NY's top anti-equality group: Resist gays' unions, as if they were texting, cigarette-smoking, seatbelt-shunning teens

by Jeremy Hooper

The so-called New Yorker's Family Research Foundation, fresh off their weekend effort of disseminating church bulletin inserts claiming that homosexuality is 'perverted & twisted' and will lead to 'destruction of your immortal soul', is now (quietly) offering up some sample letters for their supporters to send to newspaper editors. Here is but one of NYFRF's suggestions:

Right. Because encouraging loving, two-partner bonding is totally the path to -- more STDs?! HUH?! Does that seriously make sense to even the most ardently anti-gay mind?!

But then again, this is the same organization whose president, Rev. Jason McGuire, has likened marriage equality to child abuse, blamed this whole fight on Satan, and claimed that he's in this to save people like Sen. Tom Duane and Assemblyman Danny O'Donnell (both gay) from "an eternity in Hell": and whose senior lobbyist presents this whole civil rights conversation as a war, churches as recruiting stations, and the Bible itself as a weapon meant to clobber certain kinds of humans. A rational and measured assessment of this civil matter as it applies to the actuality of our known world certainly doesn't seem to be their strongest organizational suit.
