As Jeremy reports, now that the fight over marriage equality is over in Illinois (smile), the Illinois Family Institute, one of the most vicious hate groups of all, is back to just trying to change gay people’s sexual orientations. As Jeremy also reports, this kind of crap would be a lot more credible if the anti-gay side could trot out one purported “ex-gay” who doesn’t have a long sob story about family abuse, drug abuse, suicide attempts, or other things like that. Unfortunately, that’s not the way it works. The “ex-gay” myth only continues to have legs because the Religious Right is particularly good at targeting vulnerable victims who they can convince that they should blame all their worldly problems on their sexual orientation. It’s sick, but then again, consider our opposition.
