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:
- Responded to 2012 election by saying "there really isn't any future in sodomy"
- Said it's a "breach of faith" for orphanages to place kids with gay parents
- Asked her supporters to pray for gay people's "conversion" coupled with claim that gays are "deeply wounded spiritually"
- Linked a Nazi era photo to what she predicts will be the future shaming of same-sex marriage supporters
- At her annual ITAF conference, featured an "ex-gay" advocate who claims homosexuality is worse than incest, is like playing in traffic, and is on the same plane as pedophilia.
- Calls the Boy Scouts' gay ban "very admirable"
- Says homosexuality is"'intrinsically disordered behavior"; advises gays to be celibate; compares homosexuality to "shacking up"
- Claims gays are "at war with Mother Nature"
- Claims homosexuality is a "completely socially constructed concept"
- Touts the virtue of gays "lessening their cravings"
- Connects gays' right to marry with people who have drug problems or are mentally unstable
- Morse's Ruth Institute pushes posts that ask: "How much worse do the risks of gay sex have to be before it rates the same public health warnings as smoking?"
- Says gays need to be saved and to live a life of celibacy
- Tells students to use the phrase "same-sex attracted" because she believes gays can control their behavior
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.
