The state of New York moved to outlaw gay ‘cure’ practises for minors last year, but adults are still free to seek treatment.

    1. Thanks for commenting. I did note in his story that he never felt God wanted him to change, only his followers. I’ve seen a bumper sticker a handful of times that says “It’s not God I have a problem with; it’s his fans.”
