NOM's Ruth Institute claimed it had Chicago Bears' support; was intercepted; fumbled

by Jeremy Hooper

I and other activists have been working behind the scenes (and publicly) today trying to get clarification as to why the National Organization For Marriage's Ruth Institute was claiming that the Chicago Bears team is in support of their exceedingly anti-gay operation. Tonight, this glorious development:

In a statement, the Bears said, "The two items featured in The Ruth Institute gala invitation were personal donations to Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse. Neither was a club donation, nor do they represent the team’s view on any social issues. Any remarks stating otherwise are false.”

Reached by phone Wednesday afternoon, Morse initially declined comment. But the website later dropped all images and references to the Bears and Morse issued a statement: "The Ruth Institute is not working with the Chicago Bears organization or any of its players past or present to promote our upcoming auction. The memorabilia we are auctioning off was acquired by me personally, not through the team or players. We understand that the Chicago Bears organization takes no position on social issues, and we regret any confusion we may have caused on this point."

JUST. STOP. DECEIVING. It's really not that difficult.
