NOM no longer pretending its arguments are driven by something other than theology

The modern marriage equality debate is, of course, about civil marriage and civil marriage only. Faith decisions, such as whether or not to perform an always-optional religious wedding ceremony, are to remain up to the individual churches and denominations, just as they are with opposite-sex unions. This is a very easy concept to understand.

But NOM, losing on a near-daily basis in courts of both civil law and public opinion, is more and more coming out as what the organization is and has always been: a religious organization that is in this fight primarily because of the personal faith views of its founders, board, and leadership. This is just one more example of this encroaching dominance of faith-based arguments:
