Do not be naïve: the Federal government wants to reach into every Christian home and open up every child to potential homosexual recruitment.
The mental health industry is not a system of private businesses. It is a potential army for the Federal Government. It gets to decide who is “healthy” and who is not. It gets to decide if parents are fit to raise children or if the children need to be given over to someone else. We are sitting on the edge of a knife. Only a few tweaks and we could have a full blown totalitarian regime that went far beyond the Soviet Union. The pieces are in place.
So it is important to make sure that the mental health profession is kept uniform. One recent movement are mental health professionals who don’t think it is healthy for men to get their erotic pleasure from other men or for women to get that from women. Or perhaps they are even value neutral but realize that a person who is erotically attracted to the same sex might want to be able to live a normal life with biological children and an exclusive relationship to the other parent of those children.
A couple of states have demanded that kind of counseling stop. They can’t prohibit adults from going, but they have prohibited it for children. The same people who think juveniles should have access to abortion and birth control without their parents’ knowledge also think such children should not be free to avail themselves of therapy if the child is seeking to address a dissatisfaction with same-sex erotic attractions.
Such state laws are disgusting but we can accept that some blue states are basically gulags of Liberalism.
But now the Executive Branch of the Federal Government wants to assert itself on this issue. CNS News reports:
President Barack Obama, through a statement posted Wednesday night on the White House website by adviser Valerie Jarrett, backed legislation that would ban parents from having their children counseled not to be what Jarrett called “LGBTQ+”.
“As part of our dedication to protecting America’s youth, this Administration supports efforts to ban the use of conversion therapy for minors,” Jarrett said in the White House statement.
“Conversion therapy generally refers to any practices by mental health providers that seek to change an individual’s sexual orientation or gender identity,” said the statement. “Often, this practice is used on minors, who lack the legal authority to make their own medical and mental health decisions. We share your concern about its potentially devastating effects on the lives of transgender as well as gay, lesbian, bisexual, and queer youth.”
Jarrett conceded in her statement that an act of Congress would be needed to pass a national law that prohibited parents from having their children be counselled to be heterosexual rather than what she called “LGBTQ+.”
“While a national ban would require congressional action, we are hopeful that the clarity of the evidence combined with the actions taken by these states will lead to broader action that this Administration would support,” Jarrett said.
So if you have the misfortune of having a child who ever gets confused on gender or sexuality issues in his or her early years, you had better be very careful. Children who Google what they want to learn are going to fall into a web of deceit designed to convince them that their parents are the enemy. And the Obama Administration wants to put the authority of the Federal Government behind it.
I am not exaggerating. A government that will force other nations to accept homosexual marriage as a basic human right is too blind and arrogant to stop at anything.
If you read the rest of Jarrett’s letter it is clear that these people absolutely believe that all Christians are unfit parents.
Jarrett’s statement was preceded by a quotation from President Barack Obama describing a “young man” who is “wrestling with a secret.”
“Tonight, somewhere in America, a young person, let’s say a young man, will struggle to fall to sleep, wrestling alone with a secret he’s held as long as he can remember. Soon, perhaps, he will decide it’s time to let that secret out. What happens next depends on him, his family, as well as his friends and his teachers and his community. But it also depends on us — on the kind of society we engender, the kind of future we build.”
That’s your President, the commander-in-chief of your military, the leader of the so-called free world calling to any of your children who will listen to him to think their young confusions are a lifelong identity and that you hate them.
