NOM Speaker: Outlawing Gay Marriage Will Help Save the Economy


Tamara Scott of the Concerned Women for America was one of the speakers at the NOM rally in Des Moines on Sunday. She claimed that outlawing gay marriage will improve the economy:

Said Scott: "This is not simply a party issue. It's a Biblical issue. Now I expect somebody like SNL will come along and make fun. We'll see the Church Lady revived. That's okay. I'd rather have man mad at me than be a stench in the nostrils of the God almighty."

She added: “It costs you, the taxpayer, as high as $280 billion a year for fragmented families, that's according to the Family Research Council, May 14, 2009. That's three trillion a decade...If we would correct the breakdown of the family by one percent, we could save the taxpayer $3 billion a year. To sit back and do nothing — we become part of the problem. We all need to help out here. It's too big for any of us. There's plenty of evil to go around."

Watch Scott spew her hate, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. My ex is a major alcoholic. While we were together and had arguments, his favorite phrase was, "let's analyze this". Of course, his analyzations were always in his favor. He was never wrong and made the most amazing leaps in logic to be right. That's just what this blonde bimbo does. She doesn't make logic, she relies on organizations that make bad logic like my ex did. Sarah Palin, Carrie Precum, and this stooge make Anna Nicole Smith look pulled together.

  2. i had no idea changing my physical innate sexuality could be as easy as getting a new car. well i guess i'll go to the dealership and get a sexual attraction to women. ive had the sexual attraction to men for over a decade so its worn out anyway.

  3. Like so many right-wing bigots, the poor dear has it completely bass-ackwards: research demonstrates that, when a society approves same-sex marriage, hetero-marriage rises, too. Damage to society, apparently, arises from prejudice and restricted rights.

    This is a case where the conservative insistence on moral purity is the bane of reality and commonsense.

    There's a link to an email address for her here. Please, let her know what you think.

    But what concerns me more is the call to make a tax deductable contribution to this organization. How is this possibly a tax deductable organization? this is a lobbyist organization, plain and simple.

  6. Besides spewing hate, she's also spewing made-up "statistics". Be certain that all the conserva-blogs, reich-wing shout radio and Faux News will quote her as a "factual source".

    I think NOM should be focusing on straight marriage. Obviously, that particular institution could use some repair. Meanwhile, committed same-sex couples are still denied their basic civil rights as natural-born citizens.

    It's an unfair world.

  8. Her own statement clarifies everything.

    "...We all need to help out here. It's too big for any of us. There's plenty of evil to go around."

    The christians just want to share their evil.
