Aug 23, 2013 | Posted by: Rick in Kansas | Full story: www.nj.com

New Jersey's newly-enacted ban on gay-to-straight conversion therapy for minors violates a licensed therapist's obligation to "respect the rights of clients to make decisions," according to a federal lawsuit filed by a Christian counselors group and professionals who use the practice.

I foresee a trial reminiscent of Judge Walker's Prop 8 trial. Do these people never learn? This could be really really bad for the ex-gay movement.

I wonder if NJ courts allow video taping?

It is a cash cow religious rednecks will not put out to pasture until a few of their sorry homophobic a$$es are guillotined on the public square

So if I understand all this, these people say that Jesus is curing all these people of homosexuality. That faith in God has saved them.

Yet it looks like all these ex gays don't have enough faith in their ministry to show up for the March on Washington!

It's always the same dodge. The ex gay groups claim that the reason no one sees any of these people is because they are afraid of the threats from other gays. If that's the case then why did they plan a march and claim for 6 weeks they had already had thousands of bookings?

From what I can see, gays and lesbians have more guts and pride in who we are than ex gays do.

But even their leaders admit they aren't really ex gays. They don't like labels.

Well then why are they worried about the homosexualk label being used by others?

The double talk and hypocrisy is astounding.
