Mormon NOM… An Absurb Distraction

November 29, 2010

Mormon/Catholic sponsored NOM


Brian Brown, President of the National Organization for Marriage, reacts:

“This is an absurd distraction emanating from a once-great organization’s real mission—with all the actual hate groups out there, how can Southern Poverty Law Center stoop so low?” said Brown.

While the current report stops short of labeling NOM a “hate group” at this time, many other social conservative groups are so-designated. In a confusing move, the SLPC report lists 18 groups as “anti-gay” and suggests that at least 13 will be designated hate groups this spring.

via NOM Calls Southern Poverty Law Center’s New “Hate” Designation an “Absurd Distraction” – National Organization for Marriage.

Seems to me that NOM is growing up and learning from their Mormon / Catholic parents.  Soften the rhetoric, pretend you’re fine with Gays, but saving them from Marriage (and equal rights protections) and do it with a smile. 

Now NOM is crying victim?  Is it supposed to be OK for them to spend a million dollars in hate advertisements, rhetoric, bus tours, running anti-gay ads during Prop 8 vote and pretend to be offended when SPLC puts them in the same category as a hate group?  Sorry but Karma’s a bitch!  If you don’t want to be grouped with hate groups, DON’T ACT, WALK and TALK like one!
