What does the Government mean by ‘conversion therapy’?
The Government wants to ban it but hasn't really said what 'it' is. In reality, ‘conversion therapy’ is a wide umbrella term chosen by LGBT campaigners. It covers grotesque illegal assaults such as 'corrective rape' and abusive quack medical practices like electric shock 'therapy'.
They want to BAN...
...praying with friends about unwanted feelings of same-sex attraction.
...church ministers from urging people to repent of sexual sin.
...inviting gay people to follow the Bible's teaching on celibacy and marriage.
...Sunday schools and youth groups from advocating the Christian sexual ethic.
...discouraging a child from taking cross-sex hormones.
...de-transitioners from seeking help.
