Once again National Organization for Marriage illustrates that marriage equality in the United States hasn’t delivered the dire consequences they’ve been predicting. Today NOM has announced a video via an email with the dire-sounding subject line, “Why We Must Not Lose at the Supreme Court”. It goes on to say:
Today I want to share with you a video reminding us how important it is that we remain active and engaged to demonstrate America’s support for marriage leading up to the Supreme Court’s consideration of this pivotal case. This new Marriage Anti-Defamation Alliance video interview shows what the consequences of losing this battle could be.
Dr. Steve Tourloukis was forced to sue the government of Canada for his right as a parent to determine how to best educate his own children!
Did you get that last line? This is a legal dispute in CANADA, which last I checked is a whole different country than the United States with its own laws, government and judicial system. What happens there is not a fair predictor of what will happen here.
If this Canadian story is the best NOM can do to “prove” the alleged social evils of legalizing civil marriage for same-sex couples in the United States, with marriage equality already a reality in nine states plus Washington, D.C., then I’d say they’ve all but admitted that their dire predictions for the future of America have been wrong.
Here’s the video. And try not to laugh at the man as he keeps misspeaking about his own — I mean his kids’, yeah, his kids’ — firmly held religious convictions.
