The world is changing towards increasing intolerance and viewpoint discrimination. Advocacy science is replacing inquiry science and ideological monocultures prevent the celebration of true diversity, or the diversity of the created order. What is the way forward? What strategies need to be in place to achieve the goals of professional and pastoral support for those with unwanted same-sex attraction and gender confusion? At what cost does a counter-cultural approach take and what does this mean for the IFTCC?
