"Whatever the situation at an individual clinic, accusing professionals from across the country who provide treatment for fully informed persons seeking to change their sexual orientation of perpetrating a fraud serves only to stigmatize the professional and shame the patient."

-- Dr. Nicholas Cummings, defending the scientifically bankrupt and dangerous practice of "ex-gay" therapy in a disgraceful op-ed published by USA Today. Cummings, a past president of the American Psychological Association, failed to disclose his affiliation with notorious "ex-gay" junk science group NARTH.

If you'd like to express your displeasure with USA Today for giving a national platform to harmful and fraudulent "ex-gay" propaganda, you can contact them by phone (703-854-3400), Twitter, Facebook, or their website. (Thanks to David Badash for the information.)
