Jonathan Saenz

-- Head of Texas Values, an Austin-based anti-LGBT group

 

Facts

-- Tells gay people that they must "change": "My heart breaks for you if you are currently choosing to live a sinful sexual lifestyle while also trying to convince others that it is also okay to live a sinful lifestyle without making any efforts to change or resist sin and temptation. You can make a decision today to "go and sin no more." It's not too late. It's never too late."

-- Says homosexuality is "dangerous and risky sexual activity that can fiercely jeopardize a person's well-being

-- Claims marriage equality will lead to people marrying their own stepchildren: “That’s what this effort is about, that’s what it will continue to be about. And make no mistake about it, if you redefine it and open the definition to where it’s not one man-one woman, I don’t see how you can limit it in any other way. I just don’t. The same type of equality arguments, so to speak, that are being made — the argument [that] it’s about people that love each other. How do you have any limitation on that? How do you stop polygamy? How do you stop people that want to do that with their own family members? Their stepchildren? I think there are even laws that suggest that you can’t marry someone that is a stepchild. That’s not even a blood relation. Those people could love each other, once that stepchild gets older.”

-- Opposed an LGBT-inclusive coloring book, saying it is "pushing the homosexual lifestyle" (*note: the book was not even in Texas schools; it was its simple publishing that Saenz found controversial)

-- A major opponent of inclusive Boy Scouts, said the organization made a "tragic decision" when it allowed gay youth

-- Called a federal court decision in favor of marriage equality a "clear attack on morality"

-- Defends so-called "conversion therapy" as valid science
