Wow, even NOM's stock photos are largely faith-motivated?

by Jeremy Hooper

In the mood for a funny/interesting/telling aside about that photo the National Organization For Marriage is now running on all of its "Defend DOMA" posts?

Well, here's one: The shot comes from a stock photographer, Zvonimir Atletic, who is best known for his Catholic photographs. Just look at the halo that surrounds the image:

In fact, the photographer's portfolio, making up 44 pages in total, is about 98% Christian (and Catholic in particular) and only about 2% secular. So in short: It's the perfect visual representation for NOM's so clearly faith-based (and Catholic in particular) war against gay people's CIVIL rights!
