NOM Promotes Polyamorous Families

By: Friday June 28, 2013 8:57 am

Every child deserves a mother and a father and another father.  That’s the message National Organization for Marriage is sending with the family silhouette in the banner topping its latest email.  Is there something Brian Brown wants to tell us about his family? Of course NOM isn’t really promoting polyamory. Not consciously, anyway.  This is [...]

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 [...]

Marriage Debate Ramping Up in Rhode Island Legislature

By: Sunday January 13, 2013 12:59 pm

Rhode Island remains the only state in New England that doesn’t allow same-sex couples to marry. Hoping to remedy that situation this year, state Rep. Arthur Handy (D-Cranston) and Sen. Donna Nesselbush (D-Pawtucket) have introduced marriage equality bills into the state’s House and Senate. Passage of the bill seems assured in the House, with 42 [...]

By: Friday November 23, 2012 9:33 pm

National Organization for Marriage, which is dedicated to depriving same-sex couples of the freedom to marry in the United States, experienced a sharp decline in contributions between 2010 and 2011.

Ballot losses create delicious racial schadenfreude mess for religious right

By: Monday November 19, 2012 7:53 am

Some people just can’t handle losing. The recent ballot losses over marriage equality in Maryland, Maine, Washington state, and Minnesota seems to have caused chaos in the circles of religious right groups and spokespeople. Words have been said that can’t be taken back as some religious right spokespeople have begun to voice their true feelings [...]

NOM’s dangerous export of hate: ‘punishing’ pro-equality U.S. companies in countries hostile to gays

By: Sunday November 11, 2012 6:29 am

Exporting hate when you’re down and out in the U.S. fits right in with the sociopathy of NOM’s Brian Brown. I am almost at a loss for words to express the level of contempt I have for the National Organization for Marriage and its most high-profile purveyors of hate and intolerance, Brian Brown and Maggie [...]

NOM exposed again: Equality Matters goes undercover at anti-gay student conference

By: Tuesday August 28, 2012 11:50 am

NOM’s new ad pimps NC anti-gay pastor Wooden urging blacks to vote against Obama

By: Tuesday August 28, 2012 10:08 am

What a waste of cash. Of course I really don’t care if Brian Brown wants to shoot his organization’s wad trying to urge North Carolina voters to come out to vote against President Obama in the fall. The National Organization for Marriage has spent $34,000 to run an ad on radio stations here in the Triangle (a [...]

I have a new ‘non-cognitive elite’ celebrity spokesbot for NOM: Jimmie ‘J.J.’ Walker

By: Monday July 16, 2012 11:21 pm

I know that the National Organization for Marriage, as part of its battle plan, has been on the lookout for new “talent” to represent its anti-gay worldview. And it has strict criteria: [W]e also recognize the opportunity – the disproportionate potential impact of proactively seeking to gather and connect a community of artists, athletes, writers, [...]

National Organization for Marriage hires ‘non-cognitive elite’ celebrity spokesbot: Kirk Cameron

By: Thursday July 12, 2012 6:00 am

The anti-gay fringe-evangelical actor touted by NOM’s Marriage Anti-Defamation Alliance in video whining about how the media has dared to ask him about his pathetic homophobia. I guess the National Organization for Marriage can’t find enough high-profile celebrities to represent its views, you know, like Maggie Gallagher’s statement that “winning the fight to ban marriage for gay [...]
