NI Health Chief: Homosexuality is a Mental Illness

Homosexuality is a mental illness, according to the head of Northern Ireland’s health committee, Iris Robinson MP. Can we say ‘forced resignation’?

After apparently branding homosexuality as “disgusting, loathsome, nauseating, wicked and vile” she went on to recommend […] “a very lovely psychiatrist who works with me in my offices and his Christian background is that he tries to help homosexuals”.

So what is this research Miller [the ‘lovely psychiatrist’] talks about? A randomised controlled trial from the peer-review medical literature? A meta-analysis of past treatment programmes? Perhaps just an exploratory outcome study?

No, it’s a book released by a Christian publisher and written by a psychologist and psychiatrist employed by a private evangelical college in the States.

An extremely depressing read, worth your time to find how much deeper Mrs. Robinson digs her hole. Especially when she likens homosexuals to murderers. You’ll be pleased to know she’s now being investigated for hate crimes.
