Many individuals who change their same-sex attractions do so out of moral convictions.
Many individuals who are unhappy with their same-sex attractions, and work at diminishing the attractions and eliminating homosexual behaviors, do so out of moral convictions. The source of their unhappiness is often a legitimate, intelligent religious and moral choice to not live their lives as a gay person.
We live in a time of rapid social change. Only a few years ago, same-sex marriages, a gay pride day in elementary schools, and the deliberate decision to raise children in single-parent families would have been unthinkable. Your children and grandchildren face the very real possibility of living in a world where few of the ideals that have shaped your life will even be tolerated. Scientific research and social trends demonstrate that when we abandon high standards of moral character and the natural family, we reap a bitter harvest. Nowhere is this more true than in the matter of homosexual behavior.
We need to unite scientific, clinical, moral, and community leaders to insure that assistance is available to those with unwanted same-sex attraction and other gender identity disorders. We must be willing to suffer public ridicule when we proclaim that the time honored two-parent family is a design of eternal importance that we cannot forsake. And to accomplish these goals, individuals of integrity must be willing to sacrifice their time, talent, and financial resources to sustain these worthy goals.
