    Christie will sign bill that bans gay conversion therapy

    .

    Even a broken clock is correct twice a day.

    Gay conversion therapy is a controversial practice. It became an issue in the 2012 presidential race when gay rights groups accused Marcus Bachmann — the husband of Rep. Michele Bachmann’s (Minn.), a GOP candidate — of trying to convert gay people at a counseling center he owned. Marcus Bachmann denied that he was involved in such therapy.
    Does that mean that the Marquesa is going to return the federal funding that he already has accepted?

    He's running for re-election in a very blue state---so the elephant is on a tightrope doing a balancing act.

    He lost that reelection when he vetoed gay marriage. It's good that he's trying to do some good but he'll be eaten alive by his own.

    Which is really something he's making the taxpayers of New Jersey pay millions for a special election simply so he won't be on the same voting day as Booker.

    Governor Chicken desperately wants to keep his job. He likes being flown around in a helicopter to his kid's ball games. He needs to work harder to enact voter suppression laws like North Carolina and the other republican states are doing.

    Christie is up by +30 points and his Democratic competitor is running an awful, awful campaign.

    maybe I'll eat my words, but I think that (1) there's no way he's going to lose the election short of some major heretofore unseen scandal, and (2) this specific issue isn't even on the radar of NJ voters outside of the gay community, regardless of whether or not he signed the bill.

    funny thing is, the special election isn't because he was worried about losing (see above), he was worried about not winning with a colossal margin (which may have happened if a Booker election pushed up turnout in Jersey City, Newark, and Camden)... I think he's hoping to win by 30+ points in a blue state and have a huge national news story to get him pre-2016 buzz.

    He'll win, but not by 30 points. It is true that he ordered a special election for Senate approximately 20 days before the general election for the sole reason that he was afraid a high turnout of Democratic voters for Booker would keep his margin of victory lower.

    This bill is so scientifically and medically reasonable that it will probably hurt Christie's chances for election to the presidency.

    What is shocking is that only two states now ban the practice. They used to perform clitorectomies on young women in this country at one time to cure them of masturbation or promiscuity. Gay conversion therapy is just a modern equivalent of that practice.

    Bravo to Chris Christie for taking this stand. I agree with Palemale. Gay conversion therapy is a desperate measure by parents and authorities in serious denial. Invasive and abusive.

    Gay conversion therapy is psychological abuse. Every state should ban it.

    That was my thought.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    Meanwhile, as 'phobes are having the sadz about this, Teabagistan is calling those bans "Jery Sanduski" bills. As in - to ban ex-gay therapy is to abuse children.
