Anti-gay group backs off paraphilia claim -- yet no flying pigs outside our window?!?

by Jeremy Hooper

The Traditional Values Coalition, Congressman Louis Gohmert (Far R-TX), Focus on the Family, WorldNetDaily, Liberty Counsel, American Family Association, Congressman Steve King (As Far R as Louis-IA), Concerned Women For America, and countless others have failed to back away from their willfully malicious, clearly flawed "pedophilia is among the 30+ sexual orientations" claim. But Box Turtle Bulletin writer and G-A-Y friend Timothy Kincaid did get the notoriously homo-hostile Illinois Family Institute to tentatively back away from their own misuse:

"In the article entitled “Hate Crimes Bill Moves to Senate” (5/5/09), we mistakenly stated that the American Psychiatric Association’s actual definition of “sexual orientation” includes paraphilias"...."IFI apologizes for the error"
IFI Corrects Paraphilias Claim [BTB]

Wow, have the "pro-fams" turned over a new, more transparent leaf or something?!

Your thoughts

I can't wait to hear what a certain former employee has to say about this.

Did I die in my sleep and end up in cukoo land?!
Do they honestly think that making up for their lies excuses the lies?!

I can see it now, "LOLZ, We're honest now too! IN UR FACE!!!"
Yeah, that's where I'm putting my money on this. Drastic times=drastic measures for them.
