Video: Star of various state marriage ads calls equality 'cultural sinkhole of which there really is no return'

by Jeremy Hooper

You've surely seen National Organization For Marriage employee and gay "change" advocate Damian Goddard (he runs NOM's Marriage Anti-Defamation Alliance) in marriage ads currently running in Minnesota, Maryland, and elsewhere. Now listen in as this supposed "victim" warn of how a more tolerant Minnesota will send the state "spiraling down a cultural sinkhole" of which there really is no return:

(*The hyperbole comes around :42; there's no reason to watch the purposeless ramble that follows)

Oh yeah, he's the real victim. Because that's how it typically works in these kinds of minority rights conversations, rights? Isn't it usually the person who positions the minority's gains as an evil that will sink the state who is regarded as the good, noble voice of reason long after the fight has passed? Isn't that what our history books have always taught us? [::eye roll::]

No word if we'll see Damian pop up in anymore "I'm the victim" ads between now and (the American) election day (in which he cannot even vote). We might. Then again, he might be too busy starting up the cultural sinkhole insurance business that will help keep NOM afloat once they lose at the polls, in the courts, and at the presidential level.
