DUP councillor thinks conversion therapy ban is a ‘hoax’ that will push ‘neo Marxist utopia’

Colin Kennedy, a councillor for Ards and North Down Borough Council, spoke out a conversion therapy ban after the council passed a motion calling on Stormont to ban the discredited practice in Northern Ireland. Alliance councillor Connie Egan said a conversion therapy ban would be “a small but significant” step towards building a “more inclusive and welcoming” society for young people in Northern Ireland. “The passage of this motion will be a statement of our belief regarding a potential ban, but it will also be a loud statement of solidarity to our LGBT+ neighbours, friends and family members, to say we stand with you,” Egan said, according to The Irish News. Responding to Egan, Kennedy baselessly claimed that the concept of conversion therapy had been “manufactured”. He also said people who experience “unwanted same sex attraction” should have the right to “life changing therapies”.
