Illinois Family Institute head: Gays are 'slaves to the sin of sexual perversion'

by Jeremy Hooper

The Illinois Family Institute is determined to just hand us the marriage debate on a silver platter. Here's the head of the Illinois Family Institute, that state's leading "pro-family" lobby group, using shockingly outspoken "ex-gay" Linda Jernigan as an example of gays not needing to be "slaves to the sin of sexual perversion":

This is the same man who is aligning with NOM on trying to oust state GOP chairman Pat Brady simply because said chair is pro-equality. So I guess the state Republicans are going to have to decide: follow a moderate who believes one can be both Republican and accepting, or get behind the man/group that wants to "heal" the millions of gay people who both reside in and visit the state.

Not to give unsolicited advice, but I'd probably go with fairness. Snake oil just doesn't have the market value it once did.
