A federal magistrate has agreed to lift part of Tampa, Fla.’s ban on conversion therapy for minors. The decision came after a Christian legal group, Liberty Counsel, challenged the ban in court, saying it infringes on the freedoms of speech and religion of Christian therapists and clients who wish to participate in such therapy. Liberty is representing two Christian therapists in the city. U.S. Magistrate Judge Amanda Arnold Sansone agreed with Liberty Counsel that the ban does endanger the free speech of these counselors and damages the right of minor clients to receive information. Sansone has permitted Liberty Counsel to move forward with their challenge to the constitutionality of Tampa’s ban.
