George Rekers Resigns from NARTH

NARTH, the infamous homophobic group that claims it can de-gay gays, issued this announcement:

NARTH Responds to the
Recent Media Coverage of Dr. George Rekers

"I am immediately resigning my membership in NARTH to allow myself the time necessary to fight the false media reports that have been made against me. With the assistance of a defamation attorney, I will fight these false reports because I have not engaged in any homosexual behavior whatsoever. I am not gay and never have been." --George A. Rekers, Ph.D.

NARTH has accepted Dr. Rekers' resignation and would hope that the legal process will sufficiently clarify the questions that have arisen in this unfortunate situation. We express our sincere sympathy to all individuals, regardless of their perspective, who have been injured by these events. We also wish to reiterate our traditional position that these personal controversies do not change the scientific data, nor do they detract from the important work of NARTH. NARTH continues to support scientific research, and to value client autonomy, client self-determination and client diversity.
Blah blah blah! The "truth" is that Georgie got caught with his cock in the cookie jar and his whole raison d'etra for being with this bogus group just flew out the window.  Don't let the door kit you on the way out Doc!
