Mohler is the President of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and was named by Time.com as "reigning intellectual of the evangelical movement in the U.S."
GLAAD notes Mohler has said:
"If a biological basis is found (for being gay), and if a prenatal test is then developed, and if a successful treatment to reverse the sexual orientation to heterosexual is ever developed, we would support its use as we should unapologetically support the use of any appropriate means to avoid sexual temptation and the inevitable effects of sin."and
"The earthquake in Haiti, like every other earthly disaster, reminds us that creation groans under the weight of sin and the judgment of God."

GLAAD notes he's said:
"Even those who disagree with us about gay marriage (or Christian sexual ethics) should feel good about this this scientific verification of the possibility of free will triumphing over desire. We are all more than our instincts, sexual or otherwise." and
"Same-sex unions are not marriages. Political regimes based on lies about human nature cannot last. Same-sex marriage takes a sacred institution, with deep roots in human nature, and tries to turn it into the plaything of politicians, a creature of the state, a bundle of rights to be tossed about between adults. Something so feebly rooted, so fragilely constructed and imposed cannot last."
Camenker is President of MassResistance, an anti-gay group which describes itself as a "pro-family action center for Massachusetts -- and beyond!"

-- Regularly claims that "gay activists" are "infiltrating classrooms under the cover of 'anti-bullying' or 'safe schools' initiatives."
-- Has taken great personal strides to question scientific opinion on sexual orientation: "Actually, none of the professional medical or mental health associations have banned -- or declared unethical -- therapies aimed at helping clients who desire to change their sexual orientation. But you're probably referring to the fact that the American Psychiatric Association [APA] removed homosexuality from its list of disorders in 1973. Still, that's a far cry from completely banning therapy from those who desire it. And it by no means represents the opinion of all the nation's medical and counseling professionals."

GLAAD notes Colson has:
-- Compared being gay to jumping off a 10-story building: "It's the reason sane people don't jump off a 10-story building. They realize that doing so would be to ignore the law of gravity and risk catastrophe. Well, in the very same way, when we violate the moral laws of the universe, we are in for a world of hurt."
-- Said of allowing gay people to serve openly in the military: "If we throw sexual lust--or eros--into the mix, we will destroy unit cohesion. The consequence will be that men will die. All for politically correct posturing that has nothing to do with winning wars."

-- Said of New York's legalization of marriage for gay couples, said: "No disrespect to our Native American friends, but this is where you hang a bloody scalp over the gallery rail. You hang these four Republican scalps over the Senate rail and every other Republican senator looks up and sees those scalps and says, 'my gosh, I'll be hanging up there beside them if I don't stay with this pro-family stuff.' And that's exactly what has to happen."
Wildmon is the founder and chairman of the American Family Association.

"Over the years, AFA [American Family Association] has consistently addressed the homosexual movement's obsession with infiltrating the public school system. Its eye-opening video 'It's Not Gay', which presents a heartbreaking look at the physical and emotional consequences of the homosexual lifestyle, has been the most popular video ever produced by AFA."
Frank Turek is a commentator for the American Family Radio.
GLAAD notes that he has said:
"If you grant special rights to homosexuals because they have homosexual desires then you have to grant special rights to polygamists and people who are incestuous and people who want to marry beasts" and
"Celebrating behavior that leads to disease and an early death is closer to hate than love...why should we be encouraging behavior that results in such tragic outcomes? If I have good reason to think you are on the road to destruction -- if a truck is about to run over you -- the only way to love you is to urge you to get out of the street. If I tell you to keep walking down that road -- that I celebrate the road you're on -- how could I hate you more?"
Bauer is a former Reagan staffer and former Family Research Council President. He is currently the head of American Values and the Campaign for Working Families.

Stanton is the Director for Family Formation Studies for Focus on the Family.
GLAAD notes Stanton has said:
"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" and
"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.'"

Daly is the President of Focus on the Family and a contributor to the Washington Post's "On Faith" column.
According to GLAAD Daly has said:
"Politicians and the press are obviously trying to minimize what the American people think on [marriage for gay couples]. They don't want us to think that the most important institution, more important than the war, more important than sickness -- it is marriage folks. If this goes, civilization goes down." and
"But the fatherhood 'effect' is not cumulative - two daddies are not better than one -- nor is a mother dispensable or replaceable. Instead of expending precious (and finite) energy and resources on selling the merits of two-father or two-mother families, the [Obama] administration would be wise to invest and encourage the loving presence of both a mom and a dad."
Garlow is the Senior Pastor of Skyline Wesleyan Church in San Diego, California.
GLAAD notes he has:
-- said that "Satan" is behind extending the freedom to marry to gay and lesbian couples: "So if I were Satan, if I were the Devil, I'd want to destroy the imagery of male and female coming together with light and joy, covenantal marriage on Earth."
-- compared children losing their parents on 9/11 to children with gay parents: "Our President gave a speech a few days ago in which he said, 'the tragedy of 9/11 was that it robbed so many children of having a mommy or a daddy.' Well, you know something Mr. President, your failure to defend marriage and to redefine marriage means that everybody who is under that redefined marriage will lack either a mommy or a daddy and that is morally wrong."
Farah is the founder and editor of the website World Net Daily and the self-proclaimed "birther king."
According to GLAAD:
-- His thoughts regarding pro-LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, & transgender) presidential appointments: "I wonder what kind of database Obama uses to locate people like [openly gay Kevin Jennings and Chai Feldblum]? Is it Monster.com? That would be appropriate. Or is it FreaksUnlimited.com? Maybe Obamanations.com? No, it's got to be Perverts.gov. I'm telling you, the entire federal government is going to have to be fumigated some day when these deviants and degenerates are finally sent packing."
-- He claimed that the August 2011 east coast earthquake was a "sign of the consequences of disobedience and indifference to our Creator."

