Albert Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, went on a tear defending the practice of
ex gay conversion therapy, particularly as it applies to children, in his blog post of April 22, 2021.
While trivializing the intensely damaging act of implanting fear and self hatred in gay teenagers as merely wanting
to "...pray that someone would have relief from, holiness in, biblical obedience in, even understanding
a same sex inclination or anything covered under LGBTQ." He adds that "We're talking about basic Christianity".
