Scott Lively: Homosexuality should still be classified as mental illness
Here in a week when Uganda's president signed into a law one of the most shockingly anti-LGBT laws in recent memory, the American who helped craft that state of affairs in Uganda, Scott Lively, is now coming out against the American psychological community for classifying LGBT people as being something other than mentally ill:
"In 1973, after an intensive campaign of pressure and harassment by LGBT activists, the board of the American Psychological Association voted to remove homosexuality as a mental illness from their Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM), the “bible” of mental health professionals. It was as if they opened Pandora’s Box and unleashed an invisible plague that attacks the reasoning centers in the brain. Now forty years later the evidence is overwhelming that the DSM should never have been modified. The only problem is that most of the people with the power to change it back are now homosexualists themselves, infected with the same disorder. God help us."
—Scott Lively, writing on his eponymous website
Ah yes, the dulcet tones of a fanatical voice accusing a minority group of unleashing an "invisible plague" on the larger population. That's always played out well in the past.
