This response by the Family Research Council about the APA decision to back gay marriage, is, by any standard, pretty tepid stuff, and most certainly when compared to some of the things they say:
“The theory that being denied the right to ‘marry’ same-sex partners damages the mental health of homosexuals and the children they raise is a convenient one–but unsupported by research,” Sprigg said.
Sprigg continued, “The mental health benefits of marriage result from the natural union of a man and a woman, not from the granting of government benefits upon any household that demands them.”
At any rate, not much there, but this wording from the newspaper itself is kind of weird:
Throughout its history, APA has taken a progressive stance toward homosexuality. In 1973, APA removed homosexuality from their list of mental disorders, and in 2000, the organization publicly supported same-sex civil unions.
I guess not recognizing something as a disorder is considered progressive.
At any rate, not hing much there, lest I hastily be accused of Christian bashing. I just thought that phraseology was weird. Not as awkward as some of the stuff I write, by any stretch of the imagination, but weird nonetheless.
