Parents Sue New Jersey For The Right To Send Their Son To Gay Conversion Therapy Torture

Evil Prayers

Now that gay conversion therapy on minors is banned and unlawful in the state of New Jersey a “religious” couple arguing that their constitutional rights are being infringed upon since they cannot pursue the dangerous and quakery treatment for their 15-year-old son and suing the state.

The new lawsuit argues that the couple’s son has “unwanted gender identity disorder and unwanted same-sex attractions:”

The AP reports:

The suit filed in federal court in Camden on Friday is at least the second to attack the law. A separate suit that names two licensed therapists among its plaintiffs awaits a judge’s ruling, said Demetrios Stratis, an attorney involved in both cases.

The unidentified New Jersey couple claim in their suit that the law violates their rights to free speech and freedom of religion, as well as their 14th Amendment right to equal protection, by “denying minors the opportunity to pursue a particular course of action that can help them address the conflicts between their religious and moral values and same-sex attractions, behaviors or identity.”

I mean really. How dare the government infringe upon their right to abuse and possibly murder their son?

Funny how the same people who think its perfectly fine when it suits their warped sense of religion for a state to regulate abortion because the state has a legitimate interest in the regulation of the practice of medicine fight tooth and nail against the safety and well being of their born children all in the name of hate and religious extremism.
