From the Back Cover
Psychiatrist Jeffrey Satinover examines recent research reported in medical journals (and the popular press). He finds many of these studies flawed and cites evidence that homosexuality is indeed changeable. He explains how psychology, biology, choice, and habit all interweave to produce deeply imbedded patterns of sexual behavior. The model Dr. Satinover develops is based on modern science and psychological understandings of habit, compulsion, and addiction. Homosexuality, he writes, "is one of the many forms of soul sickness that is innate to our fallen nature".

Marxism isn't the only source of truth-replacement, of course. Another is Creationism, which seeks to replace a great deal of physics, astrophysics, biology, and cosmology with a literal interpretation of the Bible. But what the Creationists have been able to do to subvert the curricula of public schools is tiny in relation to the much broader success of corruption sown by the Marxists.
Detailing the many ways in which academia can no longer be trusted to convey truth to the layman is beyond the scope of this review. Here, it is sufficient to say that Jeffrey Satinover has done the world a service by exposing the way that homosexuals, organized for the purpose, subverted the profession of psychiatry.
In 1973 the American Psychiatric Association (APA) struck homosexuality off the list of recognized mental disorders, thereby overturning decades of medical scientific research on the subject. What new data prompted this change of classification for homosexuality? None.
Instead, the change resulted after homosexuals infiltrated the profession's major institution within the United States: the American Psychiatric Association. Having acquired degrees and licenses for themselves, the homosexuals began sabotaging conferences and sometimes threatening other professionals, who weren't prepared to cope with the subverters' Marxist tactics. The mental doctors, not well-equipped to resist this assault, caved in to political pressure, and as the direct result the APA changed its official position on the classification of homosexuality.
In other words, the change had nothing to do with science. It wasn't the result of scientific research bringing forth new and persuasive evidence. It was, rather, purely motivated by politics. Which means that, scientifically, homosexuality remains a mental disorder, and what the APA says about it now is unreliable.
I wish there was a follow up to some of the current research which presents both sides without choosing to prove their own opinion.
