Flashback: The time Delaware's anti-equality org admitted it supports 'ex-gay' junk science

Nicole Theis, president of the Delaware Family Policy Council, isn't so open about her support for "ex-gay" junk science these days. She surely wasn't open about it in the Op-Ed she placed in the local media cycle this morning. She makes her case all about marriage, not LGBT people.

Back in 2011, however, I stumbled on a much more loose-lipped Theis. Back then, she and deputy Jordan Warfel were all about pushing groups like NARTH in order to convince folks who were engaged on their Facebook page that gay people can and should "change." Take a look:

*Note1: Some of the comments are from a Jordan and others
are from Nicole. All have an "ex-gay" advocacy attached.

*Note 2: I haven't edited out any of the in-between comments.
The group deleted dissenting voices before eventually deleting their own (revelatory) comments as well

Ms. Theis titled her morning Op-ed "What 'yes' vote to redefine marriage really means." Yeah, well—back atcha, Nicole! Many of us are quite fearful what a vote in favor of your position would really mean. I mean, why should any of us think you want to stop at our ring fingers when you've made it clear that you'd like to alter our orientations as well?
