Skip to comments.The New Campaign to End Gay Conversion Therapy
Posted on 06/24/2014 7:58:14 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
A new push to end the practice launched on Tuesday
Sam Brinton says that his father first tried physical abuse to rid his young son of homosexual feelings. When that didnt work, Brintons parents turned to something called reparative therapy.
Some of the memories are hazy more than 10 years later, but Brinton does remember the tactics the counselor used. There was talk therapy, about how God disapproved, and there was aversion therapy, during which pictures of men touching men would be accompanied by the application of heat or ice. It was pretty much mental torture, Brinton says. To this day, I still have light pain when I shake hands with another male.
More than a decade after leading medical organizations abandoned the idea that homosexuality was something that could be cured or corrected, the concept of conversion therapy remains a particularly charged issue for LGBT advocates. Two states outlaw the practice and legislation is pending in another. But not all the momentum is against reparative therapy. Earlier this month the Texas Republican Party voted to include support for the practice in their party platform. Now a group of advocates and lawmakers are launching a new effort to ban licensed counselors from trying to change a minors sexual orientation through therapy of any kind.

Can we also end Liberal conversion therepy in schools?
You know the kind that uses the mental abuse of ostracism and peer pressure to brainwash kids that humans are bad and evil?
Don’t forget that America is evil, too. Gotta indoctrinate the kiddies about that.
Minors don’t have a choice whether to be treated or not when they have any other condition that is detrimental to their well being. Why should homoism be any different?
Spell check says I made up a new word.
Now we are going to have “Hate Conversion Therapy”.
Now that wouldn't be so bad if they explained the reason why:
Sin - As sons and daughters of Adam we have inherited our sin nature and depravity.
And then taught the only cure:
Christ. As sons and daughters of Christ, we have a new head who has washed us from our sins in His own blood - and called us out, and enabled us, to be Holy. Still stumbling at times in the flesh - but changed nonetheless. New creations in Christ.
Social acceptance, and even encouragement of homosexuality, will never make it less of an “abomination”.
Crushing religious freedom is the goal. Make no mistake.
And these successful therapies are NOTHING like the strawman involuntary therapy that this absurd Time article discusses. They simply can't handle the truth!
Here's a good firsthand example of a young woman with same sex attraction and How she ended it.
The Left supports “Gay Conversion Therapy,” but only one direction.
“Brinton says. To this day, I still have light pain when I shake hands with another male.”
So the therapy worked then! Just imagine the pain he gets when he lets a guy nail his azz or he puffs a peter?
I agree with the author and think Anne Heche and Mrs. Bill DeBlasio should be charged with hate crimes for “converting” themselves from Lasbians in “committed relationships” to Straight married women with kids. Because as the author said “science has proven” it is IMPOSSIBLE to change!
