definitely thankful that they banned minors from having to go through that. Having a disclaimer probably won't do much though; they're already there. It's like putting the cancer disclaimers on cigarettes.

Idiot, it's proven it does not work does more harm to the individual and one of the key authors of this trashed his whole theory and apologized to the gay community. You big mouth bible thumpers don't have a leg to stand on never did and never will.

She may be religious, but she's actually on our side. She's saying she supports this bill, and would like to see more states take the same steps to protect children from the abuse of these false "therapies".

Gay Mom, let me know if I've represented you inaccurately.

They [the Government] do not have enough time and resources, here in California they are after street corner lemonaide stands and people who sell raw milk so getting around to protecting children from Catholic School will have to wait for the next tax hike.

No, you are exactly right. I am a fierce advocate for children!!! i was a special education teacher for 34 years, and fought for eveything I could get for my kids. I wouldn't wish this horror on my worst enemy.

Stop teaching kids in school that gay is normal, then there wouldn't be as much need for therapy.

I too believe in things like the Biosphere in which humanity did arise in. With out the sun and the moon and the biosphere life would be IMPOSSIBLE as we know it today. And no nautral law of physics was ever broken for all of this wonder to take place.

The possibility for human life to arise in different biospheres was right there when the first gases began to ignite, all according to law, what we call "the big bang".

There is no God, the Universe is doing something. Our ancient ancestors seem to know more about it than we do today. To me it seems as if they lived their lives participating in it, listening. The whole history of humanity is in each one of us. We are so close to all the secrets and mysteries of life.

You would have us lie to our gay children and tell them because some pew warming bigots believe in a bronz aged book of silly stories that they are not normal?

That is pretty sick, in fact it is an abomination. Being Gay is normal, even if there was only one gay person in America the Government has the responsibility to protect his/her rights against hypocritic bigots like yourself.

But there are millions of gay people and millions more who engage in gay sex so it doesn't get any more normal than that. What isn't normal is for a "simple minded" Bible believer like you to visit a gay site and spread your hate and bigotry.

A "Reverend" that preaches that God does not exist is a lemon.
