    If I show you a picture of a master and his slaves from 1795 will that make you think black people should be still discriminated against?

    What in the world does this picture have to do with NOM's purpose of banning marriage equality?

    TC, funny. Reading NOM's blog sure does lead one to believe they're much more focused on restricting the lives of gay people than celebrating marriage!

    Well Clark, I suppose being a gay marriage activist you probably are quite aware that LGBT activists have been making quite a push to neuter marriage recently.

    "If I show you a picture of a master and his slaves from 1795 will that make you think black people should be still discriminated against?"

    Seeing such a horrid analogy like the comparision between a man and a woman getting married and the enslavement of Africans makes me all the more determined to support NOM.

    I wouldn't want the government to adopt such a hostile attitude against the natural family.

    Beautiful picture. Now where are those images of 2000-year tradition weddings with two guys and two gals?

    Maybe they "evolved". Oh wait.

    I actually clicked through and saw the entire photo essay. It's really beautifully done and provides a great sampling of all the different traditions that have developed over the centuries to celebrate the uniquely beautiful union of a man and a woman. Amazing!
