Letter to the Editor: Let's avoid falsehoods


This is in response to Gene Rigelon's letter of Nov 19. It seems you always want to tell us how moral humanists are, and I don't doubt for a second that many are. You also bloviate quite a bit about science, which brings me to my problem with your last letter. You said, "No reputable scientist today supports the idea that anyone chooses his or her sexual orientation."

I'm sure that would come as a huge surprise to Dr. Stanton L. Jones, a psychologist at Wheaton College in Illinois, and Dr. Mark A. Yarhouse, a psychologist at Regent University. They published their study in October 2011 in the "Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy" that demonstrates clearly that folks engaged in the homosexual lifestyle can indeed change their sexual orientation. The study is called "Ex-Gay? A Longitudinal Study of Religiously Mediated Change in Sexual Orientation."

This is the first longitudinal, peer-reviewed scientific study of its kind.

In your rush to support your politically correct cause, please be more careful not to tell falsehoods. Hopefully it was an oversight.

G.A. Settle, Front Royal
