Gay Conversion Therapy Has Costly Loss in New Jersey

Gay Conversion Therapy Has Costly Loss in New Jersey

A Jersey City organization says they can convert people from homosexuality. A Hudson County judge says they can’t.

The mission statement of Jews Offering New Alternatives for Healing, or JONAH, says that everyone has the capacity to change of their own free will. The judge ruled that the group’s therapists may be liable for damages done to four young people.

LGBTQ Nation reported that Superior Court Judge Peter Bariso Jr. ruled JONAH may be responsible for three times the cost that the four men paid for more traditional therapy to heal the psychological damage the group had inflicted. “These young men were left with guilt, shame and frustration,” said David Dinelli, deputy legal director of Southern Poverty Law Center, who is handling the lawsuit. “No amount of money can fix the damage JONAH caused.”
