Coat Hangers, Electric Shock and Other Leftist Myths
Linda Harvey, WND.com
A consumer fraud complaint has been filed with the Federal Trade Commission by a consortium of counselors and physicians against the deceptive practices of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and others.
Yet the same old, same old lie about counseling for unwanted same sex attractions was repeated in a recent article by Reuters. Here it is:
“Gay conversion therapy methods range from counseling, hypnosis and dating-skill training to aversive techniques that induce pain or electric shocks in response to same-sex erotic images, according to California officials…”
So is Reuters correct? Is electric shock or pain-inducing therapy commonly used on teens to “make them straight”?
NO. This claim is a fraud right out of Propaganda 101. It is doubtful even one appropriately-licensed counselor could be identified doing such therapy.
Yet once again, the fake news media peddles the lies of “LGBTQ” advocates.
The Reuters article gleefully reported the latest “victory” in this campaign. The U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear the appeal of a discriminatory California law banning counseling for teens who want to leave homosexual feelings behind. The high court has turned down other similar cases.
And once again, America’s youth are betrayed. Many of these teens were molested by predatory adults or older peers, causing sexual confusion that most likely would have been absent otherwise.
Such incidents are nonconsensual and often meet the legal requirement for statutory rape.
But California is cool with child sexual exploitation. It permeates their schools. Their streets embrace “pride” events with school clubs marching, even though proud pedophilia advocates are sometimes parade leaders ( Harry Hay, Larry Brinkin).
California even mandates an adult predator celebration day in public schools—Harvey Milk Day -- on May 22 each year.
The National Task Force on Therapy Equality filed the FTC complaint because they are fed up with the fascist tactics of HRC and SPLC. The horror of “electric shock” fits the left’s prejudices about conservatives and Christians, so when unverified “testimony” is given for bills banning such therapy, and salacious details are offered about forced conversion camps and such, Democrats nod in agreement: “We knew it all along.”
For example, a 2014 bill to ban sexual orientation change therapy proposed by Democrats in the state of Washington alleged that ice baths and shock therapy were being used, although the state’s department of health had never received any complaint along these lines.
Happy Mother's Day!
Motherhood is precious and essential.
To all the mothers, grandmothers, future mothers and children out there, happy Mother's Day!
Where would we be without mothers?
In this era where abortion defenders are increasingly desperate, we need to stand strong for the beauty, the power, the God-design of motherhood. It's only a political statement because some incredibly blind people try to oppose this essential human role.
Motherhood will win because goodness and truth are undeniable.
We love all our readers and donors who are mothers or who love mothers! Let's keep honoring and preserving the value of life in the womb and the sacrifice of those who bear and/or raise children.
I hope you all have a wonderful, well-deserved special Mother's Day!
