Hate group called out for junk science attack on LGBTQ children

The Alliance Defending Freedom is being called out for its attack on LGBTQ children.

Even though a lot of folks don't seem to be hip to the Alliance Defending Freedom's war on LGBTQ America, its nice to see the work of the folks who are hip to the hate group:

Campaign Unveils New Billboard Spotlighting Alliance Defending Freedom’s Lone Support for Conversion Therapy No Gays Allowed Campaign Points Viewers to Website to Learn About ADF’s Support for Discredited and Dangerous Practice (New York City, New York)

The No Gays Allowed campaign unveiled its third billboard highlighting the Alliance Defending Freedom’s (ADF) war on LGBT people this week focused on ADF’s lone support for the practice of conversion therapy. The billboard spotlights ADF’s support for a practice that is deemed “unfair and deceptive” by medical professionals and respected organizations focused on protecting our youth. The billboard points viewers to ImADF.org, where they can learn more about ADF’s history of supporting conversion therapy, defending workplace discrimination against LGBT people, and advocating against anti-bullying protections for LGBT youth.

 The billboard reads:

 Alliance Defending Freedom is harming kids. ImADF.org  

 You can’t turn LGBT kids straight. 
Just ask: 
 American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, 
American Academy of Pediatrics, 
 American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, 
 American College of Physicians, 
 American Counseling Association, 
American Medical Association,  
 American Psychiatric Association, 
 American School Counselor Association ,
 National Association of Social Workers, 
 So why does Alliance Defending Freedom think conversion therapy is okay?

 “Alliance Defending Freedom is on the wrong side of history when it supports conversion therapy, which remains one of the most egregious acts against our community.” said Caleb Cade, spokesperson for the No Gays Allowed campaign.

“Conversion therapy does just what the billboard says, it harms kids, just ask any of these expert organizations.” The new billboard comes on the heels of the No Gays Allowed campaign launch late last year, putting ADF on the defensive.
