Tell UK Home Office: No Government Health Advisors Who Believe Gay People Can Be Cured

Meet Dr. Hans-Christian Raabe, a doctor in the United Kingdom who was just named to a prominent government advisory committee.
Dr. Raabe is a member of a religious movement that believes homosexuality is destructive and unhealthy, and that gay people can be cured. He's coordinator of a group known as the Council for Health and Wholeness (CHW), which believes in a host of controversial (and not terribly scientifically sound) theories about homosexuality. Among the more frightening nuggets?
"The media and the gay movement portray the homosexual lifestyle as happy, healthy and fulfilled. However, the homosexual lifestyle is associated with a large number of very serious physical and emotional health consequences," says a CHW document authored by Dr. Raabe himself.
And there's plenty more.
In another document, Dr. Raabe notes: "A high proportion of homosexual men engage in a destructive lifestyle."
And then comes the real kicker. This professional, who now sits on a prominent UK advisory board, believes that there's a tie between homosexuality and pedophilia. In a paper that Dr. Raabe co-authored, the medicine man describes gay people as having a penchant for abusing children.
"It is of grave concern that there is a disproportionately greater number of homosexuals among pedophiles and an overlap between the gay movement and the movement to make pedophilia acceptable," Dr. Raabe noted in the piece.
This type of "science" should simply not be honored or rewarded by the UK government. Send the Home Office and the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs that you expect their health professionals to stick to science, not anti-gay dogma, in their research and work.
