NOM stoops to nasty twitter attack on same-sex families, marriage equality

How low can the National Organization for Marriage go in attacking marriage equality and same-sex families? Apparently this low via Thomas Peters, its communications director.

Marriage equality does not deprive children of anything. Also, same-sex families give children a home with love. Peters' question is a straw man argument based upon the fallacy that the only family unit which matters or exists is the mother/father dynamic.

It's a nasty question which implies that gays are harming children. However, a benefit is that yet again the mask of respectability which NOM tries to front is slipping off.

Jeremy Hooper has already given an excellent answer to this ridiculous question. However, if you feel so inclined, by all means use the hashtag and give your own answer. Remember though that any nasty or profanity-laced answer will be used by NOM against us.

4 Ways Christians Are Getting the Gay Debate Wrong - Excellent post which should have more attention. And I would venture to say that a lot more people besides Christians make these mistakes.

Family Research Council - Save the Boy Scouts from the 'unclean' gays!

Last night, the Family Research Council held a telecast called "Stand With Scouts" designed to exploit fears about gays being allowed in the Scouts. I didn't watch but, thanks to Jeremy Hooper, we have a snippet of the event. And it gives an indication as to how low FRC and its supporters stoop to demonize the lgbt community. Nauseating as hell.
