It’s time to stop Political Correctness and Make ‘All Families Proud Again,’ Griggs Urges

People like Christopher Doyle, who overcame the pull of homosexuality in his own life,

No Story Here? People like Christopher Doyle, who overcame the pull of homosexuality, are often blacked out by the liberal media, who have become cheerleaders for all things “gay” and “trans.” Doyle, who is now happy in a natural married with children, founded Voice of the Voiceless, which, like PFOX, defends the rights of former homosexuals.

“Progressive activists are attempting to criminalize the simple act of seeking help – and assisting – with unwanted same-sex desires.”PFOX

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – “President Trump has an excellent opportunity to ‘make America great again’ by making all families proud again,” said Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays (PFOX) Executive Director Regina Griggs.

“PFOX extends a warm welcome to new President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, and wishes them many blessings as they begin a new era. As a group that serves families dealing with loved ones who are caught up in homosexuality, transgenderism and other temptations, we at PFOX are hopeful that the new administration will be open to hearing the accounts of people who have been systematically denied acknowledgement of their existence – ex-gays and ex-transgenders.

“For too long, the iron grip of political correctness and media bias have kept the truth from the American people – that many people have overcome unwanted [same-sex] desires and gone on to lead fuller, happier lives.

“There is a concerted, profoundly unAmerican campaign to criminalize counseling aimed at helping people with their desire to change. At PFOX, we believe in unconditional love, and also client self-determination and the freedom of therapists to provide counseling that does not violate their beliefs. Unfortunately, progressive activists are attempting to criminalize the simple act of seeking help – and assisting – with unwanted same-sex desires.

“Many ex-gays once wrongly believed that they were born gay and had no hope for change. But through faith experiences and counseling, they discovered that overcoming unwanted same sex attraction is possible and science has proven homosexuality is not genetic. Now, they deserve to have their stories told, and their struggle for dignity and freedom respected from the Oval Office on down.”

Christopher Doyle, founder and president of Voice of the Voiceless, came out of the homosexual lifestyle and is now happily married with children. Doyle is a professional counselor who helps others find freedom from homosexuality. Read his testimony, and a Mercator  interview with Doyle. To support the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund, which is defending JONAH against the well-funded SPLC, go HERE.

This Monday marked the second full week of testimony in the “Trial of the Century”, pitting Jews Offering New Alternatives for Healing (JONAH), a small, New Jersey-based Jewish non-profit organization, against the $340 million dollar Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

At issue are SPLC’s claims that JONAH committed consumer fraud by supposedly guaranteeing four former clients that they could go from “gay” to “straight” in 2-4 years. SPLC recruited these clients to sue JONAH in what has become another installment in the nationwide effort to prevent individuals with unwanted same-sex attractions from accessing counseling.

But SPLC’s case is unraveling at the seams, and the lies that mark this trial should be a lesson for the nation.

First, last Wednesday, under cross-examination by attorney for the defense Charles LiMandri of the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund, Dr. Carol Bernstein, an expert witness for the plaintiffs and a well-known psychiatrist and Vice Chair of the New York University (NYU) School of Medicine, conceded that sexual orientation is fluid and can change. She went on to state that she has not conducted any research on the effectiveness of sexual orientation change effort (SOCE) therapy or familiarized herself with any studies looking at harm from such efforts.

Additionally, when asked about the particular type of counseling, psychodrama, that JONAH uses in its practice, Dr. Bernstein replied that it was not a well-respected counseling modality, despite that fact that Columbia University, where she attended, offers a course for undergraduate students on the method, a fact of which she was unaware.

Christopher Doyle: Setting the Record Straight on ‘Gay Conversion’ Therapy for Minors

Christopher Doyle, founder of Voice of the Voiceless. Doyle overcome homosexuality in his own life and is now happily married and the father of three children. AFTAH urgers readers to support Doyle’s new organization defending ex-“gays,” Voice of the Voiceless.

Folks, Christopher Doyle–a former homosexual himself who is now living happily as a married heterosexual family man (somebody report him to Homosexual Hatemonger Wayne Besen!)–is doing outstanding work through his new organization, Voice of the Voiceless. Doyle is the lead pro-family advocate confronting the Orwellian campaign by Besen and other homosexual militants (and the Southern Poverty Law Center) to outlaw pro-heterosexual therapy for minors–apparently using big lies when necessary (see the “transgender tale” below).

If Besen and his ilk win, children and freedom lose. So please support Doyle and VOTF. This column originally appeared online in the Christian Post, March 13, 2014.–Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

Setting the Record Straight on ‘Gay Conversion’ Therapy for Minors

By Christopher Doyle

As a response to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals’ refusal to hear an appeal over the 2012 California law prohibiting Sexual Orientation Change Effort (SOCE) therapy for minors, it has been open season for anti-therapy activists. To compliment existing laws in New Jersey and the Golden State, legislation has also been introduced in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Washington, Ohio, Washington, D.C., Florida, Minnesota, New York, Maryland, Hawaii, Virginia, Vermont, Wisconsin, and Illinois. Pundits across the political spectrum are anticipating more laws to come in 2014.

A February 16 article in The Washington Times predicted that such laws would likely follow the path of states legalizing gay marriage, and perhaps even pave the way to a national ban if anti-ex-gay advocates were to gain more power on the federal level, while a February 12 editorial in the New York Times suggested that a wiser path would be for “victims” to use legal measures to quell the “deceptive practices” of those who offer SOCE therapy. After all, it’s a well-known fact that such therapy for minors has been “proven” to be “ineffective” and “harmful.”

However, recent legislative efforts by activists in Virginia and Washington have failed, and a hearing in Maryland on similar legislation was cancelled, partly because the lies and half-truths of activists are catching up to them. In Washington, a witness testifying in a January committee hearing said that a licensed therapist forced a child to watch pornography while in an ice bath so that the client would associate sexual arousal with pain. However, when questioned after the hearing, the woman refused to provide the name of the therapist and when it happened; nor was she willing to do any research to help uncover whether, if it had in fact happened, it was a licensed therapist.

In a senate hearing in February, a representative of the Washington Department of Health, which has jurisdiction over professional licensing and fields approximately 10,000 complaints a year, said that the current staff has 11 years of institutional knowledge and no one was aware of a single complaint alleging that a licensed therapist had attempted to coerce someone into not being gay.

This story sounds eerily similar to the disaster witnessed in New Jersey last year, when transgender activist Brielle Goldani claimed to have been sent to a “conversion therapy torture camp” in Ohio in 1997. Goldani alleged to have been electroshocked at the month-long “True Directions” camp in an attempt to make him, now her, straight. Yet, an investigation published at WorldNetDaily.com revealed that the entire testimony was a fraud, taken directly out of a Hollywood production starring drag queen RuPaul.
