Maggie Gallagher Spearheads Launch Of NOM's New Anti-Gay Hate Group
NOM has unleashed yet another foul creature intent on thwarting civil rights, the Marriage Anti-Defamation Alliance, which will operate under the hooves of Maggie Gallagher, who only yesterday stepped down as NOM's chaircow. From their about page:
The goal of the Marriage Anti-Defamation Alliance is to create a supportive community for those who have been threatened for standing for marriage, to nip the climate of fear being created in the bud, to expose for fair-minded Americans on both sides of the debate the threats being made, to conduct high-quality qualitative and quantitative research documenting the extent of the harm, to develop legislative and community proposal to protect Americans right to engage in the core civil rights: to organize, to vote, to speak, to donate, and to write for marriage. Isolated and alone, we can be suppressed and intimidated. Together we are too many to be treated as second-class citizens.The group's first spokebigot is Frank Turek, the corporate trainer who claims to have lost regular gigs because he's published several viciously anti-gay books. Good As You has the real story: "What NOM won't tell you? That this Frank Turek goes WAY beyond simply opposing marriage equality for same-sex couples, and instead promotes the idea that gay people are embracing harmful, 'illegitimate' and 'changeable' behavior -- behavior on par with that of sociopaths, alcoholics, or even gay-bashers."
