There is absolutely no scientific basis for this dangerous practice. It is rooted in brainwashing and amounts to nothing more than torture. This practice greatly increases the likelihood that a young person will commit suicide. It is rooted in hatred and fear—neither of which are in accordance with Christian values. It must be outlawed to protect young people from irreparable harm by people who should not be allowed to provide ANY kind of psychological or counseling services. These frauds are a danger to our communities.
