NOM’s PR Ace Sure Knows How To Discourage NOM’s Donors

By: Thursday June 27, 2013 3:18 pm

National Organization for Marriage’s PR guy, Frank Schubert, is trying to explain away NOM’s inability to attract grassroots donors by alleging that NOM’s would-be donors aren’t giving because they’re afraid that gays will harass them if they do.  From Campaigns & Elections: Frank Schubert, president of Mission Public Affairs and political director for the National [...]

Is National Organization For Marriage Bankrupt?

By: Monday June 3, 2013 12:55 pm

In an email claiming credit in stalling the Illinois marriage equality bill, National Organization for Marriage’s Brian Brown stated today that “NOM put everything we had into this fight”.  However, “everything” was reportedly only $125,000, according to NOM’s own emails and blog post as well as blog posts from another anti-gay organization focused on this [...]

Brian Brown’s [slightly edited] statement on the vote allowing gays into Boy Scouts of America

By: Friday May 24, 2013 4:15 pm

By now you’ve heard that Boy Scouts of America voted yesterday to allow openly gay boys to participate in Scouts (until their 18th birthday).  Not surprisingly, Brian Brown of National Organization for Marriage released a statement in response. Since NOM isn’t anti-gay, just pro-straight, it’s lucky for Mr. Brown that Twitter user UK @dubeats was [...]

Family Research Council Won’t Publicly Repudiate Anti-gay Violence

By: Wednesday May 22, 2013 11:14 am

In the wake of the hate-motivated murder last week of Mark Carson in New York City’s Greenwich Village — just one in a string of anti-transgender and anti-gay hate crimes plaguing the city, LGBT rights activist Scott Wooledge challenged LGBT rights opponents to repudiate the violence: LGBT rights orgs have been very clear violence will [...]

NOM’s Brian Brown Gets $500,000 Paycheck, Complains About “Wealthy Gays”

By: Saturday May 11, 2013 7:52 pm

In a glass houses moment, National Organization for Marriage president Brian Brown chucked stones at the gays last week after the Minnesota House passed the bipartisan marriage equality bill.  Mr. Brown wrote: The recent actions in Minnesota should serve as a wakeup call to other states that have not yet passed Marriage Protection Amendments: if you [...]

NOM had better recognize that its supporters are going too far

By: Wednesday May 8, 2013 7:44 am

The above comment was left on a recent post of the National Organization for Marriage’s blog by a longtime NOM blog commentator and supporter Barb Chamberlan (she has posted over 2,000 times on NOM’s blog alone): It’s always fascinating to Google the names of children in the grips of same-sex couples. You’ll be surprised at [...]

NOM Stoops to Nasty Twitter Attack on Same-Sex Families, Marriage Equality

By: Tuesday May 7, 2013 7:45 am

How low can the National Organization for Marriage go in attacking marriage equality and same-sex families? Apparently this low via Thomas Peters, its communications director. Marriage equality does not deprive children of anything. Also, same-sex families give children a home with love. Peters’ question is a straw man argument based upon the fallacy that the [...]

NOM Wrote Off Delaware Months Ago

NOM’s Attack On Iowa Supreme Court Hasn’t Thwarted Justice

By: Friday May 3, 2013 3:45 pm

After the Iowa Supreme Court’s unanimous 2009 ruling that the state’s same-sex marriage ban was unconstitutional, National Organization for Marriage began a campaign to oust all seven justices.  In 2010, the three justices up for retention votes that year fell victim to NOM’s retribution.  (Voters retained the justice up for re-election in 2012). NOM seemed [...]

NOM-RI: “Rhode Island is not that big a deal”

By: Friday May 3, 2013 12:20 pm

Apparently the joke is on anyone who gave time or treasure to National Organization for Marriage in Rhode Island, the group that has spent the past five years trying to block passage of Rhode Island’s new marriage equality law.  Here’s what NOM-RI’s executive director Chris Plante told New York Times after Gov. Lincoln Chafee signed the [...]
