NOM’s Ruth Institute Comes Close to Admitting Guilt in Campaign Activities

October 19, 2010,

In the aftermath of the IRS complaint filed by HRC and Courage Campaign charging the sister organization of NOM with engaging in illegal political campaign activities, the president of that organization responded to the charges at a Michigan conference last night, saying she may have “inadvertently blurred the lines” in her political campaign activities.” The Kalamazoo Gazette reported the comments made by Jennifer Roback Morse, president of the Ruth Institute, at a Michigan conference. “Morse’s reaction to the IRS complaint last night was basically ‘I didn't mean to,’ said Kevin Nix, NOM Project Director for HRC. “In a nation of laws, that defense doesn’t fly. As the President of a nonprofit aligned so closely with the highly-visible, $12 million National Organization for Marriage, Ruth and NOM should have known better. Campaign finance laws exist for reason. And apply even to fringe groups.”

Like George W. Bush, NOM wants federal amendment to outlaw marriage equality

October 18, 2010,

NOM president Brian Brown promoted his efforts to derail marriage equality, telling National Review in August, If the Supreme Court fails to act to protect our right to vote for marriage, Congress will have to step in with some kind of amendment. Even the GOP’s recent Pledge to America, where they outline their policy priorities and views, didn’t go as far as raising the specter of a constitutional amendment outlawing marriage equality. This just shows how out of touch NOM is and how far right NOM is.
