From my online buddy Jeremy Hooper comes a key to who the National Organization for Marriage is associating with in its game plan to get gay marriage banned in Minnesota.
On the heels of last night's vote to get gay marriage on the 2012 ballot comes the announcing of a webpage done by NOM in coalition with the Minnesota Family Council:
But when looking at the Minnesota Family Council's webpage, one gets the impression that that organization's stance against gay marriage is less to do with “preserving marriage,” but rather adhering to the monstrous stereotypes which lgbts have had to endure for years.
The following inaccurate statistics connecting the lgbt community with bestiality, pedophilia, urine, and feces come from Answers to Gay Rights Arguments, which is included Minnesota Family Council's webpage:
That's right. NOM is partnering with an organization which pushes discredited Paul Cameronesque lies about the lgbt community. And just so you know, the organization does cite Paul Cameron's group – the Family Research Institute – specifically in the section of its webpage called Gay Rights:
You will remember, of course, that the Family Research Institute has been called a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center for pushing ugly propaganda against the lgbt community.
The irony of the entire thing is that one of the main complaints/talking points of NOM is that it has been unfairly labeled as a bigoted organization for its stance against gay marriage.
The question here is how can NOM continue to voice this complaint/talking point if it does not disavow the anti-gay lies of its coalition partner?
And we all know that NOM will not disavow these lies.
