A Christian group that claims to cure homosexuality plans to sue the District of Columbia – after it banned ‘ex-gay’ conversion therapy.

The District of Columbia Council voted in December to enact legislation which bans therapists from attempting to ‘cure’ gay teenagers.

However, Voice of the Voiceless, a Christian ‘ex-gay’ advocacy group, revealed this week that it plans to sue DC over the law.

VOTV head Christopher Doyle told Christian Post: “The discrimination this law will enact will actually violate Washington, DC’s Human Rights Act, which provides protection against sexual orientation discrimination towards those who identify as ex-gay in the District.

“This would apply to minors who have unwanted SSA and seek change.

“We are still seeking a plaintiff (minor and their family) who has been disenfranchised by this law in the District, but at this point, we cannot find a licensed practitioner who even practices SOCE therapy in the District, nor can we identify a client who has been disenfranchised.”

Outside of his comments to the mainstream press, Mr Doyle claimed the ban was “a victory for gay paedophiles everywhere”.
