Admitting 'defeat': NH's 'protect marriage' group owns true agenda

by Jeremy Hooper

I will say one thing about New Hampshire's Cornerstone Policy Research, the org trying to repeal the marriage equality that the state currently enjoys: At least they have the backbone to admit that defeating same-sex marriage is their true goal:

As regular G-A-Y readers surely know, the National Organization For Marriage specifically instructs folks to avoid saying they want to ban, stop, defeat, or somehow put a kibosh on gay people's rights. They know that this, the truthful admission, hurts them in the polls, so that's why they only say things like "protect marriage." It's rare that we see a state or national group stray from that script.

So on this one point, I'd actually like to thank Cornerstone. They want to defeat us and our rights, and they don't care who knows it. The admission is refreshing, actually, even if the implications of that unneighborly goal are both offensive and scary.
