One really does have to wonder if it's possible for the Christofascists to get any crazier., but with New Jersey recently banning "ex-gay" therapy for minors and the 9th Circuit upholding California's ban, the mentally untethered "godly Christian" crowd seems to be growing ever more hysterical and delusional. The good aspect of all of this, of course, is that the craziness will drive yet more people away for the Christofascist agenda and religion in general. A column in the America Thinker - I know, it's an oxymoron given the Christofascist aversion to thinking - illustrates just how nuts these people have become. If anyone wants to establish a theocracy akin to Saudi Arabia, its the Christofascists, not progressives. Here are excerpts from a screed entitled "Conversion Therapy Law Threatens Christians" attacking New Jersey Governor Chris Christie:
When Chris Christie signed a law against conversion therapy directed at counseling teens experiencing homoerotic feelings, he probably didn't think he had just put New Jersey on a path similar to countries like Saudi Arabia, which forbids conversion from the prevailing Muslim faith.
But forbidding efforts to convert is essentially what the governor did. He expressly forbade conversion from the prevailing progressive religion, whose chief doctrine is that sexual behavior, including the homoerotic behavior of some children, is a sacred, infallible, and therefore unchangeable indicator of what human identity entails.
We can suspect that the real goal is to make sure no one other than progressive high priests of sex counsel youngsters about sexuality. The unstated companion goal is the elimination of Christian and other conservative therapists from the profession.
