Counseling Will Mandate LGBT & Q Worldview

Mar 5, 2021

Would you believe us if we said the government is not just pushing unhealthy behaviors but is going much further? It is seeking to lie to those who want help by telling them change is not possible! And now the federal government is trying to make it illegal for anyone to speak the truth!

The so-called “Equality Act” is the most serious threat to our freedom today. In its quest to mandate LGBT & Q and abortion, it will BAN LIFESAVING COUNSELING FOR ALL AGES. Send an urgent fax to tell the Senate to VOTE NO on the "EQUALITY ACT.” —Your Faith & Liberty team

Listen to the words of this firsthand testimony:

“I am a former lesbian who went through SOCE [sexual orientation change efforts] counseling, and my life is proof that SOCE counseling can and does work for individuals struggling with unwanted same-sex attractions, behaviors or identity. … I was sexually abused as a child and experienced tremendous trauma from that abuse and from the dysfunctional family.

“At the tender age of 16, I was already involved in a same-sex relationship. ... My therapist was adamant that I was a lesbian, that I was born a lesbian, that I would always be a lesbian and that I should just accept and embrace it because there was nothing that I could do about it.

“When I was 24, the woman who was my girlfriend at the time told me that she had heard of this thing called SOCE counseling and that she wanted to start trying it. This was the first time in my life that I had ever heard anyone even mention that change was possible. ... After hearing from my former lover, of all people, I knew that change was possible and wanted to see if I could succeed in changing.

“I have been changed and reformed from that lifestyle for 23 years now.”

But the “Equality Act” would erase the hope and help that this woman found. It would make it illegal for a professional counselor, or even a church, to spread hope and freedom from this lifestyle.

This bill turns people seeking help and those able to provide lifesaving hope into lawbreakers. It even prevents them from sharing their own experiences of change. That's why we’re asking you to act now by faxing the Senate to oppose this outrageous bill.

 

Listen to the words of one young man who testified under oath about his own struggle:

“When I was 5 years old, I was sexually molested by a 16-year-old high school boy who was also my neighbor. … I had traumatic experiences in perceiving and feeling that I was not really a male child. ...

“I found myself sexually attracted to men because of my earlier abuse … For all these years, I carried a feeling of immense and crushing shame for my same-sex attractions.”

He said he “became clinically depressed twice, dealt with tremendous anxiety, experienced obsessive-compulsive disorder and knew in my heart that I was very confused about my sexual orientation and gender identity. In the latter years of this 20-year period, I found a course of treatment that truly helped me resolve the issues I had been experiencing.”

But the counseling that saved this man’s life will be banned by the “Equality Act.” Tell the Senate to VOTE NO on the "Equality Act"! Select here.

Counseling is a lot like a GPS map system. You tell the counselor where you want to go, and the counselor helps you reach that destination. But the “Equality Act” attempts to ban one viewpoint of counseling—the viewpoint that people do not have to be chained to their unwanted desires, behaviors or confusion. In fact, it will mandate that any counsel be only that which promotes LGBT and Q.

Years of study show that 85% of young people who experience gender confusion resolve naturally without any intervention at all. They simply grow out of it. But the dictatorial “Equality Act” seeks to cement gender confusion, and no one—not even the person seeking counsel—can object.

The legal battles that have been achieved against change counsel bans will be erased if HR 5 becomes law. At Faith & Liberty, our team members often work directly with these counselors and their clients. Our hearts break to think this lifesaving counsel could be banned—for everyone, including pastors and church counselors. Rush your urgent fax to the Senate to stop the "Equality Act."
