Curt Smith

--President of Indiana Family Institute



-- Promotes conferences that seek to "change" gay people

-- Admits: "...I believe homosexuality is harmful to all, including society, and is against the teachings of the God of the Bible..."

-- Equates homosexuality with bestiality and adultery: "The Judeo-Christian worldview at the heart of Western culture and so our legal and governmental systems (Ten Commandments, an "eye for an eye," the very concepts of mercy, justice and rehabilitation) promotes marriage and family while decrying other modes of sexuality -- homosexuality, bestiality, adultery, etc"

-- Uses skewed "research" from activists who share his view to claim "that gay men can change from homosexual to heterosexual orientation" and that "homosexual orientation is not an immutable fact of nature or Creation." 

-- Refers to details surrounding Matthew Shepard's tragic murder as gay activist "propaganda;" claims the real takeaway from the gay man's brutal murder is that marriage should be "strengthened" (i.e. gays should be blocked from to) so that drug abuse will be discouraged

-- In Thanksgiving post, taunted his blog readers, "So prove me wrong today.  Show me the gay community has a life beyond absorption with narcissistic sex. Show us you are truly "gay" as in thankful and happy."
