Principled counselors urged to continue helping gender-confused children

Thomasson: "When a child is molested and suffers gender confusion as a result, it is unconscionable not to help the child escape the mental cage of their sexual perpetrator"

Sacramento, California -- Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, a leading family values organization that promotes moral virtues for the common good, has issued the following statement regarding yesterday's refusal of the U.S. Supreme Court's to hear an appeal of the California Democrats' ban on professional counseling for gender-confused children.

"When a child is molested and suffers gender confusion as a result, it is unconscionable not to help the child escape the mental cage of their sexual perpetrator," Thomasson said. "The Democrats' SB 1172 prohibits parents and counselors from loving gender-confused children enough to address and heal their inner pain, and instead locks children into unnatural homosexual and transsexual behavior."

"We call upon principled counselors to continue helping these damaged children, despite this bad law of the 'LGBT' groups and Democrat lawmakers," Thomasson said. "This unconstitutional statute violates the free speech and religious freedom of parents and counselors, and revictimizes children who desperately need help for their damaged souls."
