FURTHER proof that those who hate LGBT the most are the ones who are deepest in the closet.
Dr Melvyn Iscove, 72, was registered as a psychiatrist with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario, and claimed to be able to ‘cure’ patients of ‘same-sex attraction’.
However, Dr Iscove – who was described as having a “special interest in the treatment of patients with problems related to homosexuality” – was handed a suspension this week for having sex with patients.
The committee alleged that Iscove, who believes homosexuality is a “sexual disorder”, engaged in “mutual masturbation and oral sex” with two male patients during sessions, and had anal sex with one male patient.
It’s heartbreaking to know that even adults feel the need to cure themselves of something that isn’t a disease. He’s proof that it’s not the Christian God who hates homosexuals, it’s his followers.
Humans of New York has profiled a man who was subjected to gay ‘cure’ therapy.
At present, it is legal in nearly all US states to attempt to ‘cure’ homosexuality, even though experts say the practice can be deeply harmful.
The state of New York moved to outlaw gay ‘cure’ practises for minors last year, but adults are still free to seek treatment.
Photojournalist blog Humans of New York, which is run by Brandon Stanton, posts daily pictures of everyday people around New York – and attracts a huge following across the internet.
A picture from the blog went viral this week, featuring a man opening up about his relationship with faith and sexuality.
I could definitely see myself voting for Chris Christie if he were to run for president in 2016.
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie plans to sign a bill Monday barring licensed therapists from trying to turn gay teenagers straight, making New Jersey the second state to ban so-called conversion therapy, along with California.
The bill passed both houses of the New Jersey Legislature with bipartisan support in June. Assemblyman Tim Eustace, who sponsored the bill and is openly gay, described the therapy as “an insidious form of child abuse.”
In a signing note accompanying the bill that will be made public Monday, Christie said he believes people are born gay and that homosexuality is not a sin. That view is inconsistent with his Catholic faith, which teaches that homosexual acts are sins.