The White House made an official statement to explain that this was completely fabricated.
- Hutcherson said of Washington Governor Chris Gregoire, who signed marriage equality into law: "She might as well change her name to John Wilkes Booth because what she's doing now is trying to put a bullet in the head of one of the greatest traditions that has ever existed and has built our society, and that is marriage between one man and one woman."
McCullough is the host of "The Kevin McCullough Show."
According to GLAAD McCullough:
-- said "being gay kills people."
-- said gay people are "damaging to society" because: "the 'gay' lifestyle does nothing to promote monogamous healthy relationships. Why?

Yet the community where these traits are not only seen, but also encouraged, is again among individuals wrapped up in the 'gay life.'"
Engle is the "visionary and co-founder" of TheCall, a traveling evangelical ministry.

-- Said of criminal sanctions against homosexuality: "For instance, the court case Lawrence v. Texas, is the court case that basically decriminalized homosexuality in the U.S. Everybody knew that when that bill passed, or when that court case shifted, then it opened the door for the legalization, for the definition, or the legalization of same-sex marriage, which is now rolling into America. We knew that. So I've always had -- yes, there needs to be a principled stand. There needs to be some kind of restraint from the homosexual agenda being able to roll over this, a nation that does not want it."
Gallagher is the founder and former President and board president of the National Organization for Marriage and current President of the Institute for Marriage and Public Policy.

-- that children with gay parents will end up "behind bars for committing violent crimes." and
"It may sound crass, but take a fan for example, and instead of having the male plug, have the female plug, and try to see if you can make it work. You're not going to be able to plug it into a wall. The fact is nature teaches you -- you don't have to have anything -- that's why a five-year-old can understand that this is against nature. That's why it's been called a crime against nature."
Barber is Associate Dean at Liberty University School of Law and one of the most visible spokespeople for the Liberty Counsel.

-- said marriage for gay couples is of the Devil: "Yes, the battle lines have been drawn, the enemy is taking ground, and many of us hardly realize that the war is on. The devil is moving forward with energy and aggression. What in the world are we doing?"
-- asked: "Are all sexual orientations gifts from God? Zoophilia, or coprophilia, the sexual stimulation by faces, or bestiality, I mean things that everyone would be repulsed by, or pedophilia. Are those gifts from God? ... How do you distinguish which sexual orientation is a gift from God and which is not?"

LaBarbera is the President of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH), which is "a national organization devoted exclusively to exposing and countering the homosexual activist agenda."

-- calls equal rights for gay Americans "one of the most spectacularly successful anti-God movements in human history."
Sprigg is a Senior Fellow for Policy Studies at the Family Research Council.
GLAAD states Sprigg:
-- says "The most effective way of reducing teen suicide attempts is not to create a 'positive social environment' for the affirmation of homosexuality. Instead, it would be to discourage teens from self-identifying as gay, lesbian, or bisexual."
-- says he wants to see being gay punished by law: "I think that the Supreme Court decision in Lawrence v. Texas, which overturned the sodomy laws in this country, was wrongly decided. I think there would be a place for criminal sanctions against homosexual behavior."

Lively is a former state director for the California branch of the American Family Association, and formed the anti-gay Watchmen on the Walls group based in Latvia.
GLAAD notes Lively:
-- called for the criminalization of "the public advocacy of homosexuality."
-- said being gay should be criminalized like marijuana: "To reverse the current trend toward sexual anarchy, society will need to establish new public policies that actively discourage sex outside of marriage, including homosexuality. Such policies should be strong enough to prevent government from facilitating, endorsing or condoning sexual activity outside of marriage, but only as restrictive on personal liberties as necessary to maintain a family-centered culture. One model for such policy might be current laws in some states that criminalize marijuana usage but provide minimal sanctions for violations. People in these states may indulge themselves privately in this harmful conduct but cannot openly recruit others into their lifestyle or use the organs of government to advance their philosophy as normal and healthy."
Wildmon is the President of the American Family Association.
GLAAD states that Wildmon:
-- has said "It makes me want to throw up, the idea of two grooms -- well that's the way a lot of people feel."

"[H]ere we have the leader of our nation and the Democrat [sic] Party celebrating sexual behavior which is contrary to nature and pushing a household structure that we know is harmful to children ... [O]ur President is so committed to normalizing homosexual conduct that he is putting the twisted sexual desires of adults ahead of the needs of children."
Tony Perkins is the President of the Family Research Council.
According to GLAAD Perkins:
-- says about gay people: "They are intolerant. They are hateful. They are vile. They are spiteful... pawns of the devil."
-- compares gay people to terrorists: "[B]ack in the 80's and early 90's I worked with the state department in anti-terrorism and we trained about fifty different countries in defending against terrorism, and it's, at its base, what terrorism is, it's a strike against the general populace simply to spread fear and intimidation so that they can disrupt and destabilize the system of government. That's what the homosexuals are doing here to the legal system."
