NYT: Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich ‘Should Be Racing’ to Condemn NOM

The NYT highlights NOM's campaign to divide Blacks and gays in an editorial today, noting the GOP candidates' huggy relationship with the group:

NOM-logoThese are not the musings of a marginalized group. The day after the memos became public, National Organization for Marriage’s co-founder and chairman emeritus, Robert George, was appointed by John Boehner, the Republican House speaker, to a United States commission focused on addressing religious intolerance and extremism around the globe.

Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich have publicly aligned themselves with the group and signed its pledge to work aggressively from the White House against same-sex marriage.

Now that the group’s poisonous political approach is out in the open, Mr. Romney and the others should be racing to make clear their disapproval.

We detect no stampede.

    Ugh. Please stop posting about this not-news story. The vast majority of African-Americans do not support gay marriage, and it has nothing to with NOM. Most people in the real world have no idea who or what NOM is.

    the vast majority of gay men who blame “the black community” for homophobia are cowards who can’t put a face to their comments whose own white families don’t do a damned thing to promote LGBT Equality.

    truth.
