NOM should issue hip waders with their press releases

Today National Organization for Marriage seems anxious to distance themselves from Chick-fil-A's WinShape Foundation money. In a press release in Brian Brown's name, NOM claims that they have never received donations from Winshape.

The press release continues:
We support Chick-fil-A's philosophy that every person is treated with 'honor, dignity and respect—regardless of their belief, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender;' and we will continue to endorse 'Chick-fil-A Wednesdays' calling upon all supporters of marriage, free speech and religious liberty to thank Chick-fil-A's president, Dan Cathy, for taking a courageous stand to speak out in defense of marriage and his freedom to speak.
First things first:

Right now, in four states where there are ballot contests,
NOM asserts that gays are a threat to children
.

This has been their strategy for four years now and it is hardly a subtle suggestion. Forgive me if I don't think that depicts treating people with "honor, dignity and respect." NOM's inequality campaigns are disgusting and disgraceful.

As for Chick-fil-A, Dan Cathy was not courageous. Cathy articulated what we already knew. It's irrelevant. What I really want to know is how many of their 861corporate staffers are openly gay and at what level. How about non-Christians? Are they really in compliance with the Atlanta anti-discrimination ordinance in that regard? Are any of their franchisees openly gay? Indeed, were Cathy's statements a means of saying "gays and Jews need not apply?"

And please. Spare us all the free speech/religious liberty BS. Neither were ever threatened in any way whatsoever.
