Facts

 -- “All sexual sin is wrong because it fails to mirror the Trinitarian image, but homosexuality does more than fail. It’s a particularly evil lie of Satan because he knows that it overthrows the very image of the Trinitarian God in creation, revealed in the union of male and female.”  Adds: "nothing else challenges this image of the Triune God so profoundly and thoroughly as homosexuality. It's not what we were made for."

-- Claims being gay/lesbian is just a "social construct" and "political statement"

-- On gay families: “So, we must ask, ‘Is it wise to enter the same- sex family experiment with a generation of children so we can learn how it will turn out?’ Is it ethical to turn thousands of children into human guinea pigs? The answer must be a resounding ‘no.’”

-- Says same-sex marriage "not only redefines marriage wholesale for everyone, but it actually deconstructs humanity itself." 

-- The American Anthropological Association wrote a strong letter condemning Stanton’s “deliberate misrepresentation of the anthropological community” on the subject of marriage equality.

-- Wrote article saying it was "shameful, "manipulative," and "not good parenting" for two dads to allow their daughter to make a video defending her family
