Work of 'ex-gay' therapist Richard Cohen vanishes from NARTH, PFOX sites

[Welcome, Americablog readers. You will laugh until you cry when you watch The Daily Show clip of Cohen’s belching, stretching and “therapy.” The best clip is after the jump.]

Ex-Gay Watch has the scoop on the spectacular fall from ex-gay grace of fraudulent reparative therapist Richard Cohen, who has appeared on CNN’s Paula Zahn Now demonstrating how he therapizes the homo out of men, and doing the same for The Daily Show, making a complete ass out of himself. Sad. Gay activist Wayne Besen also appears in the clip as well.

A sample of his “therapy” from a report on CNN, via Truth Wins Out. You can see the hilarious CNN segment here.

Cohen, who has been hailed in the past by the National Association for the Therapy of Homosexuals (NARTH) and Parents and Friends of Gays and Ex-Gays (PFOX) couldn’t handle the ridicule any more so the organizations have cleansed their sites of Cohen’s pieces.

David Roberts of Ex-Gay Watch:

It is uncertain exactly why they chose now to finally distance themselves entirely (at least publicly) from the the self-described “psychotherapist and educator.” Cohen was permanently expelled from the American Counseling Association several years ago and currently operates without a license. Until last year he was the president of PFOX and just months ago they were still referring people to him. He is known for his bizarre media appearances and unorthodox methods, appearing most recently on The Daily Show in what may have been his most absurd performance to date (though there are so many). Perhaps this was the straw that broke the proverbial camel’s back.

Ah, The Daily Show. Let’s take a look at what finally sent PFOX, NARTH, Exodus’s Alan Chambers and Exodus VP Randy Thomas over the edge…

Part 2 is after the flip.
