A priest, a rapist, and a child molester walk into a bar. And that's just the first guy!
Homeopathy gets an interesting rap. Some people think that they are just sugar pills, some people think they motivate people's bodies to heal themselves.
There are people who still feel homosexuality is a biological misfunction.
You can guess where this is going.
A Catholic doctors' association in Germany is claiming they can "cure" homosexuality through homeopathy. They also hasten to add they only do this to willing volunteers.
The Lesbian And Gay Federation in Germany, naturally, is not amused. The Union Of Catholic Physicians (UCP), however, insists they are not being discriminatory. It writes on its website that "homosexuality is not an illness" but their treatments can keep such "inclinations" at bay. "We know about a number of people with homosexual feelings who find themselves in a spiritual and psychological emergency and suffer greatly," said UCP head Gero Winkelmann in a written statement. "If someone is unhappy, ill or feels they are in an emergency, they should be able to find options for help with us."
I just hate that, even after all this time and all these advances, there are still people that treat homosexuality like a disease. And I'll bet you a dollar to a doughnut hole that some of those people campaigning against it are as queer or queerer than the people they publicly shame.
Hey, if that stuff really works, how about shipping some to the Vatican? (I found out years later after I had bailed on the Catholic church that the priest when I was growing up was a child molester, and apparently the only thing that literally saved my ass was my anti-establishment streak that made me refuse to be an altar boy. In fact, I was the only one in my CCD class that never served, which makes me wonder about some of the kids who enjoyed abusing me all those years.)
