Warren Throckmorton removes the syndicated TV mask, paints actual 'reparative therapy' portrait

by Jeremy Hooper

Warren Throckmorton slams the deliberately softened view that Julie Hamilton and Christopher Doyle put forth on yesterday's "Dr. Oz" show. A snip and a link to the highly-recommended full:

If Doyle and Hamilton really believe what they said on the Oz Show, they displayed a jaw-dropping deficit in self-awareness. In fact, the definition of reparative therapy includes a theory of homosexuality that makes same-sex attraction the result of family dysfunction or childhood sexual abuse. On the program, Hamilton and Doyle seemed to apply their theory to only those men and women they see in counseling. However, when one reads reparative therapy literature, it is clear that they see all homosexual attraction as stemming from dysfunction of one kind or another.
