"White House: No Comment On Ex-Gay Therapy"

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney had no comment today about President Obama’s position on ex-gay therapy or funding it through Medicaid, saying, “I haven’t spoken to him about it, so I don’t want to characterize his thoughts on this.” Carney similarly had no answer to an almost identical question last week. Obama faced scrutiny for inviting ex-gay advocate Donnie McClurkin to a campaign event early in his presidential campaign. (HT: The Washington Blade.)
