NH group seeks GOPresidential allies; we hope GOP field's prepared to accept group's own 'ex-gay' alliances

by Jeremy Hooper

According to Roll Call, New Hampshire's Cornerstone Policy Research is hoping to take its "protect marriage" advocacy national:

“It was never a plan to make it into a national issue, but it just seems like the timing is right,” Kevin Smith, executive director of the socially conservative think tank New Hampshire Cornerstone, told Roll Call.
...
Cornerstone will ask each Republican presidential candidate to sign a pledge agreeing marriage should be between one man and one woman.

“Why not try to leverage the influence of the candidates to get them to declare their support for traditional marriage?” Smith said. “If you have a candidate saying they’re not willing to oppose same-sex marriage, I think they’ll have a problem. ... We have a wide membership list. We’ll certainly let them know.”

A move we actually support. Because if/when the GOP field does submit to Cornerstone Policy's wishes, we will more than welcome the opportunity to ask that same slate of candidates if they support the one and only gay-related endgame that CPR pushes on its website. Namely, "ex-gay" therapy:
