Will NOM's American Anti-Gay Rights Blog Posts Sponsor More Stigma?

by Jeremy Hooper

Another doozy from the NOM blog:

I'm seriously speechless on this one. NOM is putting the extremist view out there, apropos to nothing, seemingly just to score some sort of fear-mongered political points. Or they're just dangling these "gay rights could lead to terrorism" threats out there for the sport of it. Whatever the reason: It is in no way productive to our marriage conversation here at home (NOM's supposed focus), and surely in no way beneficial to the human rights conversation abroad (Secretary Clinton's career concern)!

Oh, and as for the whole "can't they just evolve?" thing? Well check out this AFP report to see what the protesting elements (only around 100 people in Karachi, far from a consensus) are saying at their marches:

A banner at the rally read: "Americans, we will not allow you to spread your vulgar and ugly civilisation in Pakistan."

"Through our peaceful rally we want to give message through the media that we will not allow these people (gays) to live here and they should be immediately deported out of Pakistan," said Noorul Bashar, of IJT Islamabad.

But yet it's Secretary Clinton's efforts that have fired up NOM? This is where this particular conservative group draws the line in terms of American's world outreach?!

Sorry, but this one is seriously off the rails!
