NOM vs. every marriage & C.U state (*with assist from 'homosexuality is punishable by death' site)

by Jeremy Hooper

The ever-nuanced, ever-measured National Organization For Marriage has posted this indictment of ever state that has either full marriage equality or affords civil unions to same-sex couples:

The subject of the subsequent post is Illinois, a state that recently passed civil unions. Because of one former state senator's highly partisan assessment of that state, the shortcomings he perceives within, and his personal decision to move his family elsewhere, NOM goes ahead and accuses every single marriage or C.U. jurisdiction of being corrupt and cash-strapped. Take that, Vermont!

Oh, but wait -- it gets even more mindset-revelatory. For you see, the site that NOM is pushing to make this wild accusation is a truly unhinged far-right site called "Godfather Politics." And how does this "Godfather" site see us gay folk? Oh, well here -- look how the site assessed last year's Don't Ask Don't Tell repeal:

This week saw the end of the long standing ban on homosexuals serving in the military. This is truly a sad day for our normal men and women serving their country. With the new rules, they will find themselves at times being forced to put themselves in possibly compromising positions with sexual perverts that would even make me extremely uncomfortable and distracted from my duties.

I’ll make no bones about it. Homosexuality is not normal. It is not a normal way of life. God calls it an abomination in Leviticus 20:13
...
God looks at those who commit same-sex sex the same way he looks at murders and adulterers, all of which are punishable by death.

Homosexual Military a Sign of God’s Judgment? [Godfather Politics]

This is a site that NOM reads? That NOM trusts? That NOM links? That NOM wants its supporters to visit? That NOM uses to make its case that marriage and civil union states are bad and corrupt?

Telling.
