Senate Candidate Gives Green Light to NOM’s Anti-Gay Ad

October 14, 2010,

Carly Fiorina, the Republican senate candidate in California, is allowing an anti-gay attack ad co-produced by the National Organization for Marriage to stay on the air, according to a report by NBC News in San Francisco. The ad, targeting Latino voters, claims Fiorina’s campaign opponent, Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA), “doesn’t share our values” because she supports marriage equality. The Spanish-language ad has been called false by one of the leading non-partisan fact-checking organizations in the country, PolitiFact.com.

Those poor, bullied NOMmers

October 14, 2010,

by Rob Tisinai Our opponents have gotten quite skilled at co-opting the language we use. Maggie Gallagher and NOM in particular excel at this, calling us hateful, intolerant bigots for daring to disagree — loudly — when they question our basic human worth. Now this tactic seems to have trickled down to their followers.

NOM’s Reaction to HRC/CC IRS Filing: \“They’re trying to silence us and make it hard for us to opera

October 14, 2010,

NOM President Brian Brown told the Washington Post this morning that HRC and the Courage Campaign are “trying to silence us and make it hard for us to operate.” First off, let’s dispense with the victim complex. It’s unflattering for an anti-gay fringe group like NOM that is well out of the mainstream to claim victimhood. NOM is experiencing the most successful growth in its three-year history, raking in $10 million this year. They’re hardly having difficulty operating.

BUSTED: HRC/Courage Campaign Call on IRS to Investigate NOM’s Sister Organization

October 13, 2010,

We all know by now the National Organization for Marriage “Education Fund” and its affiliated Ruth Institute are ruthless in selling their anti-gay rage. But they got reckless. Tomorrow the Human Rights Campaign and the Courage Campaign formally requested that the Internal Revenue Service immediately investigate the Ruth Institute’s illegal political campaign activities. We have asked the IRS to revoke the Ruth Institute’s tax-exempt status and seek an injunction to prevent future violations by either the Ruth Institute or the NOM Education Fund.

One of NOM’s Best Buds

October 13, 2010,

The tenacity of the fringe is impressive—that’s why they’re on the fringe. They never give up. We learned today that Bishop Harry Jackson, the Maryland pastor who is obsessed with what goes on outside of his state in the District of Columbia when it comes to marriage equality, petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to hear a case attempting to put the rights of District citizens up to a vote of the people. HRC has called Bishop Jackson’s petition to the Court what it is: a last ditch effort by outsiders to rescind marriage equality in DC. Every court that has reviewed this case—and there have been three of them—has found Jackson’s arguments without merit.

Maggie “Manning- Up” to Fight Bullies

October 11, 2010,

Maggie Gallagher, Chairman of the Board for the National Organization for Marriage, told OneNewsNow, \"I think fundamentally we're just going to have to man-up on this one,” referring to how NOM is planning on responding to the new effort by marriage equality advocates to expose NOM for what it is. Gallagher added, \"The one most repeated command in the Bible is 'be not afraid.' We really have to take these bullies on and show them that they can't win by silencing or intimidating opposition.\" Presumably, she thinks the Human Rights Campaign and the Courage Campaign are bullies. The article ended with one of Maggie’s key messages of late. “[Gallagher] adds that donors to the ministry are safe because the organization is not required to publicly disclose the information.”
