No, no -- Maggie's not battling gay orientations. She just calls homosexuality 'unfortunate', 'controllable', and 'sinful' because she's bored.

by Jeremy Hooper

In response to the Southern Poverty Law Center's latest anti-gay group coverage, Maggie Gallagher chimes in with these thoughts:

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

-Maggie Gallagher, chairperson of the National Organization's Board [SOURCE]

Right. Maggie's "battle is not with an orientation." Except, you know -- when it totally is:

Ex. 1:

8/9/2010: Maggie says gays 'can always control [their] behavior'; admits she sees homosexuality as 'an unfortunate thing':

Ex. 2:

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]

Ex. 3:

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]

Ex. 5:

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)!
