Partisan group NOM to sponsor annual Republican conference

by Jeremy Hooper

From time to time, when it befits their need to seem middle-of-the-road, the National Organization For Marriage will try to make itself seem anything other than Republican. But this week, NOM will continue to chip away at that game when the organization serves as one of the advocacy groups sponsoring, exhibiting, and possibly leading panels (schedule not yet public) at the big Southern Republican Leadership Conference:

Which is fine, NOM has every right to embrace the obviously partisan motivations that have always defined the organization. But if you support NOM, don't be fooled into thinking you're feeding anything other than an elephant. The only thing that defines this group more than its support for the political right is its support for the civilly wrong.
