I'm confused; What does the law /rule actually say? And why\is the Church opposed to changing it ? Details please- I second K Mc Clure above- Please explain in detail- Thanks
The document raises some concerns about the proposed rule that should be given consideration before the rule is adopted.
However, their request that the rule making process be taken out of the hands of professionals and given back to the legislators is a terrible idea and should be rejected. Let’s let the professionals complete their work and establish appropriate safety from damaging conversion therapies, which the church agrees should be eliminated.
I'm relieved to see the church take a stand for reasoned fairness. There are a pleura of counselors who are ready and willing to celebrate, encourage and even promote alternative life styles. There should be agency to choose a counselor who can give compassionate care for someone sho wants to consider other paths. Enough of the scare tactics - time for reason.
Thank goodness the Church is taking a stand against a rule that would seriously affect the efficacy of counselors in dealing with LGBTQ concerns. No psychologist should be limited in his or her counseling in this important area. Each has received specific and thorough investigation and education in how to meet the emotional needs of their clients. Lawmakers do not know more than these counselors. Furthermore, each client always maintains the right to accept or decline advice and/or treatment concerning this sensitive issue.
So what is the proposed rule?
