Massachusetts GOP governor signs bill banning gay conversion therapy
Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker (R) on Monday signed a bill banning gay conversion therapy for minors in the state.
The Massachusetts State House News Service reported that Baker signed the bill, which bars health care providers from conducting or promoting "sexual orientation and gender identity change efforts with a patient who is less than 18 years of age."
The move makes Massachusetts the 16th state, in addition to Washington, D.C., to enact protections for LGBTQ youth regarding the practice, which has been widely denounced as harmful and medically discredited.
The measure was overwhelmingly passed by the Massachusetts state House and Senate earlier this month, according to NBC Boston....
Thanks, "Christopher" for the info on the number of Roman Catholics. A reminder to all is that the Roman Catholic Church is the largest denomination in the US, way more than the 2nd place Baptists. I wonder if someone will do a documentary film on the sodomite movie, to show how the American Psychologists Association "Diagnostic Manual" rated sodomites as a mental illness just a mere 20 or 30 years ago, but this was changed after heavy lobbying by sodomite groups. The same thing is being mentioned for child abusers, that they 'were born that way' and 'cannot be helped' You could make the same argument for blacks who are out killing whites, that they cannot change, that their history involves so much oppression by White Society that this is the only thing their mind has to resolve it.
Here's the interesting thing...RI and MA have the highest number of Roman Catholics, per capita, than anywhere in the US. The numbers are very high, maybe like 45%, with mainline, and evangelical Protestants making up another 20%, somewhere in there, and the remainder, a little of this, and a little of that, e.g., Athiests, Buddhists, etc. RI and MA have been Democratic States for a long time, and assuming that most Protestants vote conservative, that means that many Catholics vote Democrat to tip the scales. I believe most of Washington's left side claim to be Catholic as well, so, hmmm.
Today, I heard a Priest tell someone that they pray to saints, because Jesus prayed to saints. This joker said that Moses and Elijah appeared to Jesus on Mt Tabor, because He prayed to them to appear. Disgusting, and devilish false religion.
Sad, sad, sad. God made His Word available to anyone who wants His truth, but so many rely upon mere men for their eternal security. Tragic.
In a fallen world where even the children are trained to be evil, dissolute and morally blind, only God can solve the crisis and bring about virtue, decency and righteousness.
Psalm 109:1 Hold not thy peace, O God of my praise; 2 For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful are opened against me: they have spoken against me with a lying tongue. 3 They compassed me about also with words of hatred; and fought against me without a cause. 4 For my love they are my adversaries: but I give myself unto prayer. 5 And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love. 6 Set thou a wicked man over him: and let Satan stand at his right hand. 7 When he shall be judged, let him be condemned: and let his prayer become sin. 8 Let his days be few; and let another take his office. 9 Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow. 10 Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg: let them seek their bread also out of their desolate places."

I hear Amazing Desmond (11yrs old) in NY performs at homosex venues and the state won't take him from his mother. Good Morning American features him about a year ago in drag. These people don't want kids helped cause they are themselves are perverts and want young recruits. The parents of this nation had better come together and resist.
