'Whoops! UK Catholic Church undermines NOM's fake study, core message' and other Friday midday news briefs

Earlier this week, I wrote a post accusing the National Organization for Marriage of stealing an image from the 1963 March on Washington (which was coordinated by an openly gay African-American - Bayard Rustin and where MLK made his famous "I Have A Dream" speech)  to use for its upcoming march against marriage equality. There was a lot of speculation as to whether or not the picture NOM used was in fact from the 1963 March on Washington. Thanks to a Facebook friend, we have a clear picture of the truth. Take this graphic and send it out to all:

In it's zeal to to attack marriage equality, the U.K. Catholic Church undermines that fake study NOM helped push which claimed that gays aren't good parents AND NOM's core message against marriage equality - i.e. that marriage equality should not be allowed because children "need" a mother and a father in the home.

Here's how their argument fails. If NOM were so sure that a child 'needs'a mother and father, they would be 100% behind legislation to prevent any military personnel who have children from entering a war zone. In fact, they've not said a word now that the military is going to allow women in combat positions.

But they do not support any such legislation and they have never opposed men and women who have children from fighting in our wars. In fact, they never talk about that issue ever.

So, their opposition is purely religious in nature and has nothing to do with actual boots on the ground, as it were.
