It’s getting harder and harder for the National Organization for Marriage to hide its true anti-gay animus. The group, which puts a great deal of effort into appearing mainstream and marriage-focused, has long denied that it is out to demonize LGBT people – despite the overwhelming amount of evidence to the contrary.
Today – on the same day that a New York Times article profiles the attempts of NOM pollster Frank Schubert to make the organization’s anti-LGBT messages palatable to the broader public – video of NOM’s Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse has emerged in which she, among other things, calls being LGBT a choice; says LGBT people can find salvation only through a life of chastity; and even refers to San Francisco as the city of Sodom and Gomorrah.

…what the Catholic Church teaches is very simple: that they can be saved, but they have to live a life of chastity.
And don’t miss Roback Morse’s charming reference to San Francisco as the city of Sodom and Gomorrah:
