In case anyone is running low on reasons to detest the authoritarian moonbat Chris Christie:
Gov. Chris Christie signed a bill Monday barring licensed therapists from trying to turn gay teenagers straight, making New Jersey the second state to ban so-called conversion therapy, along with California.
The bill’s sponsor is Assemblyman Tim Eustace, who unsurprisingly is openly homosexual.
In a note accompanying the bill, Christie said he believes people are born gay and that homosexuality is not a sin. That view is inconsistent with his Catholic faith, which teaches that homosexual acts are sins.
It is also inconsistent with scientific evidence that people are not born homosexual, any more than they are born grotesquely obese like Christie. But it is easy to see why left-wing political figures would want to pretend individuals do not have free will.
What is less easy is to reconcile the wistful notion that this is still a free country with the fact that in some states it is illegal to counsel children with psychosexual problems because our ruling class is aggressively promoting homosexuality for political purposes.
Given the high rate of suicide among youth suffering from these maladies, it is not only perverse but cruel in the extreme to outlaw treatment. But as the homosexual adoption issue has proven, hard core liberals are perfectly willing to sacrifice kids to their ideology — and despite his party affiliation, Christie is a liberal in the most destructive sense.
