Dr. Nicholas Cummings, who was once president of the American Psychological Association, says the organization that he once ran is being controlled by "ultra-liberals" who are working tirelessly to promote and advance the gay advocacy agenda.
During an interview with the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH), Cummings explained that he saw the mentality of the organization change following the adoption of the Leona Tyler Principle 1973, which required that all positions made public by the APA be supported with scientific evidence. He noticed the organization venturing further away from the positions laid forth by the Leona Tyler Principle.
Cummings, who was president of the APA from 1979 to 1980, explained that the organization "started changing pretty drastically by the late 1980s." more >>
A bill that would ban "conversion therapy" for homosexual minors passed the California State Senate on Wednesday after being amended to exclude some of the other regulations included in the proposed legislation.
The upper house of the legislature voted 23 to 13 in favor of SB 1172, which was introduced by State Senator Ted Lieu and if enacted would affect organizations that provide the therapy.
David Pruden, vice president of Operations for the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH), told The Christian Post that he was unsurprised by the vote result. more >>
To celebrate its fifth year of operation, the Creation Museum in Kentucky has set up a holographic exhibit of the famous "Lucy" discovery.
Answers in Genesis opened the museum on Memorial Day weekend in 2007, and to celebrate its anniversary this year it added a special holographic exhibit of the famous fossil as a permanent fixture.
Mark Looy, co-founder and chief communications officer for Answers in Genesis and the Creation Museum, told The Christian Post that "Lucy" was chosen as a focus due to proponents of evolution continually using it as evidence for their belief. more >>
The SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft arrived at the International Space Station yesterday completing its mission and first official test run.
This is the first time the station has ever made an official "hook-up" with a commercial spacecraft and first time it has had contact with the U.S.-made ship since last year's retirement of NASA's space shuttle fleet.
The SpaceX capsule is the first of many commercial cargo spacecraft the U.S. plans to send to the International Space Station. These types of capsules could eventually be used to transport astronauts to and from the station as well. more >>
For the first time since 1994, Northern California residents will have a chance to witness a rare annular solar eclipse on Sunday.
Those living in the Bay Area can drive just a few hours and catch a glimpse at this rare phenomenon.
Annular eclipses differ from normal solar eclipses since they have a different effect on the moon, where instead of completely blocking out the sun, it leaves a "ring of fire" surrounding the moon's dark silhouette. more >>
The biggest moon of the year has approached this month and can be seen at its biggest and brightest Saturday, May 5.
In the U.S., the moon will reach its peak fullness at 11:35 p.m. EST. Almost simultaneously, the moon's perigee will occur, meaning the moon will reach its closest point to Earth in its orbit. Because of the moon's closeness to Earth, Saturday's supermoon will be especially pronounced.
At perigee, the moon lies only 221,802 kilometers from the Earth along its orbit. Later this month on May 19 the moon will reach its apogee- the farthest point from the Earth, at 252,555 miles away. more >>
