National Organization for Marriage

Wednesday, April 8, 2009

The National Organization for Marriage has just released this ad.



They seek to try to stop the momentum for same sex marriage which has picked up steam with a judicial victory in Iowa and a legislative victory in the People's Republic of Vermont. Gay marriage advocates have been heartened by those two victories which at least partially mitigate the major setback that they received with the passage of Prop 8 in California last November.

If as expected, the California Supreme Court upholds Prop 8, and a decision is expected by June, then the pendulum will have swung back in the other direction again. This is going to be a long hard fight. Efforts are already underway in Iowa to overturn the pro gay marriage court decision there with a constitutional amendment, much as it has been done in California.

There's no fight. Like rights for African-Americans and rights for women, it's just a long, slow, uneven process of conservatives eventually losing. This is no different. The forces of progress will always eventually win over the forces of reaction and hatred.
That's what gets me, calling those who want to protect the sanctity of traditional marriage "the forces of reaction and hatred." Who is the real hater here? Perhaps you should look in the mirror.
