“Two gay guys walk into a mosque… they were never heard from again!” Ha, ha ha! (Undercover at NOM)

Carlos Maza attended a weekend conference on defending “natural marriage” sponsored by NOM. It’s a sad, infuriating, and frightening account, giving the lie to NOM’s claim that they aren’t anti-gay, just pro-tradition.

Maza includes a wealth of links, as well, creating a great compendium of NOM’s general egregiousness.

Have look.

Easily the least funny purported joke I’ve heard in a long while.

It’s just too sad when the best antigay Christians can come up with is;

“Well, at least we’re not as bad as the muslims.”

Fatwah envy.

To Hyhybt, the “purported joke” becomes less egregious when you realize it was told by a photographer working for the conference; i.e., it came with the territory.

I’m not following your thinking Gene, it doesn’t seem any less egregious to me.

It has long been painfully apparent that NOM’s modus operandi is anti-gay animus.

And it’s interesting – every time NOM has had to debate its talking points, they lose badly. The latest being Brian Brown v. Dan Savage. Savage trounced Brown.

And in the courts – a number have exposed the bigotry to even the lowest levels of scrutiny and found the bigots arguments wanting.

Priya, maybe I should have said less surprising, given the source.

Still not following you Gene, maybe I’m slow. I don’t find this surprising at all.
