Putting a 'Pfffft!' to the PFOX 'win'

by Jeremy Hooper

We've been really annoyed with the way various outlets have repurposed a new PFOX (Parents And Friends of Ex-Gays) press release as if it were even remotely based in fact. And all day long, we've been meaning to get to the matter, hoping to find the time to give it the proper vetting that it deserves.

Fortunately our pal Timothy Kincaid has spared us the trouble. Head over to Box Turtle Bulletin for an explanation of why PFOX's supposed legal "victory" is nothing of the sort:
