Crampton: Banning 'Ex-Gay' Therapy Is Just Like Promoting Eugenics
Matt Barber and Steve Crampton began today's "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast by attacking Rep. Nancy Pelosi for accepting the Margaret Sanger Award from Planned Parenthood last month, but the discussion quickly got sidetracked into criticism of efforts to outlaw the use of "ex-gay" reparative therapy on minors, with Crampton comparing it to efforts by mental health professionals to promote eugenics in the early 1900s in order to sterilize and eliminate "undesirables":
And the side to the whole eugenics movement that I think still underlies the abortion industry in America is that it was pioneered by and championed by the so-called experts.
In 1909, California adopted laws forcing sterilization of those they deemed unfit. It took some six decades before they stopped the practice, during which time sixty thousand Americans were sterilized involuntarily by the experts. We're talking the California Psychiatric Association, in particular.
Interestingly enough, here we are today at Liberty Counsel litigating against the California psychiatrists and the American Psychiatric Association that so many folks hold in high regard and now they're touting theories about homosexuality rather than eugenics, but the theories are equally devoid of any kind of scientific basis.
And what I want to say to our listeners is beware the experts. So often, it is the experts that get us into the deep, deep weeds and the darkest places of the experience of humanity and so blindly following them can get us into horrific places.
