New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie signed a law barring licensed therapists from trying to turn gay teenagers straight. Christie said the health risks of trying to change a child’s sexual orientation, as identified by the American Psychological Association, trump parental choice in this case. Christie reiterated his belief that people are born gay and that homosexuality is not a sin, a view inconsistent with his Catholic faith. In June, the leader of Exodus International, a Christian ministry that worked to help people repress same-sex attraction, announced the closing of Exodus (AP).
