Any excuse will do for Mat Staver and Liberty Counsel

Mat Staver
Mat Staver, head of the anti-gay hate group Liberty Counsel, has just sent out an email with the subject: “Scientific Research Debunks LGBT Propaganda.” Staver is yet another imbecile who thinks that Paul McHugh's meta-study means anything. At the risk of being repetititve, McHugh is a staunch orthodox Catholic. This is a meta-study (a study of studies). It is published to what is essentially a Catholic blog and it is not peer reviewed. In other words it is junk science per se.

The following professional organizations concur that sexual orientation is innate and immutable and that efforts to change sexual orientation are ineffective and potentially dangerous:

  • American Academy of Pediatrics
  • American Counseling Association
  • American Association of School Administrators
  • American Federation of Teachers
  • American Medical Association
  • American Psychological Association
  • American Psychiatric Association
  • American School Health Association
  • American Sociological Association
  • Interfaith Alliance Foundation
  • National Association of School Psychologists
  • National Association of Social Workers
  • National Education Association
Hmm, who to believe? McHugh or the AMA?
