Predictably, Liberty Counsel claims that Gov. Christie "harms children"

Earlier today, the New Jersey governor signed the law that bans conversion "therapy" for minors.

Liberty Counsel (the rabidly anti-gay hate group associated with Liberty University) announced in a press release that they will now file suit to block the law. According to Mat Staver:

This bill is so broad that parents would be prohibited from seeking help for their son who developed unwanted same-sex attractions after being molested by the likes of Jerry Sandusky. Counselors would only be allowed to affirm these unwanted feelings as good and normal. This is absurd and dangerous. This law would inflict serious damage to children, parents, and counselors.
Rubbish. First of all, children do not become gay because of molestation.  Secondly, an abused child could (and should) get needed professional counseling. Nothing in the law prohibits treatment for sexual abuse.
