Lots of NOM news today. First off, there’s a new National Organization for Marriage video out, and it’s packed full of untruths. Joe.My.God explains:
As we learned long ago, NOM doesn’t care if their lies are broadcast across thousands and thousands of blogs and progressive websites, they just keep repeating the same discredited bullshit. Count the lies in this new ad for their DC hate march. If you miss any, Jeremy Hooper has fisked the entire clip moment-by-moment.
Over at Pam’s House Blend, Alvin McEwen reports on the comments NOM’s John Eastman made about Chief Justice John Roberts’ adoption of two children:
The leader of a prominent anti-gay organization called Supreme Court Chief John Roberts’ decision to adopt children the “second-best option,” the AP reports. “You’re looking at what is the best course societywide to get you the optimal result in the widest variety of cases. That often is not open to people in individual cases. Certainly adoption in families headed, like Chief Roberts’ family is, by a heterosexual couple, is by far the second-best option,” said John Eastman, chairman of the National Organization for Marriage.
Did NOM just jump the shark?
And over at On Top Magazine, they pile on the NOM video’s claim that a majority of Americans oppose marriage equality:
“The reality is that the majority of Americans want marriage to stay between a man and a woman. When people have the chance to vote on redefining marriage, the overwhelming majority voted to keep it the way it’s always been in our country: Between a man and a woman.” … Surveys over the past 18 months have shown a majority of Americans support extending marriage rights to gay couples. During the last election cycle, voters in three states legalized such unions and Minnesotans became the first to reject an amendment seeking to exclude gay couples from marriage.
