According to the North Carolina Secretary of State’s Office, four brothers and a sister from the Haas family all worked for the National Organization for Marriage.
Justin Haas served as director of operations; Mary Haas has worked as office manager; Matthew Haas is a founder of faith-based companies (Syndicate Pictures, Syndicate Technologies, etc.) that supply services to NOM; Stephen Haas has served as an independent contractor in NOM’s offices; and Joseph Haas served as an independent contractor in NOM’s offices in 2008.
Justin Haas sits on the Development Advisory Council of the Family Institute of Connecticut which, in addition to the Catholic Church, was the main opponent to marriage equality in that state.
The patriarch of the family, John Haas, has written extensively about gay people needing to be "cured." Haas claims:
There are many reasons why people suffer from SSA disorder. Some “discover” this tendency within them. Others grow into it through pursuits of pleasure or experimentation. Some use it to punish themselves or others. Whether the disorder has some deep, unknown roots over which one has virtually no control, or whether it’s a developed disorder resulting from bad choices, it leaves an individual disposed toward activities and a lifestyle that are dangerous — physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Fortunately there is hope for those who suffer from the disorder. The National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality reports that significant numbers of homosexual persons have undergone treatment and had their sexual drives properly ordered. These findings are a beacon of hope to those suffering from SSA, as well as for their family and friends who desire their happiness and good health. Finally, for those who for whatever reason cannot be cured, there is a support group known as Courage to help them live safe, moral, chaste lives. Those who continue to suffer from this disorder can find true help through an orientation toward their Savior and Redeemer, “the Orient from on High,” and the life that He offers them in Himself.
