Gays Sue Over "Conversion Therapy"
When young Sheldon Bruck told his parents he was gay, they sent him to JONAH, or Jews Offering New Alternatives for Healing, a “conversion therapy” camp that attempts to help people struggling with “unwanted same-sex attractions.” For the price of several thousand dollars, JONAH attempted to fix this “mental disorder” (their words) using such techniques as stripping naked in a group and calling the young man a “faggot” (again their words). Basically he paid 10 grand to pretend he was on a high school lacrosse team. Of course this therapy didn’t take, and now Bruck is gayer than ever. (I don’t know if that’s true, but what the hell, let’s just go with it.) Bruck’s family has teamed up with Chaim Levin, Benjamin Unger and Michael Ferguson, three other conversion school dropouts. They are suing JONAH, claiming that they were deceived into paying for something that couldn’t possibly be delivered.
