SOUNDBITES — “It’s stressful, it’s sorrowful, it’s saddening. The marriage equality folks are making this a boycott threat. That’s sad. It has become our job now to remind Rhode Islanders that this is what’s to come. … [The event is] held by an organization that, whatever you think of our politics, is not religious, we accept folks of all faiths and of no faith.” —National Organization for Marriage staffer Christopher Plante on coffee chain Tim Hortons pulling its support for NOM’s Rhode Island “Celebrate Marriage & Family Day”
NB: We do, however, appreciate Mr. Plante calling us the marriage equality contingent. ‘Cause NOM sure as hell isn’t.
