Protect Minors from Conversion Therapy

As a pastor with a degree in counseling, I often provide pastoral care to those who are spiritually wounded. I have counseled people struggling to recover from the damage done to them through conversion therapy. It is not uncommon for those who experienced conversion therapy to not trust their church, their pastors, or the love of their God. Some people never heal from this trauma. Please protect minors from having this dangerous, unscientific practice forced upon them.
