How America Went Gay

February 8, 2014

220px-Charles_Socarides.jpgCharles W. Socarides, M.D., (1922-2005) was clinical professor of psychiatry at Albert Einstein College of Medicine  
in New York.

Western media and corporations have seized upon
the Sochi Olympics to bash Russia for protecting
heterosexual rights. In this light, I re-post
a classic 1995 essay by a psychiatrist
who treated hundreds of gays over his 40-year-career
and cured about a third. 



Until 1975, homosexuality was recognized for what it is, a developmental disorder. The massive 
crusade to mainstream homosexuality is characteristic of Satanism, which pretends that sick is healthy and unnatural is natural. It is irrefutable proof society is satanically possessed.   Mankind has been colonized by a satanic cult, Freemasonry (Illuminati) which is a proxy for the Cabalist Jewish central banking cartel. 





Google Homos (1).pngUnder the ruse of "gay rights," the Illuminati elite wages a nasty, disingenuous attack designed to undermine  
heterosexual institutions and values. For example, in spite of media propaganda, Russia does not criminalize homosexuality; it prohibits gay propaganda aimed at children. Typically, the attackers pretend to be the injured party, when in fact, the "hatred" starts with them. 

We have compassion and love for individual gays. We oppose the Illuminati plan to subvert society by spreading this disorder until it becomes the social norm. 



Part One: "How America Went Gay" 


by Charles Socarides M.D.
(Edited & Abridged by henrymakow.com)

For more than 20 years, I and a few psychiatrists have felt like an embattled minority, because we have continued to insist that gays aren't born that way.

For most of this (20th) century, we have considered this behavior aberrant...a pathology. We had patients who would seek out one sex partner after another-total strangers-on a single night, then come limping into our offices the next day to tell us how they were hurting themselves. Since we were in the business of helping people learn how not to keep hurting themselves, many of us thought we were quietly doing God's work.

Now, in the opinion of those who make up the so-called cultural elite, our view is "out of date." The elite say we hurt people more than we help them, and that we belong in one of the century's dustbins. They have managed to sell this idea to a great many Americans, thereby making homosexuality fashionable and raising formerly aberrant behavior to the status of an "alternate lifestyle."...

HOMOSEXUAL REVOLUTION ORCHESTRATED

How did this change come about? Well, the revolution did not just happen...

altman.jpgIt was all part of a plan, as one gay publication put it, "to make the whole world gay." I am not making this up. You can read an account of the campaign in Dennis Altman's The Homosexualization of America. In 1982 Altman, himself gay, reported with an air of elation that more and more Americans were thinking like gays and acting like gays. There were engaged, that is, "in numbers of short-lived sexual adventures either in place of or alongside long-term relationships." Altman cited the heterosexual equivalents of gay saunas and the emergence of the swinging singles scene as proofs that "promiscuity and 'impersonal sex' are determined more by social possibilities than by inherent differences between homosexuals and heterosexuals, or even between men and women."

Heady stuff. Gays said they could "reinvent human nature, reinvent themselves." To do this, these re-inventors had to clear away one major obstacle. No, they didn't go after the nation's clergy. They targeted the members of a worldly priesthood, the psychiatric community, and neutralized them with a radical redefinition of homosexuality itself. In 1972 and 1973 they co-opted the leadership of the American Psychiatric Association and, through a series of political maneuvers, lies and outright flim-flams, they "cured" homosexuality overnight-by fiat. They got the A.P.A. to say that same-sex sex was "not a disorder." It was merely "a condition"-as neutral as lefthandedness.

HATRED, INTIMIDATION & INTOLERANCE

This amounted to a full approval of homosexuality. Those of us who did not go along with the political redefinition were soon silenced at our own professional meetings. Our lectures were canceled inside academe and our research papers turned down in the learned journals. Worse things followed in the culture at large. Television and movie producers began to do stories promoting homosexuality as a legitimate lifestyle.

gaypride.jpg["For some years now, gays have been disrupting our meetings, shouting down people trying to deliver their scientific papers, threatening individual doctors like myself...The gay activists have a ferocious irrationality. They turn every scientific agreement into a political issue -- which is all they can really do, since the only science they have going for them is pseudoscience." Homosexuality: A Freedom Too Far pp.153-154]

 A gay review board told Hollywood how it should deal or not deal with homosexuality. Mainstream publishers turned down books that objected to the gay revolution. Gays and lesbians influenced sex education in our nation's schools, and gay and lesbian libbers seized wide control of faculty committees in our nations' colleges. State legislatures nullified laws against sodomy.

If the print media paid any attention at all, they tended to hail the gay revolution, possibly because many of the reporters on gay issues were themselves gay and open advocates for the movement. And those reporters who were not gay seemed too intimidated by groupthink to expose what was going on in their own newsrooms.

