Do you remember Richard Cohen? He’s the sad sack embarrassment of the therapize-away-the-gay movement who has been mocked by his fellow “recloseted homosexuals” and he has been expelled from the American Counseling Association.
The practitioner of the zero-credibility reparative therapy at the International Healing Foundation includes cuddling sessions with his patients (“You’ve got to feel it to heal it.”), and hitting a pillow with a tennis racquet and screaming (MOM!…WHY…DID…YOU…DO…THIS…TO…ME!!!). He has already provided rich material for Comedy Central and CNN.
Rachel Maddow introduced her audience to Cohen last night.
