Chris Christy banned a controversial method claiming to cure gay children saying, according to Christy it is not a sin to be gay. Mordechai Levovitz says his deeply religious parents forced him into gay conversion therapy at the ripe old age of six. "I was worried in school, wait a second, is my wrist too limp or am I walking a little too girly. I would feel terrible about it." He's one of the young people who lined up to tell their horror stories to New Jersey law makers.
