You know all those wonderful Conservative parents who proceed to abandon, kick out, or cut off their children for any reason (including, but not limited to a child’s sexuality)?
Well here we go:

“But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.”
1 Timothy 5:8 (NKJV)

Are you a survivor of sexual orientation change efforts (SOCE)—sometimes called “reparative therapy” or “ex-gay therapy”—at the hands of a medical or mental health provider? Equality California is working in the legislature to put an end to the use of these “therapy” tactics that have no sound scientific basis and that cause lifelong damage to LGBT people subjected to them. This bill faces steep opposition in the legislature and we need survivors to share their stories to help advance this important legislation. We may follow up with you to ask you to share your story with legislators, media or LGBT equality activists. 
Senate Bill 1172 would ban all sexual orientation change efforts with respect to minors, regardless of a parent’s willingness or desire to authorize such “treatments.” For adults, the bill would prohibit psychotherapists from engaging in sexual orientation change efforts without first disclosing the fact that homosexuality is not a form of mental illness, that SOCE is opposed by all major medical and psychological organizations and that SOCE carries significant risk of harm to the patient. The practitioner must then obtain the patient’s informed consent.

Taking Down “Ex-Gay” Ministries

GCI succeeded in lobbying for SB 1172, which is a bill that would outlaw the ability of state-licensed psychiatrists to practice “Reparative Therapy" on minors. Now we must now lobby for both Federal legislation and a stronger rejection of the mistreatment of LGBT persons within churches.

Like (maybe reblog??) this if you are dedicating to helping Gay Christian with both those goals!

CALIFORNIANS! We are one of the most enlightened places in the United States, but we somehow still allow tolerance for pseudo-science and cult groups that continues to commit permanent damage on it’s victims. State Senator Christine Kehoe has responded to my letter stating that she will urge the California LGBT Senate Caucus to take up legislation to further restrict and prosecute these rogue groups in our next Session (in 2013)!

Let’s go Christians! Let’s go Californians! Stand up for what is right! We will win this!!

Even if you are not a Californian, please reblog! It wont ruin your blog
