Of course they resent the insinuation they've been unkind to "homosexuals." That's what people do. Just because they resent the insinuation, though, it doesn't mean they haven't been unkind to "homosexuals."
Also notable is this group's approach to attract racial minorities. It doesn't involve acknowledging the existence of racism or listening to what many people of color say they are looking for in a political party. The strategy seems to mostly involve white people not doing anything, really, except bonding with people of color over a shared opposition toward homosexuality.
It's a strategy, of course, that coincides with the National's Organization for Marriage's revealed strategic goal of "driv[ing] a wedge between gays and blacks—two key Democratic constituencies" and "provok[ing] the gay marriage base into responding by denouncing [African-American] spokesmen and women as bigots" for opposing same-sex marriage.
How kind and civil.
