Religious Right Group Not Happy with News of Jared Polis' Newborn

There are times when the National Organization for Marriage is so anti-gay that it burns, such as the post on its blog regarding the birth of Congressman Jared Polis' newborn son:

A simple congratulations would have been nice. Or, given that the organization does not agree with same-sex couples raising children (or existing in dignity), maybe a little silence would have been in order.

We can all predict what's going to happen next. Should NOM catch any flack from this, the organization will quickly whine about how it's being "persecuted," leaving many of us to wonder what ever happened to the good old days when "Christians" could make tasteless comments about newborns without reprisal.

It seems to me that a so-called moral organization shouldn't sound like bullies on the playground. That's what NOM comes across as here -- bullies on a playground poking fun at a little boy for living in a same-sex household.
