Wherein a NOM intern takes 'have a field day' a little too literally

by Jeremy Hooper

In this latest attempt at something the kids on social media might find cool, pro-discrimination special interest group National Organization For Marriage casts a family of four into a game of tug-of-war against a team consisting of the word marriage and an ampersand:

Such an absurd effort. I mean, everyone knows marriage is much better at the potato sack race.

Then again, maybe it's not tug of war at all. Maybe this is a portrait of a family that has tied marriage to a leash and is keeping it captive in its basement, throwing the the institution mere scraps of food once in while and only letting it come outside for ten minutes of sunshine a day. That portrait of forced ownership would, after all, be a more fitting image for what NOM and its theology-driven beliefs are trying to do to shared public policy.
