Oh, and look: NOM's now incorporating the "angry gay protestors" meme, building on the victimization routine that they rehearsed all during their failure of a summer tour. So essentially they've created an ad 100% about a majority's supposed right to vote on a minority population's civil rights, yet in a particularly absurd version of the blame the victim game, are turning around and saying that it's their denied, dehumanized, discriminated against target that is somehow out of line.

Hopefully their shame won't forget to write.
