“The minors we represent do not want to act on same-sex attractions, nor do they want to engage in such behavior. They are greatly benefiting from this counseling. Their grades have gone up, their self-esteem has improved, and their relationships at home are much improved. Legislators and judges in the state of California have essentially barged into the private therapy rooms of victimized young people and told them that their confusion, caused by the likes of a Jerry Sandusky abuser, is normal and they should pursue their unwanted and dangerous same-sex sexual attractions and behavior, regardless of whether those minors desire their religious beliefs to trump their unwanted attractions.” – Mat Staver, wallowing in the sadz via press release from the Liberty Counsel, who today lost their appeal to block “ex-gay” torture in California. Staver says that Liberty Counsel will appeal the case to the full Ninth Circuit or to the US Supreme Court.
