Mark Craddock, Christian Sect Doctor, Banned For Prescribing 'Gay Cure' Drug Used For Castration

Source: Huffington Post

An Australian doctor and member of a conservative Christian sect has been banned from practicing medicine after he prescribed a teenager a chemical castration drug to be used as a "gay cure."

--------------------------------------------------------

The teen went to visit the 75-year-old doctor who then prescribed him with a "gay cure": the anti-androgen therapy cyproterone acetate, sold under the brand name Cyprostat, along with five repeats, according to ninemsn. He said the doctor did not refer him to a psychologist or discuss the drug's side effects.

This is particularly disturbing to me, because I have a gay evangelical character in my book that takes this same drug to control the "urges."

Disgusting doctor, to put it mildly. In my book, jail time is called for.

5. You have to bear

in mind that these folks (the "pray-away-the-gay", "conversion therapy", etc.) are DEEPLY mentally disturbed.

Thusly, they employ the "ends justifies the means" mentality in order their achieve their desired "results". Frankly, a lot of 'em need to be locked up in a madhouse; they're paranoid delusionals, convinced that "teh gay" is out to get them and their families.
