Anti-Gay Think Tank: ‘Its Not Bigorty Its Biology’

Post image for Anti-Gay Think Tank: ‘Its Not Bigorty Its Biology’

Up until November 1, the Ruth Institute, an anti-gay “think tank,” was under the supervision of NOM, the National Organization For Marriage. Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, whose nasty anti-gay attacks became just too expensive — from a financial and public relations standpoint — still runs the Ruth Institute, and now she’s free of the politically correct shackles imposed by her former employer.

NOM, by the way, may have cut ties with the Ruth Institute when they realized that they were operating at a $1 million loss this year.

The Ruth Institute has had their share of embarrassing slip-ups and ugly attacks, too numerous and frankly, some just too inconsequential to detail here.

But this weekend’s not only brought a bit of laughter to supporters of equality, it perfectly illustrated just how blinded by hate the Ruth Institute has become.

The graphic above, which reads, “Its Not Bigorty Its Biology,” was posted to the Ruth Institute’s Facebook page on Saturday. It was removed minutes ago, after LGBT activist Scott Wooledge mentioned it on Twitter.

Did no one see anything wrong with it?

Everyone make mistakes — we’ve certainly made our share of typos on this site as well. But unlike the Ruth Institute and NOM, we don’t have fundraisers, or paid employees. We don’t have the resources of a multi-million dollar parent corporation, as the Ruth Institute did until recently, to help out.

The Ruth Institute, by the way, is not only extremely opposed to same-sex marriage, they claim they are “creating an intellectual and social climate favorable to marriage,” by “making marriage cool.”

Oh, and as far as the intent of their message, we agree, sans the #1M1W part. Same-sex marriage and opposite-sex marriage are fueled by biology — we are all born this way.

teh ruth institute was started by Maggie Gallager, after it was disclosed and I personally posted this in prob 100 different blogs – her Idea of protecting tradtional marriage was to have not 1 but 2 illegitimate kids

I didnt realize she has probably gone on to other vile group, but there is always a nutter around to tke her corrupt place

No, it's IGNORANCE on their part. How ridiculous.

Shouldn't that be "biorlorgy"?

Well they aren't wrong, I'm not sure anything could rightly be called "bigorty".
