"The mistake I made in that review is the same one NARTH makes in their recent paper and that this website makes. In my review, I summarized every study or anecdote I could find on reorientation without regard for the quality of the research methods (e.g., sampling, design, etc.). There are so many problems with the early research, most notably the absence of control groups, reliance on anecdotes and follow ups that I do not view that review as anything more than suggestive of the need for further research. If anything, I have come to see that efforts to change are most frequently efforts to bring one's behavior and desires in line with religious beliefs or social expectations."
-- Controversial "sexual reorientation counselor" Dr. Warren Throckmorton in a recent critical review of the American College of Pediatricians' Facts About Youth project. Throckmorton calls out the sham medical organization for the religious front group it is and questions the honesty of the project. The faux group's website references his 1998 review of the literature on conversion therapy even though Throckmorton has acknowledged the faults in the study and asked that ex-gay groups stop using it as justification for religious psuedo-science.
