Illinois' leading marriage equality opponent promotes 'overcoming same-sex attraction disorder'

by Jeremy Hooper

The Illinois Family Institute continues to be the top group standing in the way of equality in the Land of Lincoln. The IFI also continues to show that its true agenda goes far beyond our ring fingers:

Hey, Illinois lawmakers: They want to "cure" us! This is the extreme, outrageous, and scientifically-discredited viewpoint with which some of you chose to side rather than to support basic civil freedoms for your tax-paying constituents.

By standing with the IFI rather than with civil marriage rights, feet-dragging lawmakers are sending the truly dangerous message that LGBT people have "disorders" that can and should be "fixed." That is what they believe, and that is what they want Illinoisans to believe—and neither cause can be detached from their advocacy on marriage!

It's time for the legislators to fix their mistake.
