At last year's World Congress of Families conference in Madrid, Richard "beat a pillow" Cohen...

...led a seminar that was ominously titled "Solutions to Homosexual Behavior." Program listing a video follows:

So what does this kind of teaching earn the World Congress of Families? Why it lands them on the sponsor list for NOM's upcoming "March For Marriage," of course:

Kind of off message, I would think. I mean, if I were trying to show the Supreme Court that I'm not driven by animus for LGBT people, I'd probably stay away from "homosexual behavior" and its, um—"solutions."

Then again, I don't know why I'm that surprised by the partnership. After all, NOM president Brian Brown spoke at this VERY SAME World Congress of Families conference in Madrid:

It seems the "family" world with which NOM is willing to be in congress is becoming much more accommodating to certain teachings. I guess that's what happens when moderates abandon you.
