Analysis / Bias
In review, IOF promotes anti-LGBTQ and abortion propaganda through their online blog platform. Several sources have called IOF an anti-LGBTQ hate group, including the SPLC. The SPLC states the IOF’s “world conferences serve as a key nexus for religious right leaders and activists and the formulation of policies that are detrimental to LGBT people and reproductive health, and they provide a platform for anti-LGBT rhetoric and conspiracy theories.”
Overall, we rate IOF Questionable based on extreme right-wing bias, promotion of propaganda, and others labeling them as a hate group. (D. Van Zandt 3/24/2018) Updated (05/02/2020)
