The Rise and Fall of the National Organization for Marriage

Thirty-one posts in appreciation of gays ‘shaking a fist’ at God

July 30, 2012, by Jeremy Hooper

In the past seven days, NOM has posted a whopping thirty-one posts concerning Chick-fil-A, its company heads' demonstrated lack of neutrality in the so-called "culture wars," and why the fast food company is in supposed need of NOM's support:


So just to remind you, this is what NOM is now supporting when the organization and its staff go on record in appreciation of this particular company:

DAN CATHY, president and COO of Chick-fil-A:"It's very clear in Romans chapter 1, if we look at society today, we see all the twisted up kind of stuff that's going on. Washington trying to redefine the definition of marriage and all the other kinds of things that we go—if you go upstream from that, in Romans chapter 1, you will see that because we have not acknowledged God and because we have not thanked God, that we have been left victim to the foolishness of our own thoughts, and as result, we are suffering the consequences of a society and culture who has not acknowledged God or not thanked God—he's left us to a deprived mind. It's tragic and we live in a culture of that today.""

DAN CATHY: (1:05)"…I think we are inviting God's judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say 'we know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage' and I pray God's mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about"

Not only has the National Organization For Marriage has proven itself completely okay with this kind of rhetoric, but they are actually appreciative of these kinds of ideas being used against LGBT Americans.  This, the idea that gays are shaking a fist at God and quite likely bringing judgment upon this nation, is now not only part of Chick-fil-A's inextricable DNA—it's a part of NOM's as well!
