Rachel Maddow Explains Why Ex-Gay Apology Destroys Prop 8′s Standing
Rachel Maddow is hot on Unicorn Booty’s biggest story of the week, Dr. Robert Spitzer’s recanting of the entire Ex-Gay Therapy study and apology for essentially making the entire thing up.
Always one to connect the dots, Maddow and Kenji Yoshino hop right into the beef; The argument to ban same-sex marriage in California stood largely on evidence that LGBT people could switch their sexual orientation at will, and marry opposite-sex partners.
Dr. Spitzer’s landmark Ex-Gay Therapy study is quoted over and over again in the Prop 8 case. But now that Spitzer has admitted he made the whole thing up, shouldn’t the entire Prop 8 case be invalidated?
Take it from here, Rachel!
Very, very interesting.
