NOM's House Faggot: '... the aura of fairness and equity associated with the same-sex marriage movement will soon dissipate'

Doug Mainwaring is not terribly bright. His fifteen minutes are provided to him by National Organization for Marriage because he is a gay man who opposes equality. NOM keeps trotting Mainwaring out as Opus Dei's Witherspoon Institute provides him with space on their blog. Neither organization even accepts that gay people exist. We are people who sometimes experience same-sex attractions. Ugh!

Tuesday's piece on Witherspoon's blog is particularly remarkable for its astonishing lack of erudition. It is titled Same-Sex Marriage Fever: Prohibition Parallels. It goes downhill from there. The core of Mainwaring's argument seems to be:
Prohibitionism [sic] succeeded because its leaders won public opinion to their cause. But the Eighteenth Amendment was repealed because that same cause fell from popularity. I predict the same trajectory for the same-sex marriage movement.
That's your contention? Seriously? You want to compare the religiously motivated movement to restrict rights to the secular movement to grant rights? Mainwaring continues:
Proponents of same-sex marriage, especially the mainstream media, have conjured up a very impressive perception of near-universal consent to their agenda since last November’s ballot victories. It suddenly seems as if acceptance of same-sex marriage is an unstoppable tsunami, sweeping across the nation, knocking down principled opposition (and gathering up the gullible), i.e., everyone, in its path.

But tsunamis always recede.
"Conjured?" Nobody conjured up the polls showing that Americans overwhelmingly support the freedom to marry. Furthermore, November was a clean sweep; We went five for five including NOM's failure in a judicial retention election. Civil rights movements recede when their goals are accomplished.

Once we win a state, that's it. Does this guy think that states will undo marriage equality? Because the Catholic Church doesn't like gay people? Or because this Tea Party jerk finds such misery in being a gay man? Then the gem:
That’s why this issue is so urgent right now: Proponents know that the aura of fairness and equity associated with the same-sex marriage movement will soon dissipate.
Really Kreskin? Seriously?
