More Stupidity: Texas GOP advances ‘therapy’ to turn gay people straight

Ted CruzThe Texas Republican Party’s new platform may endorse psychological treatment that seeks to turn gay people straight, in a move partly aimed at rebuking laws in California and New Jersey that ban "reparative therapy" — also known as conversion therapy — for minors.

A push to include the new language in the platform survived a key vote late Thursday in Fort Worth at the Texas Republican Convention while, across the street, tea party star Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, fired up attendees at a rally to defend marriage as between a man and a woman.

Under the proposed new plank, the Texas GOP will "recognize the legitimacy and efficacy of counseling, which offers reparative therapy and treatment for those patients seeking healing and wholeness from their homosexual lifestyle."

The full convention of nearly 10,000 delegates from across Texas will take a final vote on the platform on Saturday.

TVNL Comment:  These sexually repressed conservatives really need therapy of their own.  They are so damn frightened of people in the LGBT community that their mere existence has become a major obsession they cannot let go of.
