The City of Appleton could become the next Wisconsin city to enact a ban on so-called “conversion therapy” for minors. The Board of Health is scheduled to vote on the proposal next Tuesday. Similar to such ordinances in other communities, this policy makes it illegal for counselors, who in some way take a fee, to tell minors struggling with unwanted same-sex attraction or gender confusion that there is truly real help and real hope and that going down those paths is not God’s best plan for them. What constitutes a fee is unclear legally.
These proposals are aimed at only one group and that is Christians. The Appleton proposal is deceptively called the Youth Mental Health Act. But if city leaders were really concerned about the mental health of the youth in their community, they would not be pushing a proposal that promotes the LGBT agenda and trounces on parents’ rights and religious freedom. This should be a wake-up call to citizens across our state.
