Texas GOP endorses 'reparative therapy' for gays

http://news.msn.com/us/texas-gop-end...erapy-for-gays

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The Texas Republican Party now endorses so-called "reparative therapy" for gays, under a new platform given final approval at its annual convention Saturday.

The new anti-gay language never came up for debate before roughly 7,000 delegates ratified a Texas GOP platform that tea party groups succeeded in pushing further to the right, including winning a harder line on immigration.

One influential tea party group called Texas Eagle Forum had urged the party to support psychological treatments that seek to turn gay people straight. It comes after Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie last fall signed a law banning such therapies on minors, and California has a similar law.

The Fort Worth Convention Hall cheered when party leaders announced that Christie finished a distant 11th in a 2016 presidential straw poll.

"There's a very, very small group of people who want to keep the party in the past. We were here today to try to pull the party into the future," said Rudy Oeftering, vice president of the gay conservative group Metroplex Republicans. "The only way the party can go into the future is to start listening to young people, to start listening to people who have gay family members."

Oeftering and allies had lined up to speak against the therapy language that had been added earlier this week. But they never got a chance to address delegates, because a parliamentary motion to approve the full platform was called first.

Under the new plank, the Texas GOP recognizes "the legitimacy and efficacy of counseling, which offers reparative therapy and treatment for those patients seeking healing and wholeness from their homosexual lifestyle."

The American Psychological Association and other major health organizations have condemned such counseling, which generally try to change a person's sexual orientation or to lessen their interest in engaging in same-sex sexual activity. The groups say the practice should not be used on minors because of the danger of serious psychological harm.

"The platform reflects what the people in the Republican Party have asked for, and that should be no surprise: family values, protection of marriage between one man and one woman and everything that goes along with that," said Jonathan Saenz, president of the conservative group Texas Values and a convention delegate.

Gay conservatives did come away with a rare victory at the convention: Winning the removal of decades-old language in the state party platform that states, "homosexuality tears at the fabric of society."

They'll try. And it will make sense to them only, which is why I didn't even bother asking.

I didn't get it from any satirical site at all, never mind the one mentioned in the quoted link. But let's face it from that link you quoted it says: "Is there any harm in taking too many photographs of oneself? For most people, probably not. If, however, it’s feeding into one’s pre-existing narcissism or narcissistic tendencies, then yes, it may be only reinforcing those kinds of negative traits."

There are others in that manual that are questionable...even the DSM-V is coming under questioning for it's lack of science.

Ha! Ha! Ha!

Remember you passed on as fact that the Constitution was not written on hemp but parchment, when that was an original copy that was transcribed.

You also used a ridiculous link full of false claims about homeopathics that you thought proved your point, that was debunked once read. Though I don't think you ever really understood the original point being made and went full strawman on that one.

The question is why are you projecting? That's what should be in there as a disorder.

Oh and Caffeine Use Disorder is really in the DSM. This by a group that prescribes pharmaceuticals for their own treatments.

Per Market Watch on DSM-V:

Hoarding is a disorder
Caffeine Withdrawal is a disorder
Premenstrual Symptoms are a disorder called Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder
Cannabis Withdrawal is a disorder

Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder - RNR suffers from this one

Nice deflection, but you are still wrong anyways. It is not a diagnosable disorder in the DSM V nor was it in the DSM IV-TR.

It is in Section III of the DSM V which are categories, symptoms, and behaviors that require further research indicating they are not confident on the available evidence yet to call it a diagnosable disorder. Yes, your video did say this.

Projecting again? Or do you just admire the Soviet system on dissenting opinions?
Nevertheless, you have nothing once again.Certainly no proof I got it from that site which I never heard of.
It's possible where I read it relied on that since it went viral is all that can be considered instead of making ASSumptions.

really?

a source that YOU relied on might have in turn relied on a non-factual source?

The most entertaining part is when you rehash your failed arguments and claim victory. Like the Constitution material one. Man that was a riot.

Does anyone make more matter of fact statements based off of some random thing they read somewhere? As if it is just some well known thing that is not disputable? We all get fooled every now and then by something on the internet but maybe a quick google search would benefit BEP. The worst part is she won't just admit to making mistakes and instead digs deeper and deeper.

We discussed this already. Drafts of a document are not THE document. They are DRAFTS. Drafts were written on hemp. THE CONSTITUTION was written on parchment.
