NOM's latest 'March for Marriage' speakers: Man who's spent 2014 fighting trans kids, guy who tells married couples they're not really married

by Jeremy Hooper

I've already given you the lay of the land regarding the previously announced (and quite hostile) speakers. Here now, the latest two to be added to the National Organization For Marriage's speaking roster for its upcoming "March for Marriage" (June 19 in DC)

Frank Schubert is of course the man who spearheaded all four of the losing marriage discrimination campaigns of 2012, as well as the mastermind for the now-rendered-unconstitutional fiasco that was Proposition 8. He's also the guy behind this year's (also unsuccessful) attempt to overturn protections that do nothing more than protect transgender schoolchildren as they attempt to learn in a more peaceful environment. If this is NOM's path forward, then I can just get out of the way and let them self destruct.

Then there's Ryan. He, like many conservative Catholics who advocate as he does, is on record admitting that he believes gay people should choose chastity. He also recently told a gay man, to his face, that he will never be "really" married, even though he can legally marry in the eyes of his state and federal government. Not too intimidated there, either.

All in all, NOM's speaking roster is shaping up to be more of the same. These are the same people who've been losing this fight—and losing it HARD—for the past decade, making the exact same arguments they've been making for years. Of course there's is hardly a movement where people are beating down doors to get in on the "fun." But it blows my mind that they think trying the same thing again and again is a way to achieve a different result.
