NOM blogger to married gays: If you think your marriages are permanent, you're wrong

by Jeremy Hooper

This tweet from the National Organization For Marriage's Culture Director is simply precious:

As I look down at the ring on my diligently typing finger, here in my state where my neighbors have supported my legal marriage in every credible poll to come down in the last five years or so, I can't help but draw a head-shaking laugh from this tweet. Here we have Thomas, an unmarried young man whose advocacy is driven by his heavy devotion to his Catholic faith, essentially telling me that my civil marriage is not going to legally last. He's saying that he knows better about this state of affairs, not from personal experience in a legal union or objective reads of the trend lines and legal rationale that are turning the tide on this conversation, but rather from his paid employment with NOM, this nation's house of "traditional marriage" spin doctoring. He's telling me I'm wrong in thinking that my and my husband's household is safe from his faith-motivated meddling.

Simply precious. Adorable, really.
