NOM Strikes Again...And Completely Misses the Point

The National Organization for Marriage released yet another stupid commercial ad calling people to support their ignoramus cause. This time they used Carrie Prejean and recent 15 minutes of fame against Perez Hilton to pull votes in for their cause. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your stance) their efforts vastly fail.

Their new ad campaign line though, is quite interesting. And yet, easy to shutdown. They are claiming that any organization, company, church group, or business that would be against gay marriage or gay people's rights would in effect be shutdown, and that this is completely unfair.

But, if we pause and think, why would these businesses be shut down? Not because some government force would swoop in and deem them unconstitutional or some bull like that, no, the general population (comprised of gay people) would simply not take their business there anymore. That's common marketplace tactics. If people think you're racist/bigoted/close-minded asshole, they're not gonna shop at your place of business. Sorry if people care about their integrity.

Then some idiot decides to get on national television and have this stupid idea of businesses needing protection from being shutdown completly torn to pieces by this brilliant newscaster. O i love the world we're slowly moving into.
