Dear Mr Davies

Re: Letter 1: Opposition to Early Day Motion 219 'Gay-to-straight conversion therapy in the UK'

I would agree with part of your motion that deviant sexual behaviour, "being lesbian, gay or bisexual is not a disease or illness" and that is because such behaviour is sin: the breaking of God's commandments and the natural created order and function of sexual organs and sexual desires.

The unspoken but underlying premise for your motion is that people are born gay or are innately gay. This is, however, completely false. There is no scientific or medical evidence to support your premise.

Even Peter Tatchell (Guardian, 28 June 2006) admitted "Much as I would love to go along with the fashionable "born gay" consensus (it would be very politically convenient), I can't. The evidence does not support the idea that sexuality is a fixed biological given." In other words, people change their sexual behaviour through choice or desire.

So why are you sponsoring a motion that is based on a lie?

For parliamentarians this is nothing new as the public watched the appalling abuse of process and the flagrant disregard of logic and true debate on the Same Sex Marriage bill, which will ultimately deny every child the right to a natural mother and natural father. That is child abuse, so why do you support the NSPCC? Are you not advocating and promoting emotional cruelty to children, who have no choice in the matter, by saying through that bill that their same-sex parents are equivalent to a natural mother and father?

Now you are proposing another bill to continue the revisionist agenda of parliamentarians, to deny that humans are created male and female with sexual desires for the opposite sex and, as a natural consequence of their sexual union, reproduce.

What will happen to young people who through peer pressure or wrong choices adopt a homosexual lifestyle and then later, reject the perversion and marry a person of the opposite sex and have children? Do they need sexual orientation realignment therapy to return to being gay? What nonsense!

Marriage has been revised; the name for this natural union has been corrupted by parliamentarians so that it is now meaningless. Activists admit that their real goal is complete freedom from morality and marriage, so your proposal is only a part of their agenda.

Sex at birth has been revised by the word gender; so that GLBTQ's can switch between male and female characteristics to suit their temperament.

Then, like a holocaust denier, you propose that it is "potentially extremely harmful" to help someone seeking to change their same-sex attraction and behaviour, to natural opposite sex attraction and behaviour.

The NHS is there to "deliver good healthcare to all", so if someone seeks help voluntarily to behave like a normal person using their sex organs in a healthy way, why shouldn't the NHS support with counselling therapy the delivery of biologically normal behaviour? The answer is because gay parliamentarians can't stand to be told that their behaviour is not normal.

Parliamentarians, like all bullies, have no argument and therefore use insulting and sarcastic terms like "voodoo magic" to describe counsellors who offer help to same-sex attracted people.

There is also a secondary agenda here to stop Christian counsellors who want to help their congregation to deal with sin in their life by teaching that homosexuality is not natural and is against God's word. It is plain to see that parliamentarians want to bury the perversity of homosexuality under the straight jacket of legislation to force compliance and acceptance by society even though instinctively everyone knows it is wrong, even you.

Is the next thing you will be proposing that adults who have a minor-attracted sexual orientation (aka paedophilia) need legislation to be treated as normal? Sadly, it looks like other senior members of the Labour Party have got there before you. (Daily Mail, 14 December 2013). You and your fellow parliamentarians are an utter disgrace and do indeed have a serious "moral disorder".

Yours sincerely

Dr James B Waddell
