NOM’s ‘defense alliance’ backfiring
Now that it looks like challenges to Prop 8 and DOMA will win based on no harm demonstrable to heterosexual marriage, NOM is rallying behind Religious Freedom. However as the post points out you don’t see Religion being repressed, but rather religion being repressive.
The National Organization for Marriage recently began what it calls the Marriage Anti-Defamation Alliance (Marriage ADA), which is a campaign to supposedly spotlight incidents of “Christians” being “intimidated” or “persecuted” for standing up for the so-called traditional view of marriage (i.e. one man + one woman).
Marriage ADA features video testimonies of supposed “victims” of said intimidation.
But Equality Matters has raised a very interesting question which echoes something which has been trolling about in my mind the day the second “victim” - Jerry Buell - came out.
Is this thing backfiring on NOM?
Equality Matters took a clear look at the five examples NOM has featured demonstrating so-called “gay intimidation” and found them to be proving the opposite - i.e. these folks are not being victimized and NOM is demanding special privileges for those stand against marriage equality, even to the point of not being accurate about their stories
