NOM's new line: Gays used cover of tinsel and eggnog to lobby Springfield (IL)

by Jeremy Hooper

While NOM's staff was busy being all wholesome and stuff with their families and cinnamon-tinged pastries, Illinois' gay marriage activists were busy pressuring state lawmakers. That's their latest bout of self-victimization:

While most citizens in the Land of Lincoln have been celebrating the Christmas and New Year holidays, gay marriage activists have been busy contacting legislators and lobbying in support of SSM.

The bill is now scheduled for a Senate committee vote as early as this evening.

Riiiiight. Because gay activists aren't "most citizens" who enjoy a nice holiday break. We're sneaky little buggers who spend every second thinking about politics—didn't ya hear?

In fact, I head about one Chicago activist who inserted subliminal messages into the version of "Santa Baby" that was played at the Illinois legislature's holiday party so that the materialistic character at the center of the song, while seemingly still asking for sables and diamond rings, was covertly seeking equal rights and empty NOM offices. We're so darn shady like that! Can't trust us with marriage, constitutions, or winter holidays.
