A Little Perspective for the National Organization for Marriage
In a recent video put out by the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), an organization devoted to preventing equal protections for certain citizens of the United States, a woman with tears in her eyes tells the story of how she was bullied and intimidated by LGBT rights activists during the hate fest. What was the crime? The protesters blocked her view with their signs! Here’s the video:
This isn’t the first time NOM has played the victim card. Throughout their campaign to prevent same-sex couples from having hospital visitation rights, paying equal taxes, enjoying the same retirement benefits and generally pursuing their own happiness, NOM representatives have attempted to paint the LGBT community as oppressive radicals who are out to destroy America. Now it’s time for a little perspective:
These are the faces of our dead. These are the faces that anti-lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender sentiment said it was ok to harass, beat and even kill. On average, over four LGBT people are victimized by a hate crime each day. Hetersoexuals are victims of sexual orienation bias crimes at a significantly reduced 0.01 per day. In fact, there has not been a single reported case of an LGBT person murdering a hetersexual person simply because they are heterosexual.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again here, it’s time for NOM to come down off their cross – someone else might want to use it.
