Maine's NOM-attached 'protect marriage' guy pushes FRC's man-on-horse pamphlet

by Jeremy Hooper

The Family Research Council's pamphlet titled "The Slippery Slope of Same-Sex ‘Marriage" begins by directly comparing same-sex marriage to human-on-horse marriage, complete with an equine illustration to drive home the insanely offensive point:

When it comes to whether or not this is reasoned discourse, most would say neigh nay. But who out there thinks this and similarly nasty FRC pamphlets are not only acceptable but actually useful entrants into the public conversation on marriage? Why the man who is heading up the charge to stop marriage equality in Maine, that's who.

This from Carroll Conley, the NOM-affiliated Mainer who leads the Christian Civic League of Maine:

Really, Carroll? You bring these pamphlets to churches? Because I don't know—a zoo might be more appropriate.

It remains to be seen if Protect Marriage Maine (a project of CCL of Maine and NOM) will run man-on-horse ads in the upcoming ballot campaign. Guess they'll have to calculate the risk of making hay by equating certain citizens' weddings to those that would involve the dinner course serving of hay.