And now, what happens to those of us who stand up and object? Gay activists have already anticipated that. They have created a kind of conventional wisdom: that we suffer from homophobia, a disease that has actually been invented by gays projecting their own fear on society. And we are bigots besides, because, they say, we fail to deal with gays compassionately.

Gays are now no different than people born black or Hispanic or physically challenged. Since gays are born that way and have no choice about their sexual orientation, anyone who calls same-sex sex an aberration is now a bigot. Un-American, too. Astoundingly now, college freshmen come home for their first Thanksgiving to announce, "Hey, Mom! Hey, Dad! We've taken the high moral ground. We've joined the gay revolution."

BRAINWASHED

ball2.jpgMy wife, Clare, who has an unerring aptitude for getting to the heart of things, said one day recently in passing, "I think everybody's being brainwashed." That gave me a start. I know "brainwashing" is a term that has been used and overused. But my wife's casual observation only reminded me of a brilliant tract I had read several years ago and then forgotten. It was called After the Ball: How America Will Conquer its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 1990's, by Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen.

That book turned out to be the blueprint gay activists would use in their campaign to normalize the abnormal through a variety of brainwashing techniques once catalogued by Robert Jay Lifton in his seminal work, Thought Reform and the Psychology of Totalism: A Study of Brainwashing in China.

These activists got the media and the money to radicalize America-by processes known as desensitization, jamming and conversion. They would desensitize the public by selling the notion that gays were "just like everyone else." This would make the engine of prejudice run out of steam, i.e., lull straights into an attitude of indifference.

They would jam the public by shaming them into a kind of guilt at their own "bigotry." Kirk and Madsen wrote:

   All normal persons feel shame when they perceive that they are not thinking, feeling, or acting like one of the pack....The trick is to get the bigot into the position of feeling a conflicting twinge of shame...when his homo-hatred surfaces. Thus, propagandistic advertisement can depict homophobic and homo-hating bigots as crude loudmouths....It can show them being criticized, hated, shunned. It can depict gays experiencing horrific suffering as the direct result of homohatred-suffering of which even most bigots would be ashamed to be the cause.

Finally-this was the process they called conversion-Kirk and Madsen predicted a mass public change of heart would follow, even among bigots, "if we can actually make them like us." They wrote, "Conversion aims at just this...conversion of the average American's emotions, mind, and will, through a planned psychological attack, in the form of propaganda fed to the nation via the media."

TH.jpgIn the movie "Philadelphia" we see the shaming technique and the conversion process working at the highest media level. We saw Tom Hank's character suffering (because he was gay and had AIDS) at the hands of bigots in his Philadelphia law firm. Not only were we ashamed of the homophobic behavior of the villainous straight lawyers in the firm; we felt nothing but sympathy for the suffering Hanks. (Members of the Motion Picture Academy felt so much sympathy they gave Hanks an Oscar.) Our feelings helped fulfill Kirk and Madsen's strategy: "to make Americans hold us in warm regard, whether they like it or not."

Few dared speak out against "Philadelphia" as an example of the kind of propaganda Kirk and Madsen had called for. By then, four years after the publication of the Kirk-Madsen blueprint, the American public had already been programmed. Homosexuality was now simply "an alternate lifestyle."

Best of all, because of the persuaders embedded in thousands of media messages, society's acceptance of homosexuality seemed one of those spontaneous, historic turnings in time-yes, a kind of conversion. Nobody quite knew how it happened, but the nation had changed. We had become more sophisticated, more loving toward all, even toward those "afflicted" with the malady-excuse me, condition.

By 1992 the President of the United States said it was time that people who were openly gay and lesbian should not be ousted from the nation's armed forces. In 1993 the nation's media celebrated a huge outpouring of gay pride in Washington, D.C. Television viewers chanted along with half a million marchers, "Two, four, six, eight! Being gay is really great." We felt good about ourselves. We were patriotic Americans. We had abolished one more form of discrimination, wiped out one of society's most enduring afflictions: homophobia. Best of all, we knew now that gay was good, gay was free.

Part Two  "Gay is not Good"

Note - A sign of things to come. Searched Google images for "gay zealots" and all I got were anti-gay zealots.  They are filtering perception.

Socarides is a co-founder of NARTH, National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality.

First response from James:  Essentially the Russians won't permit this psychological war on heterosexuals.

Contrary to the media spin, Russia's family values bill does not make homosexuality a crime.  Homosexuality is not illegal in Russia. 
 
What the bill prohibits is "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations,"  defined as "relations not conducive to procreation."  The law imposes significant fines of up to $31,000 for providing information about the LGBT community to minors, holding gay pride events, speaking in defense of gay rights, or equating gay and heterosexual relationships.
 
