S12E33 Bad Therapy (8/13/19)

Faith & Society:
The “Conversion Therapy” Ban

Is there such a thing in religion as bad therapy? And, if so… Should it be banned by the government? On this Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys will discuss faith, conversion therapy, and whether or not it should be banned. Across the country groups have been working to get the government to ban a practice among some therapists known as “conversion therapy.” It’s a method used by some counselors, primarily from a fundamentalist Christian background, to attempt to convert primarily lesbian, gay, and transgender persons from their sexual orientation or gender identity to being straight or cisgender. We’ll discuss this practice from a faith perspective. Our guests will help us sort it out. Our conversation with Ms. Heather Wilkie, from the Zebra Coalition and community leader Mr. Eric Rollings, about the “conversion therapy” ban – that’s coming up in just a moment on this episode of Friends Talking Faith.
