It’s been a slow start to the state legislative session, which convened on January 10, 2022. Even so, a major threat to religious liberty and parental rights has raised its head in recent days.
Shockingly, two Democratic state legislators have introduced a bill that would make Christian counseling illegal for children struggling with sexual orientation and gender dysphoria.
This so-called “conversion therapy ban” would apply to licensed mental health providers employed by churches and Christian counseling groups who use talk therapy to help children accept their God-given sex and live according to a biblical sexual ethic.
The legislation (House Bill 483), which is sponsored by Rep. John McCrostie (D-Garden City) and Sen. Grant Burgoyne (D-Boise), was introduced late last week in the House Committee on Health and Welfare.
Here’s the bad news: we’ve been made aware that a committee hearing on HB483 is forthcoming.
Please use our action center to send an email to the committee members asking them to vote against this dangerous and radical legislation!
