So CNN political commentator and author Roland Martin thinks the good ole' electric shock or excessive prayer and bible study can do away with the gay? I want to believe that the progressive and intelligent individual he presents himself to be would know that reparative therapy doesn't work and is actually harmful.
In an interview from August of 2008 journalist Max Blumenthal asks Martin about a column he wrote a couple of years prior about a gay man from Martin's church who with the help of Martin's wife, a minister, was able to "walk away from his homosexual lifestyle".
Blumenthal recently discussed the Martin dust-up as a guest on The Michelangelo Signorile Show.
I'm holding out on passing judgement on this one, but you can feel free to weigh in with your thoughts.
