Don’t be fooled by pretty talk, NOM opposes ANY rights for same-sex couples

Timothy Kincaid

April 30th, 2013

The National Organization for Marriage often pretends that they don’t oppose same-sex couple having some accomodations for their relationship, they just want to defend the definition of marriage. They lie.

As an illustration, today NOMBlog has a commentary about the ruling by the Texas Attorney General that cities and municipalities cannot offer any rights to same-sex couples.

In a six-page opinion, Abbott found that the constitution “prohibits political subdivisions from creating a legal status of domestic partnership and recognizing that status by offering public benefits based upon it.” He said city governments and school districts constitute political subdivisions.

That was a news report about Abbott’s position. But this is what NOM itself had to say:

Patrick is concerned that Texas law states “cities, counties and school districts cannot subvert the will of Texans” but that this is precisely what is happening in those municipalities and school districts which offer same-sex partner benefits.

The petty snideness is hard to miss. Don’t be fooled by the pretty words they use in the press; NOM has never met a lie that they thought was prohibited by the Bible.

Would that be the same Texas that claims that it shouldn’t have to abide by federal laws?

They’re not just opposed to gay couples, they are opposed to gay singles. They are opposed to gayness itself and wish to spray some gay-be-gone — they are out for nothing less than our forced ostracism and then conversion. Who are they kidding? who is anybody kidding? This has nothing to do with “rights” for NOM, or the FRC, NARTH, AFTAH, the entire “NO GAYS! movement. It has to do with nothing short of eliminating gayness.

That this is a fantasy is another matter — but that’s what they want – NO MORE GAYS! ever.
