National Organization for [Resisting Anti-Discrimination Laws]?

by Jeremy Hooper

Does Maggie Gallagher still oppose basic anti-discrimination protections for gays? These days, as she invests so much stock in denying civil marriage rights to gays, you're unlikely to hear the National organization For Marriage chair say she stands against anti-discrimination protections in areas like employment or housing.
