      As I understand it, the law doesn’t have any punishment attached; it leaves that to the therapist’s professional organization.

      So what does the law actually DO that couldn’t be done without it? Such organizations already have the right to toss people out for unethical practice, do they not?

      @hyhybt: The problem,hyhybt, is that many of these monsters,in many places are recognized[bought their way into?] their professional organizations as ethical,effective practitioners.It’s like professionally authorized therapeutic brain-washing,torture Similar to “Re-Education camps in Cuba,orChina,or Nazi Aryanization of untermenschen.

      @Guillermo3: …in which case, the new law is worthless, because it leaves punishment in the hands of the organizations you claim have been bought off.

      Why does it so consistently happen, when I ask questions, that people “answer” them with statements that don’t even address the question I actually asked?

      Nothing weird about a stay until review.

      I’m confused about something – why was there a stay order for this but none for Proposition 8?

      @jwrappaport: Perhaps because P8 was a constitutional amendment, and therefore presumed constitutional? Perhaps because weddings held after its passage would be too questioned?
