A formal announcement from the Mormon Church apologizing for “gay conversion” therapy

Brigham Young University (owned and operated by the LDS Churched) engaged in electroshock therapy in an attempt order to 'cure' young men and young women of homosexuality. Young men were jolted with painful electric shocks to the penis when shown pornographic images of men.
Homosexuals were seen as a "prurient, expendable population," according to Cameron. "To admit homosexuality in 1976 was the kiss of death. You could be targeted, lose your job, lose your income, lose everything." (MormonThink.com)
And those weren't the only attempted cures that were used in that era. Others allege they were given chemical compounds, which were administered through an IV and caused subjects to vomit when they were stimulated.
We need an apology from the church, written to those who were involved, including their families and loved ones. We need the Mormon Church to let it’s members know what occurred, and be truthful about it. We need justice for those involved, and for LGBTQ people alike.
