The Exodus web site features a press release penned late last week by Warren Throckmorton.
Instead of explaining or defending the odd language and overly optimistic claims of the LA Times ex-gay ad, Throckmorton singles out two of the ad’s sloppiest critics — LAT columnist Steve Lopez and the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD). Both critics trivialized the content of the ads and retreated instead to tired cliches.
I could have written better criticisms of the ad than those of Lopez and GLAAD; in fact, I did.
Instead of addressing some very real problems with the ad, Exodus takes potshots over trivialities.
