Video: Maryland Marriage Alliance hosts panel with professional 'ex-gay' Greg Quinlan

by Jeremy Hooper

Is the campaign against civil marriage equality in Maryland *really* just confined to marriage? Over the weekend, we got more confirmation that the answer is an emphatic NO!

The man talking at the beginning of this cued-up clip is Greg Quinlan, who dedicates his career to "changing" gay people. The man just two seats down, laughing and cheering him on, is the head of the Maryland Marriage Alliance, Derek McCoy:

(*Especially note the classy way Quinlan, around 46:10, calls Ellen Degeneres "Ellen DeGenerate")

An "ex-gay" president speaking on a campaign panel held in a church? It is open defiance against the civil reality of marriage, the science of sexual orientation, and the separation of church and state. It's radical, actually. And it's really scary.

***

**NOTE: I love how the preacher admits throughout the clip that their whole panel is "barely" legal.

**NOTE 2: Dr. Francis Collins, who Quinlan cites around 48:00, has personally come out AGAINST the way Greg Quinlan cites his research!
