The Rise and Fall of the National Organization for Marriage

NOM’s ‘March for Marriage’ speaker: ‘There really isn’t any future in sodomy’ (and much more)

February 22, 2013, by Jeremy Hooper

Here is just some of what National Organization For Marriage employee Jennier Roback Morse has said about LGBT people in the past year or so:

The lawyers who will be defending NOM's position on the Defense of Marriage Act (so-called) and Proposition 8 would never say any of the above things in court.  Obviously.  If those defending marital discrimination were to say such things, it would be proof of the animus that we know to so fully drive the anti-LGBT movement.  Proof of animus would lead to a surefire win for Team Equality, since personal detestation for a person's sexual orientation—or, in the case of Morse, denial that such a sexual orientation even exists—is not a valid reason to deny marriage rights.

But while none of it will be said inside the Supreme Court building come March 26, the person who said all of it (and much more) will be rallying on behalf of NOM outside the court on that very same day.  Roback Morse, you see, is one of the speakers that NOM has booked for its planned "march for marriage":

Confirmed speakers so far (besides [Brian Brown]!) include: Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, Bishop George McKinney of the Church of God in Christ, Jennifer Roback Morse, Rev. Bill Owens Sr. — but more great pro-marriage voices will be coming on board. It will be a great program! [SOURCE]

In earlier posts, I've already noted how William Owens sees gay people as "unnatural."  Couple that with Roback Morse, who has made it clear that she feels the same way about us and our need to "change," and it's getting harder and harder to see NOM's plans as anything other than personal.  Their march is certainly not only about marriage.
