Four states' fired-because-of-marriage 'victim': 'When did I say I was fired b/c of Civil Marriage Act?'

by Jeremy Hooper

All four state inequality campaigns are using National Organization For Marriage employee Damian Goddard as an example of someone who was supposedly fired because of marriage. But check this out. In a series of tweets with @GordonEcker, Goddard claims he has never actually claimed that he was fired because of marriage equality itself:

Just to remind you, this is what the state ads are saying:

The sole claim of the spot is that marriage in the states (in this case Maine) will lead to others being fired like Damian. And yet here he is saying, in plain language, that his firing had nothing to do with the law that legalized marriage equality in his native Canada?!? That's not just a startling admission—it's one that damns and invalidates everyone one of these ads!
