|It wasn't just conservative legislation that was being passed around during ALEC's meeting. Among the materials handed out to every attendee were anti-LGBT pamphlets from the Family Research Council, including the 'Top Ten Myths About Homosexuality' and the 'Top Ten Harms Of Same-Sex 'Marriage''. The supposed myths included 'people are born gay,' 'sexual orientation can never change,' 'homosexual conduct is not harmful to one's physical health,' and 'homosexuals are no more likely to molest children than heterosexuals.' In its second pamphlet, the FRC told conference-goers that expanding marriage to include same-sex couples will somehow mean 'fewer people would marry,' 'fewer people would remain monogamous,' and polygamy will soon result.|
