Prior to December 14, 1973, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) considered same-sex attraction a disorder. The disorder was listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders-II (DSM-II) under the label, Homosexuality. Psychiatrys authoritative voice influenced public opinion, which at the time was negative toward both sodomy and the types of people who engaged in such acts. Although public sexual activity in parks and public restrooms contributed to societies negative views, scientific opinion was crucial in the public attitude.
"Besides the ALA, I was also very involved, along with many other people, in efforts to get the American Psychiatric Association to drop its listing of homosexuality as a mental illness. Psychiatrists were one of the three major groups that had their hands on us. They had a kind of control over our fate, in the eyes of the public, for a long time. Religion and law were the other two groups that had their hands on us. So, besides being sick, we were sinful and criminal. But the sickness label infected everything that we said and made it difficult for us to gain any credibility for anything we said ourselves. The sickness issue was paramount."
They have, for all practical purposes, conquered psychiatry and law. The only group that still largely stands in their way is religion, and they are steadily making inroads there, or at least creating the public perception that they are.
All of their malice and energies can, and will be, now focused on Christianity, make no mistake. Never believe the fake assurances given by homosexual apologists that churches would never be forced to affirm homosexuality or to acknowledge counterfeit "marriage." It is coming, and we'll face confiscation of our property and incarceration when we resist.
