counseling therapy sessionIt's no surprise that liberal leaders in New York City are champions of homosexual rights, says an attorney.

The New York City Council passed by a vote of 43-2 an ordinance that bars counselors from helping an adult or child with same-gender attractions who want to change.

Matt Barber, co-founder and general counsel of Christian Civil Rights Watch, says the council is dominated by members loyal to the homosexual-rights movement.

Barber, Matt (Liberty Counsel)"They recognize," he says, "that the reality that untold thousands of people have found freedom from the self-destructive homosexual and-cross dressing lifestyles represents a clear and present danger to the myth that change is not possible, that people are somehow born that way."

Barber tells OneNewsNow they are violating the First Amendment and violating client-counselor privacy – and violating a person's freedoms.

"That they would shut that down is nothing short of tyrannical," he complains. "It's politically motivated."

There is little doubt a legal challenge is coming, Barber predicts.
