A New Jersey high school senior whose eloquent coming out video has gone viral is challenging Gov. Christie to outlaw "conversion" therapy for gay youth. A Change.org petition originated by Jacob Rudolph, 18, of Parsippany, Morris County, urges the governor to support a bill prohibiting minors from "therapy" programs purported to change homosexuals into heterosexuals. More than 27,000 people have signed the petition so far.
