According to Leanne Payne, there is if homosexuality is seen for what it really is, and is then dealt with in light of Scripture - as a condition to be repented of, forgiven, and healed through Christ. Written with the author's usual depth and compassion, this book brings a message of hope to those who suffer from homosexual neurosis and teaches those who minister to them ...more

Dear Leanne Payne:

I hope wherever you go when you die only has gay porn movies for entertainment and you're forced to watch them for eternity.

Healing Homosexuality deserves 5 stars for pointing out why people kill themselves everyday.

It also deserves a painful death.

I'd rather read the iTunes user agreement, twice over, plus a quiz, then continue on to write a 10 page essay on the logistics of buying and selling pissed on car parts.

I read this book and I hated it. But I'm sure the author is a very friendly and loving person, Amazon.

The dragon has spoken! You, madam, are a dickwad.
I think by now we all know that homosexuality is not something that can be 'healed'. And anyone who says otherwise should get their head examined.

Ignorance is appalling!

What's worse is that it's books like this one, spreading hateful messages and lies, that have directly and indirectly contributed to the bullying and subsequent suffering of the LGBTQ community, including but not limited to hate crimes against them and even suicides.

I am a proud ally. This book made me sick to my stomach.

I feel so ashamed to be a human being right now, but then I realize that it is not me that should be ashamed of herself.

No. Just no. If you genuinely think this book works, or you know somebody who is forced to attend these 'healing' sessions with their pastor, you really need a long, hard look at your life.

Anything written by these 'healing' pastors is a massive pile of steaming bullshit. 'Being gay is unnatural! You must have had something traumatic happen in your childhood! You shouldn't feel this way!'

No, sorry, but it is natural. It's not a product of trauma or a decision to go against the status quo. It's h

1 Corinthians 13

(1) If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. (2) If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. (3) If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

(4) Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not b

Hateful and soul destroying, it astounds me that anyone still believes that homosexuality is a condition to be healed. WTF seriously they need their heads examined, awful and one hopes it will be wiped to smithereens.

I have not read this book, nor do I have intention of reading this book. But I would like to say on behalf of Christians everywhere, I'm sorry that Christianity is portrayed in such a horrible, hateful, and frightening way in this book. I feel sick that this pathetic excuse of an author uses the Scripture and God as an excuse to be homophobic, sickening, and generally, a horrible person.

I don't want to get too political or too religious here on Goodreads, but I would like to say that I'm sorry t

Dear Mrs/Ms. Payne, if Christian people say, “no one is born gay”, they would forget that, "no one is born Christian" either.

For some reasons, I found myself laughing and crying after reading this "unsophisticated" book. Laughing to see how things have changed after 20 years since this book first released. And crying to feel the pains and sorrows of those homosexual people who lived in that terrible time. They might be endured a long period of depression. Who knows and who cares, right?

It hurts
