The hard bigotry of...well, bigotry

From Agape Press:

A mental health expert has been removed from an advisory panel of a large behavioral health company because of his belief that homosexuality can be changed.

Last September, Dr. Warren Throckmorton was asked to serve for a sixth year on the National Provider Advisory Committee of Magellan Health Services. But last month, Magellan retracted is offer, arguing Throckmorton's views on homosexuality were too controversial. In a recent conference call, chief medical officer Alex Rodriguez accused Throckmorton of mixing religion with mental health perspectives.

Throckmorton, a counselor and psychology professor at Grove City College in Pennsylvania, says he expected those who disagree with him to attempt to marginalize his views -- but he says he was surprised Magellan could not make a decision based on principle.

"I think it's tragic that a billion-dollar company charged with the mental health care and well being of 60 million subscribers can be, in a sense, bullied by people who disagree with client self-determination," he states.

According to Throckmorton, Dr. Rodriguez admitted to being more concerned about backlash from homosexual activists than conservatives.

I guess since Liberals ignore parts of the First Amendment so often, that's why they've invented new, imaginary parts of it.
