A letter signed by thousands of Christian ministers and pastoral workers in the United Kingdom, asking lawmakers to make sure Christian prayer and preaching are not censored by any bans on so-called “conservation therapy,” is as bad as the “Holocaust.”
That’s according to LGBT campaigners who are warning in the United Kingdom and elsewhere around the world that they will tolerate no comment, no sermon, no prayer, no suggestion that their chosen alternative sexual lifestyles should or could be abandoned.
The Christian Institute reported that Robert Mee, of the LGBT-promoting Out of the Bay organization, said the recent letter to government officials was “barbaric.”
“Have we forgotten about the Holocaust and how LGBTQI people were persecuted and killed – history is repeating itself,” he claimed to the Lancaster Guardian.
The letter from the more than 2,500 ministers to Westminster simply asked lawmakers to ensure that prayer, preaching and pastoral care were not caught by some vague legislation.
Mee charged, “Conversion therapy is barbaric – punishing people for being who they are. Surely churches are supposed to love everyone – did God not teach this?”
Conversion therapy is the idea that counseling can provide help for those with unwanted same-sex attractions (continued)
