Sorting Out the Spitzer Study

Daniel Gonzales over at Ex-Gay Watch along with film maker Esteban Rael, have put together a well done and absolutely essential video about the Spitzer Report.

A study of gay conversion therapy released by Dr. Robert Spitzer in 2001 sent shockwaves through the American media despite serious methodological concerns. This video examines those concerns and goes on to examine how the study has been abused by anti-gay political organizations such as James Dobson’s Focus on the Family to promote anti-gay public policy

There is a nice summary at the end and some fun about 2/3 through. You can read a full transcript of the video here.
