In addition to making it illegal for licensed counselors to dissuade minors from same-sex-attractions, it also makes it illegal to dissuade them from same-sex sexual activities. While proponents of this bill have erroneously noted that this law does not apply to clergy in general, it has a chilling effect by placing clergy who are also licensed therapists in a legal quagmire when giving counseling that coincides with their beliefs and doctrines.
PJI will be evaluating options for appealing this ruling.
