If Thomas Peters is our 'American Papist' then U.S. Catholic church is our most gay-obsessed organization

by Jeremy Hooper

National Organization For Marriage employee and increasingly prominent voice Thomas Peters (who likes to be called "American Papist") just summed up next week's election like this:

Five of six need-to-know bullet points involve gay people and their right to civil equity? Is this really where the bulk of this nation's millions of Catholic-IDed voters are placing their focus in the run-up to this critical election? Or is just that Thomas, like his Catholic-motivated employers at NOM, are determined to ring every scintilla of cash and (GOP) political connectivity out of a contrived "social issue" that a growing number of Americans (papist or not) are getting pretty sick of debating?

Look, I'm a legally married gay man who dedicates massive energy to the LGBT movement. Even I wouldn't tell voter that LGBT matters deserve 83.3% of their pre-electoral concerns! The discrimination attached to Thomas' push might be disturbing, but the obsession is crazy odd.
