NOM finally admitting its largely Catholic motivator?

by Jeremy Hooper

I actually applaud our adversaries for this new banner image:

Because the truth is that Brian Brown, Maggie Gallagher, Thomas Peters, Robert George, and ever single person who speaks for NOM is working from an inextricably Catholic basis that they would like to apply to public policy, in every state and federally. Any arguments they make about civil marriage policy are guided by this desire, with their preconceived arguments against a spectrum of sexuality that includes gay and lesbian couples informing every last bit of 501(c)4 activity.

By hiding this root for so long, NOM did a major disservice to this debate. Their name should've always been something like National Org. For Catholic Marriage (with a Mormon undercurrent). All voters deserve to know that America's number one anti-gay-marriage organization, which is involved in every last state where the matter comes up, is working from a canonical place. So if NOM is planning to become more honest about that root, then good for them. I mean that sincerely.
