Therapist Disciplined For Helping Gays

This is bizarre and shows just how demented things have become in England (and here).

A man walks into a therapists office, declares that he wants some Christian counseling for his unwanted same sex attraction. The Christian therapist tries to help the man.

Turns out the man is actually an undercover gay activist who reported her to the PC gestapo and now the counselor has been disciplined. You may not even disrespect homosexuality by trying to help people who don't want to be homosexual. I quote "You must affirm their homosexuality even if they will not."

Crazy.

"The BACP wanted me to have some re-training -- I have to see other people, and I have to write that, in fact, I have learned to think differently," the therapist accounts. "Well, I'm afraid that isn't appropriate, particularly if a Christian comes to me saying that they're distressed by the nature of their homosexuality and want me to help."

In fact, she says, several Christians struggling with same-sex attraction have contacted her for therapy, even though the professional association has instructed her that that is not an appropriate way to work with a client. In Strudwick's case, she was told that she should not have taken his claim that he was depressed because of his homosexuality at face value. The BACP calls Pilkington's work to help homosexuals "reckless," "disrespectful," "dogmatic" and "unprofessional," as the guidelines issued by professional associations force psychotherapists to "affirm" homosexuality, even if the client does not.

Crazy.

Of course, if a heterosexual wanted help to become gay, I am sure that would be fine.

Hmmmm. Sadly ironic much? This is a problem with modern conservatives....we use the same tactics as leftists, but now adapted to conservative ends. Of course this is not to say that ends dont matter, but rather that gotcha journalism based on lying ought to be condemned, regardless.

Yet if the person said he was a man but wanted to be a woman, the State would be wanting to pick up the tab.

The problem with this incident is not the set up. It's the response of the professional association.
That you think this is equivelant to the work done by Lila Rose, et al, just shows that the relativism is on your side, equating abortion with ministry to gays who request help.

No, it just shows that I equate lying with ... oh, yes, LYING!
I do not equivalate people who get their children murdered with those who seek healing!

Make sure to let the Gestapo know there are Jews in your attic when they come asking.

And remember to say "Shalom" as well. It will make the Jews feel so much better when they're dragged away to be gassed. After all, your moral purity is so much more important than the innocent being led to the slaughter.

As we have already reached the third reich territory:
The men who tried to assasinate Hitler never pretended it was a good or righteous thing to do, they knew and admitted that they were doing mortal sin. BUT they were ready to take this upon themselves to rid us of the dictator and murderer.
So, if all the "liars for Jesus" admit that it is sinful but are ready to take this upon their consciences at their own souls peril and throw themselves upon Jesus for forgiveness - then I might see it differently.
But to try to tell me it´s all right? No way, sorry.

BTW, "Shalom" beecause I come for a jewish family that liver in Germany in the 1930´s and 40´s so please just STFU!

Shalom

Assassinating Hitler is mortal sin now?

I'd dearly love to know what school of moral theology that is—in mine, "You cannot do evil that good may come of it."

What if Europe had been more peaceful without 6 million Jews? Would that make the Nazis "taking this upon themselves" okay?

Sorry, taboo-code boy, but killing is not always wrong—only killing the innocent. Hitler was not innocent. The Jews were. Therefore assassinating Hitler was not a sin at all, let alone a mortal one.

The idea that one may commit a sin "for the greater good" is at the back of every genocide, persecution, and terror-campaign in human history.

so please just STFU!

While we're sitting in our confessional booth confessing about our lying, I do hope you're in the next booth confessing your lack of charity. Or are some sins less mortal than others?

Am I the only one who thought of 1984 by Orwell? That may not be the correct reference... but trying to retrain us to think correctly is a scary, terrifying actually, thought.

Dear dipsticks!

I don't give a wit about the undercover tactic, my objection is about the state penalizing her when she did nothing wrong.

Yeah, because people just "become" gay. It must be interesting to live in that completely bizarre and fucked up alternate reality you've created for yourself.

"assassinating Hitler was not a sin at all, let alone a mortal one."

OK, that´s it for me! Have fun!

Here’s a scenario for you:

An activist lies to gain entrance to a health professional and coerce that professional into providing a service that the activist sees as morally abhorrent and unethical. Activist then reproduces a recording of the meeting for an international audience posting it primarily to friendly websites. Those who support the health professional decry the tactics of the activist and claim that those tactics prove the bad faith of everyone who falls on the activists’ side of the debate.

Now, who is the activist and who is the health professional and which one of them acted in a morally and ethically correct manner which can be universally known by reason based on nature, hmm?

And about those Jews in the attic:

Nazi: Are you hiding Jews in your attic
Me: Nope
Nazi: oh, well in that case, thanks for your trouble we'll be on our way now... Actually, no, I think we'll tear your house apart looking for Jews and if and when we find any we'll torture you to death in front of your children and then gas them for good measure. Now, are you sure you don't have any Jews in your attic?
