National Organization for Marriage refers to birther site in attack on lgbt education
tells it, a new poll says that a majority of Americans reject "teaching gay subjects in elementary schools:" Bob Unruh reports:
An overwhelming majority of Americans say elementary school is no place to promote the homosexual lifestyle, and even among liberals there is the strong belief that such lessons should be left outside the door of the classroom, according to a new poll.
The results are from a WND/WENZEL Poll conducted for WND by the public-opinion research and media consulting company Wenzel Strategies.
"Whether they object on moral grounds or simply out of concern that many U.S. schools are failing in their core missions of teaching basics doesn't really matter – the vast majority of American adults want this type of curriculum kept out of the classroom," Wenzel chief Fritz Wenzel said.There is just one BIG problem with that poll. It comes from the site World Net Daily, or more commonly known by some as WingNut Daily. It is an extremely homophobic site. Among other things:
- A writer on the site, Les Kinsolving, has in the past referred to the lgbt community as the "sodomy lobby." In October of last year, he called a judge’s order to stop enforcement of the military’s ban on gay and lesbian troops in the military as a "disease ridden judicial decision."
- At its online superstore (yes World Net Daily has a "superstore"), interested individuals can buy a discounted copy of The Pink Swastika, a discredited book which claims that gay men started the Nazi Party.
- In August of last year, the publication dropped conservative writer Ann Coulter as a keynote speaker from a conference it held because she earlier spoke at a conference held by a gay Republican group.
- And in February of last year, another writer on World Net Daily, Molotov Mitchell, spoke out in favor of Uganda's "Kill The Gays" bill, even evoking Martin Luther King Jr's name in defense of it.

Online 'birth certificate' document 'was changed'Analysis raises possibility content of text was alteredWay to go, NOM. I wonder how the African-Americans allies you made in Maryland and you are now making in New York would feel about your citing World Net Daily, a site working actively to delegitimize Obama's presidency. Perhaps Brian Brown and Maggie Gallagher, NOM's leaders, should remember before they spout off yet again about "unfairly being labeled as bigots" that you are always known by the company that you keep. Or in this case, the sources you cite. Related post: Eleven examples of NOM's bigotry
