Gay-inclusive 'Glee' advertises 'sin and destruction,' says NOM's 'civil' marriage voice

by Jeremy Hooper

NOM keeps trying to work the idea that the organization's first "Marriage Anti-Defamation Alliance" poster boy, Frank Turek, is nothing more than a "civil" opponent of gay marriage:

I've already shown you several examples of why this idea is so laughable (but not in a "ha ha" way). Turek is an all-out opponent of "the gay lifestyle™," with so-called "ex-gay change" being his admitted endgame. He's not just about marriage -- Frank Turek is about "saving" gay people.

Now comes yet another example. At link, you can listen to a full hour of Turek spouting off about "Glee" and the recent episode where the gay characters, Kurt and Blaine, had (off-camera) sex. Turek's problem here has absolutely nothing to do with marriage. Instead, he spends his time painting "the gay lifestyle™" as wicked, dangerous, and changeable, even going so far as to link pro-gay advocacy from shows like "Glee" to the recent spate of tragic LGBT suicides. Listen to as much or little as you want:

Stop the ruse, NOM. Your peeps say some nasty, nasty things that thoroughly dehumanize LGBT people not for the marriage licenses we seek but for the people we are. Heck, Frank Turek hasn't even made an attempt to hide his true beliefs. So if you want to get in bed with this sort of mindset, than that's totally fine, as far as your own lifestyle choices go. But don't expect the rest of us to roll over and close our eyes!!
