Pope advises prayer and psychiatric care to cure homosexuality in children: Pope Francis has recommended prayer and psychiatric help to parents with children who show homosexual tendencies. He made these remarks on his return from a two-day visit to Ireland, the first in 40 years of a pontif to this very Catholic country. The Pope recommends prayer in the first instance. "Do not condemn, have a dialogue," he says. He added that if the signs first appear in childhood, there is a lot that can be done with psychiatric help to see how things stand. According to him, it is a different thing if the signs are first seen after 20 years.
