No, no -- Maggie's not battling gay orientations. She just calls homosexuality 'unfortunate', 'controllable', and 'sinful' because she's bored.
“I’m very proud of the message that NOM has carried consistently and with great love and courage: which is that marriage matters because children need a mom and dad; Our battle is not with an orientation but a political movement that seeks to use the law to embed a new moral idea: there is no difference between same-sex and opposite sex couples and you’re a hater, bigot and quasi-racist if you disagree. It’s very sad to see the deterioration of a once-great civil rights organization to this level”

Right. Maggie's "battle is not with an orientation." Except, you know -- when it totally is:
8/9/2010: Maggie says gays 'can always control [their] behavior'; admits she sees homosexuality as 'an unfortunate thing':

5/14/2001, Maggie uses Dr. Robert Spitzer's study in a way that goes against his own wishes and findings, calls homosexuality a "sexual dysfunction": "I believe there is rather powerful evidence that human beings are a two-sex species, designed for sexual rather than asexual reproduction. If this is true, then the absence of desire for the opposite sex represents, at a minimum, a sexual dysfunction much as impotence or infertility. Human beings seeking help in overcoming sexual dysfunctions deserve our respect and support (and may I mention, President Bush, more research dollars?)." [Source]
3/20/2000, Maggie defends Dr. Laura: "In a simple biological framework abstracted from all religion and morality, homosexuality is like infertility. It is a sexual disability preventing certain individuals from participating in the normal reproductive patterns of the human species." [Source]
August, 2009: Maggie says the Iowa marriage ruling flies in the face of both Leviticus and Genesis:

Maybe not an incoming freshman's college orientation. But if we're talk about a certain sexual orientation, Maggie's like a "culture war" lieutenant (if not a full-fledged general)!
