Jeremy Hooper points out that the National Organization for Marriage is blatantly revealing its own lies in regards to its laughable “Corporate Fairness Project.” When promoting its recent impotent boycotts of Starbucks and General Mills, NOM’s Jonathan Baker has made the following claim:
BAKER: The proper business decision is to stay neutral so as to respect the diverse views of your employees, customers, communities in which you operate, and, for publicly traded companies, your shareholders.
But this week, Chick-Fil-A president and COO Dan Cathy said that he is “praying for God’s mercy” for marriage equality activists, who he described as “prideful” and “arrogant” for having the “audacity to define what marriage is about” — hardly a “neutral” position. How did NOM react?

The Baptist Press profiles a corporate hero for marriage:
So, a company that takes an un-“neutral” position in favor of equality deserves a boycott, but a company that boldly condemns equality activists for inviting God’s judgment and subsidizes other anti-gay organizations? That’s a “corporate hero.”
This concept of neutrality is such a farce that NOM can’t even abide by its own spin. Its obvious hypocrisy is a reminder that the anti-LGBT harm associated with invisibility and exclusion are directly tied to inaction and silence.
