What lies behind NC's 'protect marriage' mask? GLAAD connects dots, encourages media to do same

by Jeremy Hooper

Fitzgerald is at the top of it all. In this role, she labors alongside Wooden and Creech, the three of them becoming the most prominent faces of the Vote For Marriage NC coalition. This same Vote For Marriage NC coalition proudly promotes co-laborer Ron Baity, despite much of Baity's rhetoric making Bryan Fischer look tame. Together they hope to convince Tar Heel State voters alter their most precious governing document so that it expressly denies certain citizens.

Those are the connections, in a nutshell. GLAAD is rounding up the rhetoric:

GLAAD today announced the addition of North Carolina based anti-gay activists Ron Baity, Patrick Wooden, Mark Creech and Tami Fitzgerald to its Commentator Accountability Project (CAP). The project aims to educate the media about the extreme rhetoric of many of those who are often interviewed or quoted in opposition to LGBT people and the issues that affect their lives.
