(PARAMUS) - Assemblyman Timothy J. Eustace, D.C. (D-Bergen/Passaic) on Tuesday voiced his strong support of a lawsuit filed against a Jersey City-based conversion counseling organization that claims to be able to cure men of homosexual tendencies.
"The bravery and determination of the four men and their families seeking damages against a Jersey City-based conversion counseling group should be applauded. If what they allege in their complaint is true, then these young men most assuredly did not receive counseling. Instead, it would seem they were conned into paying to be tortured because of their sexual orientation."
Eustace is the prime sponsor of legislation in the Assembly (A-3371) that would prohibit the sexual orientation conversion of minors in New Jersey. The legislation cites the American Psychoanalytic Association's June 2012 position statement that conversion counseling is "...against fundamental principles of psychoanalytic treatment and often result[s] in substantial psychological pain by reinforcing damaging internalized attitudes."

"As soon as you step into the lake on foot or in a boat, you're in the state's domain. I feel bad for the snake, and I hope it gets rescued before it dies when it gets cold. It didn't mean to get let out there. This snake should be one thing we can get together on and not worry about party affiliation. Unless the snake's a Democrat." - Republican Mount Arlington Mayor Arthur Ondish- PolitickerNJ
