Double Talk From Maggie Gallagher

"I don’t back something called 'conversion therapy.' I don’t even really know what conversion therapy is, and I’m not qualified to express an opinion on a particular kind of therapy. I back the right of gay people to seek the kind of counseling help they want, not the kind the SPLC lawyers want them to have, including help to live their sexual lives with integrity, according to their own values, not the SPLC’s values. That’s all." - Maggie Gallagher, writing for the National Review.

RELATED: The SPLC is suing JONAH, a New Jersey-based "ex-gay" group whose therapy included telling young men to expose and fondle their genitals in the presence of a totally not gay anymore counselor. Because that gets the patient in touch with his true masculinity. Maggie can call it whatever the fuck she wants, but that IS the group she is backing.  She is the chair of their legal defense team.
