book is accompanied by dozens of stories of those who have chosen to believe in God's mercy and grace and who have turned their lives completely around, something they thought they could never have done. Many have gotten married, had children and are enjoying grandchildren. They did this transformational work through repentance, knowledge of the causes of same-sex attraction (SSA), and with help from pastors and/or therapists who were authentic sexual reparative specialists. (All that you read about in the papers about "electro-shock" therapy is invented. These stories, promoted by gay activists, are currently being used to help ban Sexual Reorientation Conversion Effort) SOCE therapy for minors. No one has even been proven to use that type of therapy for any condition for the last 40 years. It is a gross dishonesty that is hurting thousands of children who have been raped. All these victims are allowed to get is gay affirming therapy. These types of false stories in the press have actually helped ban SOCe therapy in California, New Jersey and the District of Columbia. If you want to help stop these types of bans in your state, contact your legislators and if you can, please support the work of voiceofthevoiceless.info, an advocacy group for ex-gays.)

The book also includes information from therapists. One therapist recently told me that 50% of all those who get help from him succeed in transforming their sexual attractions. Why don't the others succeed? Those who do not succeed refuse to do the homework. They do not come to their sessions and they truly do not let go of on-going sin, (i.e. masturbation/porn, meeting with those who trigger past experiences, etc.)

So, there is real hope for those with unwanted SSA. The brain can reorder its pathways, but it takes faith and reason.

I am asking for prayers for the success of my book. I am working with a Catholic publisher who has proven to be valuable in helping me shape the book. Please pray that it gets finished promptly and that it may touch the lives of those suffering with unwanted SSA.

Dolce and Gabbana, who are openly gay and owners of a famous fashion brand, speak in support of traditional marriage, between a man and a woman:

Quote:
“We didn't invent the family ourselves.”

Quote:
During Friday's interview, Dolce said that the issue of family “not a question of religion or social status, there are no two ways about it: you are born and there is a father and a mother. Or at least there should be.”

Quote:
And later you go and explain to these children who the mother is.”

And now, children (now grown ups) who have been raised by homosexual parents write in support of what Dolce and Gabbana have said:

Bravo, Mary's Child. What a much needed book. You have my prayers for success in this endeavor, and may those who have ears listen.
