Video: We've all been exposing NOM. We need more people to care

by Jeremy Hooper

We first unearthed this clip back in August:

8/9/10:

Now it's the lead bite in a new Human Rights Campaign video:


[NOM Exposed]

Okay, so the random NOM supporters are one thing, certainly showing the type of flame that the organization's incendiary rhetoric often invites. But back to Maggie, well-paid guiding voice of the "pro-marriage" movement: We'd also include these two nuggets, from back before Maggie saw a need to be more measured in her gay-centric words:

5/14/2001, Maggie uses Dr. Robert Spitzer's study in a way that goes against his own wishes and findings: "I believe there is rather powerful evidence that human beings are a two-sex species, designed for sexual rather than asexual reproduction. If this is true, then the absence of desire for the opposite sex represents, at a minimum, a sexual dysfunction much as impotence or infertility. Human beings seeking help in overcoming sexual dysfunctions deserve our respect and support (and may I mention, President Bush, more research dollars?)." [Source]

3/20/2000, Maggie defends Dr. Laura: "In a simple biological framework abstracted from all religion and morality, homosexuality is like infertility. It is a sexual disability preventing certain individuals from participating in the normal reproductive patterns of the human species." [Source]

Or back to June of 2008, when Maggie relied on her personal Catholicism to discuss the "several kinds of sins" that committed gay couples are supposedly committing. Or actually in this instance, it wasn't only same sex couples that Mags went after -- she brought all straight supporters of marriage equality into the sinful mix too:

Or another Janet Parshall appearance from August of 2009, where Mags again invoked biblical morality by claiming that the Iowa Supreme Court -- and, by extension, gays -- are striking at the heart of both Leviticus and Genesis:

And so on and so on.

For six years, we've believed that the opposition's curtains are in need of some heavy lifting. For three years, we've felt that way about NOM in particular. As we move into a new one, many of us in the indefatigable blogging community are hopeful for more and greater assists from the organizations whose disposable resources far outpace our own.
