Open Letter to CNN’s Mark Whitaker, in re: CNN Site Advertorial by NOM’s Brian Brown

By: Tuesday May 22, 2012 8:00 pm

To: Mark Whitaker Executive Vice-President Managing Editor CNN Mr. Whitaker: You appear to be in violation of journalistic ethics. On the CNN site, you published an advertorial — by the National Organization for Marriage’s Brian Brown – without marking the advertorial as an advertorial. NOM is making money from its advertorial, while CNN simultaneously is [...]

New NOM Hate Video Features African-American Gay Bashers

By: Wednesday April 25, 2012 8:00 pm

In response to criticism of its deliberate strategy of attempting to pit African-Americans against gays, NOM is attempting to pit African-Americans against gays. NOM’s new gay-bashing hate video is titled “Is Gay Marriage a Civil Right? African-American and Latino Leaders Speak for Themselves.” For its gay-bashing hate video, NOM did not interview any African-American and [...]

Romney and NOM Fanning Hostility Against Israel

By: Tuesday April 17, 2012 12:00 pm

When the so-called National Organization for Marriage recently — once again — took its anti-gay intimidation campaign international with a Starbucks boycott — (inciting to violence against LGBTers, as well as against Starbucks employees and property) – only because Starbucks supports human rights for gay people – it translated its anti-gay hate speech into Arabic and [...]

By: Monday April 16, 2012 10:02 am

National Organization for Marriage’s DumpStarbucks campaign, which is NOM’s attempt to punish Starbucks for supporting marriage equality, went international on April 10, running online ads in Egypt, Beijing, Hong Kong, the Yunnan region of China, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Oman and Kuwait in the languages Mandarin, Arabic, Turkish, Spanish and Bahala.

NOM claims ‘militant same-sex marriage activists’ hacked web, social media sites

By: Friday April 13, 2012 7:46 am

Oh please, it’s so predictable that Brian Brown and Co. would turn this week’s pitiful online security nightmare into a fundraising opportunity, blaming the LGBT community… Dear Marriage Supporters— Early this morning, NOM’s online properties were maliciously hacked by militant same-sex marriage activists. They were able to temporarily hijack several of our online properties, including [...]

Romney saddled with bedmate National Organization for Marriage’s endorsement

By: Wednesday April 11, 2012 1:11 pm

With NOM circling the virtual drain (its social media and blog accounts have been hacked), the timing of its endorsement of Mitt Romney couldn’t have come at a worse time. Mittens has to face questions about accepting the support of a race-baiting anti-LGBT organization — as well as signing its hateful pledge to court the fundies. [...]

Meltdown at NOM: Twitter, Facebook, web site taken over by pro-equality gremlin

By: Wednesday April 11, 2012 11:17 am

Absolutely hilarious. At first blush it was thought that the National Organization for Marriage was apologizing for its race-baiting tactics. Jeremy Hooper of GoodAsYou reported that both the anti-LGBT org’s Facebook page and Twitter account also seemed to reflect a change in attitude. That’s an understatement — see below: The web site is now “down for [...]

The endless anti-gay lies of the National Organization for Marriage’s Maggie Gallagher

By: Tuesday April 10, 2012 8:22 am

In April, 2011, when GetEqual’s Michael Dixon presented NOM’s Maggie Gallagher with her “Anita Bryant Unparalleled Bigotry” Award, Gallagher said “There’s no point in conversing with someone who calls you a liar,” as though no anti-gay lie had ever passed her lips. Back in her syndicated column dated October 25, 1996, though, Gallagher conveys her [...]

By: Tuesday April 3, 2012 9:02 pm

The Oregon-based Faith and Freedom group of organizations — Faith and Freedom Network, Faith and Freedom Foundation, and Faith and Freedom PAC — has been playing a visible role in the campaign led by National Organization for Marriage’s local arm, Preserve Marriage Washington, attempting to overturn Washington’s civil marriage equality law.

Breaking: Romney PAC donated $10K to NOM under the radar, fueling anti-gay org’s race-based strategy

By: Friday March 30, 2012 2:56 pm

A $10K PAC donation is exposed in never-before-seen National Organization for Marriage financial documents. The Human Rights Campaign was exclusively able to obtain the private 2008 IRS filing from NOM via a whistleblower. It shows a contribution from an obscure Alabama PAC belonging to Romney, rather than from Mittens himself. Scott Wooledge asks the pertinent question — “How [...]
