NARTH trots out pseudo-science in support of Boy Scouts discrimination

NARTH pretentiously postures as a serious scientific organization in contrast to the religious group that it really is.

According to an email, NARTH has released a "BSA White Paper." A "white paper" is supposed to be an authoritative source of information. Well, I'll just provide bullets of the bullshit. According to NARTH:
  • The development of homosexuality is influenced by environment.
  • Premature sexual identity labeling comes with associated risks for youth.
  • Homosexual youth are sexually active significantly earlier than their heterosexual peers.
  • Early life trauma can lead to orientation confusion that calls for professional assistance.
The above is generally sourced with NARTH's own nonsense. While they might mention the CDC, the link is to NARTH. Another two links in the references point to "Health Risks of the Homosexual Lifestyle" From the American College of Pediatricians. The ACP has been designated an anti-gay hate group by the SPLC.

While NARTH would like people to believe otherwise, the presence of gay Scouts is not going to turn straight Scouts into gay Scouts.
