Maggie Gallagher Is Furious With Chris Christie For Banning Conversion Therapy [UPDATED]

If two people ever deserved each other, it’s Chris Christie and Maggie Gallagher. The New Jersey governor and the co-founder of the National Organization for Marriage are not renowned for their smooth social skills, Even though Christie is the only obstacle to marriage equality in New Jersey, that’s not good enough for Maggie. She’s now furious with the governor for signing a bill banning conversion therapy for minors.

“The new law communicates to gays and lesbians seeking to conform their lives to their values that they are second-glass [sic] citizens, without the same right to seek help that other people enjoy. It is a right of self-determination that Gov. Christie has shut down,” Gallagher said in a statement that might just as well have been written on a cocktail napkin from the corner bar.

Gallagher has been diversifying into conversion therapy and is chair of Freedom of Conscience Defense, which supports a conversion therapy outfit being sued in New Jersey for consumer fraud. She clearly sees the new law as a threat to that case, even though the law applies only to minors.

“Governor Christie’s decision today violates the individual drive of men and women who no longer want to be tormented by unwanted homosexual desires,” Gallagher complained. “They are adults and should be free to seek out help for themselves with government interference.”

No response from Christie yet, but it would be a lot of fun to see these two titans get into it.

UPDATE: Gallagher now says she did not approve the statement blasting Christie, claiming it was released “by staff error and without my approval. These are not my words or my sentiments.” Funny, but it sure sounded like vintage Maggie. Gallagher says she will read the new bill “carefully before I issue any statement, if I do.”  We would love to hear the full story behind this little drama.

    Someone should tell her that no one has outlawed Weight Watchers yet. She should be happy that fat ingnorant pigs are still permitted to live and stuff another pork chop in her craw and shut the *** up!

    I really still think Gallagher and Scalia are evil step siblings, but that’s another story. Gallagher complained, “They are adults and should be free to seek out help for themselves with(out*) government interference.” I don’t think dipstick used the right word in her rant, but then she doesn’t follow the rules in grammar and spelling either, much less social graces.

    Do you think the reason for her whale like grandeur is because she’s a chronic comfort eater. In that she literally eats her enemies.

    It’s hard to even say anything that hasn’t being said about her ridiculous ideals, her stupid beliefs and her frankly leukemia causing visage.

    @Dakotahgeo: Do you think they’re the same person?

  • balehead

    Gluttony and Sloth have awful opinions?……cue the surprise…

  • sanfranca1

    @richybruce: Yes!

  • LaTeesha

    They could settle it with a sumo wrestle.

  • Dakotahgeo

    @2eo: ROFLMBO!!! I have problems even comprehending Krispy as a man, much less a cross dresser, lolol. Ohhhhhh, the joy… the suspense! Thanks for my REALLY big laugh for today! Kudos!

  • erasure25

    Is that pic of MG above “altered” to make her look skinnier? Say a reduction of 20% in the width aspect?

  • Polaro

    Hmmm, are we really sure she is a woman? Looks a little off to me. Well, besides the bloat.

  • Dakotahgeo

    @erasure25: Even WITH a 20% cheat, she still merits a “Wide Load” warning sign!

  • lovesickbilly

    This woman is a Dawn French sketch waiting to happen.

  • BigWoody

    I just LUUUUV her ‘hair don’t’, lol. The style really accentuates her bulbous neck.

  • 2eo

    After releasing her updated statement she was later snapped at the local Nascar event.

  • philipj999

    Just wondering…when they are together do they form their own solar system. You know planetary bodies with orbiting satellites. I understand it is a matter of gravity created by mass.

  • D9W

    @2eo- I think she’s just a jilted cow _ _ _ hag. I bet if someone was to really look into her past she had a number of ex- that turned out to be gay, and this is her way to try to get them back. Can you say Mooo…

  • GlitterKidder

    Again I ask, why do we give a rat’s ass what this fat [email protected] has to say about anything? This is not news & she is wasting all of our time…

  • hf2hvit

    Maybe they should wire up her tits and shock her with 50,000volts everytime she puts herself in front of the pig trough.

  • boring

    The lack of creativity in this comments section is staggering.

  • randalaw

    When she dies, they’ll give her an enema and bury her in a shoebox.

  • OutnProud

    Her getting furious was probably the first exercise she’s gotten in a while. She might wanna take it easy because she could probably over exert herself and wind up in the hospital for it

    For her to say that LGBTQ people are “2nd class” citizens because of what they do in/with their lives is ridiculous. In doing so she’s making it sound like that straight people are a “cut above” or “superior.”

  • Scott Rose

    There is a typographical error in the term “Maggot Gagginwhore” in the above post.

  • Charles175

    Aside from all the pig in a poke jokes, there is a truth. A truth that these and those like them may or may not be aware of. The truth is every country, every state that has passed marriage equality has never looked back. There is a good reason for this. And the reason is that after passage in these regions none of the dire predictions made by religious folks have come true. As long as their predictions do not come true, the ball of marriage equality will roll on. This is the reason why they continue to put out crazier and crazier BS about us. They are desperate.

  • Teleny

    The sight of Chris Chris or Maggie naked could change the sexual orientation of anyone in an instant. Bisexuals would adopt celibacy.

  • Kenover

    I always though Maggie Gallagher was Chris Christie in drag. I mean, think about it. The resemblance is striking and you never see the two of them together.

  • J.c.

    @LaTeesha: LMAO! PERFECT solution! Kudos!

  • 1EqualityUSA

    whale watching

  • Dakotahgeo

    “Wide Load” Gallagher!

  • Garth

    She has one awful case of bloat … bless her heart.
