Rabbinical Alliance Of America
Dr. Laura Schlessinger
The Rabbinical Alliance of America unreservedly supports
Paramount Television’s Media sponsorship of Dr. Laura
Schlessinger’s popular message that is scheduled to begin in
We see the viscous attacks on Dr. Schlessinger by pro-gay
groups as lacking legitimacy. Dr. Schlessinger had repeatedly
denied being anti-homosexual or trying to ferment intolerance
of homosexuals, saying that some of her statements that “were
made in a clinical context” were being deliberately
misinterpreted by her critics. Dr. Schlessinger has correctly
categorized the homosexual lifestyle as “deviant”. She has
vigorously advocated therapies aimed at redirecting
homosexuals toward achieving healthy heterosexual lifestyles.
Dr. Schlessinger is a prominent personality who speaks
about moral and ethical issues on her call-in radio program.
Her radio show is nationally syndicated to more than 450
stations and reaches an estimated 18,000,000 listeners.
It is our fervent hope that her message will reach an even
larger audience. There are too few voices urging full
restoration of our traditional family lifestyle values. Dr.
Schlessinger deserves strong encouragement, not the groundless
criticism of her moral viewpoint.
