Bias is good for industry, says NOM & an SPLC-designated hate group
The National Organization For Marriage is now partnering with the American Family Association (an SPLC-designated "hate group," it must be noted) in order to place the following ad in a local Indiana newspaper (Columbus Republic):
Well that's one way for Maggie to more widely syndicate her column.
But you know, NOM and crew can deny the negative impact of marriage bans all they want. But I can tell you firsthand: I am someone who would not, at this point in my life, live or work in a state with such an amendment. And there are many others like me, a reality that is only going to increase over time.
Now, on the flip: Are there some people who might ONLY live in a state where the most precious governing document has been altered for the expressed purpose of discriminating against certain taxpayers? Perhaps. So that is what must be weighed: Which is the more sustainable value, equality or discrimination. I'd argue the former, ever more so as the calendar goes latter.
*UPDATE: Look at what NOM's partners at the AFA of IN want for gay people:
Hmm. Is scientifically-discredited "reparative therapy" good for industry? Good for NOM's reputation?
