Weekly Reader: NOM, Target, & Lynching Gay Couples

NOM's Indianapolis stop on the "Summer of Marriage" tour took center stage on Bilerico Project this week. First we broke the picture of the NOM supporter's sign that said the "solution" to same-sex marriage is to lynch gay couples, NOM-gallows2.gifbut soon enough local fundie leader Ryan McCann was in the comments section saying that the sign was a plant by pro-gay activists. Add in the coverage of the rally itself, an interview with NOM President Maggie Gallagher, a straight mom's thoughts, and a wager between Ryan and I, and you've got one helluva week's worth of NOM coverage. What else did we talk about? Great stuff like this:
