The New York Times weighs on the Love in Action controversy. Of course, the expert they quote is Jack Drescher, one of the most consistent critics of reorientation therapy. No one was interviewed that actually does reorientation therapy. Such selective use of experts is typical of the Times.
John Smid gives a good interview and discussion of the situation. With the Exodus Conference coming up this week (Tuesday through Saturday), there may be more on this story through this coming week.
