NOM compares its cause to that of abolitionists; yes, I’m serious
September 27, 2012, by Jeremy Hooper
This is actual text from a new NOM site called "Keep The Republic & Marriage":
Scholars, public figures, and average citizens who publically defend the institution of marriage as the conjugal union of one man and one woman often face character assassination and occasionally threats of physical violence. Facing similarly vicious attacks in the decades leading up to the Civil War, America’s abolitionists recalled the timeless insight that “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.” The wisdom of these words applies as much today as then. If the calculated use of fear and intimidation is permitted to dominate this important public debate, America will lose not just the time-tested institution of marriage but also endanger our form of government which depends on the free and open exchange of ideas.

I seriously have no words. These, our fellow citizens, are seriously telling America that their cause to stop marriages like mine is on a moral plan similar to that of the abolition of slavery, with their current "victimhood" status matching that who worked to free the slaves. That is not an overstatment—it is what NOM, an organization on record saying it wanted to "drive a wedge between gays and Blacks," is doing here.
Don't let them get away with it!
