Costs Demand from TFL against CIT

Transport for London (TFL) lawyers have asked the Enforcements of Judgements Office in Belfast to issue a Custody Warrent against all goods of Core Issues Trust.

The warrent requires payment of £8870.87 despite the fact that cases between 2013-2015 indicated proceedural flaws in TFL’s dealings with CIT, and that Mayor Boris Johnson had been dishonest in disclaiming his role in the banning of our 2012 advertisment. The warrant, designed to silence the work and witness of the Trust, remains inplace until payment of this amount has been made. All events, projects and operations of CIT remain functional. Current balance = £5,437.25. Thank you for your generosity! The full £8870.87 demand must be paid by 22nd February, 2016.

The Right to Decide: Seeking justice for choices around unwanted same-sex attractions

The Right to Decide: Seeking justice for choices around unwanted same-sex attractions

Most of the stories in this book demonstrate the major and profound influence of faith on behaviour. Yet what matters here is not the issue of faith, but the individual’s right to choose how they want to live. If people decide on the basis of faith to devote their lives to helping the socially deprived, society says that is good, and honours them. Yet if they voice a similar faith based conviction as regards their sexuality and preferred lifestyle, they find themselves condemned.

What the Research Does and Does Not Say: Is Therapeutic Support for Unwanted Smae-sex Attractions Harmful?

“What the Research Does and Does Not Say …” should be required reading for mental health providers, physicians, client/patient advocates, legislative and judicial bodies involved in matters regarding human sexual identity.

Cretella, MD, Vice President, American College of Pediatricians

Beyond Critique: The Misuse of Science by UK Professional Mental Health Bodies

Beyond Critique: The Misuse of Science by UK Professional Mental Health Bodies

A politically correct ideology is rapidly encroaching on the western world, an ideology which is subtly reshaping the values of society as regards attitudes to sexuality. The shock lies not in the fact of reshaping, for society must always adapt or die, but in the discovery that significant areas of scientific endeavour are now influenced by ideology rather than by pure research.

Parliamentary Debate on ‘Stamping Out’ Gay Cure (sic) Therapies in the UK

Please be advised that we are unaware of any informal or professional psychotherapeutic or counselling practitioner in the UK, Republic of Ireland, Europe or the USA practising ‘gay cure’ as articulated by Minister Morgan as including ‘electro-shock’ and/or ‘aversion’ (nauseous drug) therapies. Where these exist we support such a ban. However, client rights to informed consent and self-determination deserve protection and respect.
