Bob Emrich

- Co-head of the campaign to overturn Maine’s marriage equality law in 2009

- Northeast Field Ambassador at the Family Research Council

- Chair of Protect Marriage Maine

 

Facts

- Says marriage equality is a "direct challenge to the righteousness and wisdom of God" (comments shared with a Sept. 2011 national pastor webinar)

- In 2009, while the debate over the so-called "Kill The Gays Bill" was being debated in Uganda and worldwide, Emrich -- who had just returned from the African nation -- sent an email to his supporters wherein he pushed an article that praised a "brilliant MP" for coming up "with a Bill against homosexuality." The referenced bill calls for the death penalty as punishment for being gay.

- Routinely proves that his advocacy goes beyond marriage and into "changing" gay people: "Those who want to redefine marriage want us to believe that we show love and support for homosexual family members by encouraging them to remain in their sin. Christian people will remember that true love and support helps people overcome, not surrender." 

- Accuses his state's pro-equality lawmakers of mocking God: "It was the most shameful, most embarrassing thing for my state that I have seen.  I listened to Senator after Senator stand up and mock God, mock the word of God, mocking the people of God…I was so angry hearing the way they were speaking about my God." (Session 4 19:22-20:01)

- On his official YouTube channel, Emrich pushes several videos that encourage gay people to "change" their orientations.
