"Through his advocacy of ex-gay ministries, Kennedy called for the 'transformation' of LGBT Americans while ignoring scientific truths about the lack of efficacy and gross mental, physical and spiritual harm caused by so-called 'conversion therapy' programs. He used his media empire of television and radio programs to spread lies and misinformation to support his opposition to marriage equality, hate crimes legislation and employment nondiscrimination legislation. Like so many religious right leaders of his generation, Kennedy's version of religious 'truth' divided rather than united American families."
-- NGLTF Policy Institute Senior Fellow Jason Cianciotto on the death of fundamentalist minister D. James Kennedy
