NRO Explains Why Gays Target Mormons

National Review Online editors explain that it’s really quite simple:

“Mormons are an easy, vulnerable target.”

To date, 30 states have voted on initiatives addressing same-sex marriage, and in every state traditional marriage has come out on top. But somehow the fact that Mormons got involved during the latest statewide referendum constitutes a bridge too far?

In truth, Mormons are a target of convenience in the opening salvo of what is sure to be a full-scale assault on much of America’s religious infrastructure, which gay activists perceive as a barrier to their aspirations. Among religious groups, Mormons are not the biggest obstacle to same-sex marriage — not by a long shot. But they are an easy target.

Anti-Mormon bigotry is unfortunately common, and gay-rights activists are cynically exploiting that fact.

As NRO says, today the Mormons, tomorrow everyone else because Prop. 8 opponents understand their “enemy” to be America’s entire religious infrastructure.

    This is despicable. No one should pick on any one group for violence or bigotry.
