The idea that a gay person can be "cured" of his or her homosexuality is not a new one. For centuries doctors, therapists and religious figures have tried a wide variety of techniques -- from pray to surgery to exorcism -- to "convert" men and women......

This was too bizzare not to post. As the original host of Family Feud, used to say about the crazy families, 'where do they get these people?'

Equine assisted therapy has been helpful for many people in many ways but this is just a travesty.

What a load of bull. Something must be seriously wrong with this man to say such a ridiculous thing and to equate sexual orientation with something curable like a disease or disorder. Crazy.

Thanks Barb. Homosexuality is NOT a disease or condition that needs to be "cured". The same goes for IGNORANCE, however it can be addressed..at least up to a point. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

how creepy to involve horses in this type of sickening 'curing'. There is nothing wrong with gays or horses for that matter, but as for the church...well, nothing could cure that kind of silliness.

if stroking horse makes homosexual men, attract to ladies. then would strokeing gay men cure people who are attracted to horses?
