NOM's 'anti-defamation' guy equates marriage equality with slavery

by Jeremy Hooper

Damian Goddard is the spokesperson for the National Organization For Marriage's erroneously named "Marriage Anti-Defamation Alliance." Here he is suggesting that marriages like mine both fly in the face of natural law and whose repercussions are fit to be compared to slavery:

Except, you know, for that whole thing involving the buying and selling human beings as property. Last time I checked, my legally recognized marriage didn't subjugate an entire group of rights-deprived people.

And in fact, if I were a paid employee of an organization that does, quite literally, take away people's rights based solely on who they are, I might be a eensy bit hesitant about highlighting past subjugations. Doing so is quite likely to connect some dots regarding defamation—just not the ones this "marriage anti-defamation" spokesman wants to connect.
