    Imo all priests are gay... why else would u pledge your life to a magic man in the sky, not marry a women and surround yourself with boys.... and we all know what they do to these boys.

    So we are back in the ‘50!! And who should decide they are really gay and there is nothing else to be done for them through psychiatry? After a year, two or we should keep them looked in mental institution until they commit suicide or get better?!? This will make parents treat gay children like seek people and have no love and understanding for them!!!

    Love is love however & whatever form that takes without judgement, this is all this life is really about Love nothing more nothing less, we are all just visitors on this planet for what is really a short time to learn this lesson, don't let fear or anyone stand in your way of anything you feel to be good, learn to raise your level of consciousness then love your child no matter what as this love is the most precious gift you can give, lesson learnt

    Oh no, not you too. Well, I guess it's better than condemning them outright.

    My God! Why people take a pair of words instead of the whole speech? Probably he refers to help not to "cure", but to get self comprehension, for both the child and the family, to accept.

    Taking advice from a man who has never had a sexual relationship in his life.....that we know of......and if he did it was riddled with guilt and prima fascia forbidden. SMH

    The mental illness is religion not homosexuality. It’s found in over 1,000 species but religion in only one.
