Laurie Higgins finds our marriages inconceivable, our acceptance 'pernicious'

by Jeremy Hooper

More insight into the Illinois Family Institute's aggressive myth-making, here one day before the organization's big lobby day in Springfield:

"If we say and do nothing as homosexuals and their ideological allies vigorously push to legalize what should be inconceivable, we bear significant responsibility for the presence of pernicious, fallacious ideas in elementary schools.

If we say and do nothing while the government becomes complicit in the destruction of marriage, we bequeath to our children and grandchildren a country of diminished rights and greater oppression, which will follow as surely as night follows day.

If we say and do nothing, we get what we deserve,
"

—Illinois Family Institute's incredibly incendiary researcher, Laurie Higgins [QUOTE SOURCE]

On that last line, Laurie and I agree. The Illinois Family Institute does, in fact, deserve marriage equality. We all do.
