The self-proclaimed National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality dedicates itself to the the "research, therapy and prevention of homosexuality" – they're going to find that evil homosexual programming and stomp it out before it takes root! Unlike religion-based groups (although they're really palsy-walsy with Focus on the Family), NARTH takes the position that homosexuality is a mental disorder, and they've been working in opposition to the American Psychiatric Association 's 1973 decision that removed homosexuality from its list of mental disorders. Pretty much any time the APA issues an opinion favoring gays, these guys claim it's because those blasted homosexuals are using political clout to influence the APA, and that NARTH's own opinions and position is being censored within the APA. This is why there's a prominent section of NARTH's own Web site that focuses on "Distortions of Science by Gay Activism."
