Dutch court strikes down ban on gay conversion therapy | Eastern North Carolina Now

The Council of State, a high level court that must approve the Constitutionality of all enacted legislation in the Netherlands has struck down a law banning gay conversion therapy.  They reasoned that such a ban is an attack on religious liberty since most gay conversion therapy was carried out by religious groups.

You wokesters are so into putting people into categories, you cannot accept that people can change. Some drunks can dhange their bebavior theough working with AA. Some homosexuals can change their behavior by working with therapy that addresses that. Why not allow them to do so? The subject article was about the Dutch courts standing up for allowing this therapy to be available. Why are you opposed to that? Do you want to try to force homosexuals to stay in the category that has been set up for them by the woke?

Of course, homosexuality is a behavior, just like alcoholism, bestiality, bigamy, or pedophilia. They are not an ethnic group, although the woke seem to think they are.

My other point is what should be prohibited is the mutilation of children in sex change surgeries. Children who are not even old enough under state law to consent to sexual intercourse or to get a tattoo are being encouraged to allow their bodies to be mutilated.

As long as you see sexuality as strictly a behavior Bubba, you will be disappointed. A gay person can no more change their sexuality than you can. One can commit suicide over it, become celibate, maybe live a tortured life in the closet or accept who you are and live your best life. Your choice. Why do you care? Why 14 posts on this topic?

It is like drunks, Bobby. Some are content to remain drunks and that is their right, but others want to straighten themselves out and go to attend AA sessions to help do that. It is the same with homosexuals. Some want to straighten themselves out and should have the right to do so. Homosexual activists banning these programs would be like liquor companies banning AA.

Beleive it or not, Bobby, but there are people who do not want to go through life that way and want to try to fix their problem. They should have the opportunity to do so. I know your Gaystapo friends disapprove.

That's BS, Bobby. Those who enter gay conversion therapy do so voluntarily to get the homosexual monkey off of their back. From what I have read about it, it is all discussion and reasoning, not heavy duty drugs or surgery like the brutal "transgender" conversions.

Unfortunately too many children are confronted involuntarily with heterosexual conversion therapy to try to make them homosexual. It is called today's public school. Or if they are not being groomed to be homosexual, it is to be "transgender" and it is sick.

Bubba, imagine if someone tried to convert you into a homosexual. It's the exact same thing.

The hypocrites on the left want to ban gay conversion therepy which only involves talking and reasoning with patients, but they want to legalize transgender surgery on children that will permanently mutilate and sterilize them through surgery and heavy duty drugs. They have it ass backwards.
