Morrison Heights Sells Snake Oil

Morrison Heights Baptist Church in Clinton, once again, hosts Restoration Grace this weekend—an ex-gay or reparative therapy conference. A quote pulled from the last conference site stated: “Restoration Grace is a conference your family, church, and city need you to attend and the pro–gay activists hope you’ll miss.”

Unity Mississippi strongly condemns Restoration Grace and encourages Morrison Heights Baptist Church to review the countless studies that demonstrate how dangerous ex-gay “therapy” is for individuals, families, and communities.

The APA has declared that mental health professionals should not tell gay clients they can become straight through therapy or other treatments. Further, the APA has stated that research suggests that efforts to produce change could be harmful, inducing depression and suicidal tendencies.

It is time for Morrison Heights to educate itself on the science of sexuality and stop selling snake-oil to its congregation and the community at large.
