Adoption now official: NOM the proud parent of one over-the-top Facebook wall

by Jeremy Hooper

For months now we've been telling you how the National Organization For Marriage has been slowly incorporating Louis "gays want pedophilia, polygamy, and prostitution" Marinelli's online initiatives into their strategy. Now they have made it even more official, declaring that Louis' often incendiary "Protect Man One Woman" Facebook page is now NOM's organizational home:

[NOM's official Facebook wall]

So it's now one billion percent official, folks: The incredibly eye-opening, "ex-gay"-backing "Protect Marriage: One Man, One Woman" Facebook page that was created by newfound NOM strategist (and bus driver) Louis Marinelli is NOM's "new home on Facebook." Just a reminder: This is the same Louis J. Marinelli who has used Paul Cameron's research to say that "gays have shorter life spans," who thinks that all gays are single even if they are married or in a committed relationship, who thinks that Peter LaBarbera and his fringe "Americans For Truth" group is merely "tell[ing] the truth about homosexuality," who says that marriage equality is "a mockery and a hijacking of the civil rights movement," who flat-out calls gays an abomination, who says that "Deviance" describes actions or behaviours that violate cultural norms - homosexuality is far from a cultural norm. Therefore, it is deviant," who claims that "Homosexuality and gay marriage are wrong and harmful to society," who thinks that "there shouldn't be any recognition of homosexual relationships because that is saying that homosexuality is OK," who says that "what they do is blantantly [sic] immoral. :) [smile his own], " who has compared our unions to that which might exist between a sterile brother and sister, who resorts to blanket character assassination in saying that one should "#nevertrust activists of the homosexual agenda - they are deceitful people who care only about themselves and not what's best for society," and who has made an egregious video declaring that modern LGBT rights activists want the "3 P's: Prostitution, pedophilia, and polygamy":

This is the same Marinelli who has also hit up this site's comment threads, continuing his attempts to link gays to pedophilia and polygamy. And also remember: This Marinelli-crafted Facebook wall is the same one where a commenter recently suggested that California should be "glassed with nuclear warheads," one where gays have been called "victims of mental illness," where commenters pose questions about whether or not "gays are heterosexuals misguided by satan," and where jaw-drops are a daily occurrence. All adopted by NOM.

We remain shocked that folks as politically savvy as Maggie Gallagher and Robert George would allow this to happen. But whatever -- they have. So use it. And spread it widely.

**UPDATE: Among the pages that this newly official NOM Facebook page counts as a favorite? Regina Griggs' incredibly fringe "ex-gay" advocacy group:

**EARLIER: Reliably volatile messaging's on the wall, but NOM doesn't seem to care. Seems to like it, even. [G-A-Y]

Who needs a militant agenda? NOM has allowed selves (and message) to be hijacked [G-A-Y]
