NARTH Founder: I Can't Cure Gays

"Alan, what you are saying is untrue. I have never said I could cure someone completely from homosexuality. All my books make it quite clear that homosexual attractions will persist to some degree throughout a person’s lifetime. Furthermore, I do not use heterosexual pornography with my clients. I do ask them (if they wish to do this; some clients do not, and I never expect my clients to do anything they do not wish to do) to bring up a compelling image from gay porn that they wish to reduce the power of, and we work on diminishing its power (a technique with which we have had considerable success).

"However, I do not use straight porn; I use pictures of women they find attractive in mainstream magazines and we work on developing a physical attraction to them, through their imagination, while looking at these non-pornographic pictures. I would like you to set the record straight on this. You have been publicly denigrating reparative therapy and misleading people about its nature." - NARTH co-founder Joseph Nicolosi, responding to a Facebook post by Exodus International head Alan Chambers.
