Crackpot "Ex-Gay" Leader Dies

Dean Byrd, former president of the discredited anti-gay NARTH (National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality), has died at the age of 64.
Byrd was the foremost proponent of the so-called reparative therapy among Mormons. In a post on the group’s website on his death, NARTH called him, “a true clinical pioneer paving the way for many others in the treatment of unwanted homosexual attractions. He had been a member of the NARTH Board of Directors for more than a decade and made a tremendous contribution to the early work in establishing NARTH as a reliable scientific and research organization.”
