Powerful 'His And Hers' Towel Lobby Stalls Gay Marriage Legislation

"We cannot allow the outdated values of a profiteering minority of towel makers stand in the way of social change." NASLM released a statement in response to Giuliano's criticism that expressed the organization's belief that "marriage is a sacred bond between a his and a hers."
