NOM's latest 'Anti-Defamation' star: Previously Focus on the Family's star, for completely other 'issue'

by Jeremy Hooper

Yesterday I showed you NOM's latest "Marriage Anti-Defamation" video, which features three sets of inter-connected parents who are worried that Illinois foster care programs will not be free to both accept public monies and discriminate against LGBT people. But is this really an example of something specific to marriage (or, in this case, civil unions) and foster care or is it just more animus towards basic acceptance of LGBT people? Consider the following.

Last March, Focus on the Family's resident expert at making public schools as LGBT-unfriendly as possible, Candi Cushman, was stirring up hay around one particular program at Oak Park, Illinois' Beye Elementary, wherein a welcoming schools, anti-bullying program had been initiated. And to do push this story, Candi isolated and aggrandized one certain parent: Tammy Schulz. Check out this June, 2010 report from Focus' Citizen magazine, or even just the first few paragraphs:

At the time, FOtf also said they'd filmed "an in-depth interview" with Schulz, which doesn't seem to have ever materialized. But Candi did proceed to make Tammy the focus of several subsequent commentaries. And in fact, Candi and Tammy even did some joint media appearances, like this two-parter Janet Parshall's radio show, in which Tammy quite fully admits that her intent is keeping homosexuality's normalcy away from her children's eyes and ears:

Well now fast forward to 2011. NOM, ever in search of isolated stories that they can spin and explode into national events, released a video all about foster care and the desire to have evangelical providers that can enjoy public subsidies yet not abide by state nondiscrimination requirements. And lo and behold, who do we have as one of the star couples? Yup, that's right: The very same John and Tammy Schulz:

Professional victims of the "gay agenda," these two. Wonder what something like that pays.
