-- Says that gay youth are “probably troubled kids in a number of ways.” 

-- On the “It Gets Better” national ad campaign: “Apparently, American Idol, with the help of Woody from Disney’s Toy Story, thinks that my 4th grader needs to be fully aware of the plight of teens who view themselves as ‘gay…Fox blew it last night...They lured us into a false sense of security and broke trust with us last night.”

-- Signed on to an effort that seeks God’s “healing for those who struggle with same-sex attraction” and to “replace unnatural affections”

-- Says "if Christians respond to "gay marriage" apathetically, then we are ignoring the basic tenets of our faith and allowing the wholesale destruction of our society's moral foundation."

-- Directly compares same-sex marriage to marijuana, prostitution, etc: "[W]hen the law rewards something through licensing or benefits, there is always increased activity. Legalization of vices is never a concrete solution. We have seen these effects when marijuana, abortion, sex trafficking, and other immoralities were legalized in our neighboring countries. Specifically, a case study in Germany, which legalized prostitution in 2002, reveals that the amount of sex trafficking victims in the country has risen 70 percent in the last seven years. The Netherlands, believing that the legalization of prostitution as a profitable business would decrease the amount of children sex trafficked, has since seen a 300 percent increase in child prostitution."

-- Says of marriage equality activists: "Those who persist in forcing their preferred redefinition of marriage on the country by rule of law stand squarely against everything on which this country was founded - most notably against the freedom of religion, which they argue should be suppressed whenever it interferes with their newly discovered constitutional 'right' to homosexual 'marriage.'"
