Video: Maggie gets more media; yay us

by Jeremy Hooper

She'd probably disagree, but I really can't see how either of these clips -- or the recent profile, for that matter -- help Maggie's movement in any way:

In this one, pay special attention around the 9 min. mark where Maggie denies she has any pro-"ex-gay" views, even though we know that to be a flat-out lie (*I'll round up the NOM/Maggie "ex-gay" stuff below):

*Maggie's "ex-gay" advocacy: Maggie has called homosexuality an "unfortunate thing," "at a minimum, a sexual dysfunction much as impotence or infertility," and "a sexual disability preventing certain individuals from participating in the normal reproductive patterns of the human species." She has also suggested that gays "can always control their behavior," and even called on a sitting President to give more funding to scientifically-shunned "ex-gay" research.

Also, NOM president Brian Brown recently touted a (flawed) "ex-gay" study, saying "Even those who disagree with us about gay marriage (or Christian sexual ethics) should feel good about this this scientific verification of the possibility of free will triumphing over desire. We are all more than our instincts, sexual or otherwise" [SOURCE]. NOM's Culture Director, Thomas Peters, has advocated for Courage, a Catholic "change" organization. Peters has also said that the MSM intentionally denies that "change happens."

Jennifer Roback Morse, head of NOM's affiliate Ruth Institute recently went into a long explanation about how Catholics like herself don't "accept the category of gayness," basically saying that we are all just men and women who are meant to be heterosexual, regardless of our "attractions."

Damian Goddard, the man who is working with Maggie on her recently launched "Marriage Anti-Defamation" project, also advocated for "Courage," the organization geared towards helping LGBT Catholics "change."

Oh, and whoever runs the NOM Facebook page (presumably someone at Opus Fidelis, the Catholic firm NOM hired for social media outreach) recently "liked" a comment in which a supporter touted the "formerly gay people that realized the wrong in it and felt the same emptiness and changed."

That's just some from off the top of my head. There's surely much more, especially if you consider all of the links, affiliations, and rubbed-shoulders that allow NOM to exist.
