If you read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B ... you learn that the science is with those that say there is a biological basis to homosexuality.

Governor Brown is not alone in considering conversion therapy quack therapy.

All reputable mental health organizations agree with him. Just go to there websites and look.

Who disagrees?

Right Wing Christian hate groups like the Liberty Council, and pseudo scientific groups of small membership like NARTH that hide their religious agenda behind quack theories that have been shown to be ineffective.

So children need to be protected from anyone who would harm them with this, just as we would not allow an operation of female circumcision on a child if the parent was requesting it to follow a religious tradition.

Christians and others that believe that homosexuality is sinful can continue to teach their children their view of the Bible or their traditions and many children will go along with their ideas, then when they are adult they can decide for themselves.

All the peer-reviewed scientific studies show and prove that adult homosexuals are predisposed to molest children of their same sex.

That's a load of bullshit and you're spreading lies. Molestation and rape is about power, not sex or attraction. Kerry Sandusky is heterosexual. There are no studies that say what you say, and if there are, reference them from an unaffiliated, non religious scientific group please.

Oh honey, you wonder why I keep referring you to free and sliding scale mental health clinics. It's statements like this, which are so maliciously factually void that only some form of pathology could explain you making them. Seek help.

Doris dear, the only thing "homosexual" about Sandusky was his fetish for boys around the age of puberty. The man had continuous access to boys old enough to consent and even young men, but not even a whiff of impropriety, let alone criminal behavior. He got away with it because in this he said, he said situation, other than those who didn't do the right thing when they heard that this was going on, there was no proof that he was anything but heterosexual and really good with your kids. You rant about that omnipresent gay bogeyman of yours, but it's the straight ones who you should be keeping an eye out for, even around your boys.

My parents sent me to one of these places in Lancaster. It was like a Kibbutz but with Mennonites or Amish running it. I got blisters on my hands and feed.

Cloris; you still can't tell the difference between sexual orientation and pedophilia; and at YOUR age!!! Shame on you
.
Gay guys are born with the same sexual orientation YOU were born with; attracted to men
.
Are you trying to tell us you go for a little something extra we don't know about?
