Oh, NOM, NOM, NOM. In a rousing press release titled “NOM Responds to HRC Attack!,” the National Organization for Marriage defends its hilarious gay storm defense of marriage ad. The “attack” came from the Human Rights Campaign’s assertion that the spot is “a fake ad for fake problems”—-lies about the threat of gay marriage, voiced by paid actors.
President Maggie Gallagher chose to respond not by defending her group’s ad, but by claiming that the gays and lesbians behind the HRC are the real liars, because they lie so much.
“HRC’s record of truth and honesty about their intentions is not that impressive. They once said marriage amendments weren’t necessary because there were no federal court cases. Now there is one,” writes Gallagher. Oooooooooooh!
Full schoolyard smack-down after the jump.
“HRC’s record of truth and honesty about their intentions is not that impressive. They once said marriage amendments weren’t necessary because there were no federal court cases. Now there is one.”
“They called us liars when we said public schools will teach about gay marriage if its the law—but they do in Massachusetts. Serious religious liberty scholars from Eugene Volokh to Doug Laycock to Robin Wilson acknowledge the central driving idea behind gay marriage—there is no difference between same-sex and opposite sex unions and supporters of marriage are engaging in discrimination if they think differently—will have consequences for the freedoms of traditional faith communities. To pretend otherwise is to be profoundly unserious—if not deceptive—about what gay marriage means.”
