For the Record: It’s Not Conversion Therapy I’m Backing

My last NRO post on Chuck Limandri and the ConscienceDefense.org case he will argue tomorrow in court in Jersey City has generated predictable headlines in the gay/left press that I’m now backing “conversion therapy.” I don’t back something called “conversion therapy.”  I don’t even really know what conversion therapy is, and I’m not qualified to express an opinion on a particular kind of therapy.

I back the right of gay people to seek the kind of counseling help they want, not the kind the SPLC lawyers want them to have, including help to live their sexual lives with integrity, according to their own values, not the SPLC’s values. That’s all.