It's a pro-life, pro-family bill, which is exactly why liberals hate it.  There is no valid reason for providing information about the LGBT community to prepubescent youth.  And some of the so-called "gay pride events" get rather obscene and should not be held in public.  Furthermore, the media throws a hissy fit whenever a heterosexual speaks out about their values, witness A&E's suspension of Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson.  The gays want the right to speak out, but they want to deny the same right to everyone else.  Neither can gay and heterosexual relationships be equated:  man + man = man + woman?  That's not a true equation.

Comments for "How America Went Gay"

Steven said (February 9, 2014):

That is right Henry; Gay is not good!

It is not arrested development, it is not a mental disorder and it is not the next frontier in freedom and love.

So what is it?

The creator of the universe says it is an abomination and a death penalty offense in Leviticus 20 verse 13.

He has called on people to keep his laws and judgments and do them in Leviticus 19 verse 37.

You either agree with Gods judgment or you believe that Satan and his followers are correct and homosexuals should live, practice their perversions and be protected and encouraged by the politically correct powers that be and their sheeple. Trying to charge through the middle wearing a rainbow hat and thong doesn't cut it.


Jeffrey said (February 9, 2014):

Anyone who cares to take the "high moral ground," defending the homosexual lifestyle as normal might want to take a look at this. There is a disclaimer, but in short, it's a look at a "gay pride" gathering in San Francisco in 2008. Extremely graphic, but remember, this takes place yearly, to this day, in broad daylight.

I was open minded and compassionate myself until a series of gay friends/roommates/neighbors/bandmates etc. changed all that. They really create Sodom wherever they congregate.

Once again, this is heavy stuff.

Asim said (February 9, 2014):

I saw a documentary on Netflix, about strong christian families living in the deep south of the states, who happen to also have sons/daughters who were gay. We see one upright Christian mother dismiss her daughter's gay sexuality, only then to be shown a gruesome photo of her daughter committing suicide by hanging herself with a bike chain-the photo is grotesque but very very powerful.

Within a blip of a second, the upright, common sense Christian mother is then seen grovelling to all these gay rights campaigners, shouting 'Never Again,....' It is almost nauseating to watch. However, again, it is a very powerful propaganda tool, and even I began to feel really sorry and guilty for the gays. The program actually made me feel frightened to see gays in a negative light.

With these kinds of films and program on display, how on earth are we supposed to counter the destructive propaganda being churned out on a daily basis??


Tony B said (February 8, 2014):

"All normal persons feel shame when they perceive that they are not thinking, feeling, or acting like one of the pack," say the gay activists.

No way in hell. If that is true I am very proud to NOT be normal. "Acting like one of the pack" has no relation whatever to thinking, it is strictly a matter of manipulated feeling.

And it is the major cause of all our problems in today's world as the shrinks with agendas have worked the manipulation into a science in co-conspiracy with the media, government and academia - even most religion.

It is impossible for a person who actually thinks to spend any amount of time in a modern western school without coming to the abrupt realization that the whole object of those prisons of children is to PREVENT them from thinking by manipulating them constantly to merely emotionally react (feelings) in a pre-induced manner to further the world conquest agenda. Most of their teachers are totally clueless of what it is they are really accomplishing.


Anthony said (February 8, 2014):

In 1989 I saw a documentary that showed estrogens in our food chain was causing an alarming change in the sexuality of nature ie androgyny, and same sex unions. Research was carried out which showed that those living on organic food did not have this disorder compared to those living on conventional food. The documentary showed that there was a balance in the birth data of those living organically whereas the conventional food eaters had a preponderance of female babies (because the trigger switch in the womb to create the male foetus did not fire as it normally would), were promiscuous, and had a lower IQ.

In the socio-anthropological literature there have always been 1% of our population that could be characterized as homosexual. They usually occupied the position of shamans and healers in the various cultures of past. Today however the % is more like 20%, or more.

Although I agree wholeheartedly with the idea that the satanic agenda is promoting this unhealthy practice ( because homosexuality and paedophilia are the marks of the satanist )
promiscuity and homosexuality is due also to our exposure to estrogens and other hormone triggers in our environment - a situation that is now beyond our control.

JG said (February 8, 2014):

This whole insanity of sexual perversion such as "gay" being legitimate and normal behavior is a flat out satanic deception being propagated by Hollywood and the MSM to degenerate the masses.
This is a classic case of Satan attempting to thwart God's plan of being fruitful and reproducing by replacing it with another lie.

I really feel for the innocent ones who have been "duped" by this latest Psy-Op.


Joe A said (February 8, 2014):

Thanks for this article. I always heard homosexuality could be cured. But have never seen a lot of info on the cure. I've seen a ton of info on people painted as Religious zealots or hypocrites who say they can cure homosexuality, then are caught cheating on their wife with a man. I believe similar to when you do a search for gay zealots, the only thing that comes up is anti-gay zealots.

