Staver: Ban on ‘Ex-Gay’ Therapy an Assault on God!

Mat Staver, the dumbest lawyer in America not named Larry Klayman, is still furious that both California and New Jersey have banned “ex-gay” therapy for minors and that the courts have upheld both bans. He says this is an “assault on Almighty God.”

“These whole issues of homosexuality is a direct assault on gender, on family, on marriage,” Staver said. “As a policy matter, if you were to sanction homosexuality in the law, you are sanctioning harmful activity to individuals. It is patently unhealthy, both physically and mentally … We cannot recreate the natural created order and assume that there are no consequences; there are consequences to children. So Liberty Counsel is involved in these strategic areas, these areas of assault against the family, against gender, against marriage and family; they are an assault against the very foundation of our society, they are an assault against God Almighty and his created order. This is an assault against all of the Judeo-Christian values that we hold near and dear and that’s why we must be involved in these cases, we must win these cases.”

If it’s an assault against God, why don’t we just let him handle it? I mean, he’s a badass, right? He’s been known to smite people and strike them dead. So why does he need you to fight on his behalf?

    “If it’s an assault against God, why don’t we just let him handle it?”

    The plaintiffs in these cases have iron chariots.

    He got right on it last night. Of course, with His notoriously bad aim, He smote Mississippi.

    Judges 6:31 (emphasis added)

    But Joash said to all who stood against him, “Would you plead for Baal? Would you save him? Let the one who would plead for him be put to death by morning! If he is a god, let him plead for himself, because his altar has been torn down!”

    It is patently unhealthy, both physically and mentally

    So, if you have the right, Mat, to impose your understanding as to what is physically and mentally unhealthy on others, despite the Bill of Rights, then the rest of us can do so as well, right? Well, then, we can outlaw Christian snake handling and the Christian Scientists who won’t medically treat themselves and their the children and the Jehovah’s Witnesses who won’t take transfusions and any parents who don’t want to educate their children in the science of evolution and so on, and so on. All of those things are, in many people’s opinion, physically and mentally unhealthy too.

    We could have a lot of fun with this can of worms.

    Of course, it is possible that we LGBT people are, actually, part of the natural (sic) created order of humanity and gender is more complicated than you think Mat. Nah, just demonize people who reject your perversion of god, that’s way more fun.

    I thought humanity had spent its entire existence learning new ways to bend the “natural order” to its will.

    A ragtag force of black-robed rebels leads the resistance against the tyranny of God. The Sith clan operates in pairs, but it’s not clear whether God is the master, or the apprentice.

    Lawyers must find something to say for their side of the case. As Robert Heinlein said, straining at gnats and swallowing camels are required courses in law school.

    It’s too bad that attributing your desires to a powerful imaginary friend seems to be a course as well.

    Don’t worry, God is already starting. He sent tornadoes to Mississippi to teach them damn liberals a lesson in other states.

    “We cannot recreate the natural created order…”

    Leaving aside the obvious response “whatever that might be,” zoologists assure us that homosexuality is a widespread and natural facet of life for some individuals in a great variety of species. Forcing a deity real or imagined to reflect one’s own illogical notions is a very special kind of masochism.
