NOM pushes undeniably hostile column; undeniable until next campaign, where they'll aggressively deny animus

by Jeremy Hooper

If you read this site yesterday, you probably saw the article wherein conservative columnist and University of North Carolina Wilmington professor Mike Adams used his dual positions and access to condemn his school's diversity office for providing a list of inclusive churches. A condemnatory article that Adams concluded with the claims that homosexuality "is unequivocally sinful according to both the Old and New Testaments," that "God wants you to avoid homosexuality because He loves you," and that "He knows it will hurt you badly, not to mention end your life prematurely. That is why God gave you free will instead of a gay gene." The words are dripping with pure and unadulterated animus, directed at certain kinds of people and not any sort of policy matters.

Right, so guess who is now pushing Adams' piece of work. Yup, that's right: The supposedly-only-marriage-policy-focused National Organization For Marriage:

What does this have to do with marriage, you ask? "Nothing," I answer. Adams' article is 100% focused on theology and his objections to the simple idea that people can be both faithful and pro-LGBT. And as shown above: His article concludes in the driving idea that homosexuality is sinful, life-ending, and avoidable.

It's all connected, folks.
