Liberty Counsel Files Brief at Appeals Court Against California’s Ban on Change Therapy
Today, Liberty Counsel filed its Opening Brief at the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals against the California ban on change therapy (SB 1172), which would ban any counseling to minors seeking to diminish or eliminate unwanted same-sex sexual attractions, behavior or identity. On December 21, 2012, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in Pickup v. Brown granted Liberty Counsel's Emergency Motion to temporarily block the law from going into effect on January 1, 2013, as previously scheduled.
The court of appeals blocked the law from going into effect and also set an expedited briefing schedule under which Liberty Counsel filed its Opening Brief today. The State of California will have to file its brief by January 30, 2013. After that time, Liberty Counsel will file its Reply Brief and then oral argument will be scheduled. In the meantime, SB 1172 will remain blocked by the order of the court of appeals.
Please continue to pray that the Lord moves on the hearts of the judges in this case, and the law is struck down.

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.
