Gay rights activists consider counselors such as Marcus Bachmann anti-gay for treating patients with reparative therapy when they ask for it. Yet gay rights activists support schools imposing a “remediation program” on students against their will.
Julea Ward, a grad student at Eastern Michigan University, was brought before school officials after requesting that a patient with same-sex attraction see a different counselor. “I had never refused to counsel homosexuals; I had simply refused to affirm their lifestyle,” Ward clarified.
She said EMU officials gave her three options: withdraw from school, take her case to a formal review hearing, or “take part in a remediation program which would basically show me the error of my ways.”
Apparently this is how gay rights activists use doublethink: talking in a remediation program can change the way people think and act. But talking in reparative therapy is silly and counter-productive because people with same-sex attraction are incapable of change.
Let’s fight fire with fire. Gay rights activists like to redefine words. They decided that marriage which meant the union of a male and a female now means two men or two women or one man and one woman. Simple. Just redefine remediation to mean remediation training or reparative therapy. That way students like Ward can receive instruction in how to help patients who want to stop being attracted to their own gender. And university officials will be happy that she’s in a remediation program.
Talk about a win/win!
