    Chastity means sexual self control and have nothing whatsoever to do with sexual orientation. The law doesn’t ban treatment for sex addiction.

      However, I think someone should write a report on whether there is a correlation between chastity and obesity. I’m certainly putting on weight.

      Nor does it ban treatment for Gluttony …..

      1. Gluttony, one of the seven deadly sins. Hasn’t killed her yet.

        god must be on a break.

    3. You only have to look at the Catholic Church to see what happens when you remain celibate for too long, right?! Chastity is so0o0o0o awesome…

  2. The fugly witch clearly doesn’t realise that this so called therapy actually does more harm than good and also the fact that the therapy has been debunked by several organisations and science itself.

    But then again she wouldn’t know about seeking out facts.

    1. I’m sure she knows exactly how damaging it is. And a part of me thinks she is pushing for it precisely because it is proven to be harmful to the gay people who are subjected to it.

        She’s been raised in an environment that she’s afraid will shatter if she has to admit that what she and others have done is actually wrong and contradicts all of the things that form the foundation of christianity. So come hell or high water she’s going to keep on pushing back at the tide of change and ignore all the harm she’s continuing to do.

    2. ...Paddyswurds 21 Aug 2013, 11:30pm

      She is clearly too busy stuffing cheap burgers down her neck …

    Why is there a picture of a fat pink hotdog wearing glasses, lipstick and a crap wig?

    1. Paul Essex/London 21 Aug 2013, 5:32pm

      Very constructive!

      1. actually, she is widely known by the nickname “maggiemoo” on American LGBT forums and websites.

        1. She’s more widely known (pun intended) as Slaggie.

          1. I lol’d

    2. Looks more like a decorated thumb to me. :P

  4. Maggie Gallagher has no qualifications to comment on anything related to parenthood. She prattles endlessly about the need for children to be raised by their married, biological parents and yet she was a single mother for years. She’s a hypocrite and a terrible role model since gluttony and sloth are her most prominent characteristics, not very Christian-like.

  5. Paul Essex/London 21 Aug 2013, 5:43pm

    “Not only efforts to change orientation but efforts to change behavior are forbidden, under penalty of law.”

    Ms Gallagher’s view: Homosexuality = Promiscuity

    Says it all really. Yet another ‘christian’ throwing their rattle out of the pram because they can’t sell lies to impressionable and vulnerable young people. Pushing them into a life of guilt and pain that leaves no room to find a partner with which to have a loving relationship, just physical desire (that every human being is born with) which will eventually lead them to sleazy hookups in dangerous and destructive situations. So that you can then use all the crappy situations you’ve caused them to end up in to validate your assertion that homosexuality is wrong and repeat the vicious circle on another generation of victims. Your coming to the end of the tunnel Maggie love, and that light at the end of it is God asking you why you’ve used his name to do so much evil.

    Maggie Gallagher’s younger son Bair Srivastav makes nasty gay-bashing comments on Facebook. Although this has been brought to Maggie Gallagher’s attention more than once, she never has her son’s gay-bashing remarks removed from Facebook. To see one example of Gallagher’s son Bair Srivastav gay-bashing on Facebook, go to this link:

      Why not go to her son and tell him how stupid it is?

  7. Demented religion infested evil blubber bag.
    Sad to see she’s also into advocating child abuse. Is there no depths to which she will not stoop.

  8. So this seems to be this woman’s position –
    1-Religious belief ( assertion without evidence, generally held to be virtuous) and science (no belief without empirical and experimental evidence, and skepticism at all times) are really on the same side;
    2-democratic politicians who protect underage children from baseless guilt-inducing quackery and witchcraft are actually opposed to their human rights.
    A fairly representative view of the values of superstitious religious homophobes.

  9. Oh look, another right-wing Christian nut job to completely ignore.

    Of course, we could enjoy a few hours of insulting this waste of skin first, then eventually dismiss them as another bigot not worthy of the wasted time ;)

  10. If only the ‘help’ really was ‘competent’ and not bad advice offered by a quack

  11. I think she would feel better if she would just dive on some muff the way she was made to do.

    1. Beelzeebub 21 Aug 2013, 9:53pm

      There does seem to be some Ann Widdecombe resemblance in feature and in deed.

  12. Didnt she have her son out of wedlock? The brazen slut!!

    Gluttony is also a sin my dear..

  13. James Savik 21 Aug 2013, 8:50pm

    Ermmm… Maybe you should spend some of time you spend judge others on a thigh-master.

    Just saying.

  14. Beelzeebub 21 Aug 2013, 9:51pm

    I think if I was married to this fat bigot, I would be extremely chaste.

    Her one and only partner pissed of leaving her with child.

    One does not need to wonder why?

    She makes a six figure salary on the hate circuit all approved by her god.

    She is not fit to eat my faeces.

    Vile hateful religion poisoned bitch.

    Too stupid to understand that her bibble hates everything about her.

    A gluttenous whore gaining money judging a section of society.

    “Suffer not. A woman to speak”

    Ignored that bit bitch.

    1. Beelzeebub 21 Aug 2013, 9:55pm

      On Thursdays I’m nice, drink tea and help puppies in there times of trouble.

      This witch rattles my cage….

      1. Christopher Hobe Morrison 24 Aug 2013, 10:31pm

        help puppies in THEIR times of trouble. And don’t forget kittens!

        And don’t be nasty to a lot of nice witches by associating them with her. If you want to throw a bucket of water on her it’s OK!

    2. Christopher Hobe Morrison 24 Aug 2013, 10:28pm

      “She is not fit to eat my faeces.”

      Yes she is! I stuck up for her.

  15. .....Paddyswurds 21 Aug 2013, 11:22pm

    One thing is for sure and thaat is she will have no problem staying Chaste… What a pig… !!

  16. And she has a gay son who won’t take a position on her hate campaign.

  17. “The bill had been met with opposition from Republicans who claimed it that it would take away parents choice on how to raise their children.”

    Conversely does that also mean that these same Republicans would also support the choice of parents who wanted to turn their straight children gay via straight to gay conversion therapy?
    No parents should be allowed to sexually abuse their children by trying to change their natural sexual orientation whether from gay to straight or from straight to gay.

  18. I just can’t take this NOM woman seriously. In this photo, doesn’t she look like a Minion (with a wig) in Despicable Me?

  19. “As of this week, gay conversion therapy is outlawed in the state of New Jersey. Kids who are either gay or suspected of being gay cannot be forced by their parents to endure homophobic corrective therapy, which assemblyman and bill sponsor Tim Eustice correctly calls “an insidious form of child abuse”.”

    http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/aug/21/new-jersey-outlaw-gay-conversion-therapy?

  20. I guess Pink News is censoring my comments here. None of my previous posts have appeared.

  21. Gallagher looks like a Minion in Despicable Me. She’s a joke!

  23. Christopher Hobe Morrison 24 Aug 2013, 10:20pm

    Banned chastity? I suppose it’s worth a try! Normally I believe in freedom of choice but chastity? There must always be limits.

  24. Maggie Gallagher is a crock. I continue to be shocked by her arrogance toward the medical and psychological establishment. And we are supposed to take her word for it? She should be charged with child abuse.
