American Psychological Association controlled by gay rights movement June 6, 2012

This is getting big coverage elsewhere, but since the American Psychological Association(APA) are, for some completely baffling reason, taken seriously and have great influence, I thought I’d note, too, the fact that a former head of the APA complains that the organization is dominated by ultraliberals and controlled by the radical gay lobby:

A former president of the American Psychological Association (APA), who also introduced the motion to declassify homosexuality as a mental illness in 1975, [I think this statement was included to establish that he is not a “homophobe”] says that the APA has been taken over by “ultraliberals” beholden to the “gay rights movement,” who refuse to allow an open debate on reparative therapy for homosexuality.

Dr. Nicholas Cummings was President of the APA from 1979 to 1980, and also served as a member of the organization’s Council of Representatives. He served for years as Chief of Mental Health with the Kaiser-Permanente Health Maintenance Organization, and is the author of the book “Destructive Trends in Mental Health: The Well-Intentioned Path to Harm.”…..

…..The APA “started changing pretty drastically by the late 1980s,” said Cummings.  “By the mid 1990s, the Leona Tyler principle was absolutely forgotten, that political stances seemed to override any scientific results. Cherry-picking results became the mode. The gay rights movement sort of captured the APA.”

Cummings says that the movement for “diversity” in the APA, which he endorsed, had resulted in a lack of diversity regarding heterosexuals.

“If I had to choose now, I would see a need to form an organization that would recruit straight white males, which are underrepresented today in the APA,” he said.

Cummings says that he personally is not in opposition to the homosexual movement, including gay “marriage,” pointing out that he was the author of the motion to strike homosexuality from the APA’s list of mental illnesses. [First, do no harm……..]  However, he is distressed at the loss of scientific objectivity at the organization

Such a loss was more or less guaranteed, when the psychiatrists and, later, the psychologists, determined, arbitrarily (without supporting data) that homosexuality was perfectly normal behavior that was fundamentally rooted in the psyche.  Of course, addiction is, too, but addicts haven’t formed a powerful, well-funded lobby to coerce organizations into trying to normalize us. Yet.  But we will, soon……..and then you’ll have to pay for my heroin and I can marry a bathtub full of Vicodin!  Ha ha ha haa ha haa haaaa!

Gee, all they need to read is Sr. Farley’s book for all the emperical evidence on why homosexuality is fine, normal, no problem.
