Do Not Punish Faith Based Counselors

Do not punish licensed faith based counselors for helping patients overcome their unwanted sexual feelings by affirming biological realities concerning male and female. No counselors, doctors, nurses or social workers should be treated as "unprofessional" or punished for standing up for what is true and what is best for children and adults.

Regulations must not stifle licensed professionals' free speech rights, with the direct consequence of denying patients their basic right to direct the objectives of the counseling they seek.
