National Organization for Marriage as an Anti-Gay Hate Group in Action

National Organization for Marriage's Ruth Institute is signing up participants for their It Takes a Family to Raise a Village conference for students. "Among the invited and confirmed speakers are: Bill Duncan, director of the Marriage Law Foundation; Robert Gagnon, associate professor of New Testament at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary; Mark Regnerus, associate professor of sociology at the University of Texas at Austin; Dr. Freda McKissic Bush, a partner with East Lakeland OB-GYN, and others."

The "standout" in that list is Robert Gagnon who is his own hate group. What makes Gagnon so dangerous is that he is very smart. While he essentially holds himself out as a mental health professional, his degrees are in theology. He has spent his entire career teaching theology. He hasn't the erudition to hold himself out as anything other than a theologian. Lack of education and experience won't stop Gagnon. He explicitly espouses the fiction that gays are pedophiles. He advocates reorientation therapy and he claims that homosexuality is inherently harmful. Among the things that Gagnon has written:
A second negative effect of societal endorsement of homosexuality has to do with the problem of pedophilia and its role in “recruiting” homosexuals into the fold. There can be little doubt that affirmation of a same-sex lifestyle will increase the incidence of pedophilic activity 
Homosexual development results in homosexual pedophilia substantially more often as a percentage of the total number than heterosexual development results in heterosexual pedophilia
This idea that “homosexuals” and “pedophiles” are mutually exclusive groups is just ‘smoke and mirrors’ by psychiatric and psychological associations concerned to protect the image of homosexual persons
There is thus an inherent deficiency in homosexual unions: the absence of a sexual counterpart to moderate the extremes of, and fill the gaps in, the distinctive features of one’s own sex. This deficiency is largely responsible for the disproportionately high rate of scientifically measurable, negative harm that attends homosexual activity
The bullshit goes on and on and on and on. Media matters has the complete works if you have the stomach for such stuff.
