Mass "Family" Institute: Gays are Pedophiles

The conservative organization, Massachusetts "Family" Institute (MFI), is trying to link homosexuality to child abuse. The most recent MFI email update has a section titled:
Foley scandal shows link between homosexuality and child abuse

The email goes on to state:
"...neither party seems likely to address the real issue, which is the link between homosexuality and child sexual abuse...While pro-homosexual activists like to claim that pedophilia is a completely distinct orientation from homosexuality, evidence shows a disproportionate overlap between the two."
This is absolutely disgraceful. I expect this kind of garbage from the radical fringe anti-gay group MassResistance, but I am surprised to see MFI spewing this kind of hate.

The rest of the MFI email update whines about the Rhode Island gay marriage decision and complains about schools in Philadelphia celebrating gay history month. However, it is the absurd gays = child molester article that has me outraged.

MFI is the major organization leading the fight to ban gay marriage by amending the state constitution. They always claim that they are not anti-gay, and that they just want to let the people "vote on marriage". That is a flat-out lie. They are not against gay marriage; they are against gay human beings.

Most people in Massachusetts have a friend, family member, or co-worker who is gay. What would these people say if they knew that a major organization that is claiming to "protect family values" is calling their gay friends and family members pedophiles?

The anti-gay article was written by Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council. Tony and his crew are coming to Boston soon to celebrate "Liberty Sunday". This will be a day filled with gay bashing from bay state conservatives. I will have more on this later.

In the meantime, please watch this amazing video promoting the upcoming nationwide simulcast, Liberty Sunday. This video is absolutely hilarious! I beg you to take 4 minutes to watch this video. There are guest appearances by Mitt Romney, Kris Mineau (President of MFI), and lots of footage of happy gay couples...I mean, the "radical minority".

Now it's time to hear what Matt Foreman, the Executive Director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, has to say about all this:
"The GOP has only one response when it’s in trouble –– ‘blame the gays.' The latest blame-dodging tactic in the Foley scandal is ‘appalling, disgusting and pure McCarthyism’. National Gay and Lesbian Task Force calls upon Democrats, Republicans and straight allies to stand up for gay Americans.

Are you outraged about you or your gay friends and family members being called pedophiles? Let the Massachusetts "Family" Institute know that you and your gay family members are appalled at the lies being spread about us and our families.
