Cohen's Moonie arranged Marriage is also ethically challenged
A lot has been written about Richard Cohen's "reparative therapy" method that's supposed to cure you of being gay. Let's take a look at how this man got married.
"He has been married for nearly 23 years--an arranged marriage that he said was suggested by the Rev. Sun Myung Moon when he and his wife were members of the Unification Church, to which they belonged for 20 years."
His ties to Moon explains a lot, but even more troubling is this:
He is not licensed as a therapist, he explained, because he "didn't want to jump through the hoops and deal with the heterophobia and anti-ex-gay attitudes." He circumvents the licensing requirement by asking for donations to his foundation. "I am not doing therapy per se," he said. "I'm coaching." In 2002, Cohen was permanently expelled from the American Counseling Association (ACA) for multiple ethical violations.
Permanent expulsion is a rarely used sanction, according to David Kaplan, chief professional officer of the Alexandria-based organization. Kaplan said Cohen was found to have violated six sections of the ACA's ethics code, which bars members from actions that "seek to meet their personal needs at the expense of clients," those that exploit "the trust and dependency of clients," and for soliciting testimonials or promoting products in a deceptive manner."
The man is thrown out because of ethical violations yet is given tremendous coverage as some sort of a healer by our liberal media. Just another snake oil salesman.
