Judge Slams Ex-Gay Conversion Therapy As A Bunch Of B.S.

Sheraton court rulingAdvocates for conversion therapy just had their asses handed to them by a local judge in New Jersey.

Judge Peter Bariso Jr. of the Hudson County Superior Court ruled this week that likening homosexuality to a “mental illness, disease, disorder, or equivalent thereof” and suggesting it’s curable is fraud.

The ruling came after the Southern Poverty Law Center sued the hate group, Jews Offering New Alternatives for Healing (JONAH), for violating the state’s Consumer Fraud Act when it advertised services that could change a person’s sexuality.

According to Slate, the services JONAH offered required patients to pay $100 to strip down in front of “therapist” Alan Downing, then fondle their penises and butts while he watched. Doing this, Downing told patients, would help them turn straight. (This is me rolling my eyes from Owerri to Ouagadougou)But Judge Bariso wasn’t having any of it. This week, he ruled that “the general consensus in the mental health field is that homosexuality is not a mental disorder, but is instead a normal variation of human sexuality.” He also called out JONAH on its bogus “success statistics,” telling the group “there is no factual basis for calculating such statistics.”

David Dinielli, Southern Poverty Law Center’s deputy legal director, called the ruling “monumental and devastating to the conversion therapy industry.”

“For the first time, a court has ruled that it is fraudulent as a matter of law for conversion therapists to tell clients that they have a mental disorder that can be cured,” he said. “This is the principal lie the conversion therapy industry uses throughout the country to peddle its quackery to vulnerable clients.”

“Gay people don’t need to be cured,” Dinielli added, “and we are thrilled that the court has recognized this.”

Yes o, gay people do not also need to be taken to TB Joshua and thrown into a swimming pool of women to turn them straight.

  1. He also called out JONAH on its bogus “success statistics,” telling the group “there is no factual basis for calculating such statistics.”

    Anybody think another group of people need this?

  2. Fiddling with their penises? Hope he was saying #NoHomo while at it cos that is the gayest shit I have ever heard in the history of conversion therapies.

  3. “According to Slate, the services JONAH offered required patients to pay $100 to strip down in front of “therapist” Alan Downing, then fondle their penises and butts while he watched. Doing this, Downing told patients, would help them turn straight.”

    That right there is the punch line of this piece. That right there is my morning humor.

  4. No NO NO! The therapist got it all wrong: when u’re curing gay men,u don’t just “watch” while they strip and fondle their dicks and butts; u roll up ur sleeves and get in there…YOU(the therapist) do d fondling yourself, that way u transfer the essence of ur “straightness” into the gay guys’ cocks and cakes FOREVER..this is standard conversion procedure,no?I thought everybody knew this already…*bewildered at the ineptitude*

  5. Hmm.

    “Hello, Secretary, please cancel my appointment with Prophet TB; the anointed man of God. There’s been a change in plans.”

  6. Oh no! Judge why? These times when people are encouraged to be innovative by creating alternative means of income to reduce the rate of unemployment you are declaring the innovation of some crooks sorry business men as illegal and fraudulent. God is watching.
