NOM's Roback Morse pushes piece comparing gays' kids to chattel

by Jeremy Hooper

You might know the name Doug Mainwaring. He's the National Organization For Marriage's resident "gay against gay marriage." A Maryland Tea Party activist, Mr. Mainwaring has testified against marriage bills, written numerous commentaries, and essentially dedicated his recent advocacy to opposing equal civil rights. Oh, and he's always sure to mention that he's gay. Did you hear? Because he'll tell ya.

You most likely know Jennifer Roback Morse. She's the six-figure-compensated head of NOM's Ruth Institute. Over the past year, Ms. Roback Morse has really become loose-lipped in her hostility for LGBT people, routinely advocating for gays to stop being gay altogether. In fact, I have publicly declared Ms. Roback Morse to be NOM's biggest liability, due to her seeming desire to connect the org. to a form of animus that so clearly goes beyond the stated fight of marriage.

But now check this out. Ms. Roback Morse is joining forces with Mr. Mainwaring, pushing an article in which the latter accuses gay parents of using their children as nothing more than a "contrivance meant to complete the picture of the tide house." This is "reducing them to chattel," Mr. Mainwaring so offensively determines. And Ms. Roback Morse, handily compensated NOM employee, is helping him spread the word:

Oh, I'll gladly share it, Jen! Does anyone have Justice Kennedy's email handy?
