Audio: Oh look, another NOM personality drawing a Nazi comparison. That's fun.

by Jeremy Hooper

On a recent edition of her Catholic radio show -- the same one she cohosts with NOM's former general counsel Chuck Limandri and that NOM itself sponsors -- the National Organization For Marriage's own Jennifer Roback Mose said this of the LGBT activists who speak out against things like the anti-gay "Manhattan Declaration" iPhone app:

It just so happens that my mother-in-law has a good friend who's a Holocaust survivor. She was at my wedding, in fact. So next time I see her, I'll show her my iPhone and asked her if its presence, sans Manhattan Declaration app, is "parallel" to or as "chilling" as her own life experience. I'll be sure to let you know how that one goes.

Or on second thought: No, I would never be so historically or personally insensitive as to draw such a reductive analogy! Or to even think of doing so.

But then again, how could I afford to? After all, I'm not a self-professed "values" voter, so I don't get that special layer of armor that allows me to say such things without much if any recourse.
