The organization "Truth Wins Out" (TWO), which moved to Chicago from Vermont last November, launched its work in Illinois last week. Wayne Besen (photo right), the founder of TWO, says the mission of his organization is to "debunk the myths and lies spread by anti-gay organizations.
One of TWO's initial goals is keeping an eye on organizations or therapists who practice "restorative therapy" for those struggling with homosexuality. Illinois legislators Kelly Cassidy and William Delgado recently introduced a bill to outlaw the therapy in Illinois (HERE).
TWO's second goal is to target what they call "anti-gay" organizations. "Every time we put down one of these guys, another materializes," Besen said.
TWO is looking for volunteers to help them research, target, and destroy these individuals and groups. "We're going after some pretty big fish, so we're going to need a pretty big pan," said Besen.
