Christian college prof encourages 'gay identity'Jim Brown - OneNewsNow - 3/10/2010 6:00:00 AM
A conservative activist is asking a Christian college in Pennsylvania whether it supports the "sexual identity therapy" of one of its professors who is unwilling to discourage some of his clients from remaining in the homosexual lifestyle.
Dr. Warren Throckmorton of Grove City College was once a spokesperson for the ex-"gay" group PFOX (Parents and Friends of Gays and Ex-Gays) and produced a documentary titled I Do Exist, which highlighted the testimonies of former homosexuals who chose to leave that lifestyle.
But now Throckmorton is encouraging some clients to maintain their "gay identity," even though it is at odds with scripture. In a paper he co-authored with Regent University's Mark Yarhouse titled Sexual Identity Therapy: Practice Guidelines for Sexual Identity Conflicts, Throckmorton writes that "the emergence of a gay identity for persons struggling with religious conflicts is a possibility envisioned by the recommendations."
The professor also states his therapy "respects" that "some religious individuals will determine that their religious beliefs may become modified to allow integration of same-sex eroticism within their valued identity."
