Straighten Up And Fly Right

Got a relative you'd like to straighten out? Well, have we got some good news for you.

Focus on the Family, the Colorado Springs-based Christian media ministry, on Monday endorsed a recent study finding that it is possible, through religious mediation, to change one's sexual orientation.

Study findings were first released last week in a book, "Ex—Gays? A Longitudinal Study of Religiously Mediated Change in Sexual Orientation."

The researchers Stanton L. Jones of Wheaton College and Mark A. Yarhouse of Regent University tracked men and women who had undergone a program of group discussions, counseling, journal writing, Scripture reading and prayer to change their gender orientation.
And if that "funny" relative happens to be Mexican or Polish, and thus has trouble comprehending that epic narrative of insanity fronting as a book title, not to worry : Focus on the Family works with 26 languages. Which is good, because Uncle Julio will need all the help he can get with terms like "change their gender orientation." Yikes!
