AUDIO: Landmark Legal Decision! Therapists Can Help Same-Sex Attracted Youth!

Is it legal to restrict licensed individuals from pursuing their client's therapy goals?

Mat Staver is Founder of Liberty Counsel, which defends religious freedom in cases across the nation. He is also Chairman of the National Pro-life Center, Freedom Federation, Salt & Light Council, and the National House of Hope. He serves as Vice President of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, and was Vice President of Liberty University, as well as a former Dean and law professor.

This is an audio podcast of The Dr J Show. Full video episode is available here. Readings and resources below cut.


Mat has over 300 published legal opinions. He authored eight scholarly law review publications, and many books and publications. He is a frequent guest on many international and national television and radio programs and has been interviewed for thousands of media sources.

Mat has filed numerous briefs and argued in many federal and state courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court. He has argued two landmark cases before SCOTUS: Madsen v. Women's Health Center, and, McCreary County v. ACLU of Kentucky.

Prior to law school, Mat pastored several churches.

In Otto v. City of Boca Raton, therapist Robert Otto sued the city for the right to talk with clients about their feelings of sexual attraction, the impact of those feelings, and strategies for improving the quality of their lives. The City of Boca Raton had passed an ordinance criminalizing “conversion therapy,” or “reparative therapy,” or, Sexual Orientation Change Efforts.

It is simply not true that sexual orientation is an immutable trait. There is no "gay gene." But if the Sexual Revolutionaries can convince people that gay is like being black, then they can apply anti-discrimination law to sexual behavior.

The scientific fact is that there are numerous ways into an LGBT lifestyle, and there are numerous ways out. The Dr J Show has featured many people who left the "gay" lifestyle, happily.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit agreed with Mat Staver that this particular form of speech must not be banned.

Topics discussed in this episode include:

  • California's "Reproductive FACT Act" made it criminal for counselors to help clients with unwanted same-sex attraction or gender dysphoria.
  • Anti-reparative therapy bans are LGBTQIA+ propaganda to keep hurting people imprisoned in their conflict.
  • Anti-reparative therapy laws are viewpoint-based, where the State determines which views are allowed and which views are criminal.
  • There is no evidence that reparative therapy harms clients.
  • In many cases, the State has admitted they need more research, which only proves they have no evidence to criminalize therapy.
  • the significance of Trump-appointed, originalist/constitutionalist judges
  • conflict of interest among judges in the liberal courts
  • 99.1% of Californians are not allowed corporate worship -- under threat of huge fines and jail time.
  • The State of California has decreed that 99.1% of Christians cannot:
    • worship corporately
    • have a home Bible Study with a pastor
    • have a deacon come pray for them
  • ALL these cases denying religious freedom have in common pro-abortion, pro-sodomy Democrat politicians and judges.
  • There's no evidence that minors are helped longterm by transgender treatments.
  • Many people --including politicians and even judges-- believe the lie that reparative counseling involves torture.
  • Just as the Sexual State doesn't want women in unplanned pregnancies to know they have options, so the Sexual State doesn't want those suffering from unwanted same-sex attractions to know that they have hope of normalcy.
  • Thousands of former "gays" HAVE changed, very happily.
  • The liberal courts created a category limiting free speech for pro-life centers & Christian counselors, and called it "professional speech."
  • The U.S. Supreme Court rejected California's argument that linked reparative therapy ban-reasoning with forcing pro-life centers to advertise abortion because licensed therapists & centers do not have free speech.

AUDIO: When Did Our Culture Begin To Die? Preserving Tradition and Family

John Horvat II is a scholar, researcher, educator, and international speaker. He is vice president and a member of the board of directors for the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP), head of the TFP Commission for American studies, and a TFP Sedes Sapientiae Institute instructor.

Mr. Horvat is the author of the book Return to Order: From a Frenzied Economy to an Organic Christian Society–Where We’ve Been, How We Got Here and Where We Need to Go. Horvat's writings have appeared worldwide including in The Wall Street Journal, The Christian Post, American Thinker, TheBlaze, Crisis, FOX News, and The Washington Times, as well as other publications and websites. He gives more than 150 radio and TV interviews annually.

This episode of the Dr. J Show focuses on the connection between cultural and economic decline. Topics discussed include:

  • All political battles are moral battles. We are in a national moral crisis.
  • The Left seeks revolution--not just change, but the overthrow of the system. They don't want the American order.
  • Science separated from a moral foundation is technocratic tyranny.
  • Leadership is service.
  • To be yourself, you can't be obsessed with being "equal" with everybody else. The sexes are different, not "equal." Allowing everyone to develop themselves *unequally* is what makes society prosper. Resentment over our inequalities destroys societal harmony.
  • Societal order focuses on mutually helpful relationships.
  • Radically egalitarian societies always lead to disorder and bloodshed.
  • Past revolutions sought to destroy exterior structures (church, government, society), but the Sexual Revolution seeks to destroy internal stuctures (identity, logic, being): in other words, self-annihilation.

When he’s not writing, Mr. Horvat enjoys jogging and fencing. He lives in Spring Grove, Pennsylvania.

DR J SHOW AUDIO: Removed Book! Talk with the Author of The Health Hazards of Homosexuality

Amazon banned this book, so we wanted to talk to the author and find out what was more important than the right to press.

Brian Camenker has been the Director of Mass Resistance from its founding. A leading pro-family activist organization, MassResistance provides the information and guidance people need to confront assaults on the traditional family, school children, and the moral foundation of society. Based in Massachusetts, they have supporters and activists in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and several foreign countries.

Listen
This is an audio podcast of The Dr J Show. Full video episode is available here.

Brian Camenker has been interviewed by American Family Radio (with Sandy Rios, Janet Mefferd, Bryan Fischer, Charlie Butts), Michael Brown (Line of Fire), Cherilyn Bacon Eagar (Red State Talk Radio), RoadKill Radio (British Columbia), and dozens of other radio shows, TV stations, and newspapers around the world. The organization's articles have appeared in American Thinker, Salvo Magazine, BarbWire, LifeSiteNews, The Massachusetts News, and The Jewish Advocate. In earlier years (when the mainstream media still reported on these issues) we were featured in the NBC Nightly News, CNN, CBS, ABC Evening News, MSNBC, National Public Radio, New York Times, and Fox News (O’Reilly Factor, Hannity & Colmes, and America’s Newsroom with Megyn Kelly).

More about MassResistance below the cut.


MassResistance was founded in 1995 as Parents’ Rights Coalition. Since we were in the first state to see homosexual activism in the schools and “gay marriage,” we thoroughly understood the threat of sexual radicalism, curtailed freedom of speech, uneven application of the law, judicial activism, and post-constitutional government. We adopted the name MassResistance in 2006 when our role as the true resistance to tyrannical government became clear.

Boston Herald columnist Howie Carr once described us as a “hardcore pro-family group.” We cover issues and events other conservative groups are afraid to touch. We don’t compromise with the Left. We provide analysis so the average person understands what’s really happening. And we give citizens and activists everywhere the tools and strategy to effectively confront the anti-family forces against them.

In contrast, rather than being truthful and confrontational, too many pro-family groups want to be seen as “reasonable" and “not extreme." They tend to "fight" by writing commentary, re-posting shocking articles, and putting up a polite opposition to the latest left-wing lunacy. So they don't accomplish much.

But MassResistance focuses on exposing the harsh truths. Our two published books provide examples: In 2011 we exposed former Governor Mitt Romney’s soft record towards homosexuality, along with his unconstitutional implementation of “gay marriage.” In 2017, we published The Health Hazards of Homosexuality, which has been called a tour de force by the president of the American College of Pediatricians.
