She's a racist and homophobe whose mind is stuck in the 1950s.
Her son Andrew is the founder of "Conservapedia", an attempt at creating a right-wing conservative alternative to Wikipedia, where he tries to remove any evidence that his brother, John, is gay, although he's apparently self-hating and helps with his family's anti-gay efforts. http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/1992/09/27/schlafly-s-son-out-of-the-gop-closet.html

Long before "family values" became an election year mantra for the Republican Party, Phyllis Schlafly was a frontline soldier for the conservative social agenda. The founder of the influential Eagle Forum has waged war against abortion, the equal rights amendment, sex education in the public schools and so-called alternative lifestyles. At the GOP convention in Houston last month she supported the party platform's condemnation of same sex marriages and gay civil rights. But last week her 41 year-old son confirmed that Schlafly's own family life has been something less than the Ozzie and Harriet ideal so righteously extolled by conservatives. In an interview with the San Francisco Examiner, Schlafly's son acknowledged that he was gay.
However, John Schlafly, an attorney who lives with his parents in Alton, Ill., emerged from the closet with indignation not for conservatives but for other gays. He steadfastly defended the Republican platform and his mother, who he said was "not a monster." He told The Washington Post that "a band of screechy gay activists and Washington based pressure groups" had hysterically overreacted to events in Houston."The truth is: family-values people, of which my mother is a part, are not out to bash gay people," said Schlafly, who was "outed" earlier this month by QW, a New York-based gay weekly. He even had praise for former presidential candidate Pat Buchanan, who encouraged GOP delegates to wage a "cultural war" on homosexuals.
