“It’s unbelievable that the Supreme Court would sit on the sidelines while there’s this conflict that’s taking place between the courts of appeal over this major issue. And when this particular situation presents an issue of national, significant, public importance, the Supreme Court should make sure that ideology doesn’t guide its decisions – and unfortunately I think sometimes that’s what we see with this high court. The only other alternative that parents have is to move out of those states or to seek counsel from an unlicensed provider. But that’s not an alternative because they can’t move, number one – and two, they want to go to an expert who’s trained in this area. Parents should never have to face that kind of a choice.” – Mat Staver, who yesterday lost his sixth consecutive attempt to overturn a state ban on “ex-gay” torture.
