The Rise and Fall of the National Organization for Marriage

Why didn’t you include all those personal condemnations, NOM religious liaison?

At his July press conference, NOM's named religious liaison, Rev. Bill Owens; compared Preident Obama to Judas, flat-out called gay people unnatural; and suggested that homosexuality and pedophila are one and the same, with President Obama supporting both.  Three clips here:

So you gotta shake your head and roll your eyes when you see this same NOM affiliate leader releasing video from this very same press conference, yet overlooking all of the obvious, personally-targeted animus that he himself put on voice.  Here's the carefully edited new clip:

The interesting thing is that I would, right now, walk many miles in support of Rev. Owens' right to call me unnatural and perverse, or even to liken our President to one of the Bible's most notorious figures. But if he's going to dish these offenses, then he's going to have to own them. Simply playing "We Shall Overcome" underneath carefully clipped video does automatically make the video righteous.
