    'Missing' Man Sought by Gay Pal Is Willingly Undergoing Counseling, Family Says

    'Missing' Man Sought by Gay Pal Is Willingly Undergoing Counseling, Family Says - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News - FOXNews.com

    EXCLUSIVE: A 23-year-old pre-med student who "got caught up with friends who were pulling him" toward homosexuality is well and undergoing Christian counseling, his family says.

    But a gay activist who created a Web site to locate the "missing" man says Bryce Faulkner's silence speaks volumes, claiming that the young man's religious parents are controlling his every move in an effort to "cure" him of his homosexuality.

    Debra Faulkner, of El Dorado, Ark., denied the Web site's reports that her son was forced against his will to undergo reparative therapy for homosexuality at Exodus International, a nonprofit Christian organization that seeks "freedom from homosexuality" through Jesus Christ.
    My opinion is that the guy is 23 years old, so if he wants to undergo therapy to 'cure' himself of homosexuality, go right ahead. I don't agree with the activist's opinion, that the family is forcing him to go (and if they are, he has the option to simply say "no"). However, I think it's ridiculous that organizations like Exodus International are free to operate with that agenda. Turnabout is fair play - if some backwards group can operate freely in the US with the goal of 'curing' someone of homosexuality, I see no problem with educating children about homosexuality and acceptance in a public school system.

    Gay people for years have used a false scientific study that claimed homosexuality was something your are born with in your genes. That has been proven false a long time ago and they fear when anyone undergoes treatment because it threatens their their paradigms and hurt recruitment.

    I wish My younger brother had received effective counseling. He might be alive today.
    Am I anti gay? I was brought up to hate the sin not the sinner. Yes I hate the sin.

    And in other news:

    When the family is done with the counseling, they are taking their son to the local optometry center to buy him green contact lens so that he can change his eye color as well.

    When was that exactly? They never located a so-called "gay gene" but they have never proved that homosexuality isn't something people are born with.

Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    A long time ago, didn't you read that?

    In the end, this anti-gay stuff is stupid. I would find it hard to believe that he went to the "counseling" by his own accord. If so, that's his choice, but it does sound like something perpetuated by homophobic parents.

    That's about 180 degrees from reality. The truth is gay people were for years diagnosed with an 'illness' based on absolutely no scientific studies whatsoever. The original classification of homosexuality as a disorder in the DSM was based on whim... nothing more. No studies. No research. Nothing.


    I wish My younger brother had received effective counseling. He might be alive today.

    Well at least you've exposed the truth here. A 'sin' is much different from a disease.

    Which is it? Sin? Or illness?

    Adultery is not an illness. Worshiping false gods is not an illness. Working on the Sabbath is not an illness. Envy, pride and greed are not illnesses. Those are sins.

    Homosexuality: sin or illness? How do you 'undergo treatment' to cure sin?

    Same with me and bigots. Hate the sin, attempt not tohate the sinner.

    And "hurt recruitment"? You honestly think gay people go recruiting? I that's how you think sexuality works, please feel free to share the tale of how you were "recruited" to heterosexuality. Alternatively, you could explain how I knew I was attracted to women before I even knew what being gay meant.

    I don't care about "recruitment", I care about desperate people reaching out for therapy that has been proven not to work, and has additionally been proven to cause mental health difficulties and suicidal ideations in those who undergo it. It's ridiculous. The health and well-being of your felow man should come before dated, small minded ideology.
