NOM's Maryland4Marriage.com site: We hope site's runners are as transparent as its partisan, faith-motivated creator

by Jeremy Hooper

On his public Facebook wall, Michael "Moshe" Starkman has posted some doozie comments about the Democratic party and Jewish support for the same:

He's also promoted that "great blog piece" wherein Robert Gagnon says homosexuality in analogous to both pedophilia and incest:

And, in subsequent comments, Moshe supported God's supposedly non-negotiable condemnation:

Okay. Fair enough. He, a former president of the Montgomery County Young Republicans and GOP candidate for Congress, has every right to hold whatever partisan and/or religious beliefs he wishes and to share those views publicly on Facebook.

But why do these beliefs hold at least some degree of interest to LGBT rights activists engaging in our modern conversation about *CIVIL* marriage?

Well, because Mr. Starkman runs a technology company:

A technology company that has created the newly-launched Maryland For Marriage site, where social conservatives are gearing up to put the state's hopefully-soon-to-be-enacted marriage right before a public vote:

A website supported by one National Organization For Marriage:

This will be the coalition that we will surely be dealing with just as soon as a *CIVIL* marriage bill is signed into *CIVIL* law. And all involved will surely deny that their effort is inextricably faith-based or highly partisan in nature. This choice of technology providers is just one more "uh huh, right" in what will surely be a long list.
