Reparative Therapy?

There is continued discussion in the media surround so-called "reparative therapy" that in laymen's terms would basically reorient a homosexual and make them "straight". Of course the liberal wing of our society finds this repulsive. Is it possible for a person who has had sexual attactions to, thoughts about, and even experiences with a person of the same sex to be changed? As a counselor I might not agree with all the methodologies of some therapies, but here is an interesting comment from a wiser source:

"Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God."

-Paul, 1 Corinthians 6:9-11
