National Organization for Marriage
As a proxy for the Catholic Church, National Organization for Marriage doesn't get it. National Organization for Marriage will never get it. The United States of America is past marriage discrimination. None of the moronic talking points about “procreative” marriage have made so much as a dent in the support for equality. Nor, for that matter, does anyone give a rat's ass about some boob who decided not to bake a cake for a gay wedding. He sure drew a line in the sand for … something.

NOM is putting considerable emphasis and effort into their marriage march on Thursday. They are reminiscent of the twinkie cheerleaders in the fourth quarter, with their team down 28 points. They're still at it; “Hold that line!” Someone has to ask; What on earth is the purpose of this rather expensive demonstration? Public opinion is not going to swing in the other direction because of the teachings of the Catholic Church. There is not going to be a constitutional amendment — something that never had a chance and the Supreme Court (post United States v. Windsor) is going to do what it is going to do.

Is this about advancing marriage discrimination or is this really about preserving sufficient relevance for sustaining personal income? The cast of players is limited to "B" list hasbeens and wannabes including Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee. They even brought in Ludovine de la Rochere, the leader of the failed marriage discrimination movement in France. Doug Mainwaring will tell the folks that he's gay and opposes same-sex marriage. That's his problem. Just how neurotic is that guy? He doesn't seem to realize that they are still going to call him a faggot.

Speaking of fags, the Archbishop of San Francisco, Sal Cordileone, will depart his palace and be around to tell people that marriage equality is the end of the world as we know it. One thing that celibate schmuck cannot do is point to California, after a full year of equality, and claim that gay marriage has ruined the state. Nor can he point to Massachusetts or any other equality state because, in the final analysis, marriage equality has come about fairly unnoticed and without any real impact except to the happy couples and their children.

Asses on school buses for six hours will be sore but that's not going to change a thing. These people are oblivious. They live in an altered state of consciousness where same-sex marriage is still a contentious issue. They are prepared to do whatever their bishops tell them to do (in strict obedience) no matter how nonsensical. For those who cannot afford the time to schlep back and forth from DC, the Washington Times is streaming this spectacular live on Thursday. On Friday everything will be as it was on Wednesday.

Slowly and deliberately we will continue to advance the cause for equality to an inexorable conclusion. As backwards thinking as some of these people are, as a nation and as a society we are not going backwards with them.
