NOM supporting vicious homophobe in NC and other Thursday midday news briefs

Rev. Baity wants to 'Return America'; NOM now helping him find receipt - NOM is now supporting Rev. Ron Baity's "protect marriage" rally in NC and is linking to his "Return America" site. As the link shows, Baity has said that lgbts aren't normal and is promoting homosexuality in schools. Now wouldn't those comments contradict the following comments by NOM's Maggie Gallagher during a recent Congressional hearing when she said she thinks its unfortunate that people misinterpret things she says as a condemnation of "gay people" and their parenting skills." I guess the actions of her group aren't included in that sadness about "misinterpretation."

Poll: 75% of New Yorkers support either full marriage or civil unions (i.e. oppose typical 'protect marriage' mindset) - Meanwhile a so-called morality group in New York blatantly lie about a poll.

Newt Gingrich And The Dominionists - I wouldn't vote for Newt Gingrich for President even if it would keep the world from catching on fire. All I would is pass out the s'mores.

Delaware governor signs civil unions bill into law for gay, lesbian couples beginning in 2012 - Not bad. It's a start.

Let's all join together to keep tabs on NOM's lies

Maggie Gallagher of NOM
The National Organization for Marriage consistently talks about how the organization is working to "protect marriage" and how to "traditional marriage" isn't bigotry.

One wonders if Maggie Gallagher and Brian Brown of NOM took classes from political pollster and consultant Frank Luntz in terms of how they stay on that message even the face of the fact that the message is a complete dodge.

You have to give them props for that.

However, that's all you can give them props for. In terms of integrity and truth, one almost wishes that there was a grade lower than "F" to give the organization.

So I have decided to do something as a way to remind folks of the emptiness of NOM's message.

I am keeping tabs on just how often the group and its members contradicts its claim of simply "protecting marriage."

To me, NOM's actions are bigotry, but it goes farther than that.  If you took a look at NOM's past actions, you would find that the organization  has been engaging in extremely un-Christian tactics in order to gain success for its endeavors. Granted, nothing illegal has been going on (at least as far as I know) but NOM's actions belie the organization's claim that it's simply an innocent group protecting marriage:

  • The latest questionable action comes courtesy of Jeremy Hooper. On it's blog, NOM is implying that a random reader of the Minnesota's Star Tribune wrote a letter to the editor the state's marriage amendment. However, as Hooper details, the man - William LeMire - isn't necessarily random.
  • Then there are the recent developments in New York with NOM's anti-gay marriage commercial using refuted information.
  • Then there is Maggie Gallagher's awful appearance at a Congressional hearing on "protecting marriage" where she contradicted her past statements against the lgbt community and same-sex households.
  • How NOM pushed the propaganda of a known Massachusetts hate group in Maryland.

The list isn't complete yet. But like that old saying goes - "it ain't, but it's gonna be."

After all, NOM gives us so much to work with.

Defending traditional marriage certainly isn't bigotry but demonizing the lgbt community to defend traditional marriage IS bigotry. And lying to defend traditional marriage is even worse.
