NOM Links Homosexuality To Pedophilia (Again)
August 23, 2011 11:28 am ET by Carlos Maza
For the second time in less than a week, the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) has asserted a link between homosexuality and pedophilia.
In an August 23 blog post, NOM claimed that the effort to normalize pedophilia is following the same pattern as the effort to normalize and legalize same-sex marriages.
As evidence, NOM included an excerpt from a piece written by Joe Carter, editor of the First Things blog. Unsurprisingly, Carter’s piece actually attempted to link homosexuality, not just gay marriage, to pedophilia:
Remember when conservatives were mocked and derided for claiming that Lawrence [v. Texas] would lead to the normalization polygamy and pedophilia? Now some of those same people who sneered at us are using the decision to promote . . . polygamy and pedophilia.
What we consider a slippery slope to social disruption eventually becomes a useful ramp to normalizing degeneracy.
In case you’re keeping count, this is the third time in two weeks that NOM has promoted the idea that Lawrence v. Texas -- the landmark 2003 Supreme Court case that decriminalized gay sex -- was a faulty decision.
Bonus: If you check out the issues this post was tagged under, you’ll find what appears to be a new NOM category:

As of today, only two posts have been tagged under “Pedophilia,” and both were posted in the past week.
Apparently, the National Organization for Marriage thinks “Pedophilia” is relevant enough to be worthy of its own category. Expect a lot more of this kind of anti-LGBT propaganda from NOM in the future.
