Lord Carey, The Former Bishop Of Canturbury, Defends British Therapist’s “Gay Cure”…

A group of church officials, including George Leonard Carey—the former Archbishop of Canterbury—have come out in defense of English psychotherapist Lesley Pilkington, who was suspended by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) after offering ‘reparative therapy’ to an undercover journalist.

According to Pink News, Lord Carey—along with Rev. Michael Nazir-Ali, the former Bishop of Rochester, and Rev. Wallace Benn, the current the Bishop of Lewes, have written the BACP, saying:

“We believe that people who seek, freely, to resolve unwanted same-sex attractions hold the moral right to receive professional assistance. Whether motivated by Christian conscience or other values, clients, not practitioners, have the prerogative to choose the yardstick by which to define themselves.”

I wonder what these bigots are jerking off to at night?? I can tell you it ain’t nuns in habits…Can you say alter boys anybody?

    Well, certainly anyone with “unwanted same-sex attractions” has the right to seek out whatever help they can get. The only problem with the man’s reasoning relating to “those with unwanted same-sex attraction” is that no gay men seem to want any such counseling or services. The only ones who want the services available are heteros who want to rid the world of gays — and we’re not going anywhere. Thus, they are essentially offering a service that no who could “benefit” from it wants — and the only people who want it have no need of it. Oh well, their pushing something no one wants. TOo bad.
