NOM pushes extreme video; pushes away remaining stake in political moderation

by Jeremy Hooper

What's the once-pragmatic National Organization For Marriage pushing now? Well here, check out what the org posted over the weekend:

Many of you have surely seen this fear documentary (complete with kids cowering as if facing nuclear fallout) assembled by FRC, an organization that the Southern Poverty Law Center recognizes as a "hate group." But for those who haven't, you should know that this NOM-beloved doc is a sweeping attack on LGBT normalcy itself, spending an inordinate amount of time trying to convince America that gays both can and should "change":

This is what the National Organization For Marriage, the group heading up every single state's charge against civil marriage equality, now considers to be credible backing for its cause? Fine. I'm very confident that this attempt to de-gay the American population is a boon to our side at the polls. I'm even more confident that it's a surefire scale-tipper for us in any fair court of law, including SCOTUS!
