NEW YORK (AP) Four gay men accused a New Jersey organization of fraud Tuesday for selling "conversion therapy" with false promises to make them straight.

They said during a Manhattan news conference that they were subjected to humiliations that included stripping naked and taking a baseball bat to effigies of their mothers.

The four attended sessions at the Jersey City, N.J.-based Jews Offering New Alternatives to Healing, or JONAH. The nonprofit advertises in Jewish publications and claims to rid men of same-sex attractions.

The four say the methods do not work and should not be marketed under New Jersey's consumer protection laws. JONAH did not return calls requesting comment.

1. Are these shysters

licensed by the State? New Jersey's Consumer Fraud law pays up to triple damages. Take their money.

3. Hitting effigies of their mothers with baseball bats?

See, I'm always saying that the root of homophobia is misogyny. Sounds like the "therapists" were trying to convince these young men that their mothers made them gay. That's an old myth. Beating up your mother because you're gay is a new twist.

These so-called ex-gay therapists are sick and should be in jail.
