Should Counselors Have the Freedom to Counsel with “Conversion” Therapy?

WND has an article on Liberty Counsel arguing before the U.S. Supreme Court that counselors should have the freedom to talk to clients about homosexuality or sexual identity, or any other matter, quite frankly. Liberty Counsel is challenging a New Jersey law that restricts such freedom of speech rights of counselors, specifically regarding ““unwanted same-sex attractions, behaviors or identity.”

I don’t know what’s wrong with the anti-free speech fascists on the left these days. They seem to have an agenda in the area of sexuality, which celebrates homosexuality, perversions and deviancy, and these days is quite anti-male, anti-heterosexual, and anti-biologically correct gender identity.

The activists and extremists don’t even want to allow others to discuss issues, or allow someone who might be insecure with his sexuality or gender identity to talk about it with a counselor. The activists in fact want to jail such counselors, just like the climate fanatics want to jail “deniers.”

It used to be that homosexual activists would chant, “Silence equals death.” That was one of their main slogans, during the 1980s. My, how things have changed.

Also recently, in New Hampshire, the “Live Free Or Die” state, by the way, Republican Gov. Chris Sununu signed a bill into law not only for transgender “civil rights,” but banning “conversion therapy” for transgender or sexual orientation. This means that, according to the law, “‘conversion therapy’ means practices or treatments that seek to change an individual’s sexual orientation or gender identity, including efforts to change behaviors or gender expressions or to eliminate or reduce sexual or romantic attractions or feelings toward individuals of the same gender.”

New Hampshire, the “Live Free Or Die” state. Except that if a client in therapy has “transgender” like feelings or homosexual attractions but doesn’t think that’s right or that’s not who he really is and wants to identify with his biological gender or wants to overcome same-sex attractions, he cannot do that in New Hampshire because such therapy is against the law.

There are many, many activists now who, in their zeal promoting “transgender” or homosexuality, want to now outlaw speech, merely discussing someone’s personal situation in which he wants help, and in which he does not accept certain attractions. And so far it seems the extremists are winning this fight, if they can get a Republican governor in New Hampshire to sign such a bill into law.

I’m sure the activists are in some way going to try to tie “conversion therapy” speech with bullying speech as well as with violence against transgenders and homosexuals. Yes, activists these days are that dishonest now.

One talk radio host I heard today was discussing a case regarding transgender issues, and a caller stated that her boyfriend’s 21-year-old sister has a 5-year-old son who the caller considers female and puts nail polish on him, and dresses, etc. The host was saying that’s child abuse, and I agree in some way with that, it’s psychological abuse. But the host was saying he would send Child Protective Services (CPS) after the 21-year-old mother. However, that same host has been very anti-CPS in the past, so I think he’s not thinking that through.

I wouldn’t send after ANYONE the same CPS that gets involved in child sex trafficking as well as promoting abusive homes for foster kids. Government CPS is notorious for those kinds of criminal activities against kids.

Anyway, regardless of the U.S. Supreme Court’s rarely getting anything right, I nevertheless wish Liberty Counsel a lot of luck in challenging the anti-free speech counseling laws.
