Time ticking, New Jersey governor silent on reparative therapy bill

There’s still no word from New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie as to whether he will sign a bill banning reparative therapy for sexually confused children. 

Gov. Christie has openly stated he believes homosexuals are born in that condition, although there is no science to prove it. But he is strong on parental rights.

Greg Quinlan of New Jersey Family First tells OneNewsNow that the law is dangerous to parents and their children.

“This bill bans heterosexual-affirming therapy by only allowing-homosexual affirming therapy to minor children who are still not emotionally developed, whose brains are not developed until they're 25 years of age,” he says. “This is why this bill is so bad.Quinlan, Greg (NJ Family First)

In addition, if parents want therapy for a child who is sexually confused, they would be prevented from obtaining it and counselors would be barred from providing it.

“It denies parents,” says Quinlan. “It wrecks the client-caregiver relationship, and it robs a child of the truth and the information they need to make an informed choice about their sexuality and who they are, who God made them to be.”

Quinlan urges New Jersey residents to contact Gov. Christie who can sign the bill, veto it or let it go into law without his signature by the August 11th deadline.

If it goes into law, a lawsuit will be filed to challenge it as is the case with a similar California law.
