NOM gloats over pro-equality pastor's loss of church property

by Jeremy Hooper

These days, I don't put much past the once-pragmatic National Organization For Marriage. But there's something particularly yucky about this latest NOM Blog post:

This man is losing his church. The only conceivable reason why NOM staff would tout the story is because they see it as a boon for the brand and cause, and maybe they're right in terms of their more ardent supporters. But is that really where the larger public is—at a place where we hope people with whom we disagree on matters of *CIVIL* policy would lose their faith homes because of the associated political debate? Really?

For his part, Rev. White is more than happy to remain firm against the NOM agenda:

White, who walked in the "Freedom Marches" during the civil rights movement, said he has no regrets about casting his vote in favor of gay-marriage rights and plans to vote "no" this November on a state constitutional amendment that will define marriage as being between one man and one woman.

Because what is right and is fair is not determined by property, public polling, or insensitive blog posts from D.C. special interest groups.
