Republican governor vs. 'ex-gay' snake oil

by Jeremy Hooper

Of course the truth is that this likely makes Gov. Christie more viable as a candidate. Most of America doesn't even know what the "ex-gay" movement is. When they learn about the movement, most people (even those who vote against our rights) see it as bizarre, at best.
