Change is Not Only Possible but Actually Happens

Miracles do happen and change is possible.  It is cruel to deny a person the help needed to change an unwanted sexual attraction and causes that person to live an unbearable life feeling God and everybody hate that individual, resulting in rejection and severe depression that sometimes leads to suicide.


Without help and a continued practice of homosexuality it can lead to serious disease problm,s some of which can result in early death.  There are over 50 disease related problems connected with homosexual practices a few which are even fatal.


Since conversion thereapy can be effective it should not be denied to those who request it.
