Weekend read: Gay conversion: Might the CMF have a point?

Iain Brassington is a lecturer in bioethics in Manchester, and he occasionally blogs for the Journal of Medical Ethics. Back in February, he wrote a brilliant post taking on the Christian Medical Fellowship’s arguments about gay conversion “therapy”. It’s nice to see someone rehearse a whole argument explaining why gay conversion “therapy” is nonsensical: the arguments are largely obvious, but sometimes I think people are too ready to shoot others down without at least trying to explain their logical fallacies.
