Ban conversion therapy

Crusaders forced practices on aboriginal peoples. That was obviously an immoral force of religion on the basis of government upon a people. Our government is by design separated from religious practices and as such would be condoning immoral conduct against its citizens by allowing barbaric practices to be inflicted on the basis of religious beliefs. Moreover, science agrees this practice of conversion therapy to be harmful. The reparations for damage would far outweigh any perceived benefit (the oppressor May enjoy). To ensure a society remains intact of its freedom of religion it must also protect its citizens enjoy the natural freedom of expression in its pursuit of life, liberty and happiness. Ban conversion therapy.
