One has to wonder if the President’s initiative is an effort to extend an olive branch to the LGBT community after securing his conservative, Christian base for the first two years he's been in office?
Gay activists have testified in front of hundreds of legislative bodies in their efforts to prevent “conversion therapy,” which they call child abuse. The main problem with these “conversion therapy” horror stories is that once they are scrutinized, the details become stranger than fiction.
When describing the pediatric community's encouragement of sex change and hormonal treatments for gender dysphoric youth, Cretella called it "institutionalized child abuse."
Is it really true that "many persons" don't identify as male or female and are uncomfortable with "he" or "she" or other sex-specific words and pro-nouns? In actuality, this is not the truth. So why is Teen Vogue and other "mainstream" media outlets pushing this "gender nonbinary" narrative?

An utterly ridiculous notion, "gay conversion therapy" is a farce – a term made-up by gay activists to vilify and demonize professional counselors and religious ministers who, out of compassion and love, seek to help those sincerely distressed by unwanted attractions that are unnatural to who they really believe they are.
Surely, such musings from non-Christians shouldn't surprise us. The type of "joke" Griffin made is inappropriate and wrong on so many levels, but before we get into why Griffin did it, we have to understand what led up to this event.
The problem is that what was shown on 20/20 was not therapy at all. Licensed, ethical therapists do not force or coerce teenagers to change, nor do they manipulate desperate parents to send their kids away to be reformed.
I know what it is like to journey with a person that has severe trauma, and as a result, is conflicted with their sexual or gender identity. I have been there and experienced it myself. To be honest, it took me many years to learn how to feel good about myself.
Sadly, I was not at all surprised to see another Republican sell out conservative social values for the sake of political expediency.
