Hategroup caught stealing

The anti-gay industry has been caught stealing: Anti-gay extremist organisation and SPLC-certified hate group, the National Organization for Man-Lady Only Marriage, lifted a video from gay blogger Joe Jervis of Joe.My.God. without permission or attribution, and posted it to their YouTube Channel as if it was their own video.

The technical term for NOM’s action is “copyright infringement”, but the more common term is “theft”. The common term implies criminality, however, when this is a civil matter.

NOM has other activities that actually are criminal: NOM has repeatedly been ordered by courts to turn over lists of their financiers, but they have refused to comply with any of the court orders—often simply ignoring them. That is a crime.

So, it’s no surprise that they’d steal someone else’s video and pass it off as their own. But as a group that likes to pretend it’s Christian, how do they justify their theft? If they answered that question, chances are it would violate another of the ten commandments. It’s just what they do.
