Today in self-centered, faith-based aggression: NOM's Peters denies my marriage's legitimacy

by Jeremy Hooper

The National Organization for Marriage's deeply Catholic blogger and Cultural Director:

201211010913Gay unions are not marriages and however long this fiction may be perpetuated in law, the more harm to society and the next generation will result”…“If we erase the idea and if the law treats the idea as akin to bigotry that moms and dads each matter and each contribute something unique to the well-being of children, we have lost a core human truth and society and culture will suffer as a result. Gay people have the right to live as they choose, but they do not have the right to redefine marriage for the rest of us.

—National Organization for Marriage's Thomas Peters, speaking to The Signal (student paper of University of Houston-Clear Lake)

I love when an unmarried man (who, if he's true to his faith, is also a virgin) preaches to me about the reality of love, sex, marriage, and the worth/harm ratio attached. Operative word: preaches.
