Ol' quack NOM-ald had a 'farm'—BS-BS-No

by Jeremy Hooper

Schaghticoke, New York's Liberty Ridge Farm is not just a farm. It's not Old McDonald, his wife, his pigs, and his corn. Liberty Ridge Farm is a business. It is an LLC that holds daily events, private functions, corporate parties, and weddings. It's sort of an outdoor theme park, with general admission tickets that afford visitors access to corn mazes and trolley rides. As my pal Scott Hutcheson just told me: "It's no more a 'farm' than Knott's Berry Farm."

But leave it to the perennial victims at the National Organization For Marriage to twist the facts so that this for-profit company that sells weddings to the general public is nothing more than a small, Christian-run, everyday farm that's being attacked by out-of-control lesbian:

You'd think NOM would actually know the truth about farming, since they certainly know about hog wash!

The wedding services under question are like wedding services offered by any other venue. This business sells wedding packages for several thousand dollars. The question is whether or not this business is free to limit these services to only heterosexuals. The question is whether this company can discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation. Regardless of where you stand on the situation itself, the truth is that this is a conversation about how venue owners conduct for-profit business!

But that's our NOM—always the victims. This time, it doesn't take a trained farmer to smell the bull's refuse.
