CMA Psychiatrist Dreads Homosexual’s Possible APA Presidency. From AgapePress of course.

A psychiatrist and spokesman for the Christian Medical Association is expressing his concern that a man currently running for the presidency of the American Psychiatric Association (APA) is likely to put the organization “deeper into the pocket of homosexual activists.”

Members of organizations and groups that strive to support and assist men and women who want freedom from unwanted homosexuality have expressed concern over Jack Drescher’s candidacy for the leadership of the APA. Drescher is openly homosexual and the current head of the APA’s Committee on Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Issues.

Psychiatrist Dr. Karl Benzio says he is not a member of the APA because he disagrees with the organization’s positions on a number of issues that are important to him and to his Christian faith. He has become increasingly disenchanted with the APA’s stances; and it is likely, he contends, that the group will further alienate many of the people in his profession if Drescher is elected.

…A Drescher presidency would allow other agendas an easier course to get, at least, heard if not passed through the APA, Benzio asserts. Meanwhile, he adds, Drescher would surely be supplied with a bigger soapbox to spread his own pro-homosexual ideas.
