We have to apologize to NH's Cornerstone Policy Research

by Jeremy Hooper

Twice now, we've told you that New Hampshire's chief lobby group for repealing marriage equality in the state, Cornerstone Policy Research (a major NOM affiliate), is pushing four different groups that are seeking to "cure" or "change" or gays. But now, we have a little bit of egg on our face, and need to send a sincere "sorry" to CPR.

So we're just gonna rip off the Band-Aid and come right out and admit it: Our information was, in fact, wrong. Because ya see, It turns out that CPR is not pushing four groups that focus on stopping parts of gays' bodies other than their ring fingers. No, no -- they are actually PUSHING FIVE OF THEM:

We brain farted on Courage, not realizing this was that Catholic group based in Connecticut that tells gays they should develop "an interior life of chastity" so that "one can move beyond the confines of the homosexual identity to a more complete one in Christ." In short: This group tells gays they should forgo love and affection, since they were born too broken to ever really experience it in a way the Catholic Church will accept. Here's Courage Director Fr. Paul Check with more on his work:

"Who you are" is either active and wrong, or de-sexualized and okay with the church. In a nutshell, that's Courage (big c).

So yeah, please accept our apologizes, Cornerstone folks. It turns out you, the group that's leading the charge to rollback *CIVIL* marriage equality in the "Live Free Or Die State," are actually using a whopping five different faith-based groups to support not only your marriage cause, but also the much deeper, much more science-flouting drive to tell gay people they are junk in need of repair. We promise not to again misrepresent your stance.
