conversion therapy

Tempers flare as Maine House approves ban on conversion therapy
https://www.pressherald.com/2018/04/12/tempers-flare-as-maine-house-appr...

The largely party-line vote raises doubts about the prospects for a bill that would prohibit state-licensed therapists from engaging in conversion therapy treatment that attempts to change the sexual orientation or gender identity of individuals under age 18.

So the gay community wants exclusive access to the children and indoctrinate them all through public school.
sweet....

Opponents’ comments about religion prompted Rep. Craig Hickman, an openly gay evangelical Christian, to share his own painful experiences of the counseling he received as a young man.

There is no such creature. Imaginary? Deceived? hard to tell.

Nine states have enacted similar prohibitions on conversion therapy, and others are debating similar proposals this year.
Agenda to destroy the family spreading like a disease.

Being gay even today can result in harm.
The therapy I suppose has worked in some cases,which appears to an element that few in oppositon want to talk about.

I wonder how many of these counselors etc. have treated a person for suicidal issues and lost them to suicide or for drug dependency
and lost them?

W/out a long and drawn out discussion w/ the associated name calling etc. ,that will occur . I feel this is an issue that just shouldn't be decided in the state house!

For those who haven't been around long and not familiar with past threads ,I wish every day the good friend I lost from his own bad choices ,someone would have tried it.

This therapy is dangerous and causes harm to homosexual predatory activity against children, It should be banned.

There Char, I fixed it for you.

This bill is exclusively aimed at preventing children from receiving care.

Too bad there's no such thing

Too bad there's no such thing as "Neanderthal Conversion Therapy", though the inevitable extinction of the KennyRoberts of this world is pretty close. His great grandchildren will grow up knowing it's okay to be gay. That's gotta hurt.

KR, again you show ignorance.

KR, again you show ignorance. Connecting being gay to harming kids??? This is exactly why we need legislation. I would worry if you had a child who identified with being gay. Certain therapeutic methods that cause harm have been banned in the past. To get a license to offer therapy, we set standards. Conversion therapy does nothing but harm LBGT folks. It shames, and all the research on this therapy says it does not work. You cannot change a person's sexuality through therapy. Can you shame them into living a lie...sure, but often, down the road...it fails. There is nothing wrong with being LBGT. Once we start really understanding this...we will reduce the need for therapy needed for LBGT folks. Time for Converstion Therapy to go...

Try to imagine if there were

Try to imagine if there were fringe groups that were advocating "gay conversion", to try to change abnormally straight kids gay.

Would that sit with you the wrong way?

What if there were "muslim conversion therapy" to try and have your children convert to Islam?

Why don't we just let people decide for themselves instead of going around trying to tell people how to think and act?

"Why don't we let people........" I don't know but maybe you should set example and cease posting your progressive/ liberal stuff so others can decide for themselves.

Are you really drawing a straight line between expressing one's viewpoint and putting your child (who has no say in the matter) through conversion therapy???

No line but your view is the same as the otherr except on the other side.
My main point is this shouldn't be in the legislature as basically both sides will screw it up.
Luckily I do not have children who were faced with the situation.

This is why there has never been a thread on this or related topic that ended well or accomplished anything.

Sure there is. You may not recognize it for what it is, but it's how you and muttsie became what you are.

Does that mean that right

Does that mean that right here on AMG, we have finally found the Missing Link(s)?
I see a Nobel on the horizon for this group.
Maybe they'll give us Barry's.

Its much larger than a missing link. I may well be evidence that conception can occur during exclusively anal sex, and produce a viable offspring of some sort.

Anon Coward.

Anon Coward.
You are unaware of several points. I have no problems with live and let live, but to clarify the statements you made I offer the following;

Please for the love of God let gay people be gay.

What God are we talking about? The act of homosexuality is condemned in the Judaeo-Christian writings as well as by Islam.

to try to change abnormally straight kids gay.

What in the world is an abnormally straight kid?

muslim conversion therapy
You must not get out much. Muslims have had conversion therapy for 1500 years, they lack tolerance with homosexuals as well.

putting your child (who has no say in the matter) through conversion therapy???
of course not. The rabid homosexual community wants parental rights eliminated, they can raise your child for you. If you read another article I have linked, factions of these groups tell children not to discuss these things with their parents.

What we have in reality AC, and why I posted this and the subsequent link about school indoctrination is because using the weight of law to punish anyone who tries to rescue a child from the grasp of the homosexual agenda is the attempt to isolate all children from anything normal, decent, good, and honorable. Predators always resort to cautioning the victim from telling parents, police, anyone who may be able to rescue them. Gee, I kind of have a problem with that.

I am disappointed more

I am disappointed more parents who should be concerned haven't chimed in. There is a group of parents, the movement sweeping the country, to put a stop to this coalition of filth that wants to teach K-12, unfettered by normal restraints, all children about gender confusion, anal sex, condoms and whatever other deviant practices they embrace. Of course secrecy is important, don't tell the adults, and use the weight of the law to keep the children isolated from rescue.
