The National Organization for
Marriage's (NOM) Thomas Peters has criticized supermodel Kathy
Ireland for supporting gay marriage while opposing abortion.
“@AmericanPapist We need the support
of everyone in the life movement,” Ireland
tweeted Peters, who goes by the username AmericanPapist.
“Frankly, I'd like government out of marriages, including mine,
“@KathyIreland with respect, have you
ever examined the overwhelming data showing that being married
supports women making #prolife choices?”
“@AmericanPapist Having a loving Mom
and Dad is wonderful. Many children do not have that opportunity,
yet still have wonderful lives.”
“@KathyIreland that's absolutely
right. but gay marriage cements and enforces the idea that children
have no right to both their mom & dad.”
“@AmericanPapist This isn't a gay or
straight issue. 'Cements'? 'Enforces'? The unborn have a right to
life. That's my agenda. What's yours?”
“@KathyIreland we have the same
agenda! & 1 of the (many) ways to PRACTICALLY support #prolife
decisions is to promote the marriage culture.”
In 2010, Ireland reached out to bullied
LGBT teens in an It Gets Better video.
