APA officially endorses same-sex marriage

The American Psychological Association (APA) placed itself squarely into the debate over same-sex “marriage” late last week, reports CitizenLink. The governing body of the APA’s 154,000 members voted 157-0 on a resolution in support of redefining marriage. Since 2004, it has contributed 11 amicus briefs in favor of same-sex “marriage.”

The resolution said “emerging evidence suggests that statewide campaigns to deny same-sex couples legal access to civil marriage are a significant source of stress to the lesbian, gay and bisexual residents of those states and may have negative effects on their psychological well-being.”

Rogers H. Wright and Nicholas A. Cummings, past presidents of divisions within the APA and self-identified “lifelong liberal activists,” would not be surprised with the APA’s decision.

“Political diversity is so absent in mental health circles that most psychologists and social workers live in a bubble,” Cummings once wrote. “So seldom does anyone express ideological disagreement with colleagues that they believe all intelligent people think as they do.

“They are aware that conservatives exist, but regard the term ‘intelligent conservative’ as an oxymoron.”

In their book, “Destructive Trends in Mental Health,” Wright and Cummings concluded that the APA is now run by “agenda-driven ideologues” and that “psychology, psychiatry and social work have been captured by an ultra-liberal agenda.”
