Utah Governor Gary Herbert has announced that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS or Mormon) will now support the state’s ‘conversion therapy’ ban it had opposed earlier this year.

“Conversion therapy” is a loosely defined term used by media, politicians, and LGBTQ activists to discredit any therapy that claims to modify or change a person’s sexual behavior, i.e., from homosexuality to heterosexuality.

“These ‘therapy ban’ laws effectively kick the clients out of the driver’s seat of their own therapy and put politicians in the driver’s seat, instead. The government shouldn’t be deciding what people should do with their sexuality. Politicians have no business telling people their therapy goals are illegal. Nor do they have any business telling people that they, the politicians, know “who the client really is” and that the client’s legitimate identity must inevitably be ‘gay.'” — Dr. Joseph Nicolosi Jr.

Mormon leaders decided to support the ban after Herbert and Utah’s legislators “carefully tailored” the rule exempting LDS mental health therapists from it.

The newer version of the regulatory rule exempts LDS “clergy members or religious counselors acting in a religious capacity, or…parents or grandparents who happen to be a mental health therapist if they are talking to children or grandchildren.”

“If radical LGBT activists were so concerned about unethical practices in therapy, they would seek to ban therapeutic methods, like any method that uses shame, pain or coercion to try to change someone’s sexuality. … But that’s not what they’re doing. They’re actually outlawing treatment goals … to decrease one’s unwanted same-sex attractions in the privacy of one’s own therapy.” — Dr. Joseph Nicolosi Jr., clinical director, Breakthrough clinic

Although the Mormon Church opposes “same-sex marriage” and teaches that homosexuality is a sin, it denounces conversion therapy as abusive and supports banning the practice.

“The media and politicians have been using the term “conversion therapy” for any therapy that claims to modify sexuality from homosexuality to heterosexuality. But they’re not telling the full story. The term “conversion therapy” is broad, ill-defined, there’s no ethics code, no governing organization. And it’s generally practiced by unlicensed individuals.” — Dr. Joseph Nicolosi Jr., clinical director, Breakthrough clinic

The rule would ban Utah’s non-Mormon therapists from practicing conversion therapy on LGBTQ minors.

“[E]veryone has the right to walk away from sexual practices that don’t work for them. [However,] if those feelings are homosexual in nature, then it’s not OK to walk away. That it’s somehow “anti-gay” to want to walk away from homosexuality and to have help to do so.” — Dr. Joseph Nicolosi Jr., clinical director, Breakthrough clinic

People have the right to leave the homosexual lifestyle for any reason. America’s politicians, media, and LGBT advocates don’t understand or respect that desire for self-determination and individualism, the values that built this nation.

“Many hard-left proponents of identity politics hate the truth that sexuality isn’t set in stone. They approach the topic of sexuality from the political, non-scientific premise that it can’t change, that is to say, if you have these attractions, you are forever part of an oppressed minority group and it’s now your permanent identity, so all you can do is accept it. It’s very hard for them to acknowledge the reality that sexuality is something that can actually change and doesn’t comprise everyone’s core identity.” — Dr. Joseph Nicolosi Jr., clinical director, Breakthrough clinic

LGBTQ advocates, who’ve tried for years to ban what they call conversion therapy in Utah, praised the leaders of the Mormon Church for their crucial support of the ban.

The Church’s support was essential because the state’s governor, its majority of lawmakers, all six members of its congressional delegation, its two U.S. Senators, and nearly two-thirds of its population are Mormon.

“I’m grateful that we have found a way forward that will ban conversion therapy forever in our state.” Gary Herbert, Republican Governor of Utah

Utah’s conversion therapy ban will undergo a 30-day public comment period beginning Dec. 15 and will take effect January 22, 2020.

Therapy bans take away the rights of clients and put politicians in control of the client’s own therapy. They’re often based on the outrageous unscientific notion that biological sex can change but an individual’s thoughts and feelings cannot. Nothing could be further from the truth.” — Dr. Joseph Nicolosi Jr., clinical director, Breakthrough clinic

Based on the American Psychological Association’s false claims that reparative therapy aka conversion therapy is unscientific and harmful to mental health, eighteen states, plus Washington, D.C., have now banned the therapy for minors.

What most people don’t know is the American Psychological Association (APA) stopped relying on science as the foundation for mental health diagnoses in 1973 when homosexual activists began pressuring and attacking APA committee members to change what disorders appear in the organization’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).

Former APA President Reveals How Homosexual Activists Bullied APA into Removing Homosexuality from List of Disorders

By Jerry A. Kane

In 1970 homosexual activists began a program of intimidation aimed at the American Psychiatric Association (APA):

“It was never a medical decision—and that’s why I think the action came so fast…It was a political move…That’s how far we’ve come in ten years. Now we even have the American Psychiatric Association running scared.” Barbara Gittings, Homosexual Activist

The following year, 1971, homosexual activist Dr. Franklin Kameny wrote an open letter to the Psychiatric News threatening the APA with more and even worse disruptions:

“Our presence there was only the beginning of an increasingly intensive campaign by homosexuals to change the approach of psychiatry toward homosexuality or, failing that, to discredit psychiatry.” Franklin Kameny

Members of the “National Gay Task Force” managed to get the addresses of APA members, and with-out identifying themselves, sent out harassing letters to all members demanding they vote to remove homosexuality from the list of mental illnesses in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM), the APA’s classification guide for mental disorders.

