Dr. Neil Whitehead, PhD is a research scientist in New Zealand who has worked with the New Zealand government for 24 years and with the UN for four years. His wife Briar is a journalist and writer.
Today's Friday 5 from CitizenLink talks to Dr. and Mrs. Whitehead about their research into the causes of homosexuality.
Many homosexuals claim there is a genetic cause which predetermines homosexual behavior, but this is an attempt to avoid moral responsibility for one's choices.
Among the many causes of homosexuality, Dr. Whitehead lists sexual abuse, failure to identify with masculinity or rebellion against it, exclusion and bullying, and other things.
People have been leaving homosexual behavior behind for thousands of years, and only recently has it become a "professional" opinion among some that homosexual behavior cannot be changed.
Dr. Neil and Briar Whitehead spoke at the annual NARTH conference in Denver recently. They shared some of their insights with Kim Trobee.
