APA revises 'gay gene' theory - admits it's not a psychological disorder
on: May 14, 2009, 11:42:32 AM
http://www.onenewsnow.com/Culture/Default.asp...
The attempt to prove that homosexuality is determined biologically has been dealt a knockout punch. An American Psychological Association publication includes an admission that there's no homosexual "gene" -- meaning it's not likely that homosexuals are born that way.
For decades, the APA has not considered homosexuality a psychological disorder, while other professionals in the field consider it to be a "gender-identity" problem. But the new statement, which appears in a brochure called "Answers to Your Questions for a Better Understanding of Sexual Orientation & Homosexuality," states the following:
"There is no consensus among scientists about the exact reasons that an individual develops a heterosexual, bisexual, gay or lesbian orientation. Although much research has examined the possible genetic, hormonal, developmental, social, and cultural influences on sexual orientation, no findings have emerged that permit scientists to conclude that sexual orientation is determined by any particular factor or factors. Many think that nature and nurture both play complex roles...."
That contrasts with the APA's statement in 1998: "There is considerable recent evidence to suggest that biology, including genetic or inborn hormonal factors, play a significant role in a person's sexuality."
Peter LaBarbera, who heads Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, believes the more recent statement is an important admission because it undermines a popular theory.
"People need to understand that the 'gay gene' theory has been one of the biggest propaganda boons of the homosexual movement over the last 10 [or] 15 years," he points out. "Studies show that if people think that people are born homosexual they're much less likely to resist the gay agenda."
Matt Barber with Liberty Counsel feels the pronouncement may have something to do with saving face. "Well, I think here the American Psychological Association is finally trying to restore some credibility that they've lost over the years by having become a clearly political organization as opposed to an objective, scientific organization," he states.(Hear audio report)
With the new information from the APA, Barber wonders if the organization will admit that homosexuals who want to change can change.
"It's irrefutable from a medical standpoint that people can leave the homosexual lifestyle," he argues. "Homosexuality is defined by behavior. Untold thousands of people have found freedom from that lifestyle through either reparative therapy or through -- frankly, most effectively -- a relationship with Jesus Christ."
Frankly this says it al..........If you believe OneNewsNow.com is an important source for Christian news,
please consider a small tax-deductible gift for this service.

This is from the APA,2003

We have examined many causes for homosexuality in the preceding pages, both biological and social. And although an interesting topic of debate, no one theory or experiment leads to a definitive answer. Some believe that the characters found on Xq28 are the Holy Grail of homosexuality research, the elusive 'gay gene'. Others may place stock in the theories of Foucault and Halperin. Perhaps Simon LeVay did reveal to us that anatomy is the key to understanding the difference in sexual orientation. Perhaps there is no one answer, that sexual orientation, whether homosexual or heterosexual; gay, straight, lesbian, or bisexual, all are a cause of a complex interaction between environmental, cognitive, and anatomical factors, shaping the individual at an early age

LaBarbera stresses that even though elites will not recognize the change, that does not mean the change does not exist. In fact, both Barber and LaBarbera believe that God changes people through Christ -- regardless of the sin.
Lets cut to the chase shall we? The APA relased a paper in 2003, they never claimed there to be a " Gay Gene", so how did they revise anything? You little copy and paste job is from a Christian website, whos idea is simple, pray your Gay away. Go away Doctor Demented.

When President Romney takes office DOMA
will be defended in court and DADT will
make a huge comeback.
It's just a treatable pathology but you
avoid admiting you are sick and need help.
If Oven Mitt is elected he will not defend DOMA, you can not defend an unconstitutional law. It would have to be rewritten and then submitted to congress.

DADT, silly azz law. It never stopped a Gay person from joining the military. Simply made a ruel, we wont ask and you don't tell. Now if you did tell them you where Gay then you can be discharged from the service. The killing of DADT was needed. A persons sexual orientation has nothing to do with their ability to preform their duties. Homosexuality is not a physical or mental issue that prevents the discharge of ones duties. Yes a Gay man or woman is capable of defending the US Constitution.

Here's what's wrong: when you meatheads use data about lesbians to make claims about gay men. You try to get away with all the time. You do it with marriage data -- "Studies show lesbians make good parents; ergo, gay men will make good parents too."
Well, that's not science; that's stupidity.
OMG Professor Poof, I showed you proof that there are Gays ( men and women) in Hasidim . I posted a damn link. Then you claim that Homosexuality is only man on man and does not include lesbians. I posted the definition of homosexuality to show you that you where wrong. Now you fly off on some wild ass tangent about lesbians making good parents.

Look Professor Poof, you stated you where writing a book that there are no homosexual Hasidim Jews. I just wanted to show you that your book is flawed, thus stopping you from making a complete ass of yourself. From this point on, I promise that I will not stop you any longer. Charge on and show the rest of the world what we already know.

That's fact.
Do you know what fact is, fella, or must I explain that to you too?
Oh look at you....obsessed with only the male gays.

Fact - Closeted gays are capable of marrying women. They've been doing it for centuries. Do you know what a fact is, jackass, or must I explain that to you too?

Oh, and we're still waiting for you to prove that none of these men have inate attractions to the same gender. You're the one that claimed there were no homosexuals in the Hasidim community. Prove it fucktard.

RALEIGH -- North Carolina has become the 31st state to add an amendment on marriage to its constitution, with voters banning same-sex marriage and barring legal recognition of unmarried couples by state and local governments.

You can point fingers at certain groups and bark your hate, but what it comes down to is people voting.

I, and 99.9% of the gay community didn't "pay" for these perverts in anyway. My life has been completely uneffected by them. In fact, as in the vast majority of cases, I didn't even know anything about them until a jackass bigot like yourself brought them to my attention. The only one concerned with them is YOU.

My point was that if the gay community had stood up here (and now they do) and policed there selfs and when something like this happened they stood up and said it was wrong and that is not what the gay community was about then the focus of the new laws here would have been on the law breakers and not the whole gay community.......
Police ourselves? Sod off nitwit.

They have bought and paid for posters in both English and Spanish telling the gay community that the world is watching and how they act reflex on the community and if the community sees indecent behavior they will report it to the police...
Again we are not talking about some dimly lit club that one must be 21 to enter.......

Now is that to hard for you to understand?????
The only thing hard for us to understand is your deep seeded hatred of gay people. Your obsession with trying to credit an entire sect of people by the actions of two people has a name you know dear. It's called....BIGOTRY. THAT is what is hard for us to understand.

But please, don't let that fact (do we need to teach you about facts you stupid jackass?) get in the way of your repitition.

Two things happened, the APA got caught up in the gay pedophile normalcy and they almost lost their credentials when they published a moral affirmative statement about homosexuality in the DSM-IV. They were forced to revise it and now we have the DSM-IV-TR. The World Health Organization almost shut them down.
Gays have always held the APA up as Gods, but the WHO represents over 190 countries while the APA only partially represents the U.S.
I love it when you desperate bigots think that trying to belittle the APA helps you out in some way!!! You reek of desperation!!!

AS you have seen, with the State of California as an example. You can not simply put it on a referendum and pass a law. What will happen when SCOTUS makes a determination that laws baring same sex marriages are unconstitutional? States like North Carolina will have but two choices,1 resend the law or 2 succeed from the Union. I tend to think it will be #1
