Truth Wins Out picked up on Voices of Change, a new website launched by the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH) and People Can Change (PCC). On it, NARTH co-founder Dr. Joseph Nicolosi reveals half of the people he swindles with his quack “cure” are minors.
“We are getting more an more teenagers coming to our clinic,” said NARTH’s Dr. Joseph Nicolosi. “Years ago when I did this work, the average age of our clients was late 20?s and early 30?s…Today, I would say that 50-percent of the clients at our clinic, and we have 135 ongoing cases a week. We have seven therapists that only deal with homosexuality. Fifty percent are teenagers.”
In the video, Nicolosi has some interesting advice for impressionable teens who may be confused about their sexuality:
“I would say to a teenager, do not label yourself. I don’t care if you have these feelings, attractions or act out, don’t label yourself gay because that seals your identity, shuts off your options. Be open, experience, think, feel, reflect, learn. And you will see that your heterosexual potential is underneath.”
Right, so don’t label yourself… unless that label is “heterosexual.”
Be who you are.
You are fine just the way you are.
