With this week's court-ordered release of previously classified NOM strategy documents, there are way more questions than answers. I know that you're one to keep your cards pretty close to the vest, but I'd like to pose a few queries nonetheless.

Peter Montgomery

Those who have been on the receiving end of these dishonorable and untruthful campaigns won't be surprised by much of what's in the NOM documents. But the brazenness of the language around racial wedge politics should make it easier to expose the group's Machiavellian heart.

Calling All Black People: NOM Wants to Use You

The revelation of its bald attempt to exploit black people and Latinos should help end the idea that NOM is an honorable group that would never engage in race-baiting. Because that is precisely what it has done.

In their quest to deny legal recognition to the long-term, loving relationships of same-sex couples, NOM goes disturbingly far off into the fringe. The most horrific document shows that they aimed at the heart of coalition building between the LGBT community and racial minorities.

The newly released documents reveal a remarkably cynical, shrewd, callous organization that is willing to say and do whatever it takes in order to prevent loving, committed same-sex couples from winning the freedom to marry.

GLAAD's Commentator Accountability Project is not about silencing anyone but having an honest debate. And you can't have an honest debate when one party is being deceptive in terms of their goals and their true feelings about the community they oppose.

A new report is highlighting the plight of a population who always seem to be ignored when African-American leaders begin debating issues pertaining to the community. The report gives a number of good solutions to this problem. I have a solution, too.

Maggie Gallagher and Her Son

How does a woman who clearly had to face so much hardship and so many challenges in raising a son on her own justify her work in ripping other families apart? Maybe one day, she will see and understand the utter disconnect.

Prop 8's Supporters Were Too Scared to Testify, But They Still Whine After the Fact

Alvin McEwen | Posted 04.09.2012 | Gay Voices
Alvin McEwen

Prop 8 was built upon deliberate lies that Maggie Gallagher, Tony Perkins, Peter Sprigg, and the rest of those pushing it were too fearful to defend in court. None of these people had the guts to take an oath and attest to the veracity of the claims they made.

New Hampshire Marriage Equality Repeal Vote Draws Near

Scott Wooledge | Posted 03.05.2012 | Gay Voices

Proponents of repealing New Hampshire's marriage equality law are trying to obfuscate the reality that there is no real impetus for the legislature to take this action. There is scant evidence to suggest that they have anything but a tiny, noisy minority on their side.
