Laurie Higgins of the Illinois Family Institute (IFI) suggests no one should ever consider the American Psychological Association a legitimate source again, citing the push for “consensual non-monogamy” from a group of lesbian and homosexual psychologists.

According to Higgins and IFI, an APA group known as Division 44, founded in the 1980s, formed a "task force advisory board" last year that examined consensual non-monogamy in the interest of “relationship diversity" and has now released its findings. 

“Consensual mon-monogamy” is professional euphemism for adultery and infidelity.

Reading from the task force’s conclusions, Higgins tells OneNewsNow the LGBT group aims to promote “awareness and inclusivity” about what it calls “diverse expressions” of intimate relationships.

According to the task force:

These include but are not limited to people who practice polyamory, open relationships, swinging relationship anarchy and other types of ethical non-monogamous relationships.

It had been included as a mental disorder in the very first DSM published in 1952.

According to the Human Rights Campaign, the homosexual lobbying group, the ruling “helped shift public opinion, marking a major milestone for LGBTQ equality.”

Now, 45 years later, the push from the task force of university professors, licensed therapists, activists, and writers is to defend and legitimive polyamory.

The task force members and their controversial contributions are listed here thanks to Higgins and IFA.

The task force even has "research" about its proponents suffering discrimination for their views. 

According to Higgins, however, the latest opinions from Division 44 open the door to the destruction of the traditional family and to marriages in particular.

“We know that the only criterion left is consent,” she observes. “So if people consent to something, no matter how deviant, no matter how it undermines human dignity, it's ethical.”
