It’s high time for a ban. Conversion therapy is not only extremely harmful, but also another hurdle for LGBTQI+ equality and acceptance.
I’m calling on the Government to not only ban the therapy, but to ban all anti-gay messages in churches and organised religions to reduce the high number of rainbow youth attempting suicide because they are told they must change something they simply can’t.
So the call to ban conversion therapy is being pushed by some to go further and also ban what priests can say in church.
Why not go further and have the Government approve all religious teachings to make sure they conform.
