This Friday, November 22. the House of Commons will vote on the Counsellors and Psychotherapists (Regulation) Bill at its second reading. The bill aims to ban therapists from offering assistance to people who want to reduce unwanted homosexual feelings and behaviours.
It would be a ban on the human right of people to ask for help if they wish to do so. It is based on the absolute insistence of the homosexual lobby - without any scientific proof - that a homosexual has the condition from birth and it cannot be changed. It flies in the face of the evidence of the many people who have repented of a homosexual lifestyle and have been set free from it.
Many homosexuals appear angry against non-homosexuals. Their worst anger seems to be reserved for ex-homosexuals.
People who support the bill claim that practitioners of reparative therapy are motivated by homophobia and do not advance the welfare of the individual. They claim such therapy can cause harm.
People who oppose the bill say reparative therapy is about helping people who voluntarily seek change in sexual preference and expression, and not about coercing people or forcing them to change against their will. Banning therapy would deny them the right to seek treatment and force them to accept a sexual identity they were unhappy with.
