A legal group is calling attempts to ban counseling for minors struggling with same-sex attractions shows the goal of gay activists for “complete dominance." 

With the recent passage of laws that ban gay-to-straight therapy for minors in New Jersey and California, Liberty Counsel is warning those who cherish freedom must understand the motive behind homosexual activism.

Staver, Mat (Liberty Counsel)Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel says the ban on gay-conversion therapy is a threat to the freedoms of both children and parents who have a right to obtain this kind of therapy.

"It has nothing to do with real people who are actually benefiting, have benefited from this counseling. This is just a politically motivated agenda,” Staver tells OneNewsNow.

He goes onto call the issue a “zero-sum game” in which homosexual rights “trump everything else,” including religious freedom and the First Amendment.

“It distorts every other freedom,” he says.

Liberty Counsel called the bill an "intrustion into the counselor-client relationship and into the rights of parents."

The coalition of homosexual activists is a “threat to our freedom,” Staver claims.

“The agenda is ultimately not tolerance, not co-existance, but absolute dominance, and not only dominance, but forcing people to affirm homosexuality as normal,” he says.

The California Supreme Court recently upheld the state's ban on gay-conversion therapy. Liberty Counsel plans to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene.
