A group picketed in streets with signs about gays spitting in God's eye. Oh, and Westboro showed up too

One of the photos the National Organization For Marriage is proudly running on its official Facebook page:

Yes, that's right: A group of people all carrying signs reading "God Cannot Be Mocked." A wholly religious implication that same-sex couples are somehow spitting in the eye of God: That is what this group, which presents itself as America's authority on *CIVIL* marriage law, is joyously pushing in order to promote yesterday's eye-opening rally in the streets of NYC.

They're not even faking it anymore. The National Organization For Marriage wants to exalt religious condemnation above civil rights. To do so, they are cultivating divisive, uber-offensive viewpoints about LGBT people's worth and intent in order to inscribe certain, heterosexist, faith-based ideas into public policy.

So okay then, fine. To extend the Galatians 6:7 concept reference in the signs: You reap what you sow. And if NOM wants to sow the seeds of religious animus (as they so clearly did yesterday), then what they will reap is a complete and utter rebuff from anyone, in any party who wishes to have a civil conversation about this matter of American freedoms.
