In an article titled, “Judge Tells Christian Counseling Student That Her School Was Right to Punish Her for Wanting to Convert Gay Clients,” Hemant Mehta writes:
It was only a week ago when the Michigan House of Representatives passed the “Julea Ward freedom of conscience act,” an act that would ban schools from punishing, say, Christian counseling students who don’t want to help gay clients.
Ward wasn’t the only Christian who refused to help people because of their sexual orientation.
Jennifer Keeton was in the same boat at Augusta State University in Georgia. She took things one step further. She made it clear that if any client ever tells her he’s gay, she’s going to respond by telling him he needs to be “cured.” She supported “conversion therapy,” something that doesn’t work and harms the patients.
