Nevada law allows religious whack-jobs to force teens to “pray the gay away”

Gov. Brian Sandoval signed a bill Wednesday that would ban mental health professionals from preforming sexual conversion therapy on minors under the age of 18.

Senate Bill 201, which was sponsored by Sen. David Parks, D-Las Vegas, would make it illegal for licensed mental health practitioners to provide therapy designed to change a minor’s sexual orientation or gender identity.

But the bill was amended to exempt religious organizations and allow members of that faith to provide counseling.

So it’s still OK for religious whack-jobs to force teens to “pray the gay away”.

Activist within the LGBTQ communities say it’s a step in the right direction. They’re probably right. A bitter-sweet victory is better than a total loss.

So much for the Fourth Amendment. Enjoy your Police State.
