A Big Christian Victory: ‘Gay Conversion Therapy’ Ban Shelved in California

Make no mistake about it. The news from California is very big and very positive. In a somewhat unprecedented move in the history of gay activism, Assemblyman Evan Low, himself gay, has withdrawn AB2943 from a final vote.  The bill, which would have made it illegal for people of any age to receive professional help for unwanted same-sex attractions, was almost certain to pass the Assembly, having been approved by the Senate 25-11. But to Low’s credit, he took the time to meet with faith leaders across the state, hearing their concerns.  In his own words, “I knew this was an emotionally charged issue, so I spent the past few months traveling up and down the state meeting with a wide variety of faith leaders.”  It appears he was sensitive enough to the concerns of these leaders that, for now, he withdrew the bill.
