Here We Go: Over 1,000 UK Church Leaders Prepared to Be Jailed Over ‘Conversion Therapy’ Ban

More than 1,000 church leaders and ministers across the United Kingdom say they will continue to proclaim “the Lordship of Jesus Christ” and call “people to find life in Him”, even if it means they will go to prison.

According to Christian Concern, 1,400 pastors have signed a petition asking the government to strike down a proposal that would ban so-called conversion therapy.

If passed, the measure could prevent ministers from helping those with unwanted same-sex attraction and could even prevent them from sharing the Gospel.

“It should not be a criminal offense for us to instruct our children that God made them male and female, in his image, and has reserved sex for the marriage of one man and one woman. Yet this seems to be the likely outcome of the proposed legislation,” the petition reads.

The UK government is currently accepting proposals on how to legislate the ban. As CBN News has reported, the Evangelical Alliance believes an “expansive definition” of conversion therapy could restrict religious freedoms and “place church leaders at risk of prosecution.”
