The Real Purpose of Therapy Bans

Following the criticism levelled at X Factor Malta contestant Matthew Grech, Ivan Grech Mintoff has made clear his political party’s intention to seek the court’s help in reviewing this matter.  Details of the concerns he raises are explored in the “Exodus” programmes which he presents on Maltese TV.

Exodus Programme 6 in the current series that aired earlier this month has looked at this issue in the context of freedom of conscience, speech and expression.  The programme asked guests to comment on the X Factor case. Dr Mike Davidson was one of those invited and he spoke about the work of Core Issues Trust and some of the legal challenges that have concerned us over the years.  In particular, mention is made of the recognition gained in 2014, when judges reflected on the intervention of then UK Minister of Women and Equalities Maria Millar’s lawyers on the position of “ex-gay” in relation to equality law and the UK’s Equality Act of 2010.
