“ACLU Sues To Stop Tennessee Schools From Censoring Gay Educational Web Sites”

    ACLU: “The American Civil Liberties Union and the ACLU of Tennessee sued two Tennessee school districts in federal court today, charging the schools are unconstitutionally blocking students from accessing online information about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues. Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools, Knox County Schools and as many as 105 other school districts in Tennessee use Internet filtering software to block Web sites containing pro-LGBT speech, but not Web sites touting so-called ‘reparative therapy’ and ‘ex-gay’ ministries . . . More information about the case, including the ACLU’s complaint and a video featuring one of the student plaintiffs, is available online at:www.aclu.org/lgbt/youth/39346res20090413.html

Protesters shout obscenities at particants in London Reparative Thereapy conference

    David W. Virtue writes at Virtue Online:

    I am huddled inside the doorway of Emmanuel Center, a church near Westminster Abbey, as hundreds of gay protesters yell and shout obscenities at a conference where speakers are offering healing for the homosexual through reparative therapy. Anglican Mainstream sponsors the event.

    Chanting “2,4,6,8 there is no cure only hate,” protesters, including heavily made up Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, angry gay activists wave placards reading “only prejudice needs a cure”, “there is no cure for love”, “positive alternative to bigotry”, “even Jesus loves gays” and “inside lies obfuscation and despair”.

“Gays can change. Reparative Therapy works.”

    David W. Virtue interviews Dr. Joseph Nicolosi at Virtue Online: “I spoke with Dr. Nicolosi, a California therapist who employs seven therapists who deal exclusively in sexual addictions and same sex attractions. He heads an organization called NARTH – the National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality. NARTH is a professional, scientific organization that offers hope to those who struggle with unwanted homosexuality. As an organization, they disseminate educational information, conduct and collect scientific research, promote effective therapeutic treatment, and provide referrals to those who seek their assistance. NARTH upholds the rights of individuals with unwanted homosexual attraction to receive effective psychological care and the right of professionals to offer that care. I spoke at length with Dr. Nicolosi about the issues and problems he faces.”
