NOM moves forward with 'Gays Against Gay Marriage' meme

by Jeremy Hooper

Remember those GaysAgainstGayMarriage domain names that I revealed for HRC's NOMExposed project? Yeah, well—check out the subject line that NOM's own Jennifer Roback Morse is using for her latest email blast:

The subsequent text is exactly what you'd think. This National Organization For Marriage outlet (Roback Morse's Ruth Institute is a project of NOM's Education Fund) is trying to convince America that there are all kinds of conservative gays out there who oppose marriage equality. You may not have met very many (if any), but you are told to just believe that these anti-equality gays are out there in great numbers. It's the new "ex-gay," apparently.

As I said on another forum this morning, I sincerely hope that NOM does move forward with this Gays Against Gays (GAG) meme. The parodies will be more genius than any of the ones directed at NOM's ridiculous "Gathering Storm" ad, and the intent to stir up division within the very population that the organization is designed to marginalize will reveal more about the organization's heart than they surely ever intended.
