NOM doesn't want states deciding on marriage; except, you know -- when they do

by Jeremy Hooper

"Wrong answer"? Really, NOM?

Now, of course we all know NOM wants to do the most anti-conservative thing imaginable and increase the federal resistance to same-sex marriage via a twice-failed Federal Marriage Amendment. But if states determining what is right is the "wrong answer," then what the hell is NOM doing in states like NC, MN, etc? Aren't they doing everything in their organizational power to tell state legislatures and voters what they think is right?! And in states like NH, aren't they trying to redefine current law so that it against discriminates against same-sex couples/!?

The bottom line is that the NOM view considers anyone other NOM and its supporters to be wrong. Period. End of story. Take your wedding cake and go home. Theirs is a self-centered, hypocritical stance that puts both reason and the constitution through a crude shredder. While Huntsman is still wrong to stop at civil unions, he is miles ahead of NOM's militant errancy.
