Posted on 04/17/2013 2:20:24 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
A federal appeals court is to hear arguments Wednesday on whether a first-of-its-kind law that prohibits licensed mental health professionals in California from offering therapies aimed at making gay and lesbian teenagers straight violates the civil rights of practitioners and parents.
A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is considering two legal challenges to the ban on "sexual orientation change efforts" that was passed by the California Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown last fall.

Seems to me a clear violation of the First Amendment.
BUT, only if you reside in a state that acknowledges and ACCEPTS the U.S. Constitution.
So in Cal. it is legal for a male to have therapy and/or surgery to become a female, but it is not ok for a male to have therapy to be a male. That makes zero sense; not that I except anything but political expediency from the ruling class nowadays.
Then gay they must stay.
Something does not seem right....
It is OK to have a sex change from a man to woman, woman to man. It is OK to dress like a man to woman, woman to man.
It is NOT OK to try to stay a man or a woman.
Something does not seem right...
Whatever happened to people’s right to choose
I has gotten to the point in this country that if any argument or debate point uses the US Constitution as its starting point you have lost before you even started.
The left has been completely successful in rendering this document as simply a historical curiosity with no force of law behind it.
Even the USSC has corrupted their own responsibility from what was to “determine if laws/regulations/EOs of Congress or the Executive branch were ALLOWED by the Constitution” to “Interpreting the Constitution” as if it were written in Vulcan and we were not sure what the hell it means.
When the laws of the country are dictated by mostly 5-4 decisions of 9 alleged most brilliant legal minds in the country, you know you are in trouble and these Black Robed political hacks are simply ultra good politicians who found a job from which they cannot be fired. It is by far the worse run branch of government and that is saying a lot.
Even when the 5-4 decisions align with my way of thinking I know for a fact we are one political hack appointment away from turning this upside down. The 9 members of the USSC do not ALL use the Constitution in their decision process.
