FULL TITLE: Gay men and their moms sue Jewish conversion therapy center that promised to turn them straight - and failed

A group of gay men and their moms are suing a Jewish therapy center in New Jersey that claims to turn homosexuals straight.

The lawsuit charges that the center, Jews Offering New Alternatives for Healing (JONAH), is guilty of consumer fraud for failing to quell the homosexual urges of its clients, as it had promised.

Arthur Goldberg, JONAH's co-director, and Alan Downing, a 'life coach' who counsels therapy sessions, were also named in the suit. Goldberg did not return MailOnline's phone calls on Tuesday and the center provided no contact information for Downing.

The therapy sessions, which cost up to $100 weekly, sometimes involved clients and counselors undressing in front of each other, according to the lawsuit.

I'd say the reason it did not work were because of the center's "healing methods".

Maybe the Center should have told them to be cured they need to go back to their Iman, (is that what the spiritual leader is called?), and tell him. Guaranteed he will be cured.

They're probably suing them because it was working. The homosexual activists pulled even worse stuff with the American Psychiatric Association to get homosexuality of the DSM book of psychological disorders.

Also, these might also be Orthodox Jews who are targeted. The Left hates them most of all because of their political Conservatism and opposition to homosexuality and abortion.

Levin, 23, is now a gay rights advocate and blogger. He said he was sexually abused as a boy and that he felt confused about his sexuality,

So he's saying he WASN'T born that way?????

I think the other thread did say one of the complaints was that one of the patients hasn’t been able to ‘have a relationship with another man’ for a year.

The stuff they are claiming that the treatments consisted of is truly weird creepy goings-on anyhow.

Southern Poverty Law Center sues after reparative therapy does not change teens’ sexual orientation
by Family Research Center
Nov 29, 2012

November 29, 2012, (Family Research Council) — With its credibility drying up, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is determined to cement its status as the homosexual movement’s greatest ally. Desperate to regain its status in the civil rights debate, the group is following the money to the gay community, where it hopes the partnership will help SPLC regain some of the legitimacy it lost bullying mainstream conservatives. Their latest attempt to claw their way back into the spotlight is a lawsuit aimed at destroying the ex-gay movement.

This week, SPLC announced that it is suing a Jewish organization called JONAH (Jews Offering New Alternatives of Healing) for consumer fraud. They allege that the therapy, which is designed to bring homosexuals out of bondage and into healthy behavior, failed.

... SPLC and friends are frantically trying to shut down therapy like this because it disproves their entire argument that homosexuality — like race — is innate and thus, healthy and normal. If men and women with same-sex attractions can be freed, it destroys the Left’s foundational concept that gay rights are civil rights. ...

The left-leaning American Psychological Association (APA) says there is “no sufficiently scientifically sound evidence that sexual orientation can be changed.”

But the APA isn’t claiming that there’s no evidence change is possible — only that the evidence out there is “not sufficiently scientifically sound.” In other words, it doesn’t meet all the criteria for “gold standard” social science research: random samples, a prospective and longitudinal design, and use of a control group.

Of course, a lot of pro-homosexual social science research doesn’t meet those standards. And even when studies do meet that criteria (like Mark Regnerus’s recent (2012) homosexual parenting study), the Left races to discredit them.

More and better research would be great — but the same people who say the research is inadequate also adamantly oppose doing more studies on the topic.

In this lawsuit, SPLC also strongly suggests that reorientation therapy is not only ineffective, but harmful. What’s their evidence for that? Well, it’s entirely anecdotal —the same kind of evidence they refuse to accept with regard to the effectiveness of the therapy.

The SPLC is a heterophobic hate group.

That is the idea, isn't it? Men are supposed to have relationships with women -- not other men! Men having sex with men is a deadly perversion.
