My Invitation from NARTH - Oh My!

Seriously? I'll defer on the solicitation to wreak utter havoc on these crackpots. They like to send HTML email:

The Board of Directors of the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality would like to invite you to consider becoming involved as a seminar or workshop presenter at our 2012 Convention in Orlando Florida.
Each year the convention provides wonderful presentations by leading clinical, academic, and research experts in the field of homosexuality for those who attend. In addition, NARTH is always looking for new therapists and innovative treatment concepts from the related disciplines of therapy, sexuality, addictions, as well as practical ways to assist those with unwanted same-sex attractions and their families.
Below you will find a link to the NARTH web site with the simple presenter application form and more information about the convention.  Please, come join us!
The NARTH Board

It continues to astonish me just how hard NARTH tries to portray itself as a legitimate medical organization rather than the extreme fringe Christianist cult that it really is. I won't link to NARTH but here is the additional information on their website:

Have you ever considered presenting a workshop or seminar at the annual NARTH Convention? This year we will be meeting in Orlando, Florida on Friday November 2 and Saturday November 3 and we would like to invite you to participate. Presentations can cover a wide variety of topics related to unwanted homosexuality, could address either a clinical or a nonprofessional audience, and can vary in length or degree of difficulity.

Some examples of seminars presented at past conventions are (1) a four hour advanced clinical training for therapists (2) a single session – 75 minute – workshop on the importance of pastoral care (3) a general workshop session addressing current scientific research or a workshop examining the findings of a specific new research study (4) a panel discussion on the role of experiential processes in the treatment of lesbian clients.
