Never mind the fact that numerous studies over the past two decades or so have shown that biased findings like this are just not accurate. But sure, let's pray the gay away. You can call it counseling all you want, but when the number one advocate for gay straight conversion(Exodus International) comes out and says "oops looks like it does more harm than good", it's probably time to face facts.

Isn't this the group that is trying to take the place of Exodus, now that that group is finally admitting that none of the thousands of people who went through it's programs changed orientation?

I bet that extreme religious counseling can turn people off of sex and even dampen attractions alltogether.

But, so far, there has not been a SINGLE study that has shown that a single person has ever completely changed from one orientation to another.

And it would be sooooo easy to prove, if it ever happened. The technology to test orientation is hardly difficult to come by.
