Shocker—NJ's top marriage equality opponent backs 'ex-gay' therapy
Whenever marriage equality comes up before the New Jersey state legislature, the man who teams up with the National Organization For Marriage—and who even claims to have helped launch NOM with his donor rolls—is NJ Family Policy Council head Len Deo. So next time that happens, and marriage comes up again in the Garden State (and there will be an again, soon), know that this same Len Deo thinks gays can and should be confronted with the scientifically-repudiated idea that is "ex-gay"ness:
"Once again government is coming in and saying We know better than you do [how] to take care of your family and closing down any opportunity that parents have to have their children involved in this type of psychological counseling," [Len Deo] says.
That is in spite of the fact that the therapy has proven its effectiveness, he notes. The bill also intrudes on a person's right to privacy in making decisions impacting their own life. The Council is encouraging New Jersey residents to contact their elected officials to defeat the bill.
