    Comiskey’s statement about different approaches to “understanding and treating homosexuality” reveals a basic gap in his understanding right off the bat: what requires “treatment” is the individual’s own adjustment to the reality of his or her sexual orientation, not the orientation itself. This, of course, is the big hole in the idea of SOCE — that something as intrinsic as sexual orientation is in need of “treatment.”

    Maybe what needs to be treated is the individual’s fixation on destructive religious dogma.

    “Maybe what needs to be treated is the individual’s fixation on destructive religious dogma.”

    Exactly. I wonder what NARTH’s and Restored Hope’s position would be if therapists started treating people to help them change their faith.

    I venture they would explode with denunciations and with calls to ban such treatements.
