NOM Publishes Route For Their “Marriage March” Parade Of Hate

national org for marriage

The National Organization for Marriage has posted the route for its March 26 Marriage March—where up to dozens of people will block traffic and cost local police departments thousands in overtime—all in the name of depriving other Americans of the rights endowed to them by their Creator.

In a twitter post, @NOM even suggests yanking your kids out of school for this promenade of prejudice:  “Make it a road trip by bringing kids, siblings, friends, even co-workers to Tuesday’s #MarriageMarch in DC. Let’s celebrate #marriage!”

It’s gonna be a real convocation of haters, including:

* San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone (Let’s hope he’s not driving to the parade)

* Christine Boutin, president of France’s Christian Democrat Party (Because who has more right to weigh in on the American legal system than a right-wing French politician?)

* The Ruth Institute’s Jennifer Roback Morse, who demands gays and lesbian adhere to lifelong celibacy

* State Sen. Ruben Diaz, who says having two gay brothers and a lesbian granddaughter doesn’t change his feelings that the LGBT community doesn’t deserve equal rights.

* Iowa Family Leader director Bob Vander Platts, who says homosexuality is a health risk on par with second-hand smoke.

* Penny Nance of Concerned Women for America, who insists marriage equality will lead to “wholesale destruction of our society’s moral foundation”

      NOM is pathetic. Is Princeton’s Robert P. George there too? Keep your religion out of my life and out of our civil laws. John Boehner loves a parade! Wear your sun screen Johnny. Try not to get too drunk in front of the hating children.

      @JAW: Why, those against marriage equality are only using the issue as proxy for hatred of homosexuals, bisexuals, transgendered individuals and everyone else who isn’t a straight up hateful christian.

      These people want to exterminate us, there is no deal with these people, they would put us in concentration camps if they could, the comparison is an absolute because the Nazi’s were straight hateful christians too. The SS proudly marched under the banner of “Gott Mit Uns” which is “God with us”, these people want the sacrifices of tens of millions, their parents to be for nothing.

      They hate us.

      @2eo:

      True… A few on the extreme right hate us… But using visuals like the one here sure as hell ain’t gonna git them to cross over to ours side. the visual shows that there are some on Our side are more extreme then they are… It shows how hateful a few of you can be.

      Thousands of Gays died at the hand of the nazis… as well as millions of Jews and others, including many Catholics and other Christians that helped many escape.

      We need to stop being hateful and acting like a 5 yo… saying as you suggest… they said it first.

      Grow Up

      I wonder why there has been no input, so far as I know, from any of the eleven countries that allow same-sex-marriage. The list below has been put here at Queerty before.

      I would think that members of their Gay communities would be able to help us learn about how same-sex-marriage has impacted them. Would their input help refute the many naysayer voices that oppose our effort to accomplish the same as they have ?

      Is there some kind of exclusivity about our lives here that those experiences of other folks are of little interest ?

      Year that legislation was introduced in ( ).
      Netherlands (2001)
      Belgium (2003)
      Spain (2005)
      Canada (2005)
      South Africa (2006)
      Norway (2009)
      Sweden (2009)
      Portugal (2010)
      Iceland (2010)
      Argentina (2010)
      Denmark (2012)

      @JAW: Your naive belief in these people to be reasonable has become irksome, maybe you should stay away from talking about these extremist mentalists in the future.

      @JAW: I completely agree with you that the photo is inappropriate! Yes, NOM is a hateful, terrible, homophobic, organization, but we need to stop appropriating Nazi and Hitler imagery just to say how bad something is, even if it’s associated with terrible prejudice. The Nazis and Hitler systematically MURDERED 12 million people, including gays, but half of which were Jews, and eradicating the Jews was the Nazi party’s main goal and motivation — and they almost did it. And the Nazis had the support of a lot of the people, which is the really scary thing. I think it’s horrific, especially to be put up around Passover. Please take it down.

      @Adam: Pretending the past didn’t happen is a sure fire way to ensure it is repeated. These images need to be front and centre, the powers that absolutely hate us can NOT be reasoned with and they need to be shown for who they are.

      There is no give, there is only hate among these extremists, they’ll never cooperate with us, they’ll never do anything but loathe us and murder us down back alleys. These same people have never accepted interracial marriages, desegregation, the end of apartheid and all the other human hating atrocities.

      We are in a position to really show the public what these people represent, how their grandparents and parents who fought against Nazi tyranny are being undermined and their graves spat on by these people.

      We are in a great position right now, we can effectively push these lunatics off the fringe of acceptable bigotry and into the realm of unacceptable jailable hate groups.

      @2eo: I’m not saying that we should pretend the past didn’t happen; quite the opposite. We can’t ever forget the Nazis or Hitler. But in this context–in most contexts–I don’t think it’s appropriate to equate NOM with Hitler and Nazis. Their crimes were too great and horrific, and if we compare everything to Nazis and Hitler, it lessens the horror of what they did, and it loses its power.

      @2eo:

      No one is suggesting that the past did not happen… But because their beliefs do not agree with you and I, is no reason to equate them with a group that murdered 10,000,000 people plus caused the death of 70,000,000 people in World War II…

      your final line…”We are in a great position right now, we can effectively push these lunatics off the fringe of acceptable bigotry and into the realm of unacceptable jailable hate groups.”

      When the extremest, on our side (like you), use symbols like the visual we are talking about… we turn off more people, then get to join us.
