New Jersey's leading 'family' group posts truly nasty video equating gays with adulterers, alcoholics

by Jeremy Hooper

Many of you have seen the following video, produced by far-far-far-right anti-gay figure Janet Folger Porter:

Well guess who is now promoting and defending this clip? That would be none other than the New Jersey Family Policy Council, the organization leading the fight to stop marriage equality in the Garden State:

I love when they attempt to "explain" the supposed nuance. Even better if/when they think this is my first time at the rodeo, believing I'm just going to accept their "explanation" as fact without making a larger point in this debate. I truly love being underestimated.

Bottom line: NJFPC did just sneer at gay people. Harshly. And their posting of this video is, in fact, a direct attempt to connect LGBT people to adulterers and alcoholics. There is no further explanation needed. They posted it to they organizational wall, and then they have proceeded to defend it. So now I will be sure that every last member of the NJ state legislature is aware of this harsh disregard for the Garden State's vast LGBT population.

As I said in my initial comment: "An astoundingly silly thing for the state's leading "family" group to promote. They would have been wise to listen to me.
