Dr. Warren Throckmorton writes on his blog:

The National Association for the Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH) Conference is this coming weekend in Phoenix, AZ and will feature, Sharon Slater, a prominent leader in efforts to work through UN delegations to keep homosexuality illegal around the world. NARTH refuses to oppose criminalization but has invited Slater who works to maintain it. Seems to me NARTH is complicit in these efforts and should be held accountable.

I agree with Dr. Throckmorton that NARTH is a political organization — not  a scientific one — that has close ties to shady characters like Dr. Michael Brown and Sharon Slater.
