Yes – it sounds like I’m picking on Joel Osteen.  Sounds like I’m even judging him. … So I’m not picking on Joel Osteen.

Unintended Consequences – CA SB 1172

This is – first and foremost – a law that targets innocent children.

However, when that minor child turns 18, they are free to get conversion therapy on their own.
