"Hong Kong has hired a prominent local psychiatrist who claims he can "re-wire" homosexuals as a trainer for its social welfare staff, sparking outrage among gay rights activists on Friday.
Critics said the move could be the world's first government-sponsored training session on gay conversion therapy, which includes prayer, cold showers and practising abstinence as a way to avoid same-sex relationships."I feel for all of the gay and lesbian citizens of Hong Kong, for their Government has decided that they need to be "changed" to align with a more "normal" lifestyle. And as one who has gone through this type of therapy and knows it detrimental effects, I can only pray for those lives that will be devastated by the Governments move.
