Chris Christie Confirms He Opposes Gay Conversion Therapy

Bill to ban the practice working its way through the legislature

|

Under pressure from Democrats, Gov. Chris Christie on Thursday said he opposes the controversial use of "gay conversion therapy," but he did not stake a position on a bill that would ban the practice.

The Republican governor's announcement came one day after he said he didn't know enough about the issue to comment — and hours after Democratic challenger Barbara Buono slammed his indecision as "disgusting" and the Democratic Governors Association, calling Christie "extremist," used it as a way to raise money.
