A small group of anti-gay activists calling themselves the American COLLEGE of Pediatrics have deliberately misrepresented scientific research on GLBT youth. That is their sole purpose: attacking GLBT youth. They are telling lies about what the research actually says. Several scientists misquoted are challenging them, including Dr Francis Collins, direcor of the National Institutes of Health.
"It is disturbing for me to see special interest groups distort my scientific observations to make a point against homosexuality. The American College of Pediatricians pulled language out of context from a book I wrote in 2006 to support an ideology that can cause unnecessary anguish and encourage prejudice. The information they present is misleading and incorrect, and it is particularly troubling that they are distributing it in a way that will confuse school children and their parents."Don't be misled. These people of the ACP are lying homophobes, counting on the confusion of their name to lend them undeserved credence.
The American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Counseling Association, the American Psychiatric Association, the American Psychological Association, the National Association of School Psychologists, and the National Association of Social Workers, together representing more than 477,000 health and mental health professionals, have all taken the position that homosexuality is not a mental disorder and thus there is no need for a "cure."
