Which came first: the SSM wedge or NOM?

Answer: The wedge was already there.

Same-sex marriage activists are disturbed that the National Organization for Marriage reached out to enlist the help of minorities to defend pro-gender marriage.

A recently released memo by NOM states, "The strategic goal of this project is to drive a wedge between gays and blacks — two key Democratic constituencies." Gender-segregationist Evan Wolfson of Freedom to Marry asserts that NOM "will stop at nothing to push its agenda, pitting American against American, minority against minority, family members against family members."

The elephant in the room is the big fat wedge that existed long before NOM came into existence to defend marriage from activists who want to change it entirely by removing the gender-integrated component. Perhaps they believe that if they keep blaming NOM, no one will notice that it is same-sex marriage itself that pits American against American, creates a new minority of gender-segregated "married" couples, and divides families by deliberately preventing children from having a relationship with both a mother and a father.

Living on the wedge

Gender segregationists will be extremely disappointed when they finally realize how many wedges they created by advocating for separate marriage for genders. There's the wedge between evangelicals and the gay agenda. The wedge between Catholics and gender-segregated "marriage." The wedge between parents and homosexual propaganda in school. The wedge between businesses and their money when they are sued by monogender couples. The wedge between freedom of religion, and coercing people of faith to obey new gender-segregating marriage laws. The wedge between procreative biology, and the infertility of two "married" men.

Which came first, the pro-gender position or the wedge?

For millennia, people have honored gender integration in marriage. Don't blame NOM. Gay rights activists are the ones pushing segregation. The biggest wedge of all is separating men and women in marriage.
