NOM's 'Protect Marriage' colleagues: Dislikes on Trikes

by Jeremy Hooper

So you know that incredibly incendiary Lou Marinelli guy who NOM has brought into their ranks as an official "strategist" and summer tour director? Yea, well -- he's apparently the kind of activist who's anti-gay enough to take photos of local Pride window displays for the purposes of making some kind of anti-LGBT point:

This is simply an innocent display, posted at a shop catering to LGBT people, meant to honor Finland's upcoming Pride weekend (end of July). And yet official NOM strategist Marinelli is just so "traditional" that he felt compelled to take a photo of this display, shoot it off to his colleagues at his now-NOM-embraced Facebook page, where they proceed to liken it, an innocent portrait of youth, to "a bike with flags representing sex acts"?

This is fringe, MassResistance-like territory. And it is all now operating as an officially sanctioned part of the National Organization For Marriage.

Rhetorical bullet, meet Gallagher foot.

*SEE ALSO: Marinelli was also on hand in the very LGBT-unfriendly St. Petersburg, Russia, promoting his NOM-embraced website on the very day that six gay people were arrested for simply counter-demonstrating against homophobia. Here's the photo of Marinelli proudly carrying his sign.
