If NOM isn't anti-gay, why do they recruit speakers that viciously condemn gay people?

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2013-06-14 At 4.10.03 PmFor the fifth year in a row, the National Organization For Marriage's Ruth Institute (headed by six-figure-compensated NOM employee Jennifer Roback Morse) invited vocal "ex-gay" advocate, person who likes to compare homosexuality to incest and pedophilia, and guy who likes to personally insult me, Robert Gagnon, to lead a series of sessions at its annual ITAF conference. This year, one of Gagnon's talks was specifically about how gay people's very orientations are unable to be supported—a view that is apparently right in line with this NOM-branded conference.

I'm posting just one clip, but the full speech (at link) is 100% geared toward framing gays as unnatural, broken, and in need of change. Listen to how the "NOM Education Fund" is trying to educate America's young people:

**ALSO: Gagnon held a Q&A following his talk, in which he touted his work on the "ex-gay" front (Gagnon is a founding board member of the "ex-gay" group Restored Hope Network)
