Speaking at an event hosted by the Heritage Foundation on Monday, John G West (right) from creationist organization the Discovery Institute spoke out in favor of "ex-gay" therapy, Right Wing Watch reports.
The Heritage Foundation aims “to formulate and promote conservative public policies based on the principles of free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense.”
"Ex-gay" therapy has been denounced by the medical community and banned in Washington, D.C., California, and New Jersey.
In a speech mostly devoted to attacking evolution, West took time out to claim that LGBT rights advocates are harming young people by placing limits on conversion therapy and pushing “preposterous” claims about sexual orientation.
