You can't shake a marriage amendment without hitting an 'ex-gay' advocate (NC edition)

by Jeremy Hooper

Two tweets that speak volumes about the push to amend the North Carolina constitution, its implications, and its true impetus:

For those unaware: NARTH is a sham science group filled with faith-based activists who purport to give a scientific basis to the idea that gays can and should "change." NARTH is not about "protecting marriage" or shaping policy -- the organization is, in full, designed to "convert" this world's gay people. Their work is 100% personal, 1000000% offensive (both to gays and science).

And yet these are the back-to-back bookings of Peter Sprigg, a Senior Fellow at conservative establishment Family Research Council? One night he strategizes with the coalition that wants to change the constitution, then the next night he schmoozes with those who, if left to their own wishes, would de-gay every LGB person in the Tar Heel State? As I said: Speaks volumes.
