NOM's Snide Remarks on Rep. Polis and His Newborn Son

NOM's Snide Remarks on Rep. Polis and His Newborn Son

Rep. Jared Polis, the first openly gay member of Congress to become a father, received warm wishes from around the country Friday after he and his partner announced the arrival of a newborn son.

The National Organization for Marriage saw no cause for celebration, however. "We have no clue whether it was a planned motherless family or whether he and his partner stepped in to give a motherless child a family -- since he will not say," NOM staffers wrote in a Monday blog post.

In a tweet to underscore the point, the group wrote, "Openly gay #CO Rep. @JaredPolis announces with pride that his child has no mother."

Gay Politics notes that one Twitter voice of reason responded to the anti-marriage equality group, "Do you ever take a step back and look at the things you say? All of you must be miserable inside. Sad. Get help, please."

On Friday, Polis and his partner, Marlon Reis, welcomed into the world Caspian Julius, weighing 8 lbs, 12 oz.

"Baby and parents are doing well, baby has learned to cry already! No gifts please, just nice thoughts for Caspian, humankind, the planet, and the universe!" Polis and Reis announced in a brief statement.
