Well we always knew the Freed Unit at MGM was the dark heart of The Gay Agenda. But as Pastor Jeffress explains more than mere Chinoiserie is involved.
Yes friends, it’s all because of Anna Mae Wong!
Curiously she’s not mentioned by name in the writings of THIS dude.
“Charles W. Socarides (January 24, 1922 – December 25, 2005) was an American psychiatrist, psychoanalyst, physician, educator, and author. Socarides was born in Brockton, Massachusetts. Socarides focused much of his career on the study of homosexuality, which he believed can be altered.He helped found the National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH) in 1992 and worked extensively with the organization until his death.”
Unlike the pastor —
“He did not consider the underlying desires of homosexuality immoral, stating that “Once my patients have achieved an insight into these dynamics – and realized there is no moral fault involved in their longtime and mysterious need – they have moved rather quickly on the road to recovery.”
Yeah, sure, Doc.
“In 1995, Socarides published Homosexuality: A Freedom Too Far. Socarides wrote in the introduction that, “…I have written a book that brings everything together in a familiar, question-and-answer format. In this I had a model, Galileo’s Dialogue on the World’s Great Systems.” Socarides warned his readers that, “…some of my statements may come across as shocking, or crude, or too graphic – even pornographic. I can only say that these words derive from the subject matter itself; they are not meant to titillate, or amuse, or promote prejudice or bias.”
In the fourth chapter, Origins, Socarides discussed the development of homosexuality. He criticized Simon LeVay’s scientific research on the hypothalamus on several grounds, including the lack of proof of whether the size of INAH3 was the cause of homosexuality or the reverse, the fact that LeVay could not rule out the possibility that AIDS had affected the size of INAH3, the fact that the study had not been duplicated, and the possibility that INAH3 did not exist. Socarides denounced attempts to change homosexuality through lobotomy and aversion therapy as “quackeries”, adding that “Doctors who tried them were only treating symptoms. They didn’t get to the root cause.” Socarides also suggested that serial killer and cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer was an extreme example of a common homosexual type, writing “Every homosexual who wants to incorporate the body of his male lover is utilizing the same mental mechanism: incorporation. Most homosexuals are content to do this symbolically. Dahmer was psychotic; he took his homosexual disorder beyond the limits.”
In the sixth chapter, Psychiatry, Socarides wrote that the removal of homosexuality from the American Psychiatric Association’s DSM-II was a mistake, and blamed it for the AIDS epidemic. Socarides compared the American gay community to confused children and the APA to their parents. Socarides criticized Dr. Robert Spitzer, writing that Ronald Bayer’s book Homosexuality and American Psychiatry revealed him as, “…someone who crosses far over the line, from science to open advocacy of a political position. Bayer tells us that Spitzer had never even published a paper on homosexuality.” Socarides claimed that the vote for the removal of homosexuality in the APA’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, which was won by a 65% majority rule, was heavily influenced by a letter sent by the National Gay Task Force to the 18,000 APA members asking them to support its removal.”
“Richard Socarides (born 1954) is president of Equality Matters, a gay rights organization. He was a White House adviser under United States President Bill Clinton from 1993 to 1999 in a variety of senior positions, including as Special Assistant to the President and Senior Adviser for Public Liaison. He served as principle adviser to Clinton on gay and lesbian civil rights issues and is one of the highest ranking gay persons ever to serve in the federal government. Under Clinton, he was Chief Operating Officer of the 50th Anniversary Summit of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Socarides has also worked as special assistant to Senator Tom Harkin (D-Iowa). From 2000 to 2006, Socarides held senior positions at Time Warner, New Line Cinema, and AOL.
An attorney, Socarides currently serves as Of Counsel to the New York and Los Angeles law firm of Brady Klein & Weissman, where his practice focuses on litigation, family law and the legal rights of gay men and lesbians. He has authored Op Ed opinion pieces on gay rights for The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Politico.com, The Huffington Post, and AmericaBlog. He has received awards from the Human Rights Campaign, the Lesbian and Gay Law Association of Greater New York, the New York City Gay and Lesbian Anti-Violence Project, and the Henrick-Martin Institute.
Socarides has served on the boards of directors of GLAAD and Lambda Legal. He often appears as a political commentator on television.
Socarides, who is openly gay, is the son of the late Charles Socarides (1922 – 2005), a psychiatrist and controversial critic of the American Psychiatric Association’s decision to remove homosexuality from its list of mental disorders.”
Obviously some wiley oriental got their claws into Richard.
Fu Manchu perchance?
No, I think it was —
You can easily see how much Anna Mae influenced Will & Grace
Not to mention secret oriental agent Tom Hanks — seen here seducing upright heterosexual Denzel Washington
Yes friends, Anna Mae had Callas was under her spell as well, thus seducing a generation of opera-loving men into . . .perversion!
Still one question remans: Is there anything Chinese about The Rainbow Queen?
I’m sure Pastor Jeffress next sermon will have the skinny on that one.
