NARTH revisits the slavery issue

The National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH) is a coalition of psychologists who believe it’s possible to “cure” homosexuality, a position rejected by the American Psychological Association and the American Medical Association. The organization, which is a favorite of the Anglican right, finds itself in the midst of controversy at the moment. A member of its Science Advisory Commitee published an essay on the organization’s Web site arguing that Africans sold into slavery in the United States were in many instances better off than they had been at home.

The Southern Poverty Law Center has the story.
