Republican governor vs. 'ex-gay' snake oil

by Jeremy Hooper

Anti-LGBT social conservatives are already saying that this has ruined his 2016 chances:

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. When presented with the facts of credible science, there is simply no defense for programs that claim to "cure" something that cannot and should not be prayed or therapized away.

I give you credit here, Gov. Christie. Now about that whole marriage thing...
