...many conservatives are hellbent on claiming that LGBT groups like GLAAD and the Human Rights Campaign forced Mozilla to fire their CEO, that these same groups were calling for boycotts, etc. Glenn Beck even said that LGBT groups are becoming terrorists. Because that's the state of our political debate, circa 2014.

But the truth is that there is only one LGBT-focused organization throughout this entire thing that has called for an organized boycott. Only one. And that group is the anti-LGBT National Organization For Marriage, which just announced this:

Not a surprise to see NOM boycotting, since they have active (and hilariously failed) boycotts going against Starbucks and General Mills, simply because those companies stood with their LGBT customers. Why not add another for the same reason?

But let's just be 100% clear about it: when people talk about boycotts, they cannot point to GLAAD, the Human Rights Campaign, Freedom to Marry, or any other national LGBT organization. Not one. They can only point to NOM. Why is NOM so against a company making its own conscience-based decisions?
