The Day of Truth was established to “counter the promotion of thehomosexual agenda and express an opposing viewpoint from a Christianperspective,” says the Alliance Defence Fund’s website.

The second annual Truth day was sponsored by the Alliance Defence Fund, anorganization that defends religious freedom in the U.S., in response toyesterday’s Day of Silence. Sponsored by the Gay, Lesbian, Straight EducationNetwork, the Day of Silence is a no-talk day observed by students in protest ofopposition to homosexuality.
What could be done to balance out the numbers?
More recently, a study of 882 dissatisfied homosexuals (726 of whom had received reparative therapy) found that 45.4% made major changes in their orientation, while 35.1% did not (Nicolosi, Byrd, & Potts, June, 2000). Interestingly, 26% of the therapists surveyed in a related study were ex-gays themselves (Nicolosi, Byrd, & Potts, April, 2000).
What do you think is the role of a teacher?
The results for orientation reparative therapy are quite impressive. The average success rate for reparative therapies prior to 1973 was 53% (Satinover, 1996).
Do the advantages outweigh the disadvantages of this trend?
As early as 1978, Bell & Weinberg (whom Reis also quotes) found that 84% of homosexuals and 29% of heterosexuals shifted their sexual orientation at least once in their life, and 32% of homosexuals and 4% of heterosexuals reported a second shift in orientation. A significant 13% of homosexuals claimed at least five orientation changes in their lifetime (Bell & Weinberg, 1978).
