NYC becomes Big Brother over counseling topics

counseling therapy sessionNew York City is making a political football out of the mental health profession.

According to Matt Barber, co-founder and general counsel of Civil Rights Watch, the New York City Council is a group of “homo-fascist leftists” who are pushing their new orthodoxy and essentially demanding you must agree with their beliefs about same-sex attraction. 

When the law goes into effect on April 30, psychologists, life coaches, or anyone else who provides the counseling for a fee will be prohibited.

Barber is convinced a lawsuit will be filed to challenge the ordinance titled the New York City Counselor Coercion Law.

“I believe it will be ruled unconstitutional,” says Barber, “but in the meantime, it's there for all to see. This is how the left operates. If you disagree they will shut you down – shut down all dissent under penalty of law, with threats of major fines and potentially even jail time.”

According to Barber, the ordinance takes no consideration for rights protected by the Constitution, including the right of the individual to seek counseling and the right of the mental health professional to provide a patient’s sought after therapy.
