Dr Warren Throckmorton underwent triple heart bypass surgery on Tuesday, after suffering a heart attack on Sunday. A professor of psychology at Grove City College, PA, Throckmorton has held to a conservative Christian theology while staunchly advocating against the false promises of conversion and reparative therapy, and claims of sexual orientation change. He has also [...]

We all know that Exodus International is undergoing some changes. We knew a major rebranding was coming, following last November’s revelation that America’s leading ex-gay organization had warned its allies it faced social and financial ruin. We’ve seen Chambers’s efforts to present a more open and friendly Exodus to the world — including LGBT Christians [...]
The evangelical media is silent on recent scientific research into sexual orientation, according to Dr Warren Throckmorton. The Grove City College psychology professor says his Christian audience routinely confirms there’s a blackout on up-to-date information on sexuality in the Christian media: They know there is no gay gene but they don’t know about the significant [...]
NARTH founder Joseph Nicolosi, arguably the father of modern reparative therapy, has retracted his claim that a patient was able to change his sexual orientation through an SSRI. In 2009, Dr Nicolosi said his client had made no progress in eight years of therapy, but after a course of Lexapro, a brand of the antidepressant [...]
Although the National Association for the Research and Therapy of Homosexuality promotes itself as a professional organization, mental health professionals make up a mere quarter of its 1,000-strong membership. Dr Warren Throckmorton, a conservative Christian and psychology professor who has become increasingly skeptical of ex-gay “science,” obtained the figures directly from a senior NARTH official: [...]
American evangelical leader Lou Engle has confirmed his support for the leaders who drafted Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Bill 2009. Engle, whose TheCall conference in Uganda promoted the bill that would spell execution for gays and their supporters, told Sarah Posner of Religion Dispatches that he was in favor of “the principle of a nation … restraining [...]
Ugandan MP David Bahati was “ecstatic” that American evangelical leader Lou Engle supported his Anti-Homosexuality Bill 2009, according to journalist Jeff Sharlet. The bill, which would effectively make homosexuality – and “aiding” homosexuality – a capital offense, was promoted heavily at Engle’s TheCall Uganda conference in May this year. More recently, Engle apologized and denied having anything [...]
Scott Lively, the anti-gay activist whose conference appearance precipitated Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Bill 2009, is fighting back against the media’s “character assassination” of him. In an email sent to supporters this week, Lively wrote: Friends, I’m looking for a good Christian media source to interview me on film on the Uganda issue for posting online. I [...]
Warren Throckmorton gets to the heart of Sodom and Gomorrah in his latest blog post: The real sodomite is the arrogant person, the overfed and apathetic person who ignores the poor and others in need. The sexual sins of Sodom are second rate compared to the sins of pride and greed. Ban Sodomy, anyone? Sodomy, [...]
NARTH’s new peer-reviewed study is not new, is not peer-reviewed and is not a study – flaws even one of its authors admitted to Ex-Gay Watch. CitizenLink, the news arm of Focus on the Family, made much of the paper’s appearance earlier this week, faithfully reproducing the immodest claims of NARTH’s press release: A new [...]
