Is homosexuality genetic or a choice? Can homosexual attractions be “changed”/”healed”?
I found an interesting exerpt from a book published by Ignatius Press on this subject. The exerpt is a bit long but certainly worth reading, considering the media’s big push to normalize & misinform the public regarding homosexuality. The book was written by a priest who apparently works as a counsellor (Fr. John Harvey) & has dealt with many people who struggle with same-sex attraction. Here’s a short piece from the exerpt:
“The most common conflicts at different life stages that predispose individuals to homosexual attractions and behavior are loneliness and sadness, mistrust and fear, profound feelings of inadequacy and a lack of self-acceptance, narcissism, excessive anger, sexual abuse in childhood and a lack of balance in one’s life coupled with overwhelming feelings of responsibility. During times of stress these inner difficulties are activated. In an attempt to seek relief or to escape from this unconscious emotional pain, strong sexual temptations and behavior can occur.”
