Texas GOP Platform 2014 Recognizes: "the legitimacy and efficacy of counseling, which offers reparative therapy and treatment for those patients seeking healing and wholeness from their homosexual lifestyle."

It's all but impossible to find mainstream news coverage of this issue that doesn't toe the homosexual movement's false propaganda lines on Reparative Therapy.

Don't be surprised if the Texas GOP lands on the Left's list of "hate groups" after their convention this past weekend. In affirming its state platform upholding natural marriage and the sanctity of life, the Lone Star's GOP threw its weight behind a host of key values, including the right of patients to seek "reparative therapy" for unwanted same-sex attractions. In fact, the endorsement was so non-controversial that the issue was never even debated among the 7,000 delegates. Under the new language, Texas Republicans recognize "the legitimacy and efficacy of counseling, which offers reparative therapy and treatment for those patients seeking healing and wholeness from their homosexual lifestyle."

Jonathan Saenz, a good friend to FRC and head of Texas Values, thinks the plank is a no-brainer. "The platform reflects what the people in the Republican Party have asked for, and that should be no surprise: family values, protection of marriage between one man and one woman, and everything that goes along with that." The New Jersey GOP could stand to learn a thing or two from Texas, after Governor Chris Christie (R) not only refused to support reparative therapy but signed a law banning it across the state. GOP moderates complain that conservatives are trying to keep the party in the past. But their reaction and that of liberals across the country proves once again that "choice" is only respected when that choice is to advance homosexuality.

I fully endorse the plank in the Texas GOP Platform for 2014 that recognizes "the legitimacy and efficacy of counseling, which offers reparative therapy and treatment for those patients seeking healing and wholeness from their homosexual lifestyle."

Do not be fooled by all the scaremongering of the homosexualists concerning Reparative Therapy. Those homosexualists dredge up ancient stories that have no place in the current debate. Reparative Therapy certainly is no more dangerous than the vast majority of therapies endorsed and advocated by both the American Psychological Association and American Psychiatric Association. It's why so many states have rejected going down the wrongheaded and wrong-hearted path chosen by California and New Jersey.

We are still looking forward to the bans in California and New Jersey on Reparative Therapy being pronounced unconstitutional by the US Supreme Court. It should rule that way. Whether it will is, however, certainly debatable. They issue a great many wrong decisions.

Meanwhile, many people will continue to greatly benefit from Reparative Therapy practiced correctly.
