Protect Marriage Maine co-head pushes 'ex-gay' propaganda (again)

by Jeremy Hooper

Protect Marriage Maine's Bob Emrich has a history of telling gay people they can and should "change." In fact, he was so aggressively pushing back during the 2009 campaign that I made a video about it:

Well check this out. Bob, who is back front and center in the current campaign against marriage equality in the state, is now pushing the following article via his Facebook page:

At the link? It's a completely skewed article from the evangelical World magazine all about professional "ex-gay" Christopher Yuan and how he "overcame" his "suffering from same-sex attraction." It's not about marriage. It's not about policy. This piece, pushed by the man trying to stop *CIVIL* marriage equality in the State, is pure, anti-scientific hostility for the reality and acceptance of the spectrum that is sexual orientation. It's not about altering the ring finger—it's about "changing" the core of LGBT people's beings!

Let's just hope PMM puts this, the obvious intent that underlies the rhetoric, into one of its ads! It's about time we have an honest conversation about their larger goals.
