Alliance Defense Fund attorney says gays bring harms upon selves, that it doesn't get better

by Jeremy Hooper

Brian Raum and his colleagues at the ADF regularly go to court for the decided purpose of making life less equal and fair for LGBT citizens and their supporters. But as Brian will now insist: It's actually LGBT people who are bringing for the harms, which will never get better:

Screen Shot 2011-10-20 At 4.27.49 Pm"We should not turn a blind eye to the physical and mental harms that people engaged in homosexual conduct bring upon themselves by chalking those harms up to 'stigma, discrimination, and victimization'—demanding more health studies and changes to the medical system—rather than dare ask people to reconsider the path they are traveling down. Instead, we tell them 'it gets better' when, in fact, it does not."

No Brian, you actually don't tell anyone it gets better. In fact, you tell America that it will and should get worse. In fact, you and ADF spend obscene amounts of time and money to make it harder, worse, more divided, and more frightening, particularly to the ones who are most in need of an "it gets better" message.

Shame.
