NOM's tasteless comments about Rep. Polis's newborn son

There are times that the National Organization for Marriage is so anti-gay that it burns, such as the post on its blog regarding the birth of Congressman Jared Polis's  newborn son:

A simple congratulations would have been nice. Or, since the organization does not agree with same-sex couples raising children (or existing in dignity), maybe a little silence would have been in order.

We can all predict what's going to happen next. Should NOM catch any flack from this, the organization will quickly whine about how it's being "persecuted," leaving many of us to wonder what ever happened to the good old days when "Christians" could make tasteless comments about newborns without reprisal.

Seems to me that a so-called moral organization shouldn't sound like bullies on the playground. That's what NOM comes across as here - bullies on a playground poking fun at a little boy for living in a same-sex household:

"You don't have a mother! You don't have a mother!"

They don't merely sound like bullies. They are bullies.

But thank you for saying it, and so vividly.

That's soo creepy... THAT mean and hateful towards a NEWBORN CHILD??? This is... I don't know what to say... these people are inflamed with the fire of hatred toward other people. They need good psychiatrists to help them.

One who throws mud on others makes first of all his hands unclean. These people throw so much hatred and insults on others... their mouths are SOOOO dirty...

Kid has loving parents, that's all that matters; why does the gender of the parent(s) matter so much to these nutjobs?

They're no less a family than a hetero couple with a kid. It's just family. Full stop.

They seem to blocking a lot of comments. They block my comment congratulating a lesbian couple for raiding two fine boys but allowed a pro Nommer to post a nasty insult to the woman. Geez, what a humane bunch of people. NOT.
