Most equality activists oppose NOM's ridiculous truth-stretching
We've seen the National Organization For Marriage push ridiculously skewed poll results before. But this headline is just beyond:
NOM's sole source for making this claim? A local Patch report, wherein reporter Cleon Alert quotes eight people who he spoke to on a neighborhood street corner. No, I'm not kidding you: That is literally all they are working from here. NOM is taking this one random report, in which five Bed-Stuy locals say they are against same-sex marriage and three express support, and using it to say that this Brooklyn neighborhood is opposed to marriage equality for gay couples.
Be sure to stay tuned for future NOM findings, as we hear president Brian Brown will next take his own family's response to the question "what do you want for dinner?" and turn it into a press release declaring American children to be fond of pizza.
*Oh, and btw: If we want to play this incredibly informal polling game, then the majority of the comments on Mr. Alert's piece (8 out of 10, as of this writing) support marriage equality.