"They" are only showing instances when people claim to heal homosexuality and fail miserably, thus making a joke of the idea. CHARLES W. SOCARIDES. Now I know one piece of truth "they've" been hiding. It was hard for me to argue that it was an aberration that could be cured, without being able to sight a case. Now I can. Awesome.


Debra said (March 11, 2013):

Agreed (with Tony B). The term "gay" is a misnomer for men having sex with men. The correct word to apply to these men is "sodomites". Using
"gay" is part of their brainwashing technique.


Rick said (March 11, 2013):

Read both excerpts on Socarides. Well during this, somehow I came across Kay Griggs, who was married to a Marine. She was interviewed over some 8 hours (which produced a jaw dropping expose). I can't do it justice. You have to see it. This "culture" will continue to expand opening up a Pandora's box of new societal norms. Descent into Hell.

Great article on gays take over America Henry-no question it was well organized & supported by all segments of media & Hollywood ( no surprise there)Super tool to dismantle a nation /Christianity / moral order. & national unity. Jewell of social engineering.


Tony B said (March 11, 2013):

Henry, quit misusing the word "gay." It means happy, not queer. Read that last article substituting the word "queer" or "fagot" every place the word "gay" is misused by the writer (seems like hundreds). When you read that article properly in the manner suggested, it damned near makes you throw up.


Richard said (March 11, 2013):

"Speaking of Freemasonry"... how much support and cover do you think the Grand Lodges have given the "gay movement"? There's always been much smoke the fire: starting with the burning of Knights Templar Grand Master Jaques De Molay and most of his lodge members for sodomy and Satanism 701 years ago this month. The Scottish Rite Freemasons named their teenage boy' incubator organization after this fudge-packer. Mason's consider him a martyr. He's also an LGBT martyr http://gayhistory.wikidot.com/lgbt-victims

For those that don't see a connection between Freemasonry and repeal of sodomy laws and gradualization of gay legislation check out how many in the Senate, Congress, and State Legislatures in the United States are in at least one Masonic organization, including the elite ones like Skull & Bones, Legion of Honor, Order of the Amarath ( wives of Masons masquerading as a charity), etc.

The US Secretary of State has been openly threatening nations all over the world to decriminalize sodomy and get with the program - or lose their US aid or even get on the short list for 'regime change'. It's now plain to see that homosexualization of the WORLD is an UN / CFR / NWO "must be" agenda.

Since homosexuals and lesbians actually comprise less than 2% of the aggregate population they can't have enough money and influence to have gotten so much power all alone. They're being used as chaos agents by a more powerful coterie with another agenda. Top down power has once again created an illusion of hegemony for a fringe demographic and conned even themselves into believing a phony identity profile that's been dreamed up for them.

It's "unnatural" for homosexuals to want marriage, the responsibility of children, or a "straight lifestyle".


Brian said (March 10, 2013):

The 1995 article recently posted on your site sums it up perfectly. There is, and has been for a long time now, a deliberate, sophisticated campaign to push the homosexual disorder on the public. All the tactics laid out in Madsen and Kirk's book are now on open display. Anyone even daring to voice public disapproval of the gay lifestyle (disorder) is roundly vilified as a "hater" and/or "bully".

I have a feeling that there are far more people in the public eye who disapprove of homosexuality, but have been made too timid to come out and say it. Look at what happened last month when that NFL player stated his displeasure at having homosexual men in the locker room. He was forced to give a public apology. You could not ask for a more clear example of the "shaming" tactic mentioned in the above mentioned book.

As for Tom Hanks, I have had my suspicions about him for some time now. If he is not a card carrying Freemason, then he is at the very least one of their little propaganda shills. His first movie, called Mazes and Monsters is rife with occult symbolism, and he has done two propaganda pieces shilling for the NASA moon landing hoax: Apollo 13 directed by another suspected Freemason Ron Howard, and a documentary entitled From The Earth to The Moon. He is also said to be producing an HBO documentary on the Kennedy assassination promoting the long discredited lone gunman theory. The guy is a complete agent as far as I am concerned, and there are many, many more in the movie and music industry as you your readers well know.

Check out the new fashion trend for male rappers - http://bossip.com/697930/pot-meet-kettle-chris-brown-disses-kanyes-diddys-and-vin-diesels-suspect-skirt-rockin-steez-on-instagram/ Could it be any more obvious that someone or some group with lots of money and power is controlling the music industry and using it to reshape society into adopting deviant homosexual behavior patterns?

As said before - your site is a beacon of light amidst an ever widening and expanding veil of darkness descending upon our world. Keep up the great work.
