Posted on 11/04/2019 3:34:13 PM PST by Olog-hai
German Health Minister Jens Spahn sent a clear, important signal on Monday when he declared that homosexuality is not a disease and therefore does not need therapy to be treated. He fleshed out his plans to ban so-called gay conversion therapy in Germany. The practice purports to transform homosexuals into heterosexuals. According to Spahn, anyone still found offering such conversion therapies will face up to one year in jail or a steep fine.
Spahns step is both important and, unfortunately, still rather timely. Thats because many Germans are probably not even aware that each year, thousands of teenagers and adults are subjected to conversion therapy for the purpose of changing their sexual identity. This is inhumane, and there is no evidence that such treatment can permanently alter a persons sexual orientation. What is known, however, is that such therapies can cause depression, anxiety disorders and significantly increase the chances of a person committing suicide.
Not only that, in some European Union member states, such as Poland, gay and lesbian people are increasingly facing discrimination. Similarly, in the Balkans, every day members of the LGBT+ community live in fear of violence and discrimination. And in Russia, homosexuality is criminalized as a form of non-traditional sexual relationship gays and lesbians who refuse to hide their sexual identity risk steep fines or even jail time.

A mis-statement, yes?
Yes, it is. It is a disease caused by a lesion that interferes with the reproduction system. Whether the lesion is anatomic, physiological, or psychological, or a combination thereof, remains to be established.
No-it isn’t a disease-it is an emotional/mental problem that should be treated with psychotherapy/conversion therapy...
That may be true but homos are diseased...
They seek to normalize their behavior to achieve easier access to MOLEST YOUR CHILDREN!
Thus, "conversion therapy" is in fact RAPE THERAPY and should never be banned.
On page 37, the other relevant result relates to men.
The 13th research question addressed, of homosexual men who have been molested, what percentage were molested before self-identification as homosexual men, and what percentage were molested after self-identification as homosexual? Of homosexual men who were molested, 68% were molested before self-identification as homosexual, and 32% were molested after self-identification as homosexual.

The leftards have been looking for that mythical “gay gene” since the 70’s and never found it. Even this year, a few articles came out that there never was one..
The faggots knowingly go homo because they want to.
Millions of people get tattoos or plastic surgery on healthy bodies. You don’t have to consider homosexuality a disease to want to get rid of it. Why is spain interfering with adults. What happened to my body my choice?

It’s a behavioral disorder, nothing more or less. I happen to know several “former” gays. Guess they weren’t born that way after all, huh? I know I’m not allowed to make that observation. I need to just go on pretending that never happened.
It’s a fetish that deserves no more credence than the foot lickers, scat eaters, and goat humpers.
Homosexuality is not a disease. It’s a mental disorder.
Then if it is discovered that a new found faith in Jesus changes sexual orientation in homosexuals, does that make faith in Jesus illegal too?
It is one of mans greatest inhumanities to deprive said afflict of a pathway to successful rehabilitation. They will burn for it at judgement.
False choice. Most people don’t consider it a disease.
At its core it is spiritual hunger and self worship exhibited by rejection of original design.
It may not “be” a disease, but there is proof positive that engaging in homo-sex can carry diseases, some fatal.
