Published! (finally)

My article that uses virtue ethics to examine the practice of counseling those for whom same-sex attraction and their religious beliefs conflict has finally gone to press and is available. I would be glad to send (electronically) a copy to anyone who drops me an email to that effect. I would definietely like some feedback from a Christian Ethics, 2 kingdoms, vocation, Law-Gospel, perspective.

Here is the abstract:

This article addresses the treatment of individuals who experience conflict between
their religious convictions and their same-sex attraction. Recently, attention has been
drawn to the ethical issues involved in the practice of sexual reorientation therapy
(SRT) with such conflicted individuals. This article reviews the ethical arguments for
and against SRT through the lens of the general ethical principles of the American
Psychological Association’s (2002) ethics code. Practitioners are then challenged to
think about how they might respond virtuously (Meara, Schmidt,&Day, 1996) when
presented with such a client. Thought questions are presented to assist therapists to
develop in virtue while working with religious clients who are conflicted about
same-sex desire.
