Only 13 groups have the SPLC's 'anti-gay hate group' label. Here's NOM applauding one of them...

by Jeremy Hooper

A new height of eyebrow-raising for the National Organization For Marriage. They're now quoting (and emboldening) the Traditional Values Coalition, one of only thirteen groups to have met an extreme enough bar to earn an "anti-gay hate group" label from the Southern Poverty Law Center:

Yea, NOM? What else was TVC right about? Were they right when they painted DADT repeal as a "Memorial Day Massacre"? Was TVC founder Lou Sheldon right when he served as the E.D. of the gay teacher-banning Briggs Initiative (something even Ronald Reagan opposed)? Was TVC right when they called an important piece of legislation the "Barney Frank She-Male Shower Bill," or when they referred to a congressional hearing dealing with transgender protections as a "freak show"? What about when they put Jesus on Wanted posters as a way to pit that particular religious figure against gays who support hate crime protections? Or how about the many times they have lied about sexual orientation, claiming there are over 30 of them (including having sex with a soldier's amputation)? Oh, or when they Photoshopped a smiling Barack Obama in front of the burning WTC towers and onto a Nazi propaganda poster? Or maybe when they completely flipped a Congressional transcript so that it became more convenient for their self-serving purposes? Etc, etc.

Sorry, Brian and Maggie, but we really don't think TVC is in the position to "slam" anyone or anything. Except, of course, the credibility of those who present them as valid voices of love, compassion, and/or truth!
