Exclusive: New Hampshire's leading 'protect marriage' group pushing gay 'cures'

by Jeremy Hooper

Earlier this morning we let you hear a clip wherein the president of New Hampshire's leading "pro-family" group, Kevin Smith of Cornerstone Policy Research, revealed that he not only wants to get rid of the state's marriage equality, but also its prior civil unions system. And while we were shocked that he'd admit that the group's intent went beyond marriage and smack into basic rights and protections, it appears that maybe we didn't even go far enough in terms of either shock or insight. Because check this out: We just found these "helpful links" listed on Cornerstone's newly revamped website (which just relaunched today):

Yes, that's right: The group that's seeking to roll back basic protections in the state is also pushing scientifically-discredited "ex-gay" programs and "research." Four of the six of the above links (Love Won Out, NARTH, Exodus, and PFOX) are solely dedicated to changing/curing/praying away the gay. As in that's all they do: Seek ways to keep the "gays can change" meme alive (or perhaps we should say "ex-dead").

This is not about politics. Not about referenda or court battles. Not about "protecting marriage," like Cornerstone and their allies at the National Organization For Marriage always claim. What this shows, with 100% certainty, is that the group that's most prominently, most vocally hoping to reshape the marriage debate in the Live Free or Die State is also hoping to reshape gay people's very cores of existence in ways that fly in the face of ALL credible science.

They have now put this into the debate. It's up to us to make sure every single state lawmaker knows it.
