'Julia Learns How To Discriminate against Heather's Two Mommies'

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2014-06-10 At 8.23.30 Am-1Conservative, anti-equality, religiously-motivated radio host and author Carla D'Addesi has written a pair of children's books, both starring a young girl named Julia and both geared toward rallying young people to conservative views. One of them is called Julia Learns How To Vote Wisely and is all about pushing socially conservative voting patterns to the pre-pubescent set; the other is called Julia Learns How To Marry Wisely and is all about promoting the restrictive view of marriage to impressionable children. They've got to be carefully taught—ya know?

Why mention this kid-centric project here and now? Well, because this little book has just made a major foray into legally-sanctioned discrimination and politics in general, becoming the latest sponsor of the National Organization For Marriage's upcoming March For Marriage, a day built around inscribing exclusionary (and theologically-driven) marriage views into civil law:

*D'Addesi talking about her desire to indoctrinate her religious view, which (around 10:30) includes mentioning "dog and horse" marriage in the same breath as same-sex marriage. She goes on use Leviticius to yet again put homosexuality and bestiality in the same "sexual immorality" box:

**MORE: Here she agrees that God is going to destroy us pretty soon:

NOM is becoming its own worst enemy.
