Is Love in Action on Its Way Out?

The Memphis Flyer notes that John Smid has resigned as President/CEO of the Memphis-based Love in Action - a "reparative therapy" program. LIA drew national attention and criticism for admiting an unwilling Memphis teenager into its youth program. LIA faced scrutiny from the Tennessee Departments of Health and Children Services. The program was eventually discontinued.

Here's hoping that the LIA "ministry" struggles to survive without Smid.
