Times infiltrates Christian gay camp…

THERE was a bit of a storm recently after Iris Robinson told us about how gay people could be turned around with counselling (which seems to be a mixture of homebrew psychiatry and religion). Today, the Times has an interesting feature on how American evangelicals are trying to persuade gay people “find freedom from homosexuality through the love of Jesus Christ”. Their reporter attended a US gay camp (‘scuse the pun), and found those who’d gone through same sex attraction therapy experienced some mixed results. But having read the article, I was left with the impression that, whether it works or not, Iris didn’t really understand the complexities what she was advocating.
