Welcome to Core Issues Trust

 When the Right of Choice is Denied"                                                                 "Gay Ideology and Galileo"

Core is a non-profit Christian ministry supporting men and women with homosexual issues who voluntarily seek change in sexual preference and expression. It respects the rights of individuals who identify as 'gay' who do not seek change, and supports dignity for LGBT persons. It does not support gay "marriage" - usually considered an "equality" issue, premised on the belief that being gay is "biological"   and is therefore unchangeable. Please read our "Statement on Prejudice".

'Gay Conversion' (sic) Therapy Ban 26th February, 2014

Bus Advert High Court of Appeal Case Verdict: 27 January, 2014.

 Core Issues Trust is an organisational member of LinC ("Live in Christ") an association of like-minded European Ministries working to encourage those who wish to move away from homosexual practices and identities. 

 

 

 

 

We are also organisational members of the Association of Christian Counsellors and uphold the freedoms of autonomous individuals to seek, and to receive, therapeutic support for unwanted same-sex attractions, from counsellors and psychotherapists.

 Through its internationalisation section, the International Federation for Therapeutic Choice (IFTC), we also value our organisational membership of the National Association for Research into Therapy for Homosexuality.

 

An important video:

 

Above is a helpful new video from the USA (Family Watch International cf Policy Brief on SOCE) exposing the mistaken notion of banning therapeutic support from mental health professionals for individuals who aspire to reduce their homosexual feelings or, where possible, change their sexual patterning. 

Note separately also the current Early Day Motion (219) in the United Kingdom to ban such therapy for minors and (as amended) for adults. Note also the Counsellors and Psychotherapists (Regulation) Bill 2013-2014 (now published) about to have its 2nd reading in the House of Commons Friday 24th January, 2014. This bill similarly aims to ban therapists from offering assistance to those wanting to reduce unwanted homosexual feelings and behaviours.


Dr Mike Davidson has now been notified that his application to appeal the UKCP and BPA's decision to expel him, has been rejected. His expulsion relates to views he expressed on the BBC that for some people homosexuality is changeable and that with informed consent, those seeking to reduce homosexual feelings where possible, should be supported by therapists. 


 

 

I didn't choose my homosexual feelings, but I knew I had choices around these feelings...

Sexual Identities and the right of Choice: "The Big Questions" BBC 1

The Core Vision and Core Values and ethical statements recognise that sexual expression outside of marriage between one man and one woman, and homosexual genital expression is not God’s will for His people. Resource material cited on this site can be purchased from the online bookstore. The Core Learning Community provides a secure, online learning site providing a place for those coming out of homosexuality, and those who support them, to connect and learn from one another.

Protest outside Stonewall's Conference, July 2012: British Library

Protest at 7th Annual Stonewall Conference, July, 2012

In July 2012, we raised concerns about Stonewall's insistance that the root of bullying in UK schools is "homophobic" in nature. There is a very narrow line between education about homosexuality and its promotion through social engineering, or indoctrination. We call on the government to ensure that children are not socialised into homosexual practice because no alternatives are presented through the curriculum, and because the voice of non-practising homosexuals and "ex-gays" is silenced.
