I think that I should cease filling up the Forum with news related to the recent law banning "reparative therapy" in California. This topic will remain quite heated for months to come --- at least through the upcoming elections --- and you should have no difficulty in following the developments on your own.
But please don't lose track of the fact that the attacks on this law will become increasingly fierce, divisive, and exceedingly manipulative!
Here is the final post from me on the topic: I'm posting this because (1) the ABC video at top is quite worthwhile, and (2) a college student (Aaron Blitzer) is challenging the law (himself hoping to become a reparative therapist) by saying he's been "cured" of being gay through successful "reparative therapy" and if the law is allowed to remain his future as a therapist will be uncertain...
There are other news sources (not linked below) that characterize the student as being Christian... an interesting juxtaposition!
Frankly, I suspect a "plant"... but that's how you can expect this story to evolve... :(
