The Justice for Priests new publication to help accused priests is an excellent resource.

Evaluation of Conflicts in Self-Giving

SSA in Youth

Dear Father,
 
I want to bring to your attention an important recent article on the right to treatment of youth who have unwanted same sex attractions.  Many states have and are attempting to deny youth the right to informed consent about the serious medical and psychological health risks associated with the homosexual lifestyle and treatment.
 
This article from the American College of Pediatricians demonstrates that homosexuality is not innate; that same sex attractions (SSA) during adolescence are more fluid than fixed and that there is no scientific proof that psychotherapy to uncover and resolve the emotional conflicts that cause SSA is harmful.  
 
I hope this article is helpful to your vital ministry to youth.
 
 
Sincerely in Christ,
 
 
Rick Fitzgibbons, M.D.