No new fact, set of facts, or scientific breakthrough triggered the removal of homosexuality from the list of mental illnesses in the 1974 seventh edition of DSM-II. It was dishonesty and intimidation by homosexual activists that moved 32.7 percent of APA’s total membership to approve the change and normalize homosexuality.

Against the wishes of two-thirds of the organization’s members, homosexuals were “cured” overnight by a vote. A psychiatric disorder that had been classified as a mental illness for 25 years (1948-1973) was suddenly banished by vote, by fiat, but not by valid science or by evaluating the pathology or lack of pathology surrounding homosexuality.

In the youtube clip below, Dr. Nicholas Cummings is interviewed by a representative from the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH). Dr. Cummings is a former President of the American Psychological Association (APA). He introduced the motion to declassify homosexuality as a mental illness to APA’s Council of Representatives.

The X-Men comics and movies are really an allegory about homosexual culture and a stealth way to introduce homosexual propaganda to the general public. The mutant superheroes push a homosexual rights message and are in fact “stand-ins” for homosexual, lesbian, and transgender people.

“Since the comic appeared in the 60s, pop-culture critics have drawn parallels between the mutants’ struggle to gain wider acceptance for being genetically ‘different,’ and the gay community’s struggle for acceptance and recognition.”

Most of the homosexual propaganda in the X-Men movies can be attributed to Bryan Singer, the out-of-the-closet homosexual who directed “X-Men,” “X2: X-Men United,” and “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” and produced of “X-Men First Class.”

“[W]hat better way than in a giant, action, summer event movie! I could think of no better place to spill out one’s own personal problems and foist them onto the world … “—Bryan Singer

The accused pederast director/producer adapted his personal feelings of being alienated and ostracized as a homosexual to the homosexuality/homophobia subtext of the movie series.

“[Y]ou feel kind of alone in the world because you’re separate from everyone else. … A gay kid doesn’t discover he or she is gay until around puberty. And their parents aren’t gay necessarily, and their classmates aren’t, and they feel truly alone in the world and have to find, sometimes never find, a way to live.”— Bryan Singer

The X-Men movies have pushed homosexual issues into the mainstream. The parallels between the mutants’ struggle to gain wider acceptance for being genetically different, and the homosexual community’s struggle for acceptance and recognition are demonstrably obvious.

“Like queers, these mutants discover their ‘difference’ during puberty and struggle to hide it from friends and family. They forge their self-identity when they meet others like them. And they grow up learning to fight the system that shuns and persecutes them.”—Helmi

For the X-Men, mutation is a pressing social issue and telling the world one is a mutant is a serious matter when most people are “mutantphobes.” “X2: X-Men United” presents a coming-out scene, complete with confusion and mutantphobia, when Bobby Drake, aka Iceman, and fellow mutants visit his family.

The “Have you ever tried not being a mutant” scene is the rhetorical equivalent of a homosexual, lesbian, or bisexual teenager’s “coming out” ritual. Like members of the homosexual community, mutants who go public risk family rejection, political and social marginalization, and physical violence.

Singer and the X-Men screen writers are portraying X-Men muntantcy and their struggle for acceptance in society as analogous to the homosexual community’s quest to make homosexuality the moral equivalent of heterosexuality.

In the article “Making Gay Sense of X-Men,” homosexual author William Earnest, writes “Singer and his screenwriters equipped X-Men and X2 with the rhetorical stealth needed to fly below the gaydar of many critics and audience members.”

In a Facebook comment, “X-Men: First Class” screenwriter Zach Stenz posted, “I helped write the movie, and can tell you the gay rights … allegory stuff was put in there on purpose.”

X-Men: First Class, the prequel for “X-Men” and “X2: X-Men United,” continued the subtext messages of mutants as an allegory for the homosexual community. When Hank McCoy’s coworkers find out that he’s a mutant, they ask him why he hid his identity. McCoy tells them, “You didn’t ask; I didn’t tell,” which of course is an obvious reference to the military’s now defunct policy of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.”

To lure openly gay activist actor Ian McKellen to play Magneto, Singer told him that mutants were comparable to struggling homosexuals and that X-Men is really about lesbain, gay, bisexual, and transgender people.

“I think he expected that I was going to consider it a not posh-enough job. I thought he was right. It’s not just a fantasy story. It’s a parable.”—Ian McKellen

McKellen, an open homosexual and co-founder of the LGBT gay activist group Stonewall, admits that when he stays at hotels he tears out pages from the Bible that condemn homosexuality. McKellen told “Details” that a married couple had sent him a package containing 40 pages torn from Bibles attached to a string with instructions to be hung in the bathroom and used for toilet paper.


 

 


In their book, After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90’s, Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen describe a 3-stage plan to further the homosexual agenda and homosexualize America.

The first stage is to desensitize the public:

“The main thing is to talk about gayness until the issue becomes thoroughly tiresome . . . If you can get [straights] to think [homosexuality] is just another thing—meriting no more than a shrug of the shoulders—then your battle for legal and societal rights is virtually won.”

The second stage is to silence all expression and support for dissenting opinion; and the third stage is to convert the public by spreading propaganda via the media to the nation.

To get a better idea of how well the propaganda has been working, the X-Men film series has grossed over $3 billion worldwide, making it the 12th highest-grossing film franchise of all-time, and the sad reality is very few of the millions who saw the films knew that they were being indoctrinated in subversive homosexual propaganda.
