Photo: NOM fully (and finally) owning its wholly faith-driven root

by Jeremy Hooper

Your personal faith view on religious marriage cannot be used as basis for denying other people's *civil* marriages. Period. Full stop.

And yet that is the basis on which the National Organization For Marriage will, by its own admission, will march on the nation's capital:

NOM and everyone who works there or supports the pro-discrimination organization's efforts has every right to stand for what they believe to be God's truth. They do not, however, have the right to determine that our civil marriage institution, which is wholly and always separated from the optional religious ceremony, follow their personally-held belief system.

No credible LGBT equality activist is trying to force churches to perform, recognize, or in any way get behind civil marriages; those decisions are left to the individual denominations. But if you want to know who is trying to force others to succumb to their will, look no further than this NOM advertisement. They believe that they know the infallible truth and that they have a right to force it upon all of our lives, whether we like it or not. It is wrong. It is un-American. It is NOM.
