  1. A few months ago I talking with a psychologist I know. I asked if the Christian urban legend that "homophobia" was in the DSM (the APA manual on psychological diagnoses) was true. It was not. I even looked over the manual, myself. Then I read about a therapeutic framework that a Christian psychology professor was using to treat Christian homosexual men who wanted to shunt their same-sex attraction. This was not reparative therapy, but rather a putting aside of physical drives to achieve a greater spiritual purpose. The APA approved his framework. So, I concluded that there is hope in that field. People of faith can serve and be served but the elements of good in psychology. We just have to choose our therapists with discernment. Below is a link to an article based on a study. It's just a study, and most of these probably amount to nothing. On the other hand, it sure does play into that Christian urban legend I mentioned earlier. A researcher has determined a correlation between negative feelings towards homosexuals and psychologically troubling traits. Should we be concerned?
