California becomes first state
in nation to ban 'gay cure'
therapy for children

NBC News, by James Eng

Original Article

Posted By:Photoonist, 9/30/2012 3:12:53 PM

California has become the first state in the nation to ban therapy that tries to turn gay teens straight. Gov. Jerry Brown announced Sunday that he has signed Senate Bill 1172, which prohibits children under age 18 from undergoing “sexual orientation change efforts.” The law, which goes into effect Jan. 1, prohibits state-licensed therapists from engaging in these practices with minors. "Governor Brown today reaffirmed what medical and mental health organizations have made clear: Efforts to change minors' sexual orientation are not therapy, they are the relics of prejudice and abuse that have

Comments:
But they are still allowing (even pushing) ''sex change'' therapies and drugs for pre-teens, based on the opinions of some freak psychiatrists. Sorry conservatives in California but your state can't collapse fast enough so that the leftist Democrats in charge lose their power and are shown for what they are to the nation.

Therapy is exactly what homosexual children (and adults!) need to help them cope with their profound mental illness.

So, of course, CA bans the only right thing to do.

Situation normal.

Can't they just go so bankrupt from their socialism that they just vanish forever? Or just slide into the Pacific and be done with it?

There is no hope for that benighted state.

None.

OK. Thought experiment. If gay is so normal, and there were only gay couples in California, and there was a fence around California, (which there ought to be) how long would it take for them to all die out? Unlike normal people, who procreate through their children, gays MUST convince other people's children that it's OK to be gay. They are committing child abuse of our children, and have advanced so far as to criminalize criticism of the practice.

As I understand from articles, the primary elements of CA education on sex are:

1) A healthy sex life is necessary for a happy life and should start at puberty
2) Your parents should play no role in limiting your sex life
3) Experimentation with homosexuality, bisexuality, and cross dressing is useful for full sexual development

So I have no difficulty imagining Jerry Brown saying parental interference is banned. What I find hard to believe is all those parents let the State create this environment.

California did uphold the 'right' to murder the gay child... if the gay child survives a partial birth abortion.

What, too much? As I understand the homosexual advocates, a person is born gay. One of the few things the current President ever voted on was the 'right' of abortion doctors to kill/murder babies who survive abortions. I think that is where the 'partial birth' part comes in. So I think I'm within the boundaries of the subject.

I guess we want our lawmakers to decide if we can make it out of the delivery room alive, what can be discussed when we are children and what we can eat or drink as adults. Next up, when they think YOU should be dead.

Will someone please ask one of these progressive politicians to explain just what "homosexuality" is?

By what mechanism does one become non-heterosexual? Is it genetic?...psychological? ...a birth defect, caused in the womb? For many lesbians it is proudly--and not irreversibly--a choice.

Science has never answered that question--psychiatrists only agreed to stop asking it.

Let's be honest. Which side in this debate does not know what it's talking about--but still insists on telling free Americans what they can & cannot do?

We at Townhall have been covering this hotly contested Senate race for months and the results are finally in: With 36 percent of precincts reporting, Elizabeth Warren has been declared the next junior Senator from Massachusetts. Warren has never held public office before and the eye-popping $40 million she raised this election cycle evidently proved more than enough to unseat incumbent Senator Scott Brown. This was the most expensive Senate race of 2012 -- by a long shot.

CNN’s Peter Hamby reported that Mitt Romney‘s internal polling showed President Obama leading in Ohio by five percentage points.Per Hamby’s post: The number represented a sharp final bump for Obama in Ohio, a race that had essentially been a tied race through much of the previous week, according to the campaign’s daily tracking. The polling, which also showed a tight race in Pennsylvania, explains why Romney officials decided to send their candidate on last-minute Election Day visits to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.

Washington - Early returns on Tuesday in what is anticipated to be a dead even presidential election contained no surprises, as CNN projected President Barack Obama will win his home state of Illinois and eight other races while Republican challenger Mitt Romney will win nine states. All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides. Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history, reflecting the deep political

A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.

Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama. In 2008, Obama won independents in the state by

Women made up 51 percent of the electorate, compared to 49 percent among women. Thirty-nine percent of voters so far identified themselves as Democrats, compared to 30 percent calling themselves Republican. Thirty-one percent identified as independent or something else, and Romney has a big edge among this group - 56 percent to 40 percent for Mr. Obama.

National media outlets called the race in West Virginia shortly after polls closed at 7:30 p.m. President Obama’s fate in West Virginia has never been in question, as he garnered just 60 percent of the democratic vote in the May primary.

Early exit polls show Election Day voters are slightly more Republican than in 2008 and broadly concerned about the state of the U.S. economy. Six in 10 voters said the economy is their top issue according to the poll, which was released by The Associated Press and conducted on behalf of a consortium of media companies. Less than a quarter of voters said their families were better off than four years ago — a point seized on by many Republicans as the results leaked out.

The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000.

Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”
