The Rise and Fall of the National Organization for Marriage

The National Org. For [Firing LGBT Workers Without Cause]

November 01, 2013, by Jeremy Hooper, Guest Contributor

Not content with merely using the denigration of transgender students in California as a way to prove that they're more than just a "protect marriage" group, the National Organization For Marriage is now wagaing public war against the Employment Non-Discrimination Act.  Calling it "a weapon in same-sex 'marriage' activists' arsenal," NOM is framing the bill, which would do nothing more than ensure fair workplace practices based on a person's sexual orientation and/or gender identity (on par with workplace protections already in place for other characteristics, including religion), as some sort of dangerous "Trojan horse": 

National Organization for MarriageA bill coming up for a vote in the Senate next-week innocuously named the "Employee Non-Discrimination Act of 2013 (ENDA)" is nothing other than a Trojan horse built to attack the foundational institution of marriage between a man and a woman.

This disastrous piece of legislation is modeled on various local and state non-discrimination statutes that have already been used as tools in advancing the same-sex 'marriage' agenda around the nation. In the wake of Justice Kennedy's misguided opinion in the DOMA case (Windsor v. U.S.) it is certain that this federal ENDA bill will become a fulcrum used by same-sex 'marriage' activists to try to foist a marriage redefinition regime on the entire country.

Of course by "Trojan Horse," NOM is referring to that pesky counter worker in Alabama who simply wants to make a living wage without fear that her boss' awareness of her same-sex partner might lead to instant termination.  NOM is talking about the paralegal in Wyoming who has had one too many experiences where he is mysteriously passed over in favor of far less qualified candidates.  NOM is going after millions of hardworking LGBT Americans who, not having the easy comfort of collecting an easy paycheck from a D.C. special interest group that's built around exploiting fear, must actually retain gainful employment in order to feed themselves and their families.


And if that were not enough, NOM is directing its readers to, a site operated by the Family Research Council, one of the most anti-LGBT organizations to ever exist in American politics.  On that site, people's right to call LGBT people "immoral" is seriously positioned as a reason for opposing ENDA.  As if that's some sort of sacred workplace good.

If you ask me, NOM should be worrying less about where LGBT people get hired and worrying more about whether a pro-gay mole got hired within their own office.  If you look at their past few months of going far afield their onetime messaging, signs point to yes.
