Legacy of Lies

Leading voice calling homosexuality 'normal' has died

May 6, 2020  0

One of the modern psychologist-advocates claiming homosexuals are "born that way" has died, but his unscientific doctrine lives on.

Doctor Richard Friedman — psychiatrist, professor and author of the 1988 book Male Homosexuality: A Contemporary Psychoanalytic Perspective, claimed homosexual tendencies are not the result of a mental or emotional disorder and it is not a condition needing a cure.

Friedman was one of the modern advocates promoting the normalization of same-sex sexual relationships.

It's an effort homosexual activists have been pushing since the 1960s, culminating with the American Psychiatric Association dropping homosexuality from its list of mental disorders in 1973.

The late Dr. Charles Socarides, an expert on homosexuality and cofounder of the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality, called it "the medical hoax of the century." 

Other modern researchers have disproved efforts to claim homosexuality is natural.

A 2016 study, "Sexuality and Gender: Findings from the Biological, Psychological and Social Sciences," published in The New Atlantis, concluded "[T]he idea that people are 'born that way' is not supported by scientific evidence." 

It went on to declare: "While there is evidence that biological factors such as genes and hormones are associated with sexual behaviors and attractions, there are no compelling causal biological explanations for human sexual orientation."

Homosexual activists, however, continue to claim science is on their side while trying to silence critics.
