What Does The International Healing Foundation Do?

IHF2012990

Last year, I reported that the International Healing Foundation struck gold in 2011 with an apparent donation of over 500k.

PATH Member PFOX Files Amicus Brief in the Prop 8 Case

Citing the "change is possible" mantra, PFOX has filed an amicus brief in the Prop 8 case arguing against marriage rights for gays. This is not surprising but I have some observations about their strategy.In this brief, PFOX continues its odd logic of considering ex-gays to be a protected class while at the same time hoping to remove/prevent protected class status for gays. On page 4, the brief asserts:Government authorities and other organizations recognize ex-gays as a group which … [Read more...]
