As ineffective as the HRC?

The video below is incredibly confusing. Maybe I'm slow right now, but I couldn't tell if they were for or against same-sex marriage. I thought it was just a really bad way to promote same-sex marriage.

From NOM Responds to HRC Attack!

"HRC's record of truth and honesty about their intentions is not that impressive. They once said marriage amendments weren't necessary because there were no federal court cases. Now there is one."

"They called us liars when we said public schools will teach about gay marriage if its the law--but they do in Massachusetts. Serious religious liberty scholars from Eugene Volokh to Doug Laycock to Robin Wilson acknowledge the central driving idea behind gay marriage--there is no difference between same-sex and opposite sex unions and supporters of marriage are engaging in discrimination if they think differently--will have consequences for the freedoms of traditional faith communities. To pretend otherwise is to be profoundly unserious--if not deceptive--about what gay marriage means."

Maggie Gallagher
President, National Organization for Marriage

The statement above is just as confusing as the video. "what gay marriage means"? "consequences for the freedoms of traditional faith communities"? What about my freedoms? I'd like to meet Maggie Gallagher and every actor who agreed to be in this video, especially the gay ones or the actors in the video with gay family or better yet community members. "Traditional Faith Communities" is that the new buzz word for bigoted Jesus lovers, like Fred Phelps?
