Letter: ‘Religion and state should be separate’

June 14, 2022

I have just read the very enlightening article on the Rogue Retreat and conversion therapy. Thank you for this. I did not know of the connection and the use of public funds used in this very inhumane practice.

Over the past year I have registered Rogue Retreat with my Amazon account so that it would be my charity for a percentage of purchases. I have now canceled that. 

I believe that religion and state should be separate. This idea of conversion has been scientifically debunked. I will not be a part of such practices.

Thank you again for the article.
