Mormon gay cure therapist comes out as gay and is looking for boyfriend

David Matheson, a notorious Mormon practitioner of gay ‘cure’ therapy, is now “pursuing life as a gay man.”

The therapist was one of the best-known Mormon practitioners of conversion therapy, setting up the Journey into Manhood program in line with church teachings that direct gay people to repress their feelings and marry someone of the opposite sex.

But Matheson, who trained under Joseph Nicolosi of National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH), has now admitted that he is gay.

2. From the article

snip..."Mormon gay cure therapist David Matheson won’t renounce past work
Matheson insisted he was not renouncing his work.

He added: “I wasn’t faking it all those years. I’m not renouncing my past work or my LDS faith. And I’m not condemning mixed-orientation marriage."

More at article.

From his book blurb on Amazon..."He and Peggy, his wife of over thirty years, have three adult children and one grandchild."

Good luck with your life buddy. How are you doing with reparitive therapy with Peggy your ex, your kids and grand kids? What about the lives of those you damaged?
