The HRC had immediately responded to the ads exposing the lies they told.
The NOM called the response an "attack." Here's Maggie's statement:
"NOM Responds to HRC Attack!So what are your thoughts on Maggie's response? Who do you think won the Hardball debate?
"HRC's record of truth and honesty about their intentions is not that impressive. They once said marriage amendments weren't necessary because there were no federal court cases. Now there is one."
"They called us liars when we said public schools will teach about gay marriage if its the law--but they do in Massachusetts. Serious religious liberty scholars from Eugene Volokh to Doug Laycock to Robin Wilson acknowledge the central driving idea behind gay marriage--there is no difference between same-sex and opposite sex unions and supporters of marriage are engaging in discrimination if they think differently--will have consequences for the freedoms of traditional faith communities. To pretend otherwise is to be profoundly unserious--if not deceptive--about what gay marriage means."
President, National Organization for Marriage
