Welcome to a special topic episode on our current fight for a national ban against conversion therapy in Canada.
Thankfully this topic probably doesn’t enter the minds of 99% of humans… and yet this topic continues to cause adverse childhood trauma, ongoing mental health challenges, and is one of the leading causes of LGBTQ2S+ suicide.
Bill C-6 is the Canadian government's plan to implement a nationwide ban on conversion therapy. In response, our evangelical and catholic churches are fighting to keep this lethal practice alive. Our LGBTQ2S+ children are being harmed by the homophobic church.
Where do you stand on inclusion in your life, your world, your church, and your home?
Are you going to stand up for love and help protect the lives of all of God’s children?
Where does your church stand on full inclusion for all people?
The children who grow up in the church need our protection. You may not hear their cry but they need your help. Will you help them?
