NOM's Roback Morse says her #RI4M testimony is 'New Gettysburg Address'; history, Spielberg beg to differ

by Jeremy Hooper

With its talk of equality a "new birth of freedom," the Gettysburg Address is considered one of the most monumental moments of Abraham Lincoln's presidency—a preamble of sorts to what he would accomplish in his cut-short life. So what's it's historic parallel, you ask? Why Jennifer Roback Morse's testimony against marriage equality, of course!

Because why not? Her movement has already branded discrimination as "pro-marriage," framed banning people's rights as "values voting," and turned hurting LGBT families and children into "protecting families and children." Why not co-opt presidential speeches for their own flipped goals? Hell, I'm surprised NOM doesn't just go ahead and rebrand itself as a new Constitutional Convention.

Of course this all could just be setup for next month, when Ms. Roback Morse tries to crash the Oscar red carpet, brandishing a shouted insistence that she is Daniel Day Lewis' chosen surrogate.
