New Jersey Governor Chris Christie signed a bill this week banning conversion therapy, a controversial practice that tries to change people’s sexual orientation from gay to straight. Christie, a Catholic, said he does not believe homosexuality is a sin. A conservative Christian legal group plans to sue, saying the law infringes on religious freedom. Last year, California became the first state to outlaw conversion therapy, but legal challenges have prevented the law from going into effect.
