"This position underscores a view of marriage: marriage is so irrelevant, that we can deny it to unions of husband and wife, because equality trumps all."

-- From the National Organization for Marriage's blog referring to a North Carolina church's recent decision to stop legally marrying straight couples until gays and lesbians have the right to marry in the state. With a quick rewrite, you can get to what NOM really means: "This position underscores a view of marriage: marriage is so irrelevant, that we can deny it to unions of loving couples, because our religion beliefs trumps yours."
