In fit to recruit animus, major Maryland Marriage Alliance leader accuses us of 'recruiting'

by Jeremy Hooper

Harry Jackson is probably the most visible and connected of all Maryland Marriage Alliance voices. Also, the guy leading the whole campaign, Derek McCoy, is an Associate Pastor at Harry's church. His views are their views and vice versa.

This is the kind of view I'm talking about:

The reason Harry says stuff like this is because he's laying groundwork for an Anita Bryant comeback tour he knows that it makes gay people sound predatory. That's a big part of the game. The radical anti-equality activists in Maryland know that LGBT people have great and growing support, so they are determined to scare lower information voters into believing that the pesky homos are coming for their children. They want receptive parents, in particular, to believe that their little Johns and Jessicas are just one "recruitment" meeting away from sexually raving the genitalia for which they had previously showed no interest. Because in this militant movement's visions, gays are not born into being but rather indoctrinated into contrivance.

And remember, this Harry Jackson nastiness comes just a few days after we listened to him refer to our families as "discombobulated, Frankenstein structures." It's just constant denigration with this one! This one who, you know—is considered a great thought leader in the fight to deny civil equality in Maryland and elsewhere.
