Get Out Of Here: Five Christian Pastors In Illinois Are Challenging A State Law Banning ‘Conversion Therapy’ For Gay Youth!
Reader, what do you think? Under a new law that went into effect in January were pastors could be held liable for consumer fraud under a section of a new law that says “no person or entity” may advertise or practice conversion therapy that “represents homosexuality as a mental disease, disorder or illness.” Five Christian pastors in Illinois are calling for a religious exemption to the law banning therapy for youth--even though data show it's ineffective and likely harmful. “These pastors teach that homosexual conduct is contrary to God’s purpose for humanity and a disorder of God’s creation which can be resisted or overcome by those who seek to be faithful to God and His Word. This is what they say to those who seek their counsel — including minors,” according to the lawsuit, posted online by the law firm representing the pastors.
