CNN’s Brooke Baldwin Bitchslaps NARTH’s David Pickup Over “Gay Cure”

On Monday, CNN correspondent Brooke Baldwin brought David Pickup of the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH) to discuss the new California law banning reparative treatment for minors. Above, Baldwin essentially pwns Pickup. (What a name, right?)

It’s great that Baldwin took Pickup to task for his organization’s quackery. You know what’d be ever greater? If legitimate new sources like CNN didn’t bring on representatives from reactionary fringe groups to discuss the issues.

Well, Michele Bachmann’s husband does, or he did a couple yrs ago – her husband, Marcus Bachmann, is a “therapist” and allegedly hetero. He appears at :32 in linked clip:
