Tim Gill obfuscates the serious questions, says org. whose May 15th rally raised very serious questions

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2011-05-16 At 8.44.47 Am-1In the past 24 hours, we've read a National Organization for Marriage mailer (portion at left, full piece here) in which the national organization accuse gays and their associated acceptance as being a "poison" to kids' minds. We hear a preacher at a NOM-sponsored rally say that gays are "worthy to death." Another pastor at the same rally said "breaking traditional marriage" will bring "judgement and wrath of God." Sticking with that same rally: Leslie Diaz, the wife of the New York state senator most prominently pushing discrimination, Ruben Diaz, Sr. (D), said that gays are "enslaved and enchained by homosexuality" and an "abomination" (while NOM president Brian Brown looked on, all smiles); NOM marched side-by-side with eye-opening groups like TFP; And we also heard Brian Brown completely muddy the lines of church state separation, even going so far as to suggest it's a lie.

And of course the above is all just within the past day. We have documented five years of NOM antics in which the organization and its heads use personal faith to stifle *CIVIL* marriage equality.

But never mind all that. For in a new blog post, NOM staffers are telling us all that it's in fact gay political financier Tim Gill who is really muddying this marriage debate:

It's hard to see how more Tim Gill-style politicking will help Americans be capable of fairly deciding the serious questions being put to them today.

Right, NOM. "Fairly deciding the serious questions" is precisely what you want. Uh huh. Sure. We believe you. Honestly.

Just as long as the pre-conceived answers to those questions (a) keep gays stifled behind contrived moral outrage and deprived behind a wave of repudiated lies, and (b) are phrased in a way that neatly detaches NOM from all responsibility.
