IFI video: We don't want 'sin' to be 'normalized or seem right'

by Jeremy Hooper

Long ago, I declared the Illinois Family Institute to be the most incendiary of any of the statewide opposition groups, mostly because of the organization's full-on embrace of personal hostility for homosexuality (as opposed to just marriage equality). Here now is another glimpse into what this org. is really fighting, delivered by an official IFI video:

(*clip is cued to right point)

"Struggling with sin does not mean that the answer is to make sin normalized or seem right"? This is not language that merely attacks our marriages; this is language that attacks our peace. This isn't just a fight against our civil rights; this is a fight against the very idea of LGBT people as a natural part of the fabric.

With the evidence I have at my disposal, I can no longer define Illinois' current debate by the marriage question at its center. They want to "change" us, kids. The sooner we realize, process, and shout that truth from the rooftops, the sooner we will win the peace of mind that they so desperately fear.
