Liberty Counsel Files Suit Today Challenging California’s Ban on Change Therapy
Today, Liberty Counsel filed suit in federal court challenging the new law (SB 1172) that bans any counseling to diminish, eliminate, or manage same-sex sexual attractions. Liberty Counsel represents several parents and their children who are receiving and benefiting from such counseling, several licensed counselors, the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH), and the American Association for Christian Counselors (AACC), an organization with about 50,000 professional counseling members.
This law places the state between the client and the counselor. It intrudes on a client’s fundamental right of self-determination to seek counseling that aligns with his or her religious and moral values. This law forces clients to receive and counselors to provide only one viewpoint on the subject of same-sex attractions, even when the client does not want to act on those attractions. This law even forbids counselors from referring clients to someone of their choice. For the state to assume that it knows best what kind of counseling individuals should receive is the height of hubris and ignorance.
This law is an astounding violation of the right to free speech and religious liberty. Clients have the right to receive information that aligns with their values, and counselors have the right and the duty to provide information to help the clients in pursuit of their right to self-determination.

Reclaiming a Culture of Innocence
As our nation promotes promiscuity as normal and abortion as a solution, we must arm ourselves with knowledge of how our society has plunged to this moral level. In “Sexual Sabotage,” Dr. Judith Reisman exposes the fraud and abuse surrounding Alfred Kinsey’s so-called studies. During World War II and the decades that followed, Kinsey and his Indiana cohorts sabotaged our nation by entering our libraries and schools as “sex educators,” ridiculing marriage, fidelity, and chastity. Uncovering the treacherous acts of Kinsey and others, Dr. Reisman unveils critical insights as to where our country went wrong and how we can and must repudiate the soul-and-body-destroying sexual anarchy Kinsey gave us in the name of “liberation.” In so doing, she says, we will reclaim the kind of noble moral character for our country - and ourselves - that is truly liberating.
