At least National Organization could try to get the facts right every now and then. In a new polemic titled The New Target: Our Children — Silenced in the Classroom, NOM makes the following claims on behalf of (what I thought they had put a merciful end to) their Marriage Anti-Defamation Alliance:

Dear Marriage Supporter,

He’s 14 years old and goes to Church with his parents.

And he was recently kicked out of class and threatened with suspension by his teacher. What did he do wrong?

He disagreed with his economics teacher over the morality of homosexual conduct.


  • He was 16 not 14.
  • This is neither “new” nor “recently.” The incident occurred in 2010.
  • That wasn’t “it.”

This involved a high school junior named Daniel Glowacki. You can obtain a more complete understanding of the incident here. As for their Marriage Anti-Defamation Alliance;

This has nothing to do with either marriage or defamation.   

Oh, wait, it did have some relevance to gay students. I guess that is enough of a hook for NOM.
