Kansas City Stands Up For LGBT NextGen Amid Deadly Homicide Crisis

We notice progressives echoing our sentiments on the PSEUDOSCIENCE danger of this uncommon and totally illegitimate practice . . . Very much like Visit KC tourism numbers or the Green New Deal claiming the world is gonna end in 12 years if you don't give them 90 trillion dollars . . . This practice should be banned . . . But we would be remiss if we didn't juxtapose this civil right struggle with people dying in KCMO streets every day.

Here's the best roundup public radio has offered so far . . .

Pseudoscience Conversion Therapy Could Be Outlawed In Kansas City

Therapists who attempt to change the sexual orientation or gender identity of LGBTQ minors through conversion therapy could be fined up to $500 dollars and spend as much as six months in jail, if the Kansas City council approves an ordinance passed by a committee today.

We have too many homosexuals swishing around spreading diseases already. We need to keep conversion therapy around to at least help some faggots return to be normal.

And maybe you could become gay. It's just as possible.

A symbolic gesture at best. Someone who wants to pursue this therapy only needs to open an office in JoCo or a MO suburb. Add to that the fact that it probably would be thrown out by higher courts if it were ever challenged.

The ordinance clearly violates the 1st amendment. KC government is a banana republic.

We need to keep a data base on who these dicksuckers are and where they’re located so when the next civi war happens we can use them as cannon fodder at least they’ll be good for something besides spreading diseases

A pink convertible should not be converted into a pickup truck, but do we really need an ordinance to outlaw the practice?

Tell Quinton Lucas to stop pandering to special-interest groups!

He just got smacked down with the Paseo/MLK vote, now smack him down again.

is there any evidence of conversion therapies in KC or is this just a posturing thing by Q because he embarrassed himself with the MLK thing?

First, this deals only with minors and has nothing to do with religion. Parents are free to sacrifice a chicken to the voodoo gods and sprinkle their kid with it if they choose -- so long as it is their chicken and their child.

And, adults are free to pay someone to sprinkle them with beheaded chickens.

What the ordinance prohibits is paid "professionals" from engaging in a practice that is not any more effective than beheaded chickens in changing the sexual orientation of a person and is far more harmful. Oh, and unethical in their profession.

No clue of the ordinance solves a real problem; but the ordinance does highlight the emphasis on diversity and inclusion in Kansas City, MO. Kansas City is not unlike endless other flyover metropolitan areas with an exodus of the college graduates departing to live and work elsewhere. 65 year old conservatives may vote more than the 20 somethings; but the 20 somethings work and pay taxes. Kansas City needs to work to recruit and retain the 20 somethings or the businesses will go where the workers go. The ordinance is good for business.

Oh, right, Phil, parents tossing chicken blood at kids is analogous to providing counseling. That's bizarre and exceedingly STUPID!!!

Parents and guardians ARE allowed to guide their dependent minors in matters of education and morals. So, YOU'RE ASSERTING THAT families having their kids attend churches, synagogues, and such, where same sex relationships aren't condoned are---THE ABSOLUTE WORST!!! Right, freaky blood flinger, Phil???

And, parents having their kids attend Catholic and other private or religion based schools where it's instructed that gay relationships aren't accepted in their religious beliefs---are GOLD MEDALISTS OF THE MOMMY DEAREST COMPETITION!!! Sure is the same thing as cutting cluckers heads off crap, huh, Cardarella???
