The Tablet of Wisdom, written by Bahá’u’lláh, the founder of the Baháʼí Faith, names “Balinus” (Apollonius) as a great philosopher, who “surpassed everyone else in the diffusion of arts and sciences and soared unto the loftiest heights of humility and supplication.” In another text Baháʼu’lláh states that he “derived his knowledge and sciences from the Hermetic Tablets and most of the philosophers who followed him made their philosophical and scientific discoveries from his words and statements”.”
“As conflict-oriented brief psychotherapy, we have already carried out Positive Psychotherapy with the following clinical profiles: Sexual disturbances (sexual anxiety in women, frigidity, hypersexuality, disturbances of potency in the man, premature ejaculation, weak erection, sexual anxiety, compulsive onanism, and homosexuality perceived as pathological).
“Conversion therapy is the pseudoscientific practice of attempting to change an individual’s sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression to align with heterosexual and cisgender norms. In contrast to evidence-based medicine and clinical guidance, such practices typically view homosexuality and gender variance as unnatural or unhealthy. There is a scientific consensus that conversion therapy is ineffective at changing a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity and that it frequently causes significant, long-term psychological harm in individuals who undergo it.
Common methods of conversion therapy are counseling, visualization, social skills training, psychoanalytic therapy, and spiritual interventions. Other methods that have been used include ice-pick lobotomies; chemical castration with hormonal treatment; aversive treatments, such as “the application of electric shock to the hands and/or genitals”; “nausea-inducing drugs … administered… with the presentation of homoerotic stimuli”; and masturbatory reconditioning.
An increasing number of jurisdictions around the world have passed laws against conversion therapy. Conversion therapy may constitute fraud and has been described by experts as torture, cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment, and contrary to human rights norms.”
Chomsky did not refute Skinner for nothing, and I will not be a part of positum anymore.
I will change the blog to something else. I have encountered an actual person in Bahai faith on twitter and specifically asked about homosexuality on Bahai religion same answer.
