Minister removes Christian anti-gay therapy from health insurance
05 June 2012

Therapy provided by a Christian mental health group to help homosexuals 'repress their sinful urges' is being removed from the basic health package, health minister Edith Schippers told parliament in a briefing on Tuesday.

In January, the minister said she found it 'bizarre' that the treatment offered by the orthodox Christian organisation Different was being paid for by health insurers. However, because the Different is officially recognised as a provider of therapies, insurers could not refuse to pay.

Now health inspectors have investigated Different and said there is no question of people 'wrestling' with their homosexual feelings having psychiatric problems because of their religious beliefs, reports the Telegraaf.

Such people should seek pastoral care which should not be paid for by health insurance, the inspectors say. 'In these cases, there is no question of a psychiatric diagnosis or psychiatric treatment,' they say. dutchnews.nl

The relation that the "thuggish dutch" has with the McCanns is that apparently they are all British.

All the Dutch I know hope that in the future you keep these type of people on the island.

It’s a funny old world.

It certainly is lass, it certainly is.

I've just realised why I don't do forums, I'm neither moral enough, nor small minded enough.

By the by, I must put some batteries in the camera and take a few pics. Tis getting near time.

If I can remember which end you look through.

Doesn't bode well for the future.

I wonder how many have gone from this country to do their jihaddy thing?

Oh god. I got into a lengthy e-mail discussion/debate with this guy a while back. He simply could not believe that I was a straight male who was passionate about gay rights. Couldn't believe it, "accused" me over and over again of being gay. Such an idiot.
