We know NOM's rights-stripping voting habits are un-American, but this is ridiculous...

by Jeremy Hooper

Wanna know something funny about NOM's latest ad attacking those Minnesotans who are in favor of civil equality? Well, how about this: The stock video clip that the discriminatory group uses to represent the supposedly all-American custom of voting on a minority's civil rights...

One would think that if NOM wants to prattle on about the "31 states that have voted to protect marriage," they could at least find a clip from one of the states where an embarrassingly un-American vote was cast, and not an area that (a) is proudly un-American by virtue of geography, and (b) proudly has a national civil partnerships system!
