NOM now comparing same-sex marriages to oblong tomatoes, mythical lake monsters

by Jeremy Hooper

While many of us were gearing up to spend time with families that proudly embrace their LGBT relatives, the National Organization For Marriage spent Thanksgiving week working to convince America that gay cousin Charlie and his new husband Marc are really the social equivalent of misnamed vegetables and Scottish lake monsters.  I'm not even kidding.

In one Facebook post, the organization the desperately pushes graphic memes that never end up going anywhere created this little image purporting to call out some known untruths:

Because that's what same-sex couples' civil marriages are to NOM: little more than mislabeled scribbles.  Such a classy org.

But this next one astounded even a longtime NOM watcher like myself.  In a fundraising beg all about marriage equality supposedly being one great big myth that history will ultimately "set right," the NOM graphics department went so far as to create a pic that juxtaposes historical columns (in foreground) with the Loch Ness Monster (in background).  Here's that:

This one's timely, too, since Scotland seems to be on the verge of marriage equality.  With this little pic, NOM can expand its horizons.  Bigfoot and the Roswell UFO would've been far too provincial.

Now with the next big holiday around the corner, there's no word on how NOM plans to demean loving gay couples here in the month of Christmas.  Although I do hear that the graphics team is hard at work on smear campaigns involving the Grinch, coal-in-stockings, and cautionary chants about how same-sex marriage will "shoot America's eye out."
