Conversion therapy is good – The Stream

0

Sexual orientation change efforts (SOCE), not conversion therapy, are the proper term for efforts to reduce unwanted sexual attraction and focus on talk therapy. The last Dr J Show guest, Fr. Paul Sullins, Ph.D., delved into the studies that claim “conversion therapy” is harmful to patients and found that the original researchers had misinterpreted their own data.

Find out the real results for those who undergo SOCE, and why the facts don’t make it to the mainstream media, by watching this video.

Dave Rubin and the Death of Secular Conservatism

God intends our participation in parenthood to be participation in love, and not, as in the recent announcement of popular internet fame, in commerce, technology, and voluntary act.

When ‘conservative’ celebrity David Rubin and his friend announced they would have two babies using donated eggs and surrogates, other ‘conservative’ celebs broke down to congratulate him.

Before we blast Rubin and his coterie of flattering followers, let’s get the most important issue out of the way: the two babies he ordered with his friend are beloved by God. In fact, every human being that has ever been conceived is born precisely because God loves that person and wants them to exist.

Whether the child was conceived as part of a carefully planned medical procedure or in a fit of senseless passion, whether conceived in the backseat of an excited teenager’s car or in the loving embrace of a a married couple, God loves the child. The term “procreation” reflects the fact that human action is only part of the process. (Honestly, how many failed IVF cycles does it take to convince us that we humans are ultimately not in control?) God’s action is most fundamental. And God’s contribution is always love.

These two children that Rubin and his companion have ordered, together with a predetermined delivery date, no doubt contractually guaranteed, have the right to exist. No matter what parents may or may not have done, we should never regret the existence of a child.

Truth bomb: how to think transgender

This video from the Ruth Institute 4and Annual Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution is the panel’s Q&A session, “Putting the Pieces Together: Equipping the Pro-Life Movement to Confront Trans-Mind Clients.” Moderated by radio host and pro-life activist Jim Havens, the panel includes detransitioner Walt Heyer, activist Erin Brewer and attorney Jane Robbins.

Are lawsuits brought against doctors for mutilating children? How do you handle someone forcing others to use a preferred pronoun? How does the transition affect family members? Is there a relationship between disordered views of sexuality or abuse and gender dysphoria? Find the answers here.

Healthy Relationships After Abuse, Part 1: Revictimization

Excerpt from Faith Hakesley”Ask a Survivor” blog at the Ruth Institute.

Many of my followers have asked how they can avoid being re-victimized after being sexually abused, as they want to build good healthy relationships with the ultimate goal being marriage. Since these questions about relationships, marriage, and revictimization can go hand in hand, I will address these questions throughout my upcoming blog posts.

In this blog post, I refer to direct and intentional abuse. I make this distinction because victims can feel re-victimized in various situations. For example, medical evaluations or interviews with the police can evoke very painful memories, making the victim feel like they are reliving their past trauma. The revictimization referred to here concerns victims who fall prey to an aggressor.

People who have already been victimized have a higher probability of being victimized again later. First of all, no matter how many times someone has been abused, they are never their fault. Unfortunately, survivors who come forward repeatedly usually find their stories met with confusion and disbelief.

Some reasons for revictimization include:

  • Adaptation to abusive situations and environments — victims come to expect abuse as part of their lives. The violence becomes familiar and the victim learns that she is unable to avoid the violence. This is called learned helplessness.
  • Low self-esteem — Victims of abuse typically struggle with feelings of shame and blame, resulting in very low self-esteem. It’s easy to fall into the mindset of “I deserved it. I did something to deserve this. For many victims, the abuse becomes who they are.
