Just In Time For Tonight's Oscars

Report or Opinion Whitepaper?
Who really knows but those who write the "report" and those who write about the "report" ... it is just curious that the source and the timing of the exposure of the sources unscientific or unstatistical opinion could be suspect.

Report: Gay Prevention Programs Harm Teens
By LAURA WIDES-MUNOZ, Associated Press Writer Sat Mar 4, 2:17 AM ET

MIAMI - A national gay and lesbian group is accusing several religious organizations of harming homosexual teens by offering parents what they say are bogus therapies to keep children from becoming gay.

In a report released Thursday in Miami Beach, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Policy Institute questioned whether the therapies are ethical or effective and said state and federal authorities should provide greater oversight when these programs are aimed at youth.

Again, the report, and the article about the report, do nothing to substantiate the claim made by the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Policy Institute.

If this is OPINION ... then label it as opinion as opposed to someone issuing a "Report". Please do not insult us with agenda, let alone a timed agenda.

And The Winner Is...?
