Today in D.C.: FRC's Peter Sprigg testifies in favor of gay 'change'

by Jeremy Hooper

Peter Sprigg-1Peter Sprigg, who has voiced support for both "exporting" gay people from the United States and imposing criminal sanctions against homosexuality, will testify today before the D.C. City Council. In hopes of thwarting a proposal to ban junk science in the nation's capital, the Family Research Council Senior Fellow will join other self-described "ex-gays" in pretending that the scientifically discredited idea of "change" actually has some sort of rational support base:

Mr. Sprigg will argue that the sponsors' claims that such therapy is ineffective and harmful are not supported by research, and that evidence shows the sexual orientation of adolescents can be quite fluid.

When the hearing is over, Mr. Sprigg will join other opponents of the bill, including ex-gays who have benefited from such therapy, in a press conference outside the Wilson Building. He will be available for questioning at the press conference and by arrangement throughout the day.

Yet another reason why it's so outrageous for cable news shows to continue to host FRC personalities, including Sprigg, and pretend that their cause is focused and limited. It's not. It never has been. This senior FRC official, like all senior FRC officials, wants us "prayed away." Forget marriage—It's the very core of our beings that they are after.
