Father John Harvey, Who Devoted His Life To Turning Gay Catholic Teens Straight, Died

Father John Harvey, who founded the organization Courage to “support” gay Catholics and “help” manage their same-sex attraction (usually with chastity), and who believed high school and college students hooked up with the same sex because it was “cool,” died Dec. 27 at a hospital in Maryland. He was 92. The author of The Truth about Homosexuality, Harvey believed gay teens could grow out of their homosexuality, but only through the help of “reliable Catholic doctors.”
