Judges strike down bans on LGBTQ ’conversion therapy’

A federal appeals court blocked bans on LGBTQ ’conversion therapy’ for minors on Friday. The decision cast skepticism on the evidence suggesting ’conversion therapy’ substantially increases young people’s risk of depression and suicide. The judges ruled the government lacks a compelling interest in protecting minors from the practice.

Being gay means that these children are sexually attracted to members of the same-sex...frankly if they are under 12 years old they really shouldn't be homosexual or heterosexual yet. A child usually doesn't know what sex is until their pre-teen years, nevermind figuring out what their sexual preferences are yet.

Those bans equate religious counseling as conversion therapy. It harms religious freedom.

They are not Trump's judges. They were appointed under his presidency but ultimately they make their own rulings.

A preacher pointed out to me there is no punishment in the bible for being gay, there is for adultery. It seems to me the religious want to punish being gay and give a pass on the adultery.

It's LGBTPQ. The P is silent. Those who argue "sexual attraction is innate and therefore acting on that attraction is a civil right" are essentially justifying pedophilia, polygamy, beastiality, or any other perverse sexual attraction. Either the people have the authority to regulate sexual behavior, or they don't.

Conversion therapy has been completely discredited. The only thing it does is hurt minors who had the misfortune to be born into intolerant families. These judges were appointed by trump, and have shown their inability to follow majority scientific consensus in favor of pushing an extremist minority religious view.

Oh come on, gender and sex are two different things but at this time i think it's hard to differenciate thanks to 'progressiveness'. Well, you can boo me when these people can successfully remove or add y chromosome on their bodies. I don't have problem with gays because they are what they are but those guys that think they are girls like those trans that join pageants exclusively for women and persuade people that it's cool for the sake of political correctness, they are the problem.

Serious ethics question, not trying to being political; "If someone is gay, but genuinely wants to be straight, is it ethical to try and help them? " I've been genuinely wondering this since McKrae Game, the founder of a South Carolina-based conversion therapy ministry Hope for Wholeness, came out as gay himself. Obviously low success rates and probability of harm makes existing methods lean towards unethical. But what if there a method that was as safe to use as the methods used by trans-people to change their bodies?

Thank goodness TST is taking advantage of these religious laws to undo Christianity’s hold on the American government.

At the first glance, I assumed this distress was over a ban to prevent people from converting youth to being LGBT, etc.

The articles chosen do not present both sides of the argument, but are both on the same side, stating but not quoting 'evidence', let alone from sources without a similar polemic. This is the orioles with MSM. We expect a more balanced presentation from you.

"Conversion Therapy" is fighting fire with fire. The leftist media teaches kids they can be sexually deviant without a price. CT explains the price and helps them to reverse the indoctrination.

Well that IS the progressive thing to do. After all, gender is fluid and so is sexuality. Since you can choose to be a cis female one day and a gay male the next day, then obviously conversion of sexuality is also possible. Surprising how left wing these judges are!
