Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH), last week blamed the rise of “gayria law” for shutting down a New Jersey nonprofit that offered to turn gays to heterosexuals.

Last month, a judge agreed with four plaintiffs who accused Jews Offering New Alternatives for Healing (JONAH) of peddling therapies that violate the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act and ordered its closure. However, the group has already announced the formation of a new organization with a similar focus.

LaBarbera lamented the closure during an appearance on Janet Mefferd's radio program.

“What the media does is they say, 'Oh this reparative therapy harms people,'” LaBarbera said. “But they don't focus on the people who are helped. It would be like finding somebody who is in a drug rehab program and it failed and he said, 'See these drug rehab programs are fraudulent.'”

“This effort to squelch dissent is just extraordinary,” he continued, “and I think it is really unique to the homosexual movement … I'm calling it gayria law. We talk about Sharia law, but I think the bigger danger right now in America is gayria law. It's this all-encompassing drive, this totalitarian drive to enforce gay power everywhere, and it's growing.”
