Excerpt from the Liberty Counsel Press Release of May 30, 2013: “Trenton, NJ – As the New Jersey Senate prepares to vote today on S2278, a bill to prohibit sexual orientation change efforts (SOCE), Liberty Counsel vows to vindicate the rights of counselors, minors, and parents should S2278 be enacted and signed by the Governor. Yesterday Liberty Counsel sent letters to New Jersey state senators, asking them to reject this unconstitutional law that tramples the fundamental rights of counselors, minors, and parents.” …

“S2278 prohibits only one viewpoint regarding change counseling and therefore constitutes viewpoint discrimination. No viewpoint-based restriction on private speech has ever been upheld. The Supreme Court ruled that “the First Amendment forbids the government to regulate speech in ways that favor some viewpoints or ideas at the expense of others.” (City Council of L.A. v. Taxpayers for Vincent).”
