NOM Strategy, Condemned: NOM's 'never desired civil disagreement' charges Maggie's fellow Family Scholar blogger
This comes from Barry Deutsch over at FamilyScholars.org (a site that was created by Maggie Gallagher's former employer, the Institute for American Values, and where Maggie is still a listed blogger):
SNIP: NOM’s representatives often talk about the value of civil discourse, and in particular complain about the use of the word “bigot” and the hostility of Proposition 8 opponents.
In light of these documents, I think we have to seriously doubt NOM’s sincerity. In fact, it’s impossible to believe that NOM has ever for a moment desired civil disagreement. NOM deliberately provokes lgbt people into anger, in order to denounce those who they succeed in provoking. I cannot imagine a clearer example of hypocrisy.
FULL: Confidential NOM strategy memo: “Provoke the gay marriage base… fan the hostility.” [Family Scholars]
It's to IAV's (David Blankenhorn's?) credit that the Family Scholars site leaves open the door to this kind of debate. But for it to be a debate, Maggie's going to have to actually challenge the blogger listed right above her. Her uncaring first pass isn't going to cut it.
