Interview: Same Sex Sunday with Arisha, Rick Jacobs and myself about the NOM Tour Tracker

October 07, 2010,

By Adam Bink We’ve been remiss about mentioning this here at P8TT, but today’s a good a day as any. Late last month I sat down (virtually speaking) along with Arisha and Rick for an interview on a great new podcast called Same Sex Sunday, which is run by Phil Reese and Joe Mirabella, two independent LGBT activists and colleagues. Phil and Joe wanted to talk about the NOM summer tour, what came out of it, how the Prop 8 Trial Tracker came about and where it’s going, and what the future holds for groups like NOM.

NOM Charitable Organization Violates Tax-Exempt Status by Campaigning for Senate Candidate

October 06, 2010,

The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation's largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender civil rights organization, and the Courage Campaign today called on the National Organization for Marriage, or NOM, to explain why its tax-exempt charitable organization, the Ruth Institute – a project of NOM’s Marriage Education Fund – is violating federal laws by intervening on behalf of a candidate for elected office. This past Monday, Ruth Institute President Jennifer Roback Morse spoke on behalf of her organization at a campaign stop of the “Vota Tus Valores” bus tour, a NOM-backed independent expenditure in support of California Republican U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina in San Diego. At the campaign event Morse talked about the role of the Ruth Institute, held up the organization’s signage and closed her remarks by saying, “We're very glad to be part of this electoral effort.”

NOM’s Real Message

October 05, 2010,

Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen a spike in the number of youth suicides caused by bullying and harassment based on actual or perceived sexual orientation. These unacceptable tragedies force us to take a step back and examine what factors contribute to an environment where young people feel it’s acceptable to relentlessly harass their peers, and highlight the responsibility we all have to set an example for youth that diversity is something to be embraced, not ridiculed. NOM often cites protecting children as a reason for pushing their anti-equality agenda.
