Liberals claim to oppose conversion therapy, at least when it refers to the practice of trying to convert homosexuals to heterosexuals. They say it’s abuse, even when someone volunteers for it. They want it banned. Several states, including California, have obliged and outlawed it. But most of the people who claim to be against conversion therapy are actually hypocrites. Although they would vehemently deny it, they do, in fact, believe in conversion therapy – and promote it. How? Ironically, they want to force people who are naturally repulsed by homosexuality to change their way of thinking.
Think about the irony here. They are against using conversion therapy on homosexuals because sexual orientation is a natural state than cannot be changed. But they are apparently blind to the fact that one’s repulsion to homosexuality is also a natural state than cannot be changed. Just as people do not choose their sexual orientation, they also do not choose what things they will find repulsive. What is so hard to understand about that? Trying to force someone who is disgusted by homosexuality to change their thinking about it is like trying to force someone who does not like a certain kind of food to start eating it on a regular basis.
