NOM's Ruth Institute pits Uncle Sam against uncles, same-sex

by Jeremy Hooper

For the National Organization For Marriage's Ruth Institute, gay people's legal unions are at the forefront of the "disintegration of marriage." And that "disintegration" is "at the root of most of society's ills":

(From the Ruth Institute's latest fundraising blast, delivered via email)

It's so gross. It's bad enough that they seriously position marriages like mine as being at root a societal ill, but it's even worse that they are co-opting an iconic American image to do this un-American bidding.

What next, Ruth—an action alert in which Betsy Ross uses her knitting needles to stitch back the tattered shreds of Proposition 8? A Rosie the Riveter knockoff who confuses discrimination for strength? Or perhaps a Smokey the Bear poster that reads, "Only You Can Prevent Taxpayers' Legal Commitments!"

So many pieces of Americana; so little time to pretend your pro-discrimination mission is in line with them.
