The best I've read on the subject by a known authority.

You can always tell whose ox has been gored, or whose agenda has been discredited as in this case. They go straight for the 1-star comments. Anytime you see 4 and 5 stars and then 1 stars with nothing in between you know that ideology is at work. I'm offering 5 stars simply to balance the ledger and more accurately represent reality.

interpretation that has shifted the focus of the debate from symptoms to root causes. The crux of Ruth Tiffany Barnhouse argument is that 'the homosexual condition involves legitimate developmental needs, the fulfilment of which has been blocked by an underlying ambivalence to members of the same sex'. But while the argument is certainly controversial, it involves a much-needed restatement of the traditional Christian distinction between the homosexual condition and its expression in homosexual activity.

The homosexual, says Dr Barnhouse , "has suffered from some deficit in the relationship with the parent of the same sex; and there is a corresponding drive to make good this deficit - through the medium of same-sex or 'homosexual' relationships".

Sexual expression is not the key to homosexuality, but the inner orientation. Says Dr Barnhouse , "Homosexuality is not essentially a sexual condition..... Some people have a complete same-sex identity (heterosexuality) while others have an incomplete same-sex identity (homosexuality). The goal is the attainment of a complete same-sex identity; and, where the process of growth has been checked, the reparative drive of same-sex love is the solution to the problem of underlying deficits".

Thus Christians who argue that only homosexual practices need to be discouraged or stopped are wide of the mark. It is not enough to simply stop having same-sex activities. It is the orientation that must be dealt with: "To 'stop being a homosexual' means to stop being a person with same-sex psychological deficits".

If the final goal is "the attainment of a complete same-sex identity" then healing will involve dealing with the source of the problem: "Healing for the homosexual is not just a matter of meeting unmet needs, but of dealing with the barrier that blocked their fulfilment in the ordinary course of growth and can continue to prevent such fulfilment."

This process can take time, "quite possibly a matter of some years". This is because "homosexuality is the kind of problem that needs to be solved through relationships," and the restoration of relationships does not occur overnight.

For those who are willing to change, real and substantial change is possible: "Love, both in prayer and in relationships, is the basic therapy. A defensive detachment from the same-sex love-source, and consequent unmet needs for love, constitute the homosexual condition. Love is the basic problem, the great need, and the only true solution. If we are willing to seek and to mediate the healing and redeeming love of Christ, then healing for the homosexual will become a great and glorious reality." Bring depth understanding of reparative therapy

How Homosexuality are Symbolic Confusion

A loving, committed relationship is NOT a "symbolic confusion". Mrs. Barnhouse has written a book in which she encourages homophobia and more loveless marriages that gays who for some reason go against their nature to please people like Barnhouse. Its such a shame, how can an intelligent woman be at the same time, really, really stupid and ignorant. I(...), I did not chose to love men, I discovered it. Im glad this stupid book, which sounds like it was written by a dodo bird is out of print. (...).

Reparative therapy has been outlawed in Ecuador and denounced by the American Psychiatric Association. It consists of tormenting brainwashed homosexuals until they reach some unrealistic point where they think they are beginning to please an unpleasable God. The late Warren Johansson rightly denounced this sort of thing as spiritual murder. Barnhouse's theory of the cause of homosexuality is complete nonsense.
