Ban on gay 'conversion' therapy to be challenged

Oct 2, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Salinas Californian

Gay rights advocates are making plans to get other states to join California in banning psychotherapy aimed at making gay teenagers straight, even as opponents prepared Monday to sue to overturn the first law in the nation to take aim at the practice.

Someone should come out with a conversion therapy that turns religious people into normal people.

Then, maybe then, the world would be a better place in which to live.

And those who are comfortable with their own sexuality, not force their "morality" on others because they are so unsure of their own, and those who just don't give a shit how others choose to live their lives.

Is that the reason? because they are unsure of their own. You write a little confusing, but again, what is normal?

Anyone that doesn't try to change other peoples lives because of some fantasy (religion) they happen to believe in. Now that you mention it, yes, atheists would qualify.

Let's change the title to be more correct, "Ban on child abuse to be challenged".

These guys aren't really bright. Even the dumbest maggot knows that the light of day is not their friend. These maggots want to shine a court spotlight on themselves. They learned nothing from their Prop 8 embarrassment.

Like the Chick Fil A CEO? He was minding his business and "happy people" attacked him and his business. Why? Are you saying "happy people" aren't normal?

So it's okay for anyone to try to change other peoples lives as long as it's not religion related? Are you worried that someone might figure out being gay is a sex cult?

Such a fascinating concept, a religious right to psychologically torture possibly non-heterosexual youths into faux heterosexuality, at their parents request, of course. Jesus, what the f*ck is wrong with some of your Christians?

Psychotherapy is a general term referring to therapeutic interaction or treatment contracted between a trained professional and a client, patient, family, couple,...Everyone should be given the chance to heal. It's worth a try to solve the sex cult problem.

In adults, so-called "reparative" and "conversion" therapies, have been proved to be all but completely ineffective (while there are those who claim to be "formerly homosexual", they represent an incredibly insignificant percentage of those who have undergone such therapies and their claims have never really been put to any sort of a test), has no proof whatsoever of long term effectiveness (by some estimates, there are probably more ex-ex-gays than those claiming to be ex-gay) and has proved to be psychologically, emotionally and even spiritually damaging to the vast majority of those for whom these therapies WILL fail and you want to allow it to be done to kids, just because you get off on fantasizing that being gay means you're joining a freaking sex cult. Do your future kids a favor, get a vasectomy.

I agree, I already have normal kids. Glad they are not in the cult. You should stop trying to educate others, leave people alone.
