I haven’t read the report, so I don’t know whether DM’s criticisms are accurate. The tone of the criticisms is moderate compared to typical religious-right rhetoric. Some of the criticisms are specific, while others are quite vague. Some of DM’s observations of moderation in the exgay movement are accurate, but overly optimistic: Let’s face it, the movement is led by would-be theocrats, and the moderates are not only allowing that leadership to happen, but also providing annual donations to the leadership.
