Bill May has a plan and yet another org

Bill May (William B. May) is head of Catholics for the Common Good. These days it is doing business as the Marriage Reality Movement. May's goal is to end same-sex marriage. Ultimately this is because the Vatican does not approve of same-sex marriage — or gay people for that matter.

In an email to supporters, Mr. May explains his plan. The “reality” is that eliminating marriage equality requires a constitutional amendment. The 38 states that might ratify one remain unknown. Getting back to May's plan:

  • Forming a growing coalition of organizations working to rebuild a marriage culture all united around clear principles and objectives.
  • Developing easy-to-use video and printed resource materials to equip our members, clergy and religious with the knowledge, vocabulary and information necessary to effectively work in their parishes and communities to protect the rights of children from the lies of the culture that are being foisted upon them.
  • Creating live informative presentations in-person and on the web to engaged members and concerned Americans across the country with the goal of motivating and equipping member in their work of taking back marriage for our children and families.
It is kind of a time warp; National Organization for Marriage circa 2010. I don't know what lies Mr. May thinks are being foisted on children. However, I do know that May's idea of “taking back marriage” means no more marriage equality. While this is all futile it means more anti-gay propagandizing. Gay kids and children being raised by gay couples already hear enough of this crap. The Church would tell a gay child that he must become heterosexual or be celibate. That is the lie and that interferes with the rights of children. What would Mr. May say to the child of a gay couple?

Then the inevitable:
… we are in significant need of raising our monthly donations to cover these expansion costs on an on-going basis! Together, we have embarked on a long-term effort.

In response to this, we have developed the Sts. Louis and Zélie Martin Society to help us meet this critical monthly need.
“Developed?” The closest thing I can find to the Sts. Louis and Zélie Martin Society is the Society of the Little Flower. “Donations to the Society go directly to support the Carmelites of the Province of the Most Pure Heart of Mary.” What organization May is referring to and what they do in connection with Catholics for the Common Good or Marriage Reality Movement remains unexplained.
