Study: Effort to change sexual orientation, aka “conversion therapy”, reduces suicidal behavior

Legislation is underway to ban so-called ‘conversion therapy’ in the UK. A study by Fr. Paul Sullins, Ph.D., a senior research associate at the Ruth Institute, shows that sexual orientation change exertion therapy (SOCE) does no harm, unlike what is widely affirmed. SOCE is consistently misnamed “conversion therapy” by its opponents.

Prof. Sullins explained: “The newspaper Frontiers in Psychology published my latest study, which compares LGB people who underwent SOCE to those who did not and found no difference between the two groups on multiple measures of behavioral harm, including suicidal morbidity, distress psychological, self-harm and substance abuse.

“The conclusion of my study contradicts a large number of studies that report substantial harm from SOCE, particularly an increase in suicidal behavior. But only four of these studies used a representative (or random) sample, and all four failed to distinguish suicidal behavior before SOCE from that after it.

“I found that suicidal behaviors are much higher before SOCE (perhaps prompting to seek therapy) but not after. In fact, suicide attempts are significantly reduced after SOCE. This is the opposite of what is widely claimed.

“For at least two of the four representative sample studies, the disregard for pre-existing distress is not unintentional, but intentional, by researchers who argue that even prior distress invalidates SOCE. countdown can cause the very harm these scholars and advocates say they want to prevent.”

“It would indeed be a perverse policy, for example, for heart surgery to be discouraged or even banned because those who undergo it experienced higher rates of heart dysfunction than the general population prior to surgery.”

Sullins concluded, “Concerns about restricting or banning SOCE due to high damage are unfounded.”

“Furthermore,” added Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, president of the Ruth Institute, “such a law would limit the freedom of patients to obtain the therapy they deem best suited to their needs.”

“The ‘scientific consensus’ on SOCE is that talk therapy that attempts to reorganize patterns of sexual desire is inherently harmful and should be banned to protect the public. Prof. Sullins’ study is an important corrective to this narrative. In fact, his work strongly suggests that some of the papers published by other researchers can be safely dismissed as “junk science.”

“This is how the Sexual Revolutionaries have consistently operated: commissioning advocacy research to make a point, disseminating that work widely, marginalizing any researcher who provides evidence to the contrary, and then declaring that there is a ‘scientific consensus We’re not going to let this final episode go unchallenged,” Morse said.

Other notable findings from Fr. Sullins’ study include:

SOCE participants experienced higher minority stress, negative childhood conditions, and lower socioeconomic status, all of which predict greater harm or lower well-being; yet, after SOCE, their level of harm was no higher than that of their peers who had not experienced these conditions. Thus, undergoing SOCE may very well mitigate or protect against damage from other causes.

Previous studies have reported a decrease in suicidality after SOCE for those who also reported reduced same-sex attraction or behavior, i.e. they “converted” at least somewhat, but higher suicidal tendency for those who did not haven’t done it. This is the first study to find no harm to people who experienced SOCE but remained heavily LGB in terms of identity, behavior and attraction.

Deceptive Drag Queen gets a job at the Department of Energy

“It’s quite a valentine the Biden administration is sending to America,” Ruth Institute president Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., said of Sam Brinton’s appointment as undersecretary. deputy for spent fuel and waste disposal in the office of the Ministry of Energy. for nuclear energy.

Brinton, an LGBTQ activist passionate about “sex role-playing” and an outspoken opponent of so-called “conversion therapy,” has already proven to be very misleading.

Brinton has testified worldwide that he was tortured during “conversion therapy”, but his stories show many inconsistencies.

Susan Constantine, body language expert and founder of the Human Behavior Lab, regularly testifies at trials about whether a witness is showing signs of deception based on language patterns and other body language cues. At the Ruth Institute’s 2021 Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution, Constantine explained how she and her team analyzed Brinton’s speeches using a three-pronged test: statement analysis, vocal stress analysis, and behavioral analysis. They concluded that Brinton showed many signs of being “very deceptive”.

This analysis casts serious doubt on his history of torture with needles, shock therapy, ice packs and heated coils. Yet her testimony was used as the basis for banning talk therapy for sexual orientation change efforts, which is the correct name for what LGBTQ activists call “conversion therapy.”

In his behavioral analysis, (from around 6 minutes), Constantine notes Brinton’s “delight in tricking”, which is when a person takes pleasure in successfully deceiving someone.

Morse said: “In my view, Mr. Brinton should not be burdened with questions relating to the disposal of nuclear waste or any other serious matter.”

Brinton is also a member of the intentionally offensive Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, going by the name “Sister Ray Dee O’Active”. He also indulges in “puppy play”, in which he is the “handler” of grown men disguised as dogs.

“Sam Brinton is a Named Individual who is involved in bizarre sexual roleplaying with men who pretend to be animals and who, as an advocate for a controversial cause, has most likely engaged in numerous acts of deception “, said Morse. “Can you imagine what it would be like for the staff forced to work for him? The Biden administration is literally going to the dogs.

“I suggest that President Biden reconsider this extremely inappropriate addition to his administration.”

“Black Lives Matter doesn’t care about black people”

The Ruth Institute’s Annual Sexual Revolution Survivor Awards Dinner and Summit featured Reverend Walter and Lori Hoye. Find out why Walter, an African-American pastor, was arrested for sidewalk tips in Oakland, California. He wasn’t breaking the law, until clinic officials pressured the city to pass a new law to throw Reverend Hoye in jail. Thanks to a corrupt judicial system, they succeeded.

Listen to Lori explain why Black Lives Matter is not an organization that cares about black people. “They care about the 19 black men who were killed by white officers, so they can sue the city and line their pockets,” Lori says, and more.

Hear Reverend Hoye explain the #1 reason why black pastors won’t speak out against abortion from the pulpit. And if you’re interested in post-abortion counseling, you’ll find out how to do it effectively from the Hoyes’ personal experience.

Plus, if you’re a basketball fan, you’ll want to know why the Hoyes are friends with so many NBA members!

The Deterioration of the Black Family

As part of our ongoing celebration of Black History Month, the latest Dr. J Show features Reverend Arnold Culbreath, founder of Protecting Black Life and a member of the Douglass Leadership Institute, whose primary missions are to: strengthen the family black, supporting criminal justice reform and securing educational and economic opportunities for African Americans.

Check out the “Truth Booths” he hosts at health fairs to alert people to the reality of Planned Parenthood’s ongoing “Negro Project” – Margaret Sanger’s eugenics policy to exterminate black people. Nearly 80% of abortion clinics are in minority communities, reports Culbreath. “We are working hard at the Douglass Leadership Institute to reverse the curse of Margaret Sanger.”

Watch to learn more about PP’s insidious tactics against the black family, as well as Reverend Culbreath’s advice to the white community on how best to help African Americans.
