Obama Takes Aim at Therapy for Unwanted Same-Sex Attractions
President Obama is broadening his attack on biblical sexuality. In a statement this week, the president reiterated his stand on opening bathrooms to all sexes and even went further by blasting therapy efforts to help those with unwanted same-sex attractions.
“My administration is striving to better understand the needs of LGBT adults and to provide affordable, welcoming, and supportive housing to aging LGBT Americans,” the president wrote in his Presidential Proclamation for LGBT Pride Month, a declaration that has become an annual tradition. “It is also why we oppose subjecting minors to the harmful practice of conversion therapy*
, and why we are continuing to promote equality and foster safe and supportive learning environments for all students.”
Jeff Johnston with Focus on the Family says “conversion therapy,” as it has been dubbed by LGBT activists, is nothing more than traditional counseling methods used to help minors (and others) who seek treatment in order to live out their faith.
“Suppose there’s a teenage Christian boy in your family or church who’s struggling with homosexual sin – looking at gay pornography or involved in a sexual relationship. He’s conflicted, because he loves God and wants to follow Him, but he’s caught in sin. A Christian therapist should be allowed to help that boy live according to his faith.”http://familypolicyalliance.com/issues/2016/06/02/obama-takes-aim-reparative-therapy/(* As "harmful" as contracting AIDS & dying or committing suicide due to the cognitive dissonance brought about by the aberrant lifestyle?
