Reparative Therapy ~ Good Or Bad?

You learn something new every day.  I watched Dr. Oz and he had a show on Reparative Therapy.  The homosexual society was extremely upset that he was even going to air this show.  I watched it because I was very interested in finding out what they were so upset about.
At the beginning, Dr. Oz told us this show was very controversial.  It was going to have two men who were homosexual but became heterosexual.  Then it was going to have men who say they were harmed by Reparative Therapy.
The two men who were changed were very well spoken and said nothing negative about homosexuality.  In fact, one of them was a psychotherapist and he said that he wished homosexual people nothing but good.  If they wanted to get married and have children, that was great with him.
He grew up being attracted to men but wanted to be attracted to women.  He wanted to grow up and get married and have children with a woman.  He found Reparative Therapy and changed to become heterosexual eight years ago.  Dr. Oz asked him if he was ever attracted to men the past eight years.  He said, "No." He is happily married and has two children.  He now helps many other homosexual men who want to become heterosexual and has had great success.
The other man had a similar story and was very happy to be heterosexual.   The other two homosexual men who went through Reparative Therapy said it made them want to commit suicide and didn't work for them.  A female doctor said that suicide, unfortunately, is very high in the homosexual community anyways.
She was pounced on for making this comment.  The homosexuals said suicide is so high because homosexuals live with so much guilt.  They need to accept themselves for who they are and realize homosexuality is a good thing.   They were cruel to her and definitely wanted to shut her up.
Governor Brown of California has made Reparative Therapy illegal.  He thinks it causes too much harm to homosexuals, especially children who are struggling with it.  They believe children should only be encouraged in their homosexuality, never discouraged by their parents.  They would like to take away the right of parents to ever say that homosexuality is not a good thing.
Wow!  Homosexuals who don't want to be homosexual aren't allowed to have those feelings of wanting to become heterosexual.  They must accept who they are and live their lives as homosexual even if they would love to become heterosexual and marry a person of the opposite sex.
What a sad day for our society.  This is all I can say about this subject.  I will let the Bible say the rest.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into
an image made like to corruptible man...
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness
through the lusts of their own hearts,
to dishonor their own bodies between themselves: 
Who changed the truth of God into a lie.
Romans 1:22,24,25
