Maggie Gallagher of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) has produced a short video on how gay marriage foes can refute charges of bigotry at the Thanksgiving table.

Gallagher, who stepped down as president of the organization last year and more recently as board chair, says it's easy for gay marriage opponents to defend themselves against “indignant” supporters.

In the 3.5-minute video for the Culture War Victory Fund, a project of the American Principles Project, Gallagher doles out some “handy ammo for the holidays.”

“Here's how to talk turkey about gay marriage,” Gallagher says, then goes on to list three steps.

Step 1: “State your position briefly.”

Step 2: “Refute the charge of bigotry.”

Step 3: “A call to tolerance.”

Gallagher suggest to repeat step 3 as necessary or until “they bring in the pie.”

In refuting the charge of bigotry, Gallagher say it's “common sense” to treat different things differently. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
