Does NOM think gayness is 'illegitimate' & 'destructive' & 'changeable'? Because the guy they're defending does.

by Jeremy Hooper

So okay, groups like the National Organization For Marriage can keep defending Frank Turek as just a mere "marriage protector" who's being targeted by "bigots and bullies" if that's what they care to do:

But here's the thing: By getting in bed with Turek, NOM is willfully entering into a realm where the fight over marriage (NOM's supposed cause) drops away and generalized animus towards LGBT people steps front and center (or far-right, as it were). Because the truth is that Dr. Turek goes WAAAAAAAAAAAAY beyond simply opposing marriage equality for same-sex couples, and instead promotes the idea that gay people are embracing harmful, "illegitimate" and "changeable" behavior -- behavior on par with that of sociopaths, alcoholics, or even gay-bashers. In fact, here's about nine minutes of him doing just that:

And this is just one part of a larger video series. If you click on the embedded YouTube, you'll find five other parts that reject gay people in every way humanly (and inhumanely) possible. Subject yourself to as much or as little as you like.

So again: Let NOM try to flip the "bully" script all they want. My only requirement: That they work off the actual script that Mr. Turek himself has provided and not the more politically convenient one that they wish he'd written.
