Magellan Health Drops 'Ex-Gay' Therapist From Advisory Panel
Magellan dropped Warren Throckmorton, of the Christian Grove City College, because he mixes religion with matters of behavioral health science. His views are simply "too controversial" for them. And that's putting it mildly!
The so-called 'ex-gay' industry festers with fraud, ethical violations, and pseudoscience. Throckmorton is one of its loudest proponents. Now Throckmorton and the bizarre 'ex-gay' organization known as P-FOX are organizing a hate campaign against Magellan Health. In articles appearing in the American Family Association propaganda organ, Agape Press, and on a right wing website known as Mens News Daily, they are completely mischaracterizing the circumstances surrounding Magellan's rejection of Throckmorton. They're inventing stories claiming that Magellan's "discriminates" against the 'ex-gay' community and organizing a hate mail campaign against them.
Let's neutralize the hate campaign by sending letters of support to Magellan Health. Congratulate them for maintaining ethical and professional standards. Tell them you appreciate their removal of a representative of an unethical and fradulent industry from their organization.
Copies of your letter will go to the administration and psychology faculty of Grove City College as well as to representatives of P-FOX.
Write to Magellan Health.
