Liberty Counsel - which has a record of losing equaled by that of the horrifically misnamed Alliance Defending Freedom - has suffered another loss. The United States Supreme Court has denied certiorari on Liberty Counsel’s appeal seeking to overturn New Jersey’s ban on ex-gay torture "therapy." It is the second loss on this issue for Liberty Counsel. Back in June 2014 when the Court rejected a similar appeal of California’s ban on ex-gay "therapy." In both instances, the lower court's found that the bans were permissible and directed at protecting minors form harmful therapy condemned by medical and mental health care associations. Not surprisingly, Staver whines that protecting minors from fraudulent, witch doctor like therapy tramples on religious freedom.
