Basically, I agree that secular psychology and psychiatry(Freud thought himself as a psychiatrist not "psychologist", btw) is at best a philosophy
, and people like professor of Psychiatry Th. Szasz(only referring to the most famous) would say a religion
. For example, there never were -and have never been proven through objective tests- any biochemical imbalances that cause "mental illness", and the brain is not known to us, the science of neurology has not gone so far yet and probably will never go. Thus, I think it's only natural for them to think that there are positive elements in "homosexuality" and that trying to change a person -provided that he himself is willing to!- of this orientation is not "legitimate". Of course, homosexuality was considered a "mental illness" some decades ago and after a certain voting which took place, it was removed(!). This is natural and expected, when you deal with things that can be so subjective, cannot be measured and are of a moral(as St. Nektarios said), behavioural nature which the Medical Profession has nothing to do with.
I hope that someday everybody, at least inside the church, will understand that the answers to such questions do not come from the outside knowledge, but from the Patristic one, from the knowledge of the Uncreated. And this is why the basis for the apophatic anthropology of Orthodoxy is not some modern day professional, but Gregory of Nyssa and his work upon the construction of man. I know this is a large topic, of course ...
I hope it's not too late for some people -which happens sometimes to the Christian homeopathetic professionals.
