The clip above is the first time I have ever seen an interview with the National Organization for Marriage chairman John Eastman.
He was on Fox News today criticizing the National Cathedral because of its decision to offer services to gay couples. To me, the points he makes are irrelevant because they emphasize his hypocrisy as well as that of NOM.
We have heard ad naseum from NOM about how marriage equality would interfere with the “religious liberty” of churches and people with faiths which tell them that homosexuality is a sin.
In an interview last year, Eastman identified himself as a Catholic. The National Cathedral is from a different faith, i.e. the Episcopal Church.
So why is Eastman and NOM meddling into the affairs of those who practice a different religion which chooses to welcome gay couples with open arms?
That’s a question which should have been asked during the interview and needs to be asked of Eastman in the future.
Does NOM really believe in the concept of “religious liberty,” or does the group want to dictate its beliefs to those of other faiths in regards to marriage equality?
