Act Now: Tell the Catholic Church to Stop Donating to NOM

Brian Brown NOMPost submitted by Dan Rafter, Former HRC Associate Director of Communications

We’ve told you via our NOM Exposed project that one of NOM’s most well-known and generous donors is the Catholic fraternal organization the Knights of Columbus.

In 2009, the Knights donated $1.4 million to NOM – enough to fund most of NOM’s successful $1.8 million push in Maine to repeal the state’s marriage equality law.

More recently, we’ve learned that NOM’s funding is going toward a strategy rooted in racial division and manipulation to stem the tide of LGBT equality.

Send a strong message to the Catholic Church: tell Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the highest ranking bishop in the United States, that NOM’s hate-driven strategy is out of step with the teachings of the Church.

It’s no secret that there’s a jarring gap between the hierarchy and the average Catholic when it comes to matters of LGBT equality. In fact, a majority of Catholics support marriage equality.

Act now, and join us in sending a message that the Catholic Church must stop giving funds and lending credence to NOM.
