The so-called "ex-gay therapy" center being sued by gay men who paid the counselors to attempt to change their sexual orientation vowed it would continue to "assist those with unwanted same-sex attractions." Four former JONAH clients, who were teens when they signed up for help, filed a consumer fraud lawsuit against JONAH and two of its counselors Tuesday, saying they were defrauded by JONAH's claim that "being gay is a mental disorder" that could be reversed by conversion therapy -- "a position rejected by the American Psychiatric Association four decades ago," the lawsuit said.
