NOM's NY ally: Calling gays 'spiritually unfulfilling' is 'best point'

by Jeremy Hooper

This Sunday, when the National Organization For Marriage pickets same-sex marriages on the very day that same-sex weddings are set to begin in the state, they will be supported on the local level by the New Yorker's Family Research Foundation/New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedom (same people, two groups). The two groups have been cozy for a while now:

So when this happens on Sunday, with the coalition protesting outside of various government buildings (Gov. Cuomo's office in Manhattan, the state Capitol in Albany, etc.), everyone watching should know that this local NOM ally makes absolutely no bones about their wholly faith-motivated rationale for opposing *CIVIL* marriage equality: In fact, the leaders see "spiritually unfulfilling" homosexuality as the "best point" in the rhetorical arsenal:

Makes you wonder why they're not protesting outside pro-gay churches. Because if this is the "best point" they care to make, then their best argument is against those spiritual houses that do find fulfillment in God's LGBT children, not the elected officials who were under the impression that we live in a society where public policy is disconnected from personal faith condemnations.
