NOM Boasts That Some LGBT People Oppose Marriage Equality

The National Organization for Marriage is touting a Harris Interactive poll of 1,190 LGBT voters, which found that 12 percent oppose same-sex marriage. NOM also found it important to note that 67 percent have not gotten civilly married and do not intend to in the near future, even though such a question was not even asked of straight voters. There are many possible explanations for why some gay people oppose their own equality, such as not wishing to conform to a heterosexist institute or conservative religious beliefs they give more salience than their sexual orientation. But nothing about these numbers does anything to legitimize NOM’s position and constant condemnation of LGBT people.
