Freedom to Counsel the children in what ever help they need .

Do not punish the licensed counselors for wanting to help a patient overcome their unwanted sexual feelings by affirming biological realities concerning males or females . There is a root cause for this being attracted to the same sex could be of some trauma or sex abuse of famliy or friend that can cause wanting comfort from the same sex, This has to do with emotions that this patient has experience and when they come for help then the counselors need to help them every way possible to get to the root of the issue.  You dont just become gay if comes from a root problem, and they have to right to get help!  This is not normal and will never be no matter what other people say. I stand by Gods word and nobody can change that , I mean nobody.
