Does NOM think world's ending, gays led to NY's darkest day? Because NOM's front-line marcher does

by Jeremy Hooper

Interesting that the National Organization For Marriage is running this photo on the official organizational Facebook wall:

Because that guy on the left there, who marched on the front lines the entire day? Well, get a closer look at what message he was pushing right there up front, in plain view of all of the other dignitaries at the lead:

Now remember, this was in Manhattan, where we are approaching the tenth anniversary of 9/11. Yet *THIS*, the day that gays started marrying, was New York's darkest day? A day that will soon bring on "the end"? Really, NOM front-liner?!

Interestingly, this guy had something else printed on the other side of his sign, which he obfuscated for some reason. And when the wind blew the sign up to where it could be seen…

…he was super quick to hide it away.

So now I'm curious: What, exactly, "is done by God"? And why the tape on this, if the whole "world's gonna end, gays the reason why" theme was considered passable?

Or perhaps the more on point question: Why is America supposed to believe that NOM's motivated by much other than religious animus when this is the kind of thing they are engendering?
