NOM upset over Piers Morgan segment on marriage equality

NOM is upset over this segment on Piers Morgan in which a member of the Heritage Foundation, Ryan Anderson, was heavily outnumbered and outgunned by Piers Morgan and Suze Orman.

While NOM does have a minor point - at times it did get uncomfortable how Anderson was getting battered - for the organization to whine about unfair debates is totally hypocritical.

For the longest time, those debating on behalf of NOM - i.e. Maggie Gallagher and Brian Brown - haven't necessarily behaved themselves during a debate.

 Part of me would think of that "we don't want to stoop to their level" argument. But then another part of me doesn't exactly feel all that bad that when knocked off of his talking points, Anderson couldn't rise to the challenge.  Perhaps the treatment he received stemmed from the fact that when asked questions, he repeated the same talking points in an unconvincing manner thereby giving Morgan, Orman, and the audience the impression that unless provoked a bit, he was going to duck and dodge.

But judge for yourself:

I am so glad to see him knocked down a few pegs! They just keep repeating the same crap over and over because they can't get away with saying the crap they do in their own circles.
He gave no reason other than the mom and dad thing. Same as most of the signs at the march.
Piers was correct in saying at 30 years old the guy was in the minority for his age and that people are changing quickly on the issue.
I believe SCOTUS will kill DOMA because it is un-American.
Thanks. I would have never seen this otherwise.
